Imagine my surprise this morning when I found out I won the Humble Bead contest! I am so excited not only do I never win anything but I am in love with Heather's beads. My plan is to use the summer as a time of experiment with my beading - learn some new techniques, try some new projects and also have fun. I have been thinking about this for awhile - I have more than enough jewelry in my Etsy shop and to sell at the one craft show I do in the summer - so why not spend some time working on learning, designing and trying a major project or two. These beads are going to fit right in with my plans. I am a Happy Hutter!!!!!
