......SOMETHING NEW AND EXCITING!!
This deserves a post of it's own, so here it is!
My friend Marie Alton of SREDeluxe fame (AND an oft-published designer) has just opened her new internet store and already has some pretty cool beaded designs available (along with some very exciting freebies that will be going along with purchases). My 'claim-to-fame' with these is that I've been her personal shopper and have found her some of the beads she's been using in her designs.
Word has it that she may just be a featured artist in the all-Canadian magazine called A Needle Pulling Thread too. I'll let you know if and when it happens!
In the meantime, please check her out at http://sredeluxe2u.blogspot.com and check back regularly as she adds new designs. I know for a fact (having seen a lot of them) that there's some stunning things on the way!!
Marie also blogs her work at http://sredeluxe.blogspot.com.
