Stick Pin Mania!!!!!

Hi everyone,

Recently I saw a You Tube video on making stick pins.  They are so easy and fun to make that I'm really having fun putting them together.  The colors, styles of beads, etc. are endless.  Attached is a few that I've made.  The picture is a little blurry, but you get the idea.  I'm thinking about hosting a swap.  I think it would be so much fun to see the types of beads and things others put together.  I love crystal beads, but there are so many others to chose from.  If anyone is interested in participating in a stick pin swap, leave me a comment and hopefully we can have some fun and make new friends. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join me in a stick pin swap.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
