TWINKLE AND WISH



I have had not only the good fortune of being featured in Bead Trends again, but was asked to be the Designer Highlight a while back, and I gladly obliged. I am so honored to have been asked, and the staff at Bead Trends are so wonderful with their photography, and their professionalism, they are really terrific! I scanned a few pages here to show sweet Esther, Vero, and Renate, since they don't have access to this magazine. This is just a bit, since they were generous enough to give me about 17 pages of space! Over the next week or two I plan on listing most of it on etsy....or possibly a giveaway for the New Year!
I really would like to mention that there are soooooo many talented artists in this issue with me, and I have been blessed to know most of them, and they have helped me grow and become a better artist because of the camaraderie we share. I thank all of you, and everyone else who visits, follows, comments, and takes a peek of what goes on in my tiny part of the world. Others in this issue are Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio, Debbie Goering of Prairie Emporium, Erin Prais-Hintz of Treasures Found, Susan Kennedy of Sue Beads, Melissa Essenburg of Chinook Jewelry, and Mary Jane Dodd of Mairedodd. Being together with all of these talented women is the best Christmas present I could ask for!

Sharon, it's finally here!!! It seems like it was forever ago anticipating the January issue so I could see you being the featured designer. Well I'll admit I have not seen the January issue yet...crossing my fingers it will come tomorrow! I am so thrilled for you like you wouldn't believe. I absolutely love the Twinkle and Wish necklace...will let you know when my issue arrives(or I'm going to head out to B&N!!!).

Congrats Sharon! I hope you will look mine up ;) I can't wait to see what you did. I am in Canada so my little white box takes a little longer to get here.

Merry Christmas!!
