Cassie's Sweet Bead Swap


Cassandra from Cassandras Artful Adventures hosted a bead swap.  It was a lot of fun and we all got some fabulous goodies.  We had three partners to swap with and I got three of the BEST.  Thank-you Cassandra!  You can click on the photos to enlarge them.

Rhonda sent this beautiful box filled with my favorite bead colors purple and pink.  She put in some sweet little flower beads.  I LOVE the box and the beads, thank you Rhonda!



This is what I sent Renee  who loves cherubs, birds ...
From Renee came this box ... I love the flower with the pearl center and look !  She sent me something with a kitteh on it...wonder how she knew? :))..Thank you Renee!
This is what I sent Rhonda, who loves the Eiffel Tower



From Lisa, a sweet Georgia gal, I got this beautiful box with a bird on top. Lisa's was the first box I received and my Sweetie heard me squealing all the way upstairs.  When he came down to check on me I was doing the happy dance!  Lisa  filled the box with wonderful beads and look, look at the purple hearts.  Thank you Lisa !
Lisa loves bling and this is what I sent her.
Cassandra will post links to all the bloggers who participated on the 15th and I hope you will visit her blog (link on my sidebar) so you can see all the wonderful boxes and beads .   This was a great swap and I got three of the most wonderful boxes and beads.   My wish for you:   Good things in your small packages.  (())

Hey Francie! Thank you for the wonderful post. I'm so happy that you loved your box and beads. You actually sent the Eiffel Tower box to me and you should have heard the gasp that came out of me when I opened it. You were so very thoughtful to create that for me and I will treasure it forever. It was a great swap and I will be doing a post about it for the big reveal day. Enjoy your weekend and I hope to chat soon! xoxo Rhonda...

Of course I am always the last to jump on the band wagon but I caught the bead bug (a little bit anyway) and went to my first bead store yesterday. I was very refrained and only spend $20.00. LOL....I am using them as enhancements on some things....not really making some of that gorgeous jewelry I see out in blogland. And your orange post....woohoo! How pretty is that! I am not an orange person and would have been stumped on that party. xoxo

What a wonderful idea to have a bead swap! Being a digital artist I never thought to have a swap for beads but I do have many beads. I hope I can participate in the next one.

love you music, love the Lord
Bless You
