I had a sinking the feeling the other day - that I had missed the 1 year anniversary of my first post.  And I had!  My first post was May 3rd, 2010.  You can check out the awesomeness here.  My very first commentor?  Miss Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio.  It was incredibly thrilling to get that first comment!  I still obsessively check my e-mail and am so excited every time a connection is made.  Why?  Because jewelry making and blogging are the complete opposite of what I do at work.  I mean COMPLETELY.  I work with all boys.  I can't wear any jewelry except tiny stud earrings and my wedding rings.  On most days I wear a uniform that is gray-beige.  Don't get me wrong, it's a great and rewarding profession, but my SOUL has found a place to be nurtured (not to make too much princess-like drama out of a hobby :-)).  I can't thank you all enough for your welcome and your encouragement.

So....let's have a little giveaway shall we?  I have a tin of beady goodness unclaimed by it's Pay It Forward recipient.  So how 'bout I pay it forward to you?  Just leave a comment and we'll do a drawing on May 23rd, 'cause everyone needs something fun on a Monday.

  10. It did make me wince inwardly imagining day to day attire that restricted jewelry. In the ceramic studio my hands and arms are bare naturally, but I always wear a necklace and earrings...

    Happy Anniversary! I like your blog. ;-)
    I like winning too, just sayin'
