About 2 years ago, on May 3rd, 2010, because my beady BFF Jen of Jen Judd Rocks said YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BLOG, I decided to give it a try.  My first post had no words, only some "eh" pictures, and my very first comment was from Cindy of Sweet Bead Studio.  With two gals like that on my side how could I fail?  Since then I have published 388 posts, a zillion pictures, and gained 187 followers and 133 friends on Facebook.  You all have supported me with 34,915 page views (only 10,000 or so are mine :-)) and 2,305 comments.  In turn I have started following 474 of your blogs (although I haven't been keeping up with my reading too much lately). Somewhat oddly, my I Heart Macro post that revolved around Bob Ross was one of my post popular posts.

Wait, you are saying to your self, it's May 1st, why is she getting all anniversary-ish now?  Because to celebrate I am going to have a giveaway, in conjunction with the One Crayon Color Challenge on May 5th (just go with it). And here is what I am giving away...

This set of 11 colorful beads, handmade by me, and annealed in my digitally controlled kiln...might become yours!  This set expresses exactly where I am right now - all over the place, experimenting, a little off kilter but working on straightening up...or maybe I shouldn't?

Come on back Saturday for the One Crayon Color Challenge on May 5th, leave a comment and I'll make the drawing on the 10th.
