Hi there,I heard on the 2nd from Bead Trends, I was a little dissapointed though because I must have sent in about a dozen projects and they only picked 1!!

By the way, I LOVE Pecan pie too :)

Well, don't be disappointed. You did better than I did - since I haven't heard from them they apparently didn't want anything from me for that month. I sent in a lot of designs, too. Got my 2nd rejection from "BeadStyle" this month, too. I guess I'm just the rejection queen right now LOL!

Hey Kiddo,

You once lived in Idaho Falls??? What a very small world :) I went to college in Pocatello, and lived in Boise/Meridian area when we move here!

Pattie - I don't know about "lived" LOL! I was born there, though. My Dad was in the Navy at the time and the Navy's Nuclear Training program was located there. Not sure how long we stayed but not more than a year or so. I don't remember it at all, of course.
