I have been lucky enough to have been on the receiving end of a huge dose of Craftster love recently.  After a bit of misfortune following Hurricane Irene that lead to my entire bead stash being lost, I had to withdraw from the Bead Soup Swap, organized by the amazing jennieingram.  Of course, she was gracious and let me withdraw with no negative penalty (it was before sign ups ended), but I soon discovered she did so much more than that when I started receiving boxes of beads in the mail.  Boxes and boxes and boxes from my fellow Craftsters, to the point where I started to feel like I didn't deserve such kind gestures.

Out of those boxes came more beads than I knew what to do with, so I decided to work on a bead curtain with some of my favorite beads so that I would always remember the kindness that was shown to me and remember to pass it on whenever the opportunity is present.

The beads in this curtain were provided by:

TheSapphireMoon
Onyxnox
puamelia
april again
Tero
Krafty_Karasu
sheepBlue
Missing Willow
Pirate Coley
cackle
Alchamy513
pinkleo
a generous stranger

and of course, jennieingram

I hope I didn't forget anyone!

Here is the curtain in its entirety:



And some close-ups of my favorite beads:





















Thank you to all those who contributed to this project - believe it or not, this did not even make a dent in my new stash!

How wonderful!  This post made me tear up a bit.  It feels good knowing that there are so many kind and generous people in the world.

Having swapped with jennieingram before, I've gotta say, I'm not surprised- she's an all-around awesome person, and that sounds just like her!  Grin Craftster is such a wonderful place- glad that our sisters/brothers did this for you !

I'm glad some contributors got to see the final product. And yes this post is more about the story than the craft because Craftster does indeed rock.

Happy thanksgiving! Today I'm grateful for Craftster! Smiley
