I Won! You Know What That Means . . .

Do you remember the fabulous earrings and pendant bead that Jennifer at Glass Addictions was giving away? Well, yours truly won those fab earrings! So, in the spirit of paying it forward, I'll have to come up with a giveaway of my own. Destash? Earrings crafted by me? Peyote pattern? Scissors fob? Give me some ideas please.

I've got Ariel and the neighbor girls hooked on making earrings now. It's great. I took them all bead shopping yesterday (exhausting!). They made GREAT choices in beads. Then I taught their mom how to make the wraps on the eye pins and head pins. We made four pair here, then she went home to finish them up. I'll get her to bring them over, and this time I promise the pictures will be better.

I have my visit with the bone wizard today. If (IF) my blood pressure is down, the surgery is still schedule for the 12th. If not, then we look at the 19th. In the meantime, Natalie has been put on bed rest until the babies come.
(Mom)"Do you want me to teach you how to knit or crochet or cross stitch?"
(Daughter)"No, I don't want to do those things. I don't want to be in bed
(Mom)"You'll need to do something so you don't get too bored."
(Daughter)'heaves great big sigh'

Later that same day:
(Daughter)Maybe I should learn how to do those things. Then I could make things for my babies later.
(Mom)'secret, happy smile'

Wish me luck, beadlings! I'll come up with a giveaway for you in the next couple of days. YOU! Yes, you -- keep beading on.

Thanks, Carol Dean!

Good luck to mom and babies.. Don't you just love it when your daughter FINALLY wants to do some crafty thing that you can teach her!!

The only democratic thing to do to choose a give away is to drop the slips in a hat and pic one.

Good luck and Congrats on the win.

Thanks, Carol. She already knows how to bead. She holds the record as the teacher with the most students signed up for class when I had my store, and she was only 16 at the time! I'm sure she'll pic something.

HAH! Carol B, I kind of understand where you come from . . .

yeah,yeah! I'm voting for a pattern... it doesn't mean that I'm going to try to win it. I just love your patterns and kits, even though I have yet to complete one. (I'm an awesome procrastinator.) lol. No, I haven't finished the 2needle with a twist bracelet class I took at the BeadBazaar in SA 2yrs ago. heeheeheeh! and no I haven't finished DecoDreams yet either, I think I took that one 5yrs ago. (I'm sooo not a seed beader.) The good news is... I haven't made DaisyChains out of the lovely delicas either. :D!
