bad news

well, my laptop has died and gone to the big dell graveyard in the sky!!! thus the reason for no blogging, i have another computer in my studio but i never want to go down there, sad excuse but now i will have to... not sure when we will be getting a new one as Kaj, our black & white great dane has some major teeth issues and that needs to get done before the laptop....
so in the meantime, the winners of my little jewelry giveaway are as follows:
janie and kelly kilmer......

thanks for all the tips....
i guess it is a good thing the laptop died, now it forces
me to go into the
DARK studio and work!!

later i found out she thought i might make nina's famous coccon beads with it and
that idea never crossed my mind..
anyway, here are julie's items she sent me.. here is what i made for her......
here are my items that i sent her and.....and here is what she sent me!!!
