Don't Miss the Deadline for my GiveAway!!

Just a reminder that the deadline for my first giveaway 
is tomorrow Sat June 5th at Midnite!! 
Simply enter a comment regarding your ways to organize your suppliers and/or supplies.  I was looking for ways to keep track of who I bought a particular product from.  I put my beads away nicely but where did I buy them? That is another story.  
I will put your name in the hat and randomly choose someone on Sunday morning.  
So be sure to add your comments to my May 22nd post.  
"Bo Jangles"!! 
You can see the giveaway prize there also. 
Okay, I have been drilling a lot of holes in my beads getting them ready to sell on Etsy.  
I decided to try a technique where you mix the crumbs from baked polymer clay into fresh clay to make faux stone.  

I also added my own idea which was embossing powders in translucent clay to look a little like quartz and mica. I also added embossing powders to blue/green to look like turquoise. 
I am very happy with the result.  
I call this "Pebbles by the Water".  Next time I will try to make Clay water in a different shade.

Sharing the Joy!!

I just had to share my delight at checking my email after two days of not feeling well and finding that:
 my Bead soup as one of her six favorites in the Bead Soup Flickr Pool. 
What a wonderful surprise! 

You see my Alamo inspired beads 2nd down on the left?  I am honored. 
 Whenever a really fine inspiration touches my heart and I let it happen it seems to take on a life of it's own.
