Is that even a word? And no, I cannot tell you one part of why I am in such a happy mood, but I am. And I will share with you as soon as I can :)
However, I have many other 'shareable' parts.
For once - I finished and sent my charms for Jennifer's Charm Swap. Here is a picture of what I sent her:
What? You didn't think I would post the actual charms in here?! Hehe... no, you'll have to wait until the 27th of next month (possibly). Yes, a *whole* month! But I believe it will be worth it... more on the story later.
I have pictures from previous packages too!
These are from Lisa's de-stash from last month (I managed to take pictures - yay!). I have never owned lucite before - but I am in proper love :) These will become the Holiday Blog Hop for December 1st - still a while to go (knowing me I will make something the week before!)
BTW - if you've been following Lisa' blog before (Pine Ridge Treasures) , make sure to visit her 'new home': http://gratefulartist.blogspot.ca/. Lisa will from now on write her artistic musing there.
These are the crystals from the same de-stash. Gorgeous, aren't they? Now that I got my sterling chain they will become delicate pieces - sometimes next week, before Thanksgiving (the Canadian one).
Also from de-stash - what do you think about my gorgeous ceramic pieces from Yvonne?! They are the cutest little things I've ever seen! And came just in time for being used on a special project (more on this later, much later)
Shelley (from Tori Sophia) send me a little surprise: on the night of destash she has been way faster for one of Lisa's packages. Which contained this gorgeous butterfly (among other beauties). Shelley graciously offered to send me the butterfly - and I promptly forgot about it until I got this in the mail! It's so delicate and beautiful!! Thanks, Shelley, you're awesome!
Post-de-stash, Heather (from Humblebeads) made some autumn components - and I grabbed this one quickly. My picture doesn't show the proper colouring - it is amazingly rich and it's waiting patiently for me to go through my box of 'To Do next', I need to focus on a few other pieces before I get to it! It'll be gorgeous, I just know it :)
Last, but definitely not least, the surprise 'prize' I got from the CBC Admin day - Lisa had an ad-hoc quick 'challenge' and I was, for once, at the right time and place (on our facebook group)... having just written the blog post the day before I also knew the names of all our admins too! And Lisa recalled my love for blue - now I am the proud owner of new lucite flower petals and little leaves and what not!
Ain't I the luckiest girl ever?! I still have to take pictures of Tanya's packages... you have to see *that* one!
Hope you have enjoyed my new treasures, I sure do - and I hope to make all of them justice in making them into beautiful pieces!
