Thank You, Part 2

I'd like to show my appreciation to the people you have included me in their treasuries in December.

Sheryl of Sher Hasting Designs included my Dance of the Veils Bracelet in her Fun Fun Fun treasury.   Sheryl is a talented professional designer.  She is also one of my blogging friends.  Her blog is called My Creative Space and is always fun and interesting to read.  Sheryl offers PDF digital images for crafters to use in scrapbooking, card making and other craft projects.  I am really drawn to these images of tea pots in her Tea Time Graphic Art and Clipart Set - I love to drink tea, especially in the winter!  Sheryl has a tea pot for every occasion here:

Vanessa of Vanessa Story Designs included my Dance of the Veils Bracelet in her I'll Have a Blue Etsy on Christmas Inspired by Nature Gift Ideas treasury.  Vanessa was an assistant silversmith to her mother as a child, and as a young adult she was a colorist for her mother's  illustrations. These days, Vanessa makes jewelry, jewelry boxes and paintings.  She is deeply inspired by nature in her art and jewelry.  I really love this Turquoise Necklace with Spider Web Design - Vanessa has such an interesting story to go with it; be sure to check it out!

Kalyn of Kalyn Designs included my Beaded Snowflake Ornament in her Snowflakes Keep Falling! treasury.  Kalyn makes lovely wedding accessories.  I especially like her Red Hydrangea and Berries Hair Comb.  It is so pretty!

Pylly of Sending Love Gallery included my Icy Snowflake Ornament in her Midnight Snow treasury.  Phylly makes beautiful jewelry from precious metals, gemstones, pearls and art glass.  I really love the dark iridescence of her Black Pearl Bracelet.  I think this bracelet would dress up any outfit.

Candan of Candan Imrak included my White Snowflake Ornament in her Mother of Pearl Holiday Gift Ideas treasury.  Candan lives on a beautiful peninsula in Turkey, where she makes wonderful lampwork beads.  As a beader, lampwork beads have a special place in my heart.   I really love the deep, rich organic colors in her Kilim Lampwork Glass Earrings.
I have more thank you features to post.  Stay tuned for another update.  In the meantime, I would like to thank all of you for being a great community.  I hope you are having an awesome new year!
