Random Acts of Bead Giving


I went to the post office on Friday morning, happy that it was finally the end of the week. I was expecting probably some junk mail, and most likely some bills wanting to be paid.

I got excited when I peeked inside the box and I could see a package. Packages are always fun, especially surprise packages.

I had to go to work at the office then and couldn't pry open the package right away. What a hard thing to do, waiting all day for the chance to open that envelope. And inside ... an organza bag in a pretty color with something jingling inside.



The package is from Sue Kennedy at SueBeads. She sent me a whole slew of handmade lampwork beads. I had marked some as favorites in her Etsy shop and she sent me some of them. Oh, my. My, my, my. They are so beautiful. I want to drop everything and make something with them right now!



I can see earrings, and bracelets and a really special necklace. I can't wait! I just love the light blue ones especially. And the matte ones. And the shiny ones...


I'm a lucky one, aren't I?


Thanks so much, Sue! Your generosity is unbelievable! Be sure to check out her website and Etsy shop, she's got some fabulous things. Take my word for it!
