How exciting!!! I won the "Sisterhood of the Travelling Beads" giveaway.
For any of you who don't know about this, Heather Powers of Humblebeads, Art Bead Scene blog and the Bead Cruise blog generously packed up about $200 worth of her stash and is sending it on it's travels. The deal is if you win it (like I did) you get to rummage through, take what you want and replace it with what you want (approximately the same value)...so it becomes a fresh stash each time. You take pictures of the new stash and run the same competition on your blog. Thanks Heather for an amazing and generous idea!!
I also got the surprise that I had won some of Heather's beads on the Art Bead Scene blog. It's my lucky day.
I'm scrambling with bead orders after one order came with the wrong color bead...it looked a lot more green online! Don't you just hate that. It seems Artbeads are extremely busy ...so heads up and know they make take a little longer to ship out right now, they are usually super quick and we tend to get used to that. I upgraded to Express to make sure mine got here on time.
I've accepted that I will not have time to finish a second entry for Bead Dreams...kinda makes the title seem correct....some of my Bead Dreams were just that. Oh well, let's hope the one entry does well.
My first class at the new bead store went well and I've been getting a lot of kudos on my patterns. I'm kinda getting back into the groove of kitting but I had forgotten how much time ordering and packing takes.
