Twisted Baby

Well I am all snowed in so I thought I would have some fun on my blog and I would love for you to join me.

First the game:
I was so honored to contribute to Kerry Bogart's beautiful book. It turned out great and I couldn't wait to try out some fun projects...but I loaned out the book to excited students, and somewhere along the way it has been lost.  I am so bummed cause it was signed by Kerry and was very special to me. BUT I was not going to let that stop me. 

A winter storm was a perfect day for me to gather up the things I needed to have my Twisted Day!  So before the storm got really bad I went to Hobby Lobby were the wire was 1/2 price AND bought a new Twisted book. 
So I have my book, my tools, and my beads. 
So here is the game. I will be making 3 different projects using my beads, taking pictures of them to post on my Etsy store so people can see some ideas, THEN for those of you that post a comment on my blog I will be pulling names and three of you will win the finished projects! Post on your blog, facebook and you will have your name added two more times! Make sure you let me know.
I will be posting progress on the projects and even taking suggestions! So stop by often and become a follower!
Here I go.

  1. Oh bummer! Sorry to hear about your book. I don't know if you believe in that thing where your things will gravitate to who really needs them, but if you do maybe that is how it was with your book ;)

    What a fun idea! I can't wait to see what you create! I have been pretty creative today too. I got my amazing box from my bead soup partner, Mary Harding and I just finished up a ring design I am going to send to that 500 rings series :D

    Happy creating!

    You beads are lovely!
