Lucky Charms in the Desperate Neighborhood
The Desperate Editor has a bone to pick with the Desperate Neighbors after last week. So she's gone to the back window of Jennifer Jangles where she knows she'll find empty Margarita glasses. Seems Jennifer is burning the midnight oil this time to create her annual Ten Weeks of Holiday Projects. To persuade her customers to ignore her tippling, she's offering new newsletter sign ups a chance to win her Lucky Charms bracelet.
Not satisfied that she's dug up enough dirt and gossip in the Desperate Neighborhood, The Desperate Editor turns her attention to the rest of the Bead Blogging World to see what's going on out there.....
