The 4th Bead Peeps Swap-n-Hop Challenge
|My wonderful partner- Deborah Apodaca|
I love challenges! Since I participated in the 1st Bead Peeps Swap N Hop challenge, I have been totally hooked. They are so much fun. There are so many wonderful facets to participation and one of the best is meeting new friends and getting to know other crafters that share similar interests. This year my partner is the charming Deborah Apodaca from Florida. Not only is she a beader, but she also makes the most amazing dolls, does wire wrapping, pearl knotting, chainmaille, Vikings Knit, Kumihimo, silversmithing, coppersmithing, fused glass and enameling, the list is endless...
I have had her page on my list of favorites since I came to know about her, and now n then I see her beautiful new posts roll across my computer screen, and am awed every time.Didnt know how I could put all that she’s made in a single post.So I looked back through her previous posts and pulled off these gorgeous photos. These are by far my favorites

Since the reveal is still a few days away, I am not going to show what she sent me, and keep it as a surprise, but I think this years goodies, are unique so I think I am going to come up with a good collection. Do drop by on the 7th April to see what I have made from the lovely goodies Deborah has sent me.
Happy beading friends, till we meet again!
