Originally, the thought of keeping a blog was about as apealing as wearing damp socks. Gradually however, I have gotten my groove on and found that it is indeed worth the effort. It challenges me a bit. I really like Blogland. So often, being a maker is a fairly solitary pursuit - mostly that suits me fine but it is handy-dandy to just "drop-in" on someones blog and feel like you have been out visiting and admire their work, be touched by their words and often have a good old giggle. It makes you feel a part of a community. It is a fast paced world now and it is all too easy to become isolated. I know that virtual community cannot replace the real thing but it is a nice stop-gap.
So, many thanks for listening to my prattle over the last 100 posts! If you would like to be in the draw to win this necklace, just leave a comment. Maybe you could say a word or two about why you like to blog. Or not whatever takes your fancy. I will draw a winner on Sunday so you have heaps of time to post!
I do wish the pics were better but I hope you get the idea. It is a vintagy looking piece with lots of components - pearls,glass and ceramic beads, along with some chandelier bits, found bits and chain. Oh and a couple of Swarovski crystals for good measure. It has a large open type of chain at the back so it would be easy to remove a couple of links if you wanted to make it shorter or add a clasp etc if you wanted to make it longer. If it comes to live with you, I am sure you will work it out!
