Do You Want to Join the Sisterhood of the Travelling Beads?!?!?!?!

Okay, if you've ever seen the sisterhood of the travelling pants, you know the premise is that 4 friends share a pair of pants that magically fit all of them... Well, this is about a bazillion times better.

The sisterhood of the travelling beads is a group of artists who are sharing a HUGE (let me say it one more time... HUGE) box of beads with one another.  The beads travel to one sister at a time.  While with the sister, she can take out any beads she wants as long as she replaces them with beads of equal value.  She is then responsible for holding a drawing to identify the next sister and send the box to her. 

Why is this better than the sisterhood of the travelling pants?  Well, first, it's BEADS!!!  And, I don't know about you, but I like beads way better than jeans.  Second, you get to keep some of what you find.  Third, you get to meet and network with some awesome artists who you may not yet know.  Fourth, the included beads are worth more than $400!?!?!?!? Can you imagine $400 worth of beads showing up at your door for you to oogle?

The current sister is the lovely and talented Cindy Gimbrome AKA the Lampwork Diva.  For more information about becoming the next sister, check out her blog.  As I said, she is lovely and talented, so you should also check out her website full of beautiful glass pieces.

If you like beads, you should definitely check out the sisterhood.  It's a great way to meet other creative minds, get some awesome new beads, and destash your own beads!
