Great contest!

Irina Miech is a favorite designer of mine, and one of my favorite blogs is having a contest to win her book.

Run over to Art Jewelry Elements before midnight on Sunday Apr 22nd, follow the instructions, and you too have a chance to win!

If you're a beady type...and why wouldn't you be, if you're here....follow AJE too! It's a wonderful new blog.

In other news....I've been busy as can be getting things ready for a few swaps in which I'm participating. I sent off beads on April 4th for a Bead Only swap created by Lori Anderson at Pretty Things, to my partner Deana Hager in PA...sent Art Charms in Blue and Brown to my Artcharms Group, for redistribution after May 1st...sent buttons Apr. 12th to my partner Cynthia Riggs for the Sweet Bead Studio Button Swap and sent focals to Renetha in OH Apr 10th for the Vocal Focal Swap, the brainchild of Bonnie at Jasper Moon, who is a fellow Ontarian. Whew!

Now I'm just waiting for the mailman, and I'll show you all what I'm creating from all these! So excited to have them arrive! I will post pictures of what I sent as soon as I am informed they have received their packages.

At the moment, I'm working on pieces for the Clay Fan Festival, held as a fundraiser for the National Inclusion Project the May long weekend, in PA. I will not unfortunately be able to attend, but I hope they will raise some money for the NIP. I will post pictures as soon as they are done.

Have a good weekend!
