|Some of my faves from the generous gift|
I was very lucky to win the special 1000th blog post
over at Crafty Hope's blog.
It had been one of those days
when nothing goes right,
everything that could go wrong did go wrong
and then some.
So finding out I had won Hope's
generous give away
really made my day end
on a much nicer note!
I have to admit that my jaw dropped a little
when the massive parcel of beading goodies
landed on my door mat!
This post has been a while in the making
because I wanted to photograph as much as possible
to share a peek at all the lovelies with you.
Where to start....
Instead of doing a massive write up I am going to just let the photos
speak for themselves!
|Strands of pretty beads|
|Rustic gift tags|
|Cute red glass seashells|
|Bags upon bags of beads!|
|Quirky and industrial pieces with some drilled domino beads|
|A selection of charms and pendants - love the Halloween kitty!|
|Sweet double sided pendant|
|A big bag of buttons|
|I love the red white and blue sailor striped ones|
As you can see there is quite the selection here!
Hope sent this collection from her personal stash
and I think there is something quite interesting about that.
To receive a selection from a personal craft collection
is quite a privilege, it's like getting a little peek into their designer soul!
I am very excited about starting some designs with these goodies.
My, oh my, what a stash!
Thank you SO much to Hope for this fab gift

I can see that I am going to be kept busy
creating from this lovely lot!
