Bead swap 2012 - beads into jewelry and a giveaway annoucement

Hello!  The time has come again for Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party which has a reveal date of March 3rd.  Unfortunately, I wasn't one of the lucky 200 that got picked in the lottery this time.  But, the swapping continues anyway!  There is a group of non-participating jewelry makers who arranged an informal swap and I get to be part of that!  

Our packages must be in the mail to our partners by March 1st and our reveal will be the first week of April. 

My partner this time is Linda Younkman and her creation will be revealed on her blog located here (click the hyperlink to be directed to her blog) also the first week of April.  If you go to Linda's Etsy storefront you will see her talent shines through in the jewelry she makes.  I'm very excited to see what Linda does with the package of goodies I am sending her.

As a teaser, here is a pixelated photo of what I am putting in the mail tomorrow.

I will post again when I receive the goodies that are on their way to me from Linda. 

Now, the giveaway announcement! I have decided to do something different with my bead swap this time.  I will have a giveaway of one of the pieces I make with this swap.  All you have to do is comment on the blog revealing the piece(s) and you will be entered into a random drawing using to win the piece.  The entry period will last for one week following the reveal date.  I will mail the piece to the winner so make sure I have your email address to contact you!

Happy beading........
