Toot, Toot, Toot!!!! (blowing my own horn!)

I just came second in the Bead and Button Bead Dreams 2009 competition!!!! Yeah!!!!

You may remember that I entered this competition in the spring along with the Fire Mountain Gems one that I am currently making pieces for.

The winning piece for Bead Dreams was my "remember the little things" bracelet. This is the bracelet that reminds you to take time to:

Stop a little; Entertain a little; Indulge a little; Celebrate a little; Care a little; Work a little; Pamper a little; Love a little; and Play a little.

Each of the nine squares on the bracelets depicts a little bird doing the "little thing". The reverse of the square shows the word of his action.

It feels great to get this recognition. And to go with all this fame is also a cash prize! Guess I'll be buying some more metal clay!!!

So time to do square number 4 now "celebrate a little".
