Peace, Love, Bead Bloggers & Swarovski Winner

GREAT news everyone! The winner of the mystery swarovski crystal is our friend Courtney of the blog, Beads by Breul. Yay! I'll wait until she receives the "mystery" crystal before revealing it!

I love popping over to visit Courtney's blog and see what's on her beading table at the moment. The BEST part is seeing that her table is like mine...a dixie paper plate!!

I happen to have an out of control pile of beads at the moment on the exact same plate! :) On top of the beads are two pairs of pliers, a cutter, pair of scissors and scotch tape (since I'm working on a hemp cord macrame project).

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to comment on that post. Here is some more good news, this is now going to be a monthly giveaway! I am so excited!! There is just nothing like sharing swarovski crystal sparkle!!

And now, here are some fabulous giveaways, tutorials and fun new projects from our bead blogger friends! Enjoy!!! :)
