The Haberdashery Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Two new things to share with you today!

1.  I received my goodies for the Pine Ridge Treasures Checkerboard Blog Hop today! This is a Blog Hop hosted by Lisa Lodge at A Grateful Artist: gratefulartist.   Tomorrow, I will take pictures of the absolutely gorgeous assortment Lisa has provided.  Lisa's selection is a stunning variety of beads and components in red and black to compliment her checkerboard theme.  Please check back here soon to see what I received!  Oh, the possibilities!  Thank you, Lisa  :)

2.  Earlier this week, I heard a little bit about a new Blog Hop being hosted by Melissa Trudinger at beadrecipes.  I scooted right over to see what all the excitement was about!

Melissa is hosting the Haberdashery Blog Hop (Haby Hop for short):

The Challenge and inspiration: use new or vintage ribbons, buttons, silks, trims, laces and fibers to create lovely jewelry. This was such a unique and creative idea, I had to sign-up. I have so many bits & pieces saved from past crafting or sewing know how it goes, hating to toss-out a single misplaced button or that few extra inches of unused pretty lace.  Never waste anything because it just might come in handy 'one day'. Well, today is the day!  Melissa's Hop provides a perfect opportunity!

In addition, Melissa has been working hard and has provided a ton of inspiration and excellent tutorials to get our ideas flowing.  Thank you, Melissa!

Please come back to my blog and also check-out Melissa's blog on August 2, 2014 to see what everyone designed.  This will be alot of fun.

Happy beading,


  1. Can't wait to see what everyone makes for these hops! They are going to be fun and inspiring!

  2. Glad you love your Checkerboard Hop beads! Melissa's Haberdashery Hop sounds interesting. I will definitely stop by to see everyone's creations.
