Over the weekend I was able to bead and enjoy my time!! I also received some of the best news!! I won a silver metal for my Reaching Tranquility Miniature Dressing Screen!!!! I am so very very very excited! Please click below to actually see it on the Fire Mountain Gems site! I am still to receive my actual award, but for me....this is cause for the 'happy dance' all over the house!!
I was also surprised by a wonderful 'Pay it Forward' gift in my mail box from my dear friend Kimi from Kimis Jewelry and Gifts. She and I have worked on several creations together and she knows I simply love all of her creations. So, she sent me a DRAGONFLY hair band... and it is BEAUTIFUL!!
How lucky am I?? What a great way to start the New Year!!
I did it!! I finished, photographed and listed my beautiful PINK creation. I have named it My Lady Carissa Handmade Beadwoven Raspberry Quartz Necklace, what do you think?
And the 'making of' video!
Yes, I am still working on this one, but I really think it will be worth the wait!! I am now done with the 3 stones, so it is time to attach them all and create the rest of the strap.... I hope you'll bear with me until I am done with this one! You can come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch it grow!!
Today's featured artist is; PrincessPoshBoutique. I have to tell you, that this amazing mom of 2 started out just making something for her own daughter and has now turned it into something amazing!! The detail and beauty - and SPARKLE - of all her creations is wonderful! You really have to check out this studio - I am sure you'll find something for your child, your grandchild or even a neighbor's child that you love!! And remember, always support handmade artists - they create out of love!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
