Sisterhood of the Traveling Bead Box

A girls just gotta have fun
There are so many responsibilities of my daily life that sometimes I get far too caught up in all the to do's. Every once in awhile I am reminded that I need to play too.  It is a long shot, a lottery of sorts so I may not win, but I could use a little speck of happiness in my life right now, a little something that I can look forward to. So I am hoping the stars will align and I will be chosen the lucky winner.

This fabulous box of beading goodies is currently in the hands of  Alice of The Bliss Guild. Alice will be adding her own touch of goodness to the traveling bead box and on August 18th she will be drawing the new recipient. Oh how I hope it will be me. :D

If you want to be part of the game visit Alice's blog at The Bliss Guild to enter.
