So Sorry!!! Still alive!

Blogger's being a right bitch to me. I haven't been able to post ANYTHING for DAYS!!! I've been to your blogs, the pages won't even load up, and in the rare event that they DO, I can't COMMENT!!! WTF!!!

So, everyone's fine, no piccies to share, well, I have some, but I can't upload them (Yup... good 'ole Blogger....)

Hope to see you all soon!

P.S.: I received a wonderful gift from my newfound blog buddy, Jodie Marshall. She sent me some of her absolutely gorgeous handmade lampwork beads, (try as I might, I can't upload my own pics right now, but you can see them on Jodie's blog.) They are fabulous, delicious, and unexpected. I never thought that when I admired them on Jodie's blog, that she would readilly offer them to me. And to top it all off, she even slipped a beautiful, delicate little silver-dotted blue heart in there with them! (LoL! Jodie, I hope you won't mind that I used your own piccies! LoL!)

When I first saw the beads, I had many, MANY ideas on how I could frame them with my own beadwork. But now, the more I look at them, the more I just want to let them stand by themselves. This morning, I'm wearing one of the larger beads on a thin silver snake chain, and I'm going to make earrings with the other two. These beads won't be needing any additional embellishements, they're perfect as is! Wow! My very first Jodie Marshall Beads!


... They won't be my last... ;) Prepare yourself, Miz Marshall, as this French Girl in Niagara will be hording MANY of your beads! I can't thank you enough for your gracious generosity. It's a beautiful gift that I will NEVER forget!


Thank you Jodie.

It was more than sweet on your part Jodie. My superintendent complimented me on my necklace this morning. She asked me "How did you get a marble on there?", LoL? I went into a huge explanation on how lampwork beads are made.

Hey, have you ever thought of making marbles? There are some specialty marble collectors out there. Mmmmmmmmmm, marbles... Oh don't get me started! ;)

Hey, first again Katy, Go you! LoL! Yes, it IS wonderful to meet all these wonderful people on blogger. I'd say it's one of the best things I ever did, to start bloggin.

Thanks Cammie! ;)

Goodness! Those are GORGEOUS!!! I can't wait to see what you'll do with them. Hmm... may have to see about getting some for myself. ;-)

Hello and welcome back Cinderelly (*giggles* too cute!) Oh, Yeah, I love the updates (eyes rolling reeeeeeeeealy far up in my head!!! LoL!) Oh, I love your blog too. I couldn't get over that tribal skirt, how YUMMY is THAT!!!?!
I've always wanted to learn how to sew. I'm one of those 'doers', like you, I think, and I swear, it's like I want to do everything. Does the madness ever stop? LoL!

Hello Tea. Oh you should see them in person: The 'wave' beads are about an inch wide, and 1/4 inch thick. And the ends are so neat. I mean, no jagged edges, no chips. Absolutely gorgeous.

Um, I don't think you should get any Tea, yeah, that's it, um, I don't think Jodie has enough for you'n me, see? I think she's only got enough for Me!

LMBO!!! ;p

Oh, alright, I'm just kidding... well... sorta.
If blogger straightened out I would like to see a picture of the beads. Hope things run more smoothly for you!!

Those beads are pretty. I LOVE those hearts - so fun!
jin said…
GASP!

Those hearts come in pink & green....

That's it.
As soon as I get my finances in order (Please Goddesss THIS YEAR!) I'm *ordering* a jewels custom piece with one of those hearts!!!
If Goddess wishes me to win the lotto I'll even pick it up in person!
;-)
Jewels said…
Oooh, in person??? I'd LOVE that! Heee! Hee! Hee! Please Goddess, either one of us COULD use some financial windfall... Pretty please?

With a Jinnie cake on top?
