My Photo
I am a crazy busy Mom of four beautiful and very active girls. They keep me on my toes! I work from home as the office manager (read: I do everything) for our small transportation company. So when I'm not at a sports event, taxiing kids, cooking dinner while running quotes at the same time, I like to spend my very little free time destressing at my beading table usually into the wee hours of the night.

Bead Star - I made it in!

Happy to share with everyone that two of my pieces made Bead Star 2011!

My crystals entry "Squared" took 3rd place


Squared







My hearts entry "Forever Carved in my Heart" landed an honorable mention!


Forever Carved in my Heart


I was a bit disturbed that it was photographed backwards for the magazine, the wood showing on the opposite side, but I guess it could really be worn either way- it's birch wood so beautiful on either side.

I haven't decided if I'll participate this year by entering anything, in fact I haven't even read the new rules and changes for this year, but if memory serves me correctly entries start being accepted this month!

To celebrate I'm sharing the love with all of you! I'm giving away one copy of Bead Star 2011 PLUS I'll be giving away one of my etched components! The component will be randomly picked and it may or may not be one I have listed in my shop.

I just etched a large batch of copper, including many yet to be seen pieces!

So here's the fun yada yada-

Leave a comment here for one entry
Share on your blog, Facebook or Twitter for additional entries. Be sure to leave an additional comment for each "share" so they are all counted towards your total entries.

I will pick two winners, one for the magazine and one for the component in one week!

Congratulations on getting not one, but two pieces published! I love that they are so different from each other--one very glamorous, and the other very earthy.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Congrats on having two pieces selected. Like the wooden heart necklace and am curious to know what the right side of the necklace looks like.
