I am so pleased to say that I have been accepted into the BUILD A LINE CHALLENGE sponsored by Brenda Sue Lansdowne of http://www.bsueboutiques.  There were sixty (60), spots available, and I am happy to say, as of this posting, that all but four (4), have been filled!!  Tomorrow is the deadline for entry, so hop on board if you are a member of the BBCG, and have a blog already.  Just email Brenda at, and let her know your idea in three paragraphs or less.


I have already begun doing some layout work from my sketches, and am happy with what I am seeing so far.  I can’t show you anything until we have our first blog hop on January 23, which will be the first reveal for everyone who is participating.  It’s going to be VERY exciting to see what everyone has chosen, and I am really looking forward to it.  It will be my FIRST EVER blog hop, so a new experience, also.  Which is one of the biggest reasons I chose to participate in this challenge.  I love learning and challenging myself to get the heck out of my comfort zone.  Do something new, learn something new, keep my mind and hands busy… it’s all good, any way you look at it.

I plan to be kept pretty busy with the BALC, (we are a little like the federal government in this group… we make an acronym out of all the different names we have for things in the group!), but “in my free time” or when I just need a break, we are still having our regular monthly challenges, in which I am going to participate.  For January and February, we are going to take a piece of jewelry that has not sold or that we really don’t like, and rework it into an updated piece.  I have my pieces all picked out already.  Here are the “BEFORE” photos:

I will post the “AFTER” photos when I have finished reworking the pieces.  That’s it for now.

Have a great week.  Talk to you soon, and please watch for my post on January 23 when I show you what I am doing for my BUILD A LINE CHALLENGE.


P.S.  I love tulips!  They are my favorite flower!!
