Woohoo! Me first!  Grin

I received today from Artmomto5!

She sent me a perfect goodie bag full of beads I can't wait to play with!

First, a bottle filled to bursting with seed beads. I can never get enough of these little beauties!



Next, two bags of colorful beads. I love the patterns on the larger ones, and the smaller ones will come in handy in so many ways.



Then, some awesome wooden bee-hive beads that I totally love, and some stringing thread (requested!):



And, a whole baggie full of circles!



She also sent me TWO crafted items:



Gorgeous stones and I love the ceramic piece!

Great colors, sizes, textures all around. Thank you so much Artmomto5! I love it all!!

Abbeeroad, those beads are beautiful! And the little cubes in the necklace are so cute, I love the design. Lovely soup!

It all reminds me of spring and summer - green leaves, beehives, ocean colours, white sand... that ziploc baggie alone looks very beachy to me, yum! And seed beads always make me happy, no matter what. (No, tell a lie, if my daughter tears open one (or more) baggies, that doesn't quite make me happy.)

And me second, I guess, too!

I received from the amazing sheepBlue yesterday. She completely spoiled me.

First, some round wooden beads, glass beads, and square beads. I love the colors and patterns on these guys:



Next, some cording, chain, and findings (so handy!):



Then, some chips, and stone beads (great shapes!):



And SEED BEADS!! Awesome, awesome:



Some black beads (so, so useful), and wooden tubes:



Some larger accent beads, and clay beads:



I think a purple bead broke in transit, but I'll still find use for the pieces, it's so pretty. AND...the clay beads are actually faces (did you make these, Emma?!?!) and I LOVE THEM!



Ouch, not the greatest pic, but you get the picture. Did I mention I LOVE THESE?!?!

And last, but NOT least, the crafted items:



I'm wearing the chevron necklace today (love), and the rock is just too, too cool.

AND, she sent me some of her famous screen printed fabric and a screen printed pouch:



Just amazing. Thank you so much sheepBlue!! I hope you love your (smaller, but hopefully awesome) bead soup, too!

Yay! I'm glad you like everything. Yes I did make the clay faces...in as much as I made them from a mold I have that I love to use on occasion.  Cheesy I figured you could use them in jewelry or also in your mixed media/fabric work too  Wink

I received my awesome package from MistressJennie yesterday.  It was full of my favorite colors and types of beads. She sent me alot of stringed glass and shell (I think)beads that are perfect for some of my jewelry. Thank you SO much Mistress Jennie

Then there were lots of little baggies full of more glass and ceramic beads.

There were lots of fun little charms and trinkets that will fun to play with. I especially like the Industrial Chic parts.

And then last but not least a handcrafted necklace and earrings. They both have purple accents which I love. I will be wearing them both to school next week.

I received from both my senders! I am so inspired by all the new beads, I can't wait to see what comes of it.

Abbeeroad's package arrived on Thursday and after a long day at work it was a delight to come home to. I had to laugh because I sent Abbie some very similar wooden beads! They're gorgeous and I am happy to have some for myself. She also sent along a bunch of mixed metal spacers, clasps, etc.


I also got a ton of natural stone chips and beads which is lovely. I especially love the red chips.


There are also some beautiful red coral beads, along with some other blue, red, and purple beads.


Abbie was so sweet and sent along a few extras that I can use for my mixed media art. The slides are so fun, and the skeleton key is destined to end up in a necklace I've been daydreaming about for a little while waiting for the perfect focal piece to add to it!


She made me this fun funky necklace too, with a cool braided focal piece that I can't wait to wear.


Thank you so much Abbie! This package was a delight to behold.

My next package I received just today from onecrazymom! She sent along some findings and cording that will come in very handy for sure!


Also included were some bright seed beads and a few pre-connected strands of beads that are telling me to make it into a complete necklace just as it is. I love the dusty color palette!


There was also a baggie of bead soup for me to sort through! Included were a bunch of end caps which are great, lampworked beads, and all sorts of fun.


Onecrazymom also made me a fun pair of earrings and a stretchy bracelet with some beautiful glass beads.


Thank you so much Jen! The package is a wonderful treat to add to my bead stash!
