The Color of Dreams Glossi Publication

This blog hop was so lovely, and so inspiring! Thank you everyone for your thoughtful posts, your moving words, your phenomenal jewelry, beautiful photography, unique and varied designs. And most of all, thank you for sharing your dreams! How hopeful and wonderful it has been to read everyone's posts! Your dreams are an inspiration to me! Your jewelry art is amazing. Your courageous willingness to share personally, to create your dreams in art, made this one of the best blog hops ever! 

When blog hops I've participated in have been this terrific, I've dreamed of having a way to catalog and keep the links to the blog hop posts. I have wished for a way to keep all the posts together, to have one content list, so returning to a blog hop was possible at any moment in time.  It would be so cool to return to the Heather Powers hop I participated in a couple years ago, for example, and to again see all the designs, or refresh my memory regarding an idea or way to use a Humblebeads bead. 

Here it is! My dream :) I've put together a Glossi publication featuring everyone's designs, with links to all the Color of Dreams blog posts. I hope you enjoy the publication now, and even years from now, have fun looking back at all the awesome contributions! 

And Another Chance at Another Giveaway

 I'd like to share another giveaway just for the fun of it! Leave a comment on my Bead Soup Blog Party 8 post -- link here -- and you will be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to Lima Beads! That could come in handy with a few beads here and a bead or two more there as you design and create your finest jewelry of the year for Bead Soup Blog Party! The winner of the $20 Lima Beads gift certificate will be chosen using random.org and announced Sunday, April 20th. Good luck!
