I must say that I was very excited to find I got a lamp-worker for a partner! It was also a bit intimidating, as I find hand-made glass beads a bit intimidating. I have bought them, but to use them is another story. Using them is akin to using the fine china. Now, I will tell you that my own mother will serve burgers from the grill on fine china. I have learned to use my china on a regular basis. But lampworked beads! Well, those were to be used when I get “better”. Just recently I have realized it’s time to actually use those beads, and life is too short. I deserve to put those very cool beads into a necklace, and I am “good enough”. So in fact, this will be a great exercise in stretching myself!
I told Denielle that I love gardening and everything to do with it, and she embraced that when she sent me my totally yummy bead soup! Look what she sent me!
Denielle also found out I just had a birthday and sent me this adorable birthday cupcake! I’m love this bead, no calories and it lasts forever.
I'd also like to mention that Lori Anderson of Pretty Things is having a giveaway. Go on over and check it out.
