Gifts and other cool stuff

What a lovely PIF gift, don't you think? I received these beauties in the mail Saturday, and have just now been able to stop a moment to show them to you.  These came to me from the wonderful Niky over at SilverNikNats. They have the most
awesome sparkle. Which makes me want a new camera even more!

I am also in absolute heaven with a new purchase. Beth Stone wrote a self published book called, Bead, Play & Love.  She had some type of shipping issues, so she decided to take it off the market just a few weeks before I discovered it.  I wrote a very humble email, asking if she had any extra copies, so she was able to find me a coupon to help with shipping, and off I went to purchase it!!!  I have been drooling over it since I got it. Haven't had a chance to try any of the stitches, cause I'm in a serious crunch for the Margie and Me challenge.  The piece I was working on will not be completed, because I ran out of a certain bead, and the store that carries them is out. :(
So I had to back up and punt very quickly!!! And I'm heading to NC for a homeschool conference on Thursday, so I only have a couple of days to finish. Urgh.
The last time I tried to write a post to publish later on, it didn't work. So I will also have to pray over that option working correctly this time as well.
Life is exciting, and I'm counting off the days to SUMMER VACATION!!!!  Kids? Who cares? I'm the one needing the break!  Seriously. Teacher is D  O  N  E... :)


  1. Those are very pretty earrings. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has done for the Margie and Me challenge. Have a great time on your vacation.

  2. Those earrings are to die for!!! I haven't gotten my book yet! I hope it comes today I can't wait to see it.

    Have a great conference and yeah for summer vacation!

  3. Very nice PIF gift earrings!!! Enjoy your new book.


I'm thrilled you stopped by! Thanks for your words of wisdom.
