So long time no chat! Sorry... again... lol
I have nothing to blame but my procrastinating tendencies.
On the up side, I DID get a blog hop in PLUS I managed to get my Christmas tree down … it's still in my living room, BUT it's all boxed up and ready to get hauled back into storage, just as soon as I move crap around in there again.
… that only took me a month to do ;)
Here's to hoping February will see me being a bit more productive! :D
So, you are all no doubt wondering what I've been up to.
Well...I STILL have the reorganizing I started originally back in.. November, I think. I did progress ( sort of) away from my desk and is spread out over my floor where I can access everything to see that it gets where I want it.... see...?

Of course... I get my stone, shell and half my glass sorted, and realize I'm going to need something bigger for my metals... those little gray guys just aren't going to cut it anymore >.< Luckily I managed to catch them on sale again and got the last one in the size I wanted!! Once I finish getting those little drawers all filled and labeled, I have to clear off the desk and shelves and figure out the best place to put them all :) But hey... I'm getting there!
And... while procrastinating over THAT, I created a NEW mess, by recycling some of my bubble mailers :) I only got about a third done when I ran out of glue, but here's what my new butterflies look like...
For those wondering … and too lazy to go check the rafflecopter widgets to see the name displayed...
1) the winner of the Tori Sophia ear wires was Angela :) She has already received her goodies and no doubt has used them all up by now ;)
2) the winner of F.F. #13 was Shaiha .. and I shall get it in the mail to her soon :)
3) the 'With a Twist' n the title of this post does indeed go with the Freebie Friday giveaway ;)
For those of you who don't like this idea... blame Kashmira... she suggested it ;) lol
The last day of February is World Rare Disease Day ( http://globalgenes.org/world-rare-disease-day/ ) As such, I thought we'd try a little something different with this goodie bundle.
Most of you have heard of the Global Genes Project & their 7000 Bracelets for Hope campaign. Each year, thousands of blue bracelets are made and donated to this group, who then gifts them to the mothers and caregivers of children with rare diseases.
So this round there's a condition … you can only enter if you're willing to do something in exchange for winning ;)
The goodie bundle this month is primarily blues... and whoever wins it, must make and donate one bracelet to the Global Genes Project. They don't have to use all of their prize, they don't even have to use ANY of it... they can use beads from their own stash instead. They just have to make sure their bracelet complies with the groups requirements ( http://globalgenes.org/7000-bracelets-for-hope/ ) :)
Since it's still winter, I'll add some pretty silver snowflake charms to this, as well :)
