From the monthly archives: October 2012

I was thrilled to see a picture of my strawberries used in a gorgeous bracelet today – the saga of the lost berries began in early August, but finally Monique of A Half-Baked Notion received her parcel of charms and was able to take part in my Summer Fruits challenge/giveaway.


You can take a look at the clever bracelet (and the very apt title) here:


This is a short notice blog post (but that will give you less time to forget about it, right? :D )

On 12th October, a group of nutters who also happen to lampwork very well indeed (from this, you can guess that I am *not* one of them!) will be holding a BEADATHON. It’s in capital letters because you can’t be quiet about a BEADATHON, especially when it benefits the Beads of Courage program.

From approximately 7 pm of Friday the 12th October (that’s 2pm for those on EST) a full 24 hours will be devoted to lampworking, with participants aiming to keep the torch going all the way through. All beads made during the BEADATHON will be donated to  BOC.

If you’d like to donate, here’s a link:
