Look What Came in the Mail!
And it was wrapped so beautifully! Look at that bracelet! Isn't it gorgeous!!!!
Thanks, Erin, from Treasures Found-Inspiration is Everywhere. Erin is hosting challenges in her blog. The rules are simple. Using the theme, make a piece of jewelry.
The first challenge was:
Seek inspiration in the hardware store.
The second challenge was:
Your Grandma's jewelry box.
(That's the one where I became the winner of the random drawing.)
The current challenge is:
Your sewing box. I'm still working on my entry for that one.
These challenges have been a growth experience for me. Thank you, Erin, not only for hosting these challenges, but for helping me to see that Inspiration is everywhere. I'll never look at a hardware store, a jewelry box, or my sewing box again in the same way. You've helped me grow in ways I never would have thought I could grow.
Anyway, back to my prize. The packaging was beautiful! I almost hated to open the box and the ribbon. Gorgeous!
Erin also included a copy of Bead Star. She's featured in this magazine. I can hardly wait to take the time to read this magazine completely! Again, thank you Erin!
I plan to wear this a lot, not only during the holiday season, but well into the New Year! I am so thrilled!!! Can you tell?
