Grow Your Blog Party!

Well the big day has finally arrived and I am looking forward to meeting some new bloggers and expanding my horizons a bit! I just found our blog hop sponsor, Vicki over at 2 Bags Full.  She does wonderful things with yarn and loves to travel and blog about it.

 
For those of you interested, I have been operating this little blog for over a year now. As the banner states, I love to talk about arts, crafts and jewelry... the things I like to do, and what others are up to too! And like many, have been expressing myself artistically since an early age. My interests really began in drawing and painting but over the years, have gravitated more toward jewelry making -metal and bead work to be more specific. I have also tried my hand at lots of other artsy crafty mediums and have a healthy respect for those that put serious time into it. I live in the Southwestern United States and gather great inspiration from landscape and wildlife. Hope you enjoy my blog and plan to follow along ;)
 
And now for the BIG surprise! Hey hey its a give away, and ANYONE MAY ENTER!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Isn't that easy? Just be sure that I can find your email address in case you happen to be the lucky winner of this 24 inch red peyote stitch necklace (made by me of course!):
 
 
 
 
Get your entry in by January 31st! The winner will be announced on February 1st!!!!!

  1. How can I possibly resist leaving a comment, Lisa? What a pretty necklace... and a lovely concept at 2 bags full! I'll check back there again later (it's barely past midnight here in Eastern Canada); I'm certain they're be plenty of excitement amongst all the participants!

  2. Good morning Lisa, I enjoyed reading about you and what you enjoy creating. I take my inspiration from nature too-but in all things fiber. I am retired now and live in the woods in Missouri-we love it here. My blog is about all my doings, recipes, and all my projects. Love your beautiful necklace Kathy

  12. Hi Lisa,
    You made that? That's a beautiful necklace. I'm dropping by from GYB. I love to make things too, but I'm not that great a jewelry making. Always thought I'd love to take a silver smithing course. Perhaps 2013 will be the year to do it. :)

I look forward to browsing around your blog and getting to know you better... as a fellow jewelry maker I can't let your blog slip away into the mists! :D I will be back for a proper visit once the Grow Your Blog party is over... until then, it is nice to meet someone that shares a bead addiction! :D
    Hugs,

  25. It is great to meet you through Vicki's GYB party. I loved looking through your blog and particularly liked the hope bracelet and the bling your kitty was wearing. I have a bag of Sea Glass and Sea Beans that I gathered in the Exumas. Of course, I wouldn't know what to do with them.

  39. Hi Lisa ... I'm finally getting around to visiting everyone! I lvoe beading, but I've not done a whole lot with needle and thread. I did take a lesson and bought some books, just wish I had more time. I have some ideas swirling in my head to make beaded braids to sew on clothing.

    Anyhow, great to meet you! Looking forward to seeing more!!
