Another milestone...

***UPDATE*** My apologies for taking SO long, I actually drew the name the other night. It was late and I was in my jammies - so no video. But the winner is...


Congratulations Arline! We are still buried in snow out here, but I should be able to get this in the mail soon.

Well... I realized I just passed my 200th post and I wasn't even paying any attention!

I think that calls for some sort of marker, celebration or something... don't you? It just so happens I have several beaded brooches here - ready for new homes.

To celebrate the 200th post, I'm putting up for grabs the turquoise heart I just finished up. For anyone that didn't see my last post, the cab is a raku heart by the wonderfully talented Lisa Peters. It is about 2 inches by 2 inches not counting the little dangles. It could be yours if you want it.

How about it? Yes? Well - then it's simple, leave your name in the comments section with a link or email address that provides a way for me to contact you.

Anyone can play, no matter where you live or how you found me.

I'll leave comments open until midnight this Sunday, January 18 - that's Eastern time.

Good luck - and thank you so much for your support and comments over almost (*gulp*) 2 years since I started this blog.

You have been beading up a storm, along with all the storms we've been getting! Turquoise is my favorite color, it's in almost all my work, so I would be thrilled if my name comes up.
