Bohemian Inspired Sweetness!!

I got a really cool email last weekend from Beading Daily.



They told me I had won Lorelei Eurto's Pompidou Necklace that is on the cover of her and Erin Siegel's new book Bohemian Inspired Jewelry, 50 Designs Using Leather, Ribbon and Cords from their Polyvore Challenge they had!






Can you believe it!?!!  I'm so excited! 




Thank you so much Beading Daily, Lorelei and Erin for having the Polyvore Challenge, it was a lot of fun!


My Polyvore design with Lorelei's Necklace






You guys really need to get the girls' book, if you don't already have it.  It's very well done.  The layout is great and the photos are amazing. Plus, the way they have all the materials and tools listed as well as how to care for your ribbons, cords, etc. is a huge bonus!





Here's the link to the Interweave Press Book Store:  Bohemian Inspired Jewelry





And, you've got to hop on over to Beading Daily and see what's going on over there this week - they're always full of fun ideas, tips, great articles and videos you can watch - super site!
(I've got the app on my iPhone!)





Here's the link to Lorelei's blog: 




Here's the link to Erin's:

Oh,...and Polyvore
I'm seriously obsessed,...that's all I'm gonna say. 

I wanted to try and do a little video 'vlog' thing, so here goes.

The video is rather awful (sorry!!) and I'm also sorry for all the movement and for not speaking into the camera and showing my face and all.
If you read Wednesday's post you know I got scratched in the face by my sis's cat (Cosmo kitty) and I've got a bit of an infection on my upper lip - it's pretty ugly and I didn't want to scare you!!  

Anyhoo,....as soon as the necklace arrives in the mail (it's on it's way!) I'll post some pics so you can see it up close! 

Oh,....the suspense and waiting is sooooo hard!!

Thanks again to all involved with this - you're super!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Pompidou!
Cheers,
