Celebrating 2 Year Blog!

I would like to thank everyone who has supported this blog for 2 years! I started this blog on Sept 15th 2007. I had run one before that, but was having many problems with Yahoo hosting my blog, so I went outside of Yahoo for a more permanent space.  In thanks, I would like to offer up a ‘Thank You’  gift! I will make a pair of my signature quill earrings (with sterling hooks!) in the colors of your choice to the Winner! I would like all, that would like to enter, to leave a comment on this blog with their color selection preference.  (Overseas welcome as well!) I will randomly draw a name (from a hat) on Tuesday at 5PM!! (will mail out that following Friday)The color quills I have to chose from are:




Deep Brown (looks like leather!)


Bright Pink


Dark Hunter Green


In other news,  I have evidently neglected to post one of my new bracelets. I have no idea how this escaped me because I have it posted in many other places LOL This is called Emerald Isle.

Emerald Isle 2

Now that I have the camera deal working, my camera is broken!! Any sales would be appreciated so I can get another camera! LOL My goal is for a Canon Rebel XS or a Nikon D3000. They are both priced the same and for the money they are the very best! The other cameras we looked at were small cell phone size cameras and although they may be nice, I want a bit more control with options, especially now that I have a light tent!! LOL

I am working on a rather big piece and it is coming along…having to take breaks to help my Son out and rebuild his band website (which I also LOVE doing!) I am beading though, so don’t give up on me! LOL

I have classes coming up at Beads On The Kennebec for November. One of those is my little ‘claim to fame’–Ice Bracelet!

I have my new design all drawn out, I just have to finish the sample and take a pic for the cover, so stay tuned for my ‘Channeled Bracelet’!!

I have one entry so far from Ronit and it is now posted on my website! HERE

and growing Prize List! HERE ( I plan on getting more in November at my next Bead Fiesta!!

I feel like I had tons more to tell you, but alas, my brain is neglecting to remind me what it was. Have a great weekend everyone!

  8. Congrats on the 2 year blog anniversary. I think I would like indigo quill earrings , since I just happen to see an indigo snake out under the cedar tree today. LOL! They are so pretty.

    I am sad to admit I had forgotten about the contest. LOL! I need to check the deadline again and see if I have time to create something.
