Upcoming Giveaway & Bead Blogger Love

Sunday has rolled around and it's time to get ready for a brand new week. Before I leave you with some great bead blogger links to check out, I wanted to mention an upcoming book giveaway to celebrate the first day of spring.

Next Saturday I will be offering two copies of my book, A Bead in Time, along with a new project photo from the book. I'm so excited!! It has been great fun sharing this with all of you, thanks for coming along for the ride!! :) Stop by next weekend for all the details!

I also wanted to mention that Dagi of the Kokopelli blog has made an adorable and whimsical sun catcher from some of the sea glass I sent her just for fun when she won the ceramic heart bead from A Bead A Day in February. I just loved the wire swirls she made in between the colorful pieces of glass.

And now, to get your creativity geared up for a new week, here is a bunch of inspiration...Have a great evening!

Sweeet! Thanks for sharing my little suncatcher. The wirework is made with aluminium wire, which is easy to work with, as it is very soft.

I was a fortunate receipient of Lisa's book and I'm here to tell you it is more fantastic than can be described in words. Beautiful projects (can't pick a favorite, they are all spectacular). Whoever the lucky winners are, you will have hours of fun with the book.

Hey Lisa! Love, love your updates! I love the sea glass piece. I have a soft spot in my heart for sea glass, but don't live near the ocean where I can beach comb.

I love sharing with my friends and fans about contests! I'm happy to share the love and promote your blog! Thanks in advance for generously sharing your passion with the world. We're all grateful!
