Bracelet Giveaway and a New Inspirational Book

First, I want to tell you about a giveaway I'm having on my organizing blog. The prize is one of these bracelets. To get the details and enter click HERE!

Secondly, I wanted to show you this wonderful book I found at Hobby Lobby. I am a super new newby to paper crafting and really enjoyed all of the eye candy and ideas in this book along with how-tos.

I have read it cover to cover! Lisa shares one project in which she uses cameos. It just so happened that I decided to go to a shop I hadn't been to for quite some time and found the bracelet shown below for $1.00 - yes, one hundred pennies! I snatched it up along with some other bracelets I'll share on a later post. I've already cut this one apart and can't wait to do something with the cameos.

We had a little frost last night and rain is expected later today and for the next two days, so I may have a little 'in my studio' time to be creative. This time of year I am so anxious to get outside and ride my bicycle or just plain enjoy the weather that it is difficult for me to stay inside and craft. Soon the heat and humidity will be here and I will be happy to stay in the air conditioned studio.

We had snow last night! Wish it was only frost, but it was 5" of white fluffy stuff!
The cameos are a deal at 1.00 - lucky you. I haven't heard of that book but it looks like it would be a good read. Have fun with it!

Connie I love the cameo bracelet. I think I was posting a comment in the wrong post! But I still love everything you do create! Gorgeous! Love to you! Anne

I love my gold sparkly bracelet! It is pretty and will look good with my navy ruffle pant suit I have for Mother's Day! Woot Hoot! Love you Connie. Keep me in the loop about making anything with cameos. I am a lover of them and certainly lost a beautiful earring my aunt had given me years ago! I am heart sick over it. But I order a pair of posts from one of my favorite sites so I hope they will at least make me smile! The sentimental value is what I can never replace. So I will keep the other one and perhaps find a use for it. Any suggestions? Let me know! Again thank you for including me in your giveaway and thanks for allowing me to win this gorgeous bracelet. I need to post about it.
