Thoughtful Thursday 7/18/13

My goodness, I don’t know about you, but I have been just FULLLLL of beads, fun and ‘sparkles’ over the past couple of weeks!!  I have to say that I am just so very proud to be a part of this new Prima Beads Blog Team.  Not only have I had fun creating and ‘giving’ away items I have also been very happy with the support that I have received from  Prima Beads.  Behind the scene they have been ‘right on the ball’ with information and help getting this all kicked off.
So, without more – talking – I will show you today’s new creation.  Remember, these will be auctioned off to benefit the American Red Cross (probably starting next week).  
First I started with these amazing findings….
Then I added these from my own stash…
I lined out my design…
stranded it and picked out Swarovski Crystals for my earrings…
And then….finished it off!!
Yesterday I was able to finish, photograph, edit and list my newest creation!!  There is also a video to show off the ‘making’ of this necklace…so please, come check it out!!
The ‘making of’ video…
Last night was able to show off the new colors – Purple Swarovski Crystals -today I get to start off the design!!  This one should be fun – a whole new pattern/design for me!! Remember, you can watch the creation grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day!!
Today’s featured artist is: LightheartedDreamer.  This self taught artist is simply amazing!! The love and respect that you can see in each of these creations, including the ‘Sweet Puffs’ is wonderful!!  You can see the expression and personality in each one!!  You really have to go check out this studio – it will make you smile for the whole day!!  And remember, always support handmade artists when you can!!

 I just thought I’d take a moment to show off our ‘special desert from last night – oven made S’mores!!  And yes, Monster had as much chocolate ON him as IN him, but they were a fun and wonderful treat!!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.
