Manic Monday 1/13/14 (Silver Medal, a Gift and PrincessPoshBoutique)

Over the weekend I was able to bead and enjoy my time!!  I also received some of the best news!!  I won a silver metal for my Reaching Tranquility Miniature Dressing Screen!!!!  I am so very very very excited!  Please click below to actually see it on the Fire Mountain Gems site!  I am still to receive my actual award, but for me….this is cause for the ‘happy dance’ all over the house!!
I was also surprised by a wonderful ‘Pay it Forward’ gift in my mail box from my dear friend Kimi from Kimis Jewelry and Gifts.  She and I have worked on several creations together and she knows I simply love all of her creations.  So, she sent me a DRAGONFLY hair band… and it is BEAUTIFUL!!
How lucky am I??  What a great way to start the New Year!!
I did it!!  I finished, photographed and listed my beautiful PINK creation.  I have named it My Lady Carissa Handmade Beadwoven Raspberry Quartz Necklace, what do you think?
And the ‘making of’ video!
Yes, I am still working on this one, but I really think it will be worth the wait!!  I am now done with the 3 stones, so it is time to attach them all and create the rest of the strap…. I hope you’ll bear with me until I am done with this one! You can come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch it grow!!
Today’s featured artist is; PrincessPoshBoutique.  I have to tell you, that this amazing mom of 2 started out just making something for her own daughter and has now turned it into something amazing!!  The detail and beauty – and SPARKLE – of all her creations is wonderful!  You really have to check out this studio – I am sure you’ll find something for your child, your grandchild or even a neighbor’s child that you love!!  And remember, always support handmade artists – they create out of love!
