Absolutely Beads 2007

I was fortunate enough to be include in the Absolutely Beads 2007 juried show sponsored by Beads & Beyond in Bellevue, WA. I'm sharing my 2 entries.

"Miser" which I dedicated to my Dad. The story card with it read: "My Dad is a very generous man; he knows the value of a dollar and would much rather hang onto it than spend it. It's always been a source of laughter when my Mom and I would tell him we're going shopping; he was just never sure if he should grab his heart or guard his wallet."

My other entry "If Wishes Had Wings" received an Award of Merit. The story behind it "I have always believed in wishes and that they do come true. Since childhood I have been fascinated with dragonflies, such magical creatures. What better way for good wishes to go out into the world than on the wings of magic"

Pay it Forward!!

Pay it Forward!! that's the name of the game that's travelling around blogs these days. I found it on my dear friend, Beki's blog which I'd been led to by my beady friend, Charlene's blog...see it really is all about Paying it Forward! It's quite simple really, be one of the first 3 to leave a comment here and I pledge to send you a handmade gift within the next 365 days. By leaving a comment you're pledging to post Pay it Forward on your blog making the same commitment. So come on, join the fun, keep it going!!

Thank you Charlene and Beki!! this is going to be so much fun and it got me back to my blog!!

Pay It Forward rules: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange (and email me their mailing address), and who make the same pledge on their own blogs.I don't know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward meaning you will do the same for three people who comment on your blog.
