Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

I wanted to share this photo with you that I took when I excitedly opened a package of crystals from last week. I have had so much fun playing with all these crystals, they can truly increase my happiness quotient!

I have a couple of beads that I am still working with and will keep you posted. I also want to share the crystal bead love a little bit and would like to send a few of these beads your way, so stay tuned for a mini-giveaway in the near future.

For now, please join me in taking a peek at what our fellow bead-bloggers have been up to over the last few days. Have a great week!! Jewelry Making
Rock clubs rock, literally, when you are looking for inexpensive, local jwelry making classes.
