Hello ABS-ers! It's December.....I'm pretty sure I say this every month, but how on earth did that happen? How did we (almost) reach the end of 2014? I'm really not sure! I feel like I had so many more goals and accomplishments to achieve before the year's out. Well, we've got three weeks I suppose - we can still squeeze some in!
For one reason or another, last month's holiday bead theme got cut short. Sometimes it happens like that, depending on what dates the Mondays fall on. So I thought - it's December, it's chilly, we're heading towards the holidays - be that Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, or even just downtime spent with family and friends (you can't really beat that, can you?) - let's carry on with the holiday beadzzzzzz.
TooAquarius - These wee snowmen are full of character.
Gaialai - Very cute, and full of colour - these dreidels are fab.
Polyclay Day OK, so this one is a necklace - but how sweet are Polyclay Day's handmade snowflake beads? I love their simplicity.
Jettabug Jewelry - I love the particular holiday shades that Jetta has selected. What a gorgeously rich crimson red!
Now for a wee bit of housekeeping. I realised the other day that no winner had been drawn for my last Inside the Studio post. Oh no! And I certainly do NOT want the lucky winner to miss out. So I did my own little draw (with the help of random.org), and the lucky winner of two pairs of my handwoven beads is.......
