Fun and Busy day in the Studio Today! And a Blogaversary Giveaway Question.....

I spent the better part of my day in the Studio because little Helen (92) decided it wasn't a good day to "Do Lunch." And,, after reading Debra Oliver's post over at Common Ground mentioning HER "Blogaversary," I looked at MY stats, and low and behold, my 3 years is the 19th of this month!.....So a Giveaway of some magnitude is in order,,,,,,and I have some questions for you. But, first a "sneak" of what I worked on today..

So? I finished a couple of Swaps I've been working on for an Event Heather at Speckled Egg ( is putting on......I'll share the event link and the goodies later...... (But this is a bit ironic too, because I think Heather was one of the FIRST people I met in "Blogland.")

Here are a couple of "Teases.

Vintage Cabachons, pearls,shells and little old flowers.....

Music stars and blinged out Ballerinas........

More stars and flowers.......

I'm planning a BIG giveaway for my 3 year Blogaversary! Wow, time flies!

So? Other than a bunch of FREE goodies, if there is one thing I make/made, what would you like to see included in the works? A "themed box," a crown of some sorts, ribbon flower necklace? a "magic wand," wreath? Again, I'll decide VERY soon and put a box together, but I'd love your input!

Hope your week is going well, it's still raining here like crazy. I guess, that's good in a way, because you don't have to decide whether you're going to work inside or out!

Hugs, Love and a "Glittery" Bus!
(Lord knows, I'm covered in it today!)


  1. I love your Garden Crowns!! I think you should do one of those!

    I haven't had much time for Blog visiting. It's turning out to be a crazy busy summer.

  8. Goodness all your creations are simply divine! I would love anything you created!

    Congratulations on 3 years!!!

    1. I haven't done a Swap for several years,the Moderator is a BIG factor. I did a couple and worked HARD on my contributions......and was hurt/ disappointed that my "Swappers" kind of slacked! I have KNOW Heather for a long time and KNEW she would do a great event.Take Note!
