    WHAT?!?!?!?!?! I subscribe to “Bead Trends” & love it — I look forward to receiving it every month! They always showcase such amazing designs — many from ladies I know through here — and the photos are gorgeous!

    How did you find out, Cindy? Will they be notifiying those of us who subscribe? Add me to the list of those NOT happy about this….. :( :( :(

    Wow that is upsetting. I haven’t bought it in awhile but it always has gorgeous work. Like you said beautiful photographs. Great color combo in this pick.

    Lynn – I saw it on their FaceBook page. That’s the only way I found out! I had submitted some pieces for beyond July, and had not heard if they were accepting…so now I know why!

    I kinda like red & purple, but I’m not one of those (oh what are they called..?)… Red Hat ladies!

    I used to be a red hat lady but they had more energy than I so eventually left. I donated all my hats and various things to charities. I still have all my purple tops and capris and jackets because I still love to wear purple. But when we all went out to lunch together and we all had our reds and purples on, it was such fun. There was so much friendship. I miss that. But I do continue to wear purple simply because I love it.

    I have old purple tops I wear with my jeans. I have lots of purple earrings.

    Great pick and great tribute. I was not familiar with the magazine but I know what a loss it must be. I only subscribe to Stringing.

    Thanks for the info, Cindy. I’ll check out their FB page. Still not happy…. :(

    I guess that explains why I can’t find the June edition in the bead store, and why I haven’t recieved my submission that was to be in that edition back. Pretty tacky to get the news this way, but I’m glad I now know.
