Who ....me??

A wee while back I was approached by a lovely lady named Linda Lawrence, saying that she would like to spolight me as a Feature Artist on her Blog. WoW!
I was blown away - yes you guessed it my first thought was 'are you sure you have got the right person?'.

Linda aka
Bella Bead Jewelry had contacted me via LEST, (LampworkEtc Etsy Street Team) a forum where we are both members. I have to admit to feeling a little apprehensive - as I am still such a comparative newbie to all of this & do tend to see my work with a rather critical eye, I also wondered what on earth I could offer that would be in the slightest bit interesting to anyone who should read her blog.

I looked at Linda's LEST Profile, her blog &
Etsy Store. I was blown away by the beautiful disks, fun flowers, & wonderful clean crisp designs she makes - in a multitude of bright colours....everything I set out wanting to do, but for some reason just can't quite get there.
It's funny when you think that one of the reasons Linda contacted me was that we had the same likes & interests in a lot of things!

Of course Linda made it easy for me, there was no pressure or rush & she provided me with a list of 7 questions to answer - & I answered them. She chose one of my beads to show along with what she had posted & also provided links to my Etsy store.

I was, & still am, incredibly flattered... not to mention still somewhat incredulous that someone noticed me out of all the incredible talent in the lampworking community.

Thank you Linda :o)

Hundertwasser - the bead Linda chose to use in her blog.
