We Are Fa-mi-ly

Did you notice?

We’ve had a very special week on this blog . . .

And it’s funny because most of us had unusually busy schedules over the last several days.

In spite of that, we did our best to drop in when we could, and the comments were AMAZING! To me, it was a turning point.

Of course, for a long time now, I’ve felt that we have a special group . . . but this week we’ve taken it up another notch! My heart melts reading the lovely things you all say to each other. I don’t know what I ever did to be blessed with the lot of you, but I sure am delighted that you carve a little time from your own busy lives to gather here.

You are appreciated so very much. 😀

(And if you’re a visitor, but are shy about commenting, fear not! You’re in good hands with this sweet bunch.)


Happy Weekend!



Call for Pix

Hey there, Kids!

Your old pal lovable friend, Crystal, is looking for a teeny tiny favor . . . 😉

Oh no, what does she want THIS time?!?

To add a little fun, spice, oohs, ahhs, giggles, and smiles to the blog, I’d love to add a photo that YOU send me in a subject of YOUR choice!

There are so many ideas including:

Back yard
Favorite knick knack or collectible
Craft project you are in the middle of, or have finished.
Last night’s dinner
A book you’re reading
Favorite snack
Sentimental possession (Grandma’s brooch, etc.)
The “bargain” you just purchased, or anything you just bought!
None of the above – but something you choose to send!

A relatively clear photo is preferable, but I may be able to sharpen or brighten one that you are not sure about. Just email it to me at the following address:

crystal [at] beadhappilyeverafter [dot] com
I’d be thrilled if I got enough of them to be able to use one a week for a while.


Have a fabulous weekend. Maybe you’ll even snap a photo or two . . . just sayin’ 😉

See you Monday!
