Fancy Pants' Surprise



With apologies to Fancy Pants for taking so long, I've finally finished the "surprise" for correctly guessing that I took the bracelet photo on top of the stove. Here it is - your own set of friendly skull earrings! FP, please email me your mailing address. The blog email is strandsofbeads@yahoo.com. Thanks to everyone for playing my little side game!

So I finished all of the little skulls I made a couple days ago. I thought it would be more efficient to do them all at once that way, but by the second hour of polishing all of them, I was ready to keel over from sheer boredom. I must re-think my strategy there, the next time, or at least put on a video of something...

A big "Thank You" for all of the new entries to my Little Something Wicked Giveaway. As I mentioned in the comments, I'm not going to keep posting my own comments there, in case I need to use the random number generator, but it's been fascinating learning a little bit about the interests of other beaders and knitters (and people just interested in these topics). Once again, The Short One will be (theoretically) picking a name out of hat Wednesday evening, before he toddles off to bed. I will post the winner once he's safely tucked in. If you have not yet entered and would like to, please go here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Why, thank you. And keep your pants on (take that any way you like - English or American)! Remember, the drawing is still on Wednesday! :)

Well, I gotta say they sure would be a perfect match with the bracelet. Omg- what to do if my name gets drawn for the bracelet? I must also say I saw the cutest Halloween charms a couple weeks back when I was getting charms for my "hope" bracelet. I was SO tempted, ya know what I mean???

Personally, I hope that whomever wins the bracelet will do a happy Snoopy dance (I'm sure that dates me). I'm not a big holiday bead person - except for Halloween. It's such an over-the-top holiday - I love Halloween themed beads...
