Did you enter Bead Dreams 214 in the Ms. Maddie's Fabulous Florals category? Was it rejected by Bead Dreams? Mine was, as were entries from some talented friends. We came up with the idea of making a blog post into an online exhibit with the floral creations that didn't make it to the finals so that the Berlowitz family can see the lovely beadwork created in honor of Merle.
If you would like to have your beadwork included in the blog post, send me a photo with your name and name of the item to me at email@example.com. If you know of someone who entered the contest, pass on the request. Thank you.
