I meant to post this earlier, but it completely slipped my mind! The Bluegrass Etsy Street team blog is currently having a contest to win a beautiful pair of Swarovksi earrings from Kim Ries of Creative Eye Studio. Just visit Kim's shop and leave a comment on the B.E.S.T. blog about which item you like best. The winner will be chosen at random from the comments left over the course of the month.
I didn't get to my remodeling over the weekend. I was all ready, but my mother begged me to wait until I had someone here helping me out. I think she forgets sometimes that I've been out at 10pm with power tools working on houses before. But, that's a mom for you! So, we've scheduled the 24th & 25th to tear into this place. I'm taking measurements this week and headed to Lowes for the supplies. I'm looking forward to having more space. Maybe I won't hear beads rolling around in my keyboard anymore after this! (And no, you're not getting before pictures! This place is a MESS!)
I've been busy working on my ISGB Convergence project. I'm pretty pleased with the way it's coming along. I've got the major peyote portion of the necklace done and getting ready to add some dyed pearl accents and, hopefully, I'll be done. It's due 2/1 and I want to make sure I get some faboo pics. Joyce Rooks just rocked these lampwork beads. Beautiful!
