Beads, Blog Hops and Challenges

A busy weekend coming up!

I thought I’d give you a heads up for lots of blog hopping this weekend coming up. I’ve managed to not only organize my own blog hop but join two others, so it’s beading central here this week!

First of all is my own hop, the Haberdashery Blog Hop. The challenge here is to use components from the haberdashery department—buttons, ribbons, lace, and more—in jewellery designs. I had a lovely time collecting bits and pieces, from my own craft stash and from a variety of shops and even a big craft show. And there are 35 or so other bloggers joining in. The reveal date is Saturday 2 August, and I plan to post in the morning. Note that many of the participants won’t post until it is Saturday wherever they happen to be in the world.

Also on Saturday is Lisa Lodge’s Summer Carnival Blog Hop. As with Lisa’s other hops, I have received a kit full of beads to make a piece or pieces for the hop. Because this hop in scheduled for Saturday in the USA, I’ll wait until my Saturday evening to post this one.

And finally Sunday sees the Choosy Chicks Choose Chicklets Design Challenge, organized by Rita from Jewel School Friends. She sent me a rather lovely chicklet bead from Suebeads to incorporate into a piece. I’ll post this one late on Sunday my time, to be in time with the US reveal.

So come back on the weekend to have a look at all of the designs I come up with!
