Meeting the Mailman at My Door!

The other day the mailman had a package for me. It was my bead mix for the next Lisa Lodge Challenge, October 13th. She is calling it My Bead Table Blog Hop and I believe she still has one entry spot left. Check the details through this link.

The next day he had my gift package for being randomly picked on the live monthly giveaway on the Facebook Forum: Creative Bead Chat hosted by Marla James. My gifts were from Heidi Kingman of My Bead Therapy. She is an awesome metal worker, and I am going to have fun with my goodies!

He had another two packages in his hands today, and one was on the small size, which got me very excited. Thought my Strength bead from BOC had arrived, but no. Instead it was this yummy mix from Tanya at Fusion Muse, with my free bead mix.
Why free? Well beside her being a sweetheart, she offers these with a challenge to blog about them, when you receive them, while making something with them and then when the creation is finished. So, more to come on these. Pretty cool, right!

The second were supplies I am gathering together for the polymer class I am teaching in September. Super psyched for this one, and hoping I have a good response.

As if that isn't enough, I also won the Christmas In July Giveaway from Sarah Goode of Pookledo, and waiting for Amethyst Coffins (Well, that's what Sarah called them, but to me they are beautiful faceted gemstone pendants) and a Sage colored pearls on white leather bracelet! It certainly has been a fantastic Christmas in July, and to all those perfectionists out there, yes, I know it is August already, but whose counting!


  1. Those are the kind of mailbox days that I really love! Lots of beady goodness!

  2. Jen did yours come as well or not yet? LOL I am gald they are there and I am looking forward to seeing what evolves.Love and Hugs

  3. I have to admit that when I made the amethyst stitch makers I kept a set for myself. The markings are so pretty!

    Hope they arrive with you soon. :)

  4. Can't wait to see what you make with all your goodies, Marlene! Have lots of fun! :)
