Big Hearted Surprise

On July 4th I won a lampwork glass heart necklace from Holly's Folly Glass. I like the black and white swirls and the unique necklace (she sells these in her shop as well). She is very talented and on her blog I saw that she created a memorial bead for a friend's pets. (Sharla, I thought of you).

And today, the incredible Edi of Memories for Life scrapbooks and laser engravings featured one of my prints for her Friday Features. My favorite gift to give from her shop are the custom name albums but her laser engravings have really opened up the possibilities of what Edi can create for her customers. And she likes custom orders so be sure to check out her shop. She made something for my dad that is not listed in her shop and it is gorgeous so just ask!!

Rose of Random Creative is wonderful about promoting fellow BBA teammates  and others on her blog. She currently has a Christmas in July sale going on. I purchased this bracelet for the coming holiday (while working on this blog post). I will be working at a preschool and think this will be fun;) Check out her other cute things.

Deb was asking about newsletter for her Storybeader blog and inspired my email list post. She recently traveled to Italy and created these pretty paper beads.

QUESTION: Who has inspired you this week?

I am linking up to Random Creative's Friday Features link party.

Erika, Thanks so much for the feature!! I appreciate it!

My inspiration this week has come from picking up an old color of glass I had forgotten about while making a name tag necklace for me to wear at a Beads of Courage Charity event. I love that old color SO much... all mother-of-pearl looking! I can't wait to get back to the studio and do a full set!

Great post.. love it.

This week I was inspired by the Portland Rose Garden via friends that visited and shared their photos with us. My weekly link-up on Thursday featured rose inspired goods.
