It's Here, It's Here, It's Here!

So, a few things before we start:
1) I think that postman was totally exaggerating when he said I gave him "box burn" as I tore the box out of his hands.
Cry baby.
3)Wow, wow, WOW! Kristin sent such amAzIng things!

That's not to say, of course, that it's a surprise. After all, Kristin has such funky, stylish taste. Check out this necklace she's making for the Minnesota Zoo's 2013 Beastly Ball

I think this example of Kristin's work really honors the philosophy behind my own business name: taking something directly from nature and turning it into something even more breathtaking. So, of course, I *love* it! And, of course, there's more. There's this stunner, which was published in Bead Trends, September 2012.

So, while I wasn't surprised, my jaw certainly dropped when I got my package. First of all, even the outside of the box was eye catching!

Thanks for reading!


  1. HAHAHAHAHA you are so sweet.....!!!! Cant wait to see what you cook up!

  2. Fun! Maybe because I got my own package today I feel a particular affinity, a sense of camaraderie, a feeling that we're in this together. And we are. But I love, love, love the excitement and emotion in this post. And, I had to laugh at the box burn. :) Can't wait to see the reveal and hear more.

  3. @Kristin - Thank you, again! This is going to be great. I've got some great ideas already.

    @MaryEllen - I absolutely agree, we ARE in this together! Thank you so much for the lovely comment!

    I love the gentle pressure I feel to make the most fabulous things possible out of this soup. I just don't want to let anyone down by spoiling such amazing beads.
