Floral Holiday Blog Hop Reveal

Today is the big day!  The reveal of the Floral Holiday Blog Hop.  The talented participants were sent a bead packet containing brightly colored lucite petals, leaves, flowers, and other beads. Their challenge was to create something holiday themed  (not necessarily jewelry) for whatever holiday(s) they celebrate in December. An example of one bead packet is shown here:

I did not make a piece of jewelry this time.  I was so excited about the hop, I forgot to save a kit for myself!  A big thank you to all of the participants - I am excited to see what they made, how about you! Please visit their blogs listed below.  Happy Holidays everyone!
