I know today's post is not supposed to be about jewelry but you'll forgive me. If I don't post it now I will forget and we can't have that!
Unless you've just arrived on my blog you know I am part of a beautiful artisan community - Artisan Whimsy. Lots of things happen there and the most fun of them: challenges. There is always an active challenge and one can hardly resist!
