Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!!

I'm switching things up a bit tonight... Instead of a jewelry design, I'm posting the Sunday links for a change of pace.

In truth, it's because I have been working on another project today and didn't get my jewelry project done!!

The idea in my head was so simple, but it wasn't exactly working out. SO, back to the drawing board tomorrow in hopes of sharing some GNOME earrings with you!! :) Please stay tuned!! In the mean time, there are some great links below!!

I think as crafters and artists, we've all have had ideas that we thought would be so easy to implement and then found out the little bugger had other ideas. Guess that's one of the great joys of crafting...over coming the challenges. :D
