Thank You Susan

Ooh, I'm so happy! Today in my mailbox, the package containing my beaded lanyard from Susan finally arrived. And it's so beautiful!
When Susan asked what colors I would like I told her blue and purple, or anything she had in her bead box. She wrote back and told me she had lots of blue and purple beads (lucky me!) It matches really well with my snowy owl t-shirt, don't you think?

Here are some close-up details of some of the special beads Susan used.

I love these little cobalt blue beads with birds in them. Susan said she did a "happy dance" at the bead store when she found these and I can understand why.

How about this cute little bead? You wouldn't find something special like that on a "made in China" beaded lanyard!

But wait.....there's more! Included in the package was this neat little zipper pull. And look at the special bead she added to this one too.
I have a black fleece vest that I wear at work (because I'm usually cold). I was just looking at the zipper today and thinking to myself that I should make a colorful zipper pull to add to this vest. How DID Susan know I needed one of these also?

Thank you Susan, from the bottom of my heart! I absolutely love them and will wear your beautiful creations proudly.

You are most welcome, Ruth.
We all really need to start a trading thing. It's so much fun, and so neat to get something handmade.

I didn't know Susan had this talent in addition to all the other neat things she does.

Beautiful. You're going to get more compliments.

Thanks everyone. I am a jewelry FREAK and this beautiful beaded lanyard certainly satisfied my craving for another piece of jewelry, plus it's functional and, therefore the addition of more jewelry is justified!
