Celebration!! Bead Trends full year of publications!!

I am so excited. This afternoon I went to check my e-mail and discovered that I had two more pieces accepted for Bead Trends! This time for the September issue. This issue was very important to me because it marks a year straight of being published every month! I feel truly blessed and take nothing for granted. I know I would not have this talent without my heavenly father and I thank him every day.

Not the best picture of me, but it's a picture so why not ;) and yes those are my teeth. lol

I also wanted to add that my little girl Emma is trying to follow in my footsteps. She loves to learn everything I do and wants to get involved. Since her report card was so good this term, I rewarded her with her own Etsy shop! She is over the moon and it will be a good learning opportunity for her. So I hope you will check out her little shop and give her some hearts <3
 Emma's Treasures and Trinkets   handmade items from Emma-Jeanne with a tiny bit of help from Mom. Some items will look similar to mine, but that is what she is learning after all. I help with little things like wire wrapping but she chooses all the beads she uses and the design. We are hoping to get her to submit to Bead Trends, she has been asking for about 6 months. We will see what happens :)

I want to thank all of you for your support, inspiration and kind words, they mean the world to me.
**Update** I had tested the shop link and it worked, when I went back it had changed. I just changed it back so hopefully it will work now. So please take the time to see my little girl's shop :)**

Congratulations Marie. I know how hard you have to work to do that. And bravo on your daughter too. My daughter was published in Bead Trends last year, but school has forced her to scale back on her LuLuBelle Collection. Such a great opportunity to learn and share your talents together.
Enjoy the day!
