{art} : magical amethyst ring

oh, my stars and garters!

check out the beautiful amethyst ring i won...



it was made by the talented moorea seal who i met in indie biz last year...



as an artist date in december, i treated myself to a live episode of LA-TV. it was hosted by leigh-ann, indie biz instructor and creator of freckled nest...



and kyla roma, blogger extraordinaire and freckled nest designer...



we spent the evening on ustream (live video accompanied with chat) creating beautiful handmade journals together.

the evening involved lots of giggling, skilled crafting, chat room antics with fun people, and several giveaways. it was a fantastic artist date.

when i won the amethyst ring, i shrieked and did a very excited dance in my living room. i had been wishing for one of these rings and had never ever once in my life won a giveaway. what a thrill!

thank you to leigh-ann, kyla, and moorea for a truly lovely experience. i feel extra magical when wearing the ring. it has a story of wonderful women and artistry in it, and i am grateful for the generosity and friendship that brought it to me.
