One World One Heart.

The winner of my button bracelet draw is comment number 6!

Congratulations to Letha. I have sent Letha a message and once you have replied with your contact details, I will be sending you your beautiful new bracelet!!!!

Thankyou so much to everyone for entering my draw and for such wonderful comments... and thankyou to those the commented on my other work and also became followers of my blog. You are all so lovely.

Unfortunately due to the bushfires we had here, I got very busy on some other projects (as explained in a previous post) so i didnt get the chance to go through and enter all the other fabulous prize draws that were part of this project. It is my mission though, to still go through all of your blogs and see your wonderful art :)

Care Bracelets for Bushfire survivors

I am totally behind this initiative of the lovely ladies at Beads on Kelly Street.

If you are able to make and donate a 3 round memory wire bracelet, you can send it to either BOK or you can send them to me and I will pass them on. I am going to get this idea going at Craftworks so I will have a parcel or 2 (or50) to send on anyway.

I know all you avid beaders out there have memory wire and you have spare beads, lets get making for these women that have lost everything. We know as women that pretty things for ourselves will always come after you have taken care of your loved ones. These ladies and girls will be rebuilding their lives and families needs before replacing jewellery for themselves. Let help give them a little smile.

" We want as many Beaders to start making Care Bracelets for the hundreds of women who have lost everything - we all have heaps of beads and memory wire - just make 3 turn bracelets - everyone can make these - there are easy and each one turns out differently. Mail them into BOKS we will wrap them, we will add a little card from who made it. When we have heaps we will forward them on to the affected areas. (We have spoken to our customers in the area and I am sure they will help with handing them out and if there is any ladies who live in the area who are on this forum please contact us). Lets make some pretties for these poor women. "
