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!



Ode to Autumn

Here in New England, overnight temperatures are in the 20’s this week.

Now, that’s chilly!

Autumn is my favorite season. On this frosty morning, it occurs to me that time is running out – winter is about to take over.

So before we are immersed in snowflakes and Santas, here’s a little photo tribute to one of the loveliest times of the year.
