Bead Star 2010

Shoot For The Stars!
I hope everyone enjoyed my interview with this year's Bead Star Erin Strother.  Did you like the photo of Erin vacuuming with her trophy and sash? 

I have to tell you, I am surrounded by fabulous women named "Erin".  My other extraordinary, inspiring friend is Erin Prais-Hintz.  She won 1st place in the Under $25 category.  Erin is an incredible designer so it was no surprise that she won the category.  What is really amazing is that the design was a collaboration between mother and her 3rd grade daughter.  Please visit Erin Prais-Hintz blog to read the heart touching story.  Leave a comment congratulating the "Tiny Dancer!"

Below are my designs that won prizes this year in Bead Star.  I would like to thank everyone who voted in the contest.  The magazine is packed full of beautiful designs.  Melanie Stafford did an amazing job on this issue.

How cool is this, Erin and I on the same page!
Happy New Year everyone!  Please be safe tonight.  I am going to Mr. Joe's Annual Poker Party!  What are you doing tonight?


  1. Contratulations on all your winning entries!!!! I need to pick up a copy of this issue.

  2. You blew it out of the water with all your winning pieces, D! I also loved Erin P.H.'s back story for her winning piece. I knew as soon as I saw that piece in the finals it would win. I call her "the other Erin"--she probably calls me the same thing. :-)

    Why does everyone think its so weird to vacuum wearing a sash??? Unfortunately, the photo of me showering in my sash was a bit too racy to publish.
