What To Do When You Can't Go To Beadfest...

Pin It This past weekend was the weekend that many of my friends went to Beadfest in Philadelphia. Sadly, I wasn't among them. :( I found myself moping around, looking at photos on facebook of all the smiling faces that were there having a blast....but not I! :(

I went to check out my favorite facebook groups to see what people were up to, Creative Bead Chat being one of them. Lo & behold, one of the admins was home as well & was hosting a full day's giveaways donated by group members. I quickly contacted Marla & donated a prize as well. I tell ya, Marla James missed her calling. If this ceramics thing doesn't work out....yeah right! ;-) She really outta become an auctioneer. She started out slow, putting up new giveaways every hour. Then it was every 1/2 hour & before long we were down to new giveaways every 15 minutes. We laughed till we cried. Even though I didn't win anything, it was SO much fun! I had tears rolling down my face reading some of the posts.

A great big thank you to Marla James for making the day so fun for us! She's such a sweetheart and what a talent! She makes beautiful ceramic beads and pendants. I'm fortunate to own 1 of her creations. This lovely pendant with the adorable heart shaped loop. Please check out her links below to see more of her beautiful work.
