Suburban Girl Design Team!

This year I've been trying to step of my "Shell" (pun intended there!!) and try different things, design-wise, with my jewelry.

Working with different colors, for instance,
is a big one for me this year.

So, putting my 'name in the hat' on people's blogs I follow who are having challenges, or give-a-ways, or asking for design team members and/or signing up for blog-hops (when I see them in time!) and things like this are just a couple of the things I'm doing this year to try to stretch myself artistically.

These actions I've taken have been rather successful so far  this year. I've been the recipient of some fabulous give-a-ways (and I truly thought I never won anything!) and I've had some great opportunities come my way.

One such opportunity happened just a couple of days ago.

I'm excited to announce that I was chosen to be on the Suburban Girl Studio's design team!

What good fortune! 

Have you seen the handcrafted porcelain, stoneware and raku bead components that Diana of

Hop on over to the Suburban Girl Studio and check out the other Design Team Members.

They're all pretty awesome if you ask me!

I want to thank Diana for putting the design team together and I hope I'm able to create designs that will truly highlight her components and allow them to shine!

Also, this Saturday (tomorrow!) is gonna be a big day, too!

It's a 2-for-1 here on my blog!

There will be the Echo Creative Club monthly reveal and Blog Hop and then also the 7000 Bracelets of Hope
Blog Hop is happening, too!

So, come back over here tomorrow and check out all that's going on. It'll be fun!!
