Past blog hops and challenges

I can't believe it has been almost a month since the last time I posted.  Where does the time go?

      I won a guest pass to The Whole Bead Show in Lynnwood from Kristi Bowman of Kristi Bowman Design for the first weekend in May.  I met Kristi and Linda Landig of Linda Landig Jewelry.  Both very nice ladies.  Linda was there helping Kristi.

Kristi had some of her components and also some of her finished jewelry.  I bought several of her components.

Not sure if you can really see how gorgeous these components of Kristi's are.  I bought a Tree of Life, some small leaves, five petal flowers, and drop or egg shaped components with one hole at the top and three holes at the bottom and a snakeskin texture down the center.

I also visited Judith Billig, a lampwork bead maker, and bought some autumn colored leaves and matching spacers.  I have learned that if I don't buy the autumn colors when I see them, I will be out of luck later.  Now to come up with a design.

I visited several other vendors and bought some other beads which I will have to cover in my next post as I am out of time tonight.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are welcome any time.  Just have to figure out how to reply to them.
