Begging? Moi?

Did I tell you I am helping to arrange the GBUK lampwork and jewellery competition this year?
So I am out with my begging bowl, asking various companies to sponsor/donate a prize. I have been pleasantly surprised by the generosity of the people I have approached, and I am well on my way to getting together really good prize packages for the successful winners.
I really hope that there is interest from beaders to take part in the jewellery section of this competition, as its been my idea to include this category.

Go to and click on the link to the competition page.

Had a couple of hours tidying up my work space, wiping down surfaces and organsing the glass a little. Throught I 'd show you how tidy it looks now. LOL.

Keeping the resolution

Members of the bead group admiring my beads, prior to choosing one for themselves.

My worm bead (see earlier post) was snapped up. Just proves the old adage "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

Are resolutions good for you?

Well one resolution which may be good for you (and me), is the fact that I want to post a picture at least once a week.

A lovley picture of Carolyn, a member of the bead group enjoying her beading day.
