So.....if you follow the Bead-It-Forward Facebook page, you will see my life has been taken over by this project!! But I'm not complaining!! I admit, it is a lot of work, but, thankfully my best friend is helping, and my nieces, and even my husband and son. It is truly inspiring to see all the work everyone has put into this project and it is a delight to open every package!
This is a little glimpse of the goings-on.....packages come in....they are numbered, logged, photographed, and uploaded to the Bead-It-Forward website.
And in the 'my-heart-is-so-full' category, I've been the lucky recipient of so many lovely things in the past couple weeks! Thank you Christine, Therese and Ana! There aren't evnough words to show my gratitude for your generosity and thoughtfulness!!!!
To add to this - I was also lucky to be included in Liz's Blue Goldstone blog hop! Participating in this hop meant a wonderful blue goldstone stash from Liz! Thank you Liz!! I've been playing with these like crazy already - and I'm chomping at the bit for the reveal on March 28! This also gave me an excuse to dash off to the local bead shop to grab some coordinating beads!
I had a few custom earring requests these past couple weeks...
This is a design similar to the above design, except after playing around with the picot edging, it looks like the beads are twisting around the edge...
Finally - this cracked me UP. Here is a picture of my iPad screen....see anything that doesn't belong?
Yup, it's a 15/0 seed beed statically clinging to the screen!
On a whole different floor than where I even keep my beads. Haha! Probably only humor that a fellow beader can appreciate! Have you ever found your beads in a funny place?
