Fortune and Glory Dr. Jones!

Hot Dog! I've been waiting for so long to start telling everyone my good news. Do you see that? That's my Siren's Song necklace on the cover of Simply Beads for the next issue!!!! (Are there enough exclamation marks in the world for how excited I am? Probably not!)

I'm like a kid at Christmastime waiting to see the magazine in person. Along with my project they featured my Sundry bracelet kit and there is article on Bead Retreats that mentions the Bead Cruise. Yes, this issue is the Heather Powers special edition. (har, har!) The magazine will be in stores on May 6th!

Yep, it's a banner day here at the humblebeads studio! Now back to making more beads for the show this weekend. Next week you'll see a wave of new wafer beads and urchins in my etsy shop. So many beads, so little time...
