November Blogger of the Month - Storybeader!

This month our special Blogger is Storybeader. I think the nomination of blogger surely fits her. If Deb is not chatting in our Blogger Forum, she is busy blogging away on her website.
Storybeader’s craft is jewelry designing; primarily working with natural stones, and gemstones, which are highlighted by one of the many beautiful pendants her beads showcase. What makes Deb’s necklaces and other pieces unique in design is also her Haiku poems (which she writes herself) which although does not describe the piece it is written for, but gives the reader a sense of the inner artist at work. Haiku is an ancient Japanese art in which the poet/artist tries to inspire mood and emotion through thoughts and imagery; leaving the reader to explore their own experiences and perceptions. Deb describes herself as a “frustrated writer who likes to put words and colors together to make wearable art.”
I have chosen three of my favorite pieces of Storybeader’s jewelry, which truly show her artistic

I've Been Tagged Again!!

From my favorite little Blogging "Witch", I have been passed this blogger's award. Which in turn I must now pass this "Butterly Award" on to 7 of my favorite Etsy bloggers. For those of you who don't know witchy's shop, she makes the most delicious soaps. When I first saw them, I didn't know if I wanted to sit in a bath with one, or eat it, or perhaps both!! Her blog is - where you will find some of her very interesting blogs:
So here goes my dear 7 Blogging friends, 7 little bits of me that will now be blogged around the world:

1. My cellphone ringtone is "Freebird" one of my alltime favorite songs

2. My closest friends come from India, Italy, Iraq, and Phillipines (I do like American's also!)

3. Love Shopping - might as well be broke but loving it!

4. 4'10" size 4 feet (i'm part hobbit) and 36C

5. My kids and I love tatoos - I currently have 5

6. A tattoo on my butt!

7. Love my Etsy friends, as my boy's always say "It's Etsytime!"








Now as you are mumbling under your breath, oh dear God, why did she pick me, because I wanted to share the little butterfly award, and get to know that little extra something about each of you. Oh, and don't forget to add the little blogging butterfly award to your blog, and mention mine blog in yours.
