Recently, the Etsybloggers Street Team had a Journal swap. (See several other posts about the project.)
Anyway, I got a beautiful handmade journal from Debby of Storybeader. I loved reading her story and finding out that she lives just a few miles from where my mother's family settled when they came to America. It's a small world, really!

Anyway, in the secret portion of the diary, There was an envelope of pretty lime colored beads. It took me a while to get done, but I had purposed to make a little bracelet for myself to remember Debby's generosity and to remember the Journal Swap project. I had enough beads to also finish a pair of earrings! So here are the results:















Thanks, Deb!

Love the bracelet! And in answer to the question you left on my blog, the market is in Battle Ground. Let me know if you want to come up some time, I'm not there every week (more like every other week).
