Join The Party!


Welcome to the Grow Your Blog party created by the beautiful blog, 2 Bags Full! I am so excited to be taking part in this wonderful adventure! I cannot wait to meet, greet and follow more blogs, and hopefully gain some new followers and friends of my own blog! I am a mixed media jewelry artist who is new to blogging, hence why this badge is in my actual post and not on the side. I haven't figured out how to get it there and not mess up the rest of my sidebar! My blog is a "behind the beads" peek at all the wonderful things going on in my world. Of course, not everything is wonderful, but then nobody wants to read about that. The rest, I plan to glaze over with humor! Seriously, I hope you will join me on this journey and I hope you enjoy my blog! I will keep this post nice and short, as I know you have a lot of blog hopping to do. However, to sweeten the pot, if you follow, comment or email me (tab on the sidebar) before February 1st, then I will send you a pair of earrings! Welcome to Blue Finch!

Until next time, I hope you grow your blog too!

  1. Hi, I'm already a follower. I'm intrigued by your 'horse flesh' reference. I live on a farm in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (reindeer habitat?) and it's been my lifelong dream to have a horse. I look forward to talking to you after the GYB party.

  4. Welcome to the world of blogging! In no time you will have the hang of it and your blog will be even more gorgious. I love the background and your header. Bead work has always amazed me, I play with them in my art but my art isn't totally dedicated to it. I looked at a few posts down and your work is stunning.

    I hope you enjoy your blog hop

  26. You have a very lovely blog! I did think your blog was going to be about bird watching as I had just come from two others all about birds. lol! I love birds myself, but it was funny when I read Blue Finch and thought, "oh, I wonder if these ladies all know each other?" lol! But it is about lovely jewelry! Yay, I love making jewelry and yours in gorgeous! Wow!
    I am glad you are here in Bloglandia. Best wishes with your art : )

  36. Wow, your beadwork is so beautiful. I've thought about learning to do beadwork and then sanity was restored and God led me to "finish what you already have started, Marrianna." That let's me enjoy all the lovely beadwork I see from artists like you. I am a new follower and found you via the Grow Your Blog Party. I also see that we both have the same blog designer. I had Karen Valentine design my blog this last August and I love it. Please visit me and look at my artwork and enter for the giveaway.

  55. Hi there, nice to 'meet' you--going to start following! Your jewelry is beautiful, and your bead room is UNBELIEVABLE! You are a serious bead person!! I love how you said you'd be 'glazing over" the un-wonderful parts of your life :-) I make jewelry too, though not so much beading as soldering. Hoping you can stop by my blog and giveaway, too!
