Look What I WON!

These are the goodies I won from Kristi Bowman Designs over on Dreamsome Designs Blog (plus a couple of added things I just HAD to purchase!)  Are they just the coolest ever, or what?! 

I'm sure you can imagine how excited and lucky I felt when I received all these gorgeous hand crafted components this week - I mean, really!!?!! My mind is swirling with all the potential. 

Here's a little secret - these are the exact pieces I would make,...if only I could. Or should I say, if I dared.  I have PMC, I just don't work with it very often because I think I'm not that good at it, even though I had a wonderful teacher! (Kathy Hunter, please take a bow!)

Kristi's "Snake Charms" are my favorite - look at them - they're fabulous!!  But since I have absolutely no neck what so ever, and I do want earrings, I will save those for something else and use these ever amazing squares and make them into some cool earrings for myself.  They'll probably become my 'everyday' earrings - I tend to wear the same thing each day while I work and these would be perfect and very cool looking, don't you think?!

Anyhoo - I'm excited about all these pieces and I was dreaming of things to do w/them. I kinda think it's a bit "cheesy" to make a piece of jewelry with something you've won and then sell it on your online store (just my own opinion - to each his/her own!)  so I decided I will keep the squares for myself and make gifts with the rest of these wonderful treasures!!  I might just end up having to keep something else too - we'll see! :) What's your opinion on selling your 'winnings' - is it cool or not, or does it depend on the situation? Give me some insight here folks.

So, I'm off to make a cool pair of earrings w/these amazing squares - got a date tonight w/the hubby!

I wish you all a very Safe, Fun and Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Enjoy your last 'true summer weekend' and create it beautifully!!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Lovely Gifts of Labor!!


  1. What a wonderful post, thank you so much for sharing. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you create with your new goodies!!! I'm so happy you love them!

  2. Wow, congratulations -- what a great haul! Now... what will you make first?!

  3. I have no idea what I'm making first.

    Although I do know I'm putting some little chunks of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise with some of the pieces because they would be perfect together!!

    Very organic and "Arizona-ish" :)

  4. Oh, aahh, don't you just love Kristi's stuff?! Thrilled for you, and can't wait to see what you make. I agree on the winnings question, but I just my opinion. And cause I'm greedy and like to keep the gorgeous stuff for me! :)

  5. they are very pretty. Have fun with the hubby and have a safe and Happy Labor weekend too.

  6. You are such a lucky duck! I love Kristi's components! Enjoy!

  7. wow a nice the colours, can't wait to see what is created :)

  8. Oh how I would love to be on the receiving end of this win. I would keep every piece for myself.
