Time, as always, runs far quicker than I can sometimes keep up.  It's been a great week (hello?  Monday holiday?) but absolutely PACKED to the limits.  But there is much that can be accomplished in your PJs on Saturday morning when the rest of the house sleeps in.

Back to today's party...imagine my happiness when I found out a few weeks ago that my partner in this swap was none other than the goddess of swaps, Lori Anderson.  She sent me the most beautiful selection of goodies:

I LOVED the delicious lampwork beads she sent, so those became the focal for these two pieces:
