Oh my, after yesterday I am not sure if I can top all that good news....but I'll try!! How many of you entered for the newest 'A Book for Beaders' give-a-way? Did you go over and LIKE the Blended Treasure page for me?? Did you look at my set-up for the Grand Opening?? Did you sign up for classes (if you can and you are local)?? Told you there was a lot to see/read about yesterday!
BUT, I just have to have something MORE to show you today.....and here it is!!!
This morning I am going to start showing off my next set of beads I received as being a part of the Prima Blog Team. I am so excited about this next set of beads!! These were hand picked for each of us by Prima Beads. And boy, did they do an amazing job!!! I have to tell you that the moment I opened the box I had designs 'poping' in my head!! Here is just the first set.....
Today's featured item of the day - A Leaf of Golden Goodness with Ceramic Beads Necklace Set.
Although I didn't get as far yesterday as I had hoped I still made great progress! The back of this FLASK is coming along!! Just look at this flag.... Remember, you can come over and watch it grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day !!
I know a few of you have entered, I hope a few more do too! This is a great book - I've a copy of my own in my beading library! So click on the book and run over and enter.....it is very easy and pain free!! :)
Today's featured artist is: lindasgarden. This amazing lady, like many of us, started very young! At age 6 she was 'playing with yarn' (thanks to her grandmother) and by first grade she was selling her knitted headbands!! As she progressed to other arts/crafts she finally found a passion in leather! And yes, it is easy to see that these are beautiful, handcrafted and made with love!! You really have to check out her studio, she has something for everyone - and her prices are amazing!! So go look around and remember to always support handmade artists when you can!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person,
'Always do what you are afraid to do'. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
