I WON!! I WON!!!!

by Kelli Pope


Last weekend I was browsing (drooling) through handmade beads components on ETSY. I was trying SO hard to be good, as I need to be making more of my own beads. But of COURSE, I came across some really cool "shards" by Marsha Neal, and knew I had to have some. Then I saw this "rugged star" and decided I "needed" it, too.. I behaved and stopped there.

To my surprise, I received an e-mail from Marsha on Monday telling me I'd won her weekend giveaway, and could pick out another $50.00, in merchandise!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!

Now THAT'S how Mondays are supposed to be!!!! I was so busy shopping (drooling) on her site, I didn't even notice the giveaway!!! I was SO excited!!! I dove right in and picked out my merchandise. This is the LOVELY package that greeted me today.

Here is her beautiful postcard... (Makes me realize I really need to re-do mine!!)


And along with the post card was this cute little box.


And inside the box were these cute little individually wrapped treasures.....


YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just can't wait to use these!! Thanks again Marsha! You made my week!!!!! These pieces are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I especially love the "rustic" 1/2 moon... it looks like old metal!!

There is just NOTHING like handmade!!! These little pieces of art are going to truly enhance whatever I make.

Congreats!!!! Marsha's flowers are just awesome! You have great taste in your picks you got. I just purchased some great hand dyed silks from her. They are wonderful and come in such beautiful earthy colors with a pop of bright color here and there in a bunch. Love them!

Kelli - I'm so excited that you won the drawing! And didn't even know there was one going on…
Thanks for sharing pics of your winnings on the LMAJ blog too - you're too kind with your words about my pieces. Although I do love the way that half-moon crusty porcelain piece does look and feel like old rusted metal. I think a piece like that would make it's way into a mixed media piece vs an up against your skin piece of jewelry - but that's probably just me ;)

Can't wait to see what you make with these! Let me know (send me pics) and I'll blog about them to continue this chain of blog posts…

Thanks everyone!

I was just noticing some great earings in the summer issue of Stringing magazine that had her beads featured in them. Because of your post I recognized them right away! Lucky lady!!
