Actually, they arrived yesterday! ;) However, it has taken me until this evening to get to the creation of this post!
You know, it's always a risky proposition to promise to make something pretty from beads sent to you by a total stranger. And that's exactly what Becki at Lit by Design was to me! I did not know about her or her lovely Etsy store until we were paired up for the Bead Soup Blog Party.
However, sometimes when you take a leap of faith, you are rewarded by the most serendipitous surprise!
These are the beads Becki sent this week.
Green is my favorite color! How in the world did she know that???
Aren't they gorgeous? I cannot wait to begin working with these wonderful pieces this next month.
I hope you will join me on March 3rd, when Lori will host the big Blog Party, where we hop from blog to blog, admiring the beautiful things that the artists created with the beads they were sent.
I'll be back from time to time, though, before the 3rd, just to let you know how things are going; and also to let you know about the other items I'm working on.
I finished these beauties just this week, and will be posting them to Etsy by the weekend.
