Givaway Winner and My Beaded Bead Obsession

Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my April Echo Creative Club post, and welcome to my new followers! I truly appreciate your being here!  I had a fun time putting your names on pieces of paper for the giveaway ~ one for your comments; two more for followers. (There's just something about putting pen to paper that makes me happy =)  I then mixed them all around and picked:

Pine Ridge Treasures!

Congratulations Lisa! I will be contacting you for your mailing address shortly. =)

In other news, I am totally and completely obsessed with making beaded beads!  I learned how to make a particular beaded bead a while ago, and am now tweaking that design by changing bead sizes, amounts used, etc., trying to create my own version. Here are a few samples that turned out well ...

I'm loving the results so far and can't wait to try new patterns, make more beads and start creating with them. I am so not kidding when I say I'm obsessed ...

Wow - I am so excited to win your beautiful earrings. Thanks so much! I sent you my address in a reply to your FB message. I really like your beaded beads. It looks like they would be so hard to make and get them to look "right".
