Hey you guys!
Did you get over the blog hop from last week yet?
I think I worked the hardest of anyone. Yep, me, JewelryDonna. Why would I say that? Because EEEEEK this wasn't easy for a newbie, I couldn't get my comments on, it was like standing on my head and being twirled at the same time.
We knew this photo would come in handy one day.
ANYWAY: If I didn't post for someone, in case you are reading this and thinking, CHEEZE she has time for this but didn't post on my blog! I NEVER GIVE UP.
I'm just slow. I may have to send you a letter in the mail!
So anyway.....I was at Brenda's looking around to see if there was anything I could swipe, BE STILL MY HEART!!!!
I found Linzi Alford's book JEWELRY FOR ALL SEASONS in the bookcase....
This is just one of the bookcases.....but! anyway. I digress....
Today, when I found Linzi's book, I found what I have always imagined I'd like to do as a jewelry maker. That's why I drive Brenda nuts to buy me more beads. Don't worry, she will. I am relentless.
She would not, however, give me her copy.... she would not even lend it to me! And this is why:
WOW! Signed by Linzi herself!
Looking at the beautiful photos, I saw lots of new opportunities to mix beads and stampings from B'sue Boutiques
And then Brenda told me that Linzi was on her Design Team for awhile, and also wrote a bunch of tutorials for the website, too!

I saw B'sue Boutiques bead caps in the book, as well:
This book has inspired me more than words can say. I rushed right over to Amazon to buy a copy, and you should, too!
Barnes and Noble also has it.
Hard to get the glare out of that photo....but you get the idea! I could learn to make a bunch of necklaces like this with B'sue's stuff and the great ideas in Linzi's book.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Linzi Alford, for writing this book! My head is now full of great new designs I can't wait to learn how to make!
