I've been Tagged by Kristy of Shiny Adornments!

Lets See....5 random things about me. Oh my...well, here goes!
  1. My favorite candy is "Skittles." I can eat a huge bag in one day! And...oh yeah, I have a cat named "Skittles" too.
  2. I am a list maker! I have to make a list of "to do's" for every day of the week. Without it, I am completely lost!
  3. I am a true blonde. No blonde jokes please...I've heard them all! lol! Although I am disguised as a dark burgany red for over a year now. It brings out my deep-set blue eyes and makes me look younger...shhh...don't tell my secret. :)
  4. If I have chocolate frosting in my house, I will sleepwalk in the middle of the night and eat at least half of it, then go right back to sleep. I know...totally wierd!
  5. Back in my partying days...long ago, I went to the same night-club quite frequently where every Thurday night, they would hold a "legs" contest, although it was really a "booty" contest. Well...someone dared me to do it, knowing that I never passed up a dare. Anyway, I actually went up on stage (with a few drinks in me) and hiked my skirt up and showed my legs! I didn't win (only cuz I wouldn't show my booty off) but it was fun and something off the wall, which I think everyone should do every once in a while. Life is too short not to!

Okay, there ya go! Now you know a little more about Brenda. And...I think you should know more things about the following wonderful and talented ladies I am about to tag.....hehehehe!

A New Design!

"Gold Ribbons"

This is a new necklace I created with non-tarnishing gold wire. It has swarovski crystals, a wire-wrapped glass teardrop with translucent colors of light green and gold, topped off with a traditional hook & eye clasp. Very delicate and drapes the neck beautifully!

You can find this pretty necklace along with all my other beaded jewelry for sale at my Etsy Shop -

My Secret Garden

This beautiful necklace was my very first custom order through my etsy shop! I was inspired by nature and wanted to create a necklace using many colors of only green. It was in a contest that I didn't win, but it was the only entry that "sold." I ended up making another one, so to me, I really did win...maybe not the contest, but my necklace sold twice, and I ended up making a very nice friend from it. :)
