I was feeling the love a couple weeks ago when I won not one, but two, giveaways! They both made my week because I have been having some not so great experiences lately and this reminded me you just have to wait, sometimes, for something better to happen!

First, I won Cindi Lavin's (Beading Arts) giveaway of some beautiful vintage beads! There are pearls, crystals and lucite in there! Can't wait to use them soon! She is also having a giveaway going on right now, so you might just want to hop over there and sign up!Then, imagine my delight when I found out that I won one of Gaea's sets of beads! I love her sets, and I love the colors I received! I had to get myself over to her web site, as well, and order a few things while I was there! And I forgot to order some lantern beads of hers, so I will have to go back!!!!!
Thank you so much, ladies, for picking me!

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!

These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
