Ask and you shall receive

Recently I have been surfing the blogosphere looking for some new blogs to follow. I have a core group of blog friends but I add and subtract on a regular basis. And as you know, you can go from link to link to link checking out who is reading who, etc. Well, this blog came onto my radar recently. It's a group of 13 (there's a lucky number!) fiber artists that are challenging each other to make pieces based on a theme. From there, I started checking out each gal's individual blog and fell upon this talented lady.


Well, when I saw this necklace, it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. I immediately searched to see if Sandy had an Etsy store cause I was wanting that necklace. As it turned out, she did not so I decided to leave her a comment about how gorgeous it was and how I would have scooped it up if for sale. Of course,this was the day that BLOGGER decided to be contrary and would not allow me to leave a comment no matter how hard I tried. But I was not to be deterred, I sent Sandy an email telling her about the comment problem and told her how much I loved the necklace.

Next day, I got an email from Sandy. She asked if I would like the necklace and that we could do a swap.. DID I WANT THE NECKLACE???? !!!! Heck, yeah I did!!

And so, a swap was done.

The necklace arrived today. It is sooo beautiful and I am totally in love with it. Sandy, thank you, thank you! This is the highlight of my weekl I love, love, love it. Your box went into the mail this morning.

I've been trying all weekend to upload a picture but BLOGGER is not being cooperative at all!  Any one else having problems??

Hopefully, I can get a picture up later in the week of me and my beautiful necklace!!
Hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day weekend.


Woohoo!! I tried uploading my picture from work and that worked!!! Guess I need to check out my computer at home and see what's not working right!
