I hope that you had a wonderful St Patrick's day and weekend. I was 'off the grid' for a few days again last week, but... with luck... I am back! There are so many things I want to tell you about, but I have to space my announcements.... just a little!!
First I would like to show you the wonderful Bead Swaps that I have been given. I am part of the Artfire Beadweavers Guild. This wonderful guild is really picking up their activity level. And part of that is the Artfire Beadweavers Guild 1st Bead Swap. This is a fun event, with 16 members participating. The basics of a swap, Each Partner sends a mix of beads and findings to the other. They post and tell all about making their creations and then post the final products on a specific date. Here are my swaps and the swaps I sent:
1st Partner - Ms Bonnie at Bonnies Other Place. Here is what I sent her -
Just a little bit of red? I know, but as I was gathering it just called to me!! I couldn't help it!!
And here is what I got from her!!!!
Now, my 2nd partner is Georgia Mountain Arts over at Capturing Your Essence. Here is the group of beads I sent her -
And what I received -
How much fun is this???
And then there is the fun that I had creating something that was Purple and White for the CreationsColorChallengeGroup weekly challenge. This is also today's newest listing in my studio. This one, fun and 'flirty'!
And now, for those of you who entered into my last contest, here is the winner!

You must get your living by loving.
