Festa Botanica and the Big Book Giveaway!

May is quickly approaching and for those of you who have followed the Beadweaver Blog, you know May is Beadweaver's anniversary!!! And guess what? This year it is Beadweaver's fifth anniversary of covering beadweaving online :)

I have recently received five (how coincidental!) new books from various publishers including Kalmbach and Lark - some of the best books by the best artists around! So...in honor of the fifth anniversary of Beadweaver, I have decided to give these books away to you, my wonderful readers! Each book will be reviewed and given away in a drawing like we've done in the past through the month of May. Are you excited? I am!!!

What books are they? I can't tell you because it would spoil the surprise :)

The Big Book Giveaway will commence next week. Be sure to sign up for my email newsletter to be entered into the drawings. You can click on "Get Posts by eMail" to the left to subscribe. More details on that to come.

The images in this post are a sneak peek at what I've made for our upcoming Festa Botanica which will be going on this weekend at the Turtle Bay Arboretum (my fingers are nothing but bones!). A few new patterns will be coming your way out of these lovely creations.... (Sunshine Lariat, top left; Giant Flower Rings, above; and a lovely Beehive Bracelet - tba!)

See you in a week!
