All three ladies, who were selected in the Spring Bead Challenge prize drawings, have now received their beads!
The 1st prize went to Donna . . .
Caro chose these . . .
And Joyce requested these . . .
I received a lovely “thank you” note from each lady.
That really made my heart smile!
The next challenge will have an Autumn theme. (Details to follow in early September!)
Have a great week, Kids!
During a recent tour of Tanzania, Prince Charles and Camilla visited Wonder Workshop, an organization that provides jobs for disabled men and women by encouraging them to create original art using recycled materials.
In the photo below, the Prince (aided by a staff member) tries to work with seed beads. He’s enthusiastic but finds it a challenge to thread the tiny beads without eyeglasses. Word is that Camilla kindly offered him her “specs”.
She’s working on a necklace!
Wonder if they brought their finished pieces home . . .
additions to the Crown Jewels, perhaps?
And what could be better than a Friday?
Ummmm . . . maybe a Friday before a long weekend?!?!
Whether you watch a parade, attend a service, have a picnic, or just kick back with people you love, Sir Beads and I wish all of you a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend.
See you Tuesday!
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
I’m going to take a short break from the blog.
(I’m talking days, not weeks.)
It’s all good . . . I just have things that I need to catch up on.
I’ll still be checking daily for comments (and will chime in myself if there are any!)
Kelly, if you want to keep telling us the days while I’m away – I’ll be sure they post.
Talk to all of you soon!
Hey Crystal! The blog looks different!
Well, you know the old line from the Wizard of Oz: “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”
I’m just playing with a new look – doing a little tweaking. It will all look familiar again soon! (I hope) lol
