At some point last year when I was still relatively new to blogging, I started following a beading blog called Stephies Beads & Baubles. Stephie was doing all the things on her blog that I wanted to do on mine; showcasing her jewellery making, sharing her love of beads and connecting with other beaders. I became a regular reader of Stephie’s blog and was delighted when a few months back she offered to share some beads from her fabulous collection with me. This week I was super excited when my package from Texas arrived. I’m always excited to get new beads, but to have them carefully selected for you from the collection of a fellow beader is absolutely amazing. Stephie managed to include some beads that are very much “me” and would fit right into my own collection and some that are totally new to me and will require a bit more thought as to how I’m going to use them. She also managed to read my mind and send me some much needed clasps. Now I can’t wait to get started on making some new pieces for Christmas.
So here are some pics of my new goodies and I want to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to Stephie for her amazing generosity, THANK YOU!!! 🙂 xxx
Until next time!
