Thanks to Emma, Laura & Fredbean

How lucky can a girl get?!  I haven't spent a lot of time blogging recently, but I did stop by Ms. Emma's Fredbean's Nook blog and entered her giveaway.  She had some extra stash hanging around and decided to share.  Well, I wasn't paying enough attention because this was a HUGE stash...I am overwhelmed and excited because her lovely daughter, Laura, drew my name from the bunch!

We're talking copper wire GALORE!  I have had it spread all over my living room and kitchen since it arrived.  I happened to also just get the new Wire Style 2 book that features the work of a few good friends and am totally motivated to coil and wrap and then coil some more.  

There were also a ton of wonderful greens...tubes and tubes of seedbeads and a bunch of lovely Czech glass.  Oh, and some olive leather that I unraveled right away.

As soon as I opened this big box of goodness I ran back to the bead room and strung up a memory wire bracelet with a soup of those wonderful green seed beads.

The little focal group includes some enameled metal that Emma sent plus lampworked glass from HMB Studios--my favorite disk source--and a really cool boro bead from Brendan Blake.

Thanks, again, Emma & Laura!  I will definitely be paying this forward.  :)
