Bead Soup Has Arrived!

I've been anxiously awaiting my package from Anna a.k.a. The Laughing Raven and I got it today!!
Oh, and what treasures I found in my little box.
Unfortunately, there's no sun today so you'll have to come back tomorrow
for pictures of my new treasures....

Winter Treasures

Look at the pretties I picked up this weekend. 

The sun was out and it was quite seasonably warm so off I went on a scavenger hunt/hike.  
I tend to annoy my fellow hikers with my oohs and aaaahs as I try to take in the foliage around me...
and then I gobble it all up.
And what do I do with them?  They will soon be turned into molds for future beads and pendants,  especially that awesome looking pod thingy at the bottom there.  Kinda like these...

Alrighty my friends. 
My etsy bead shop has almost hit its 500th sale (yay!) and I'd like to show my gratitude by doing a giveaway, which I've never done, I don't know why, I'm really not a scrooge in any way. 
Soooo, when the mark is hit, not only will that person receive an extra set of beads,
 but I'll also send one of my blog followers a set of beads too.
So stayed tuned....

Thanks, Lori, for putting this fun together!

And a Happy New Year To You...

What a crazy couple of weeks and I've loved every minute of them...except the days I spent in bed due to a tummy flu...ugh.  I've enjoyed having my little men home from school, much time spent with family, and a beautiful end to the year. 
And to start off the New Year....

All items in my Bead shop will be 10% off for the upcoming week.  I've taken the last two weeks off and I have a lot of new ideas floating out with the old, in with the new.
Upon completing your purchase, I'll send a quick refund back your way.
Happy New Year!
