The power of beading and the power of the internet community!


I hadn't intended to blog again until after the finish date of the Power of Beading Contest & Charity Fundraiser as I thought it would make it easier for people to access the details. But ... I have had so much great support from my fellow beaders that I felt a little credit was due. So, in no particular order, here are the links to some of my 'bead buddies' who have kindly spread the word for me via blogs etc.
SuzyQ of Beadweaver
JoJo of Unique You
Bianca Velder of Bianca Velder Creations
Margot Potter of The Impatient Blogger
Christine of ChrisBeads
Caroline of Crafted Gems
Lorraine of Lorraine's Place
Zoya Gutina of Gem and Beaded Jewelry and also Zoya's August newsletter
Jean Power of JeanPower.com
Ileana of Enchanted Beads
A huge "Thank you!" goes out to each and every one of them and if I have missed you off the list, or you have blogged about it, or put a link on your website, and I don't know, just send me a reminder and I will add your link to the list.
Don't forget the instructions are still available to purchase via Beading Daily and ALL funds raised go to charity. The contest to win one of two pins beaded and donated by me runs until September 12th.



Other news is that the October issue of Bead & Button is now out and the instructions for my Double Dragon neckpiece are on page 50.



I have also been fortunate to have several pieces of work included in various Etsy treasuries and although it has now expired, I curated a treasury with the title 'Raising Awareness!' to complement my fundraising project and to highlight the many other Artists on Etsy who create awareness ribbon themed items to raise money for charity.

  2. I saw several of the writeups Kerrie and was especially tickled for the mentions in Zoya's newsletter as I'm thinking that that gets some good circulation.
    I love those dragons! Can't wait to see how you made it!
