It's A Giveaway!

Hello to each and everyone of you! I hope each of you enjoyed a most beautiful weekend! Mine was restful and quite nice. Well my friends the secret is out. I have been busy working in the studio to open two new shops in time for the holidays. Oh my I tell you I have been one busy little bee these past weeks but I made it.:o)

I have been planning this little giveaway for quite sometime now, but was waiting on that special something that said you and these little pearls are it. Each of you are a rare and precious pearl. I cannot begin to tell you just what each of my blogging friends mean to me. You are indeed special. You have helped see me through some rough times and rejoiced with me in the good times and for that I thank you.

I love to share in the way of giveaways but only wish that I could give to each and everyone of you. But in this case I am sharing two pair of pretty pearl earrings. There will be two names drawn. The first name drawn will receive the pair of earrings with the pretty green and lavender Czech fire polished beads and the other name drawn will receive the earrings with the pretty topaz beads.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, it is as simple as that.:o) The giveaway will remain open till Sunday November 1, 11 p.m. PST. The winners will be announced Monday, November 2nd.

Let me tell you a little something about the earrings. They are fully handmade by me. Measure about 1 1/4" from the bottom of their antiqued brass lever back ear wires with 8mm glass pearls and sweet little 6mm Czech fire polished glass beads, beautiful! Even if you do not wear jewelry they would make a lovely gift for someone special.

I am still in the process of filling the shops but I am so anxious for you to take a look!:o) Cri Designs Etsy Shop, and a fairly new but wonderful market place Cri Designs 1000 Markets. For you artist and crafters....1000 Markets is a wonderful marketplace for your handcrafted work. I am enjoying being there:o)

I will be placing links to both shops on my side bar and placing new items in Tea Time and Roses The Shoppe as well!:o) Thank you so much my friends. Lots of bead play coming your way!:o) Enjoy a lovely week my friends.

Good Things....

Hello everyone! Hope your week was a beautiful one.:o) It has been quite busy around our house as of late. I know it has been a few days since I last visited all of you, and can hardly wait to see just what you are up to!

I wanted so to be ready to share just what I have been working on with you this post, but I am afraid I need a few more days.:o) Also a few of you have ask just how my writing was going. It is going quite well I must say. Sharing writing time with all my other projects seems to slow things a little, but I am pleased with my progress. My writing occurs as moments of inspiration which quite often occur in the middle of the night resulting in my quickly jumping out of bed to journal my thoughts.:o) Now there has been times when I refuse to get out of bed and tried to convince myself I would surely remember in the morning. But when morning comes I only recall it in bits and pieces, never do I remember it fully. So I now jump up click on my little light and write.:o) One day soon that little book I have so wanted will come to complete and full fruition.:o)

Oh the beautiful shades of autumn. I had to share these beautiful autumn leaves with you. I find myself several times a day going to the window just to admire the beauty of this old tree and its magnificent display of sheer beauty. Another of those simple but good things.:o) Well my friends another busy day for me today so I guess I better get going. You and your family enjoy a beautiful weekend. By the way, I hope each of you know just how much I appreciate you. My blogging buddies are the very best!:o)

In Search Of Little Elves.....

Hello to each of you! Boy, it has been a busy time in the studio! It is times like these I wish I had a dozen little elves to help me out.:o) I have to admit I am having a wonderful time in my little space, my happy place and a busy little place I must say. I had to take a moment to wish each and everyone of you a beautiful weekend and a fabulous up coming week.
