    Cool! These are the new cobalt Czech swirls, right? Perfect with the white & blue floral beads. And yes, the pops of green and red are awesome.

    Julie: Mine is a total disaster compared to these. I feel exactly the same as you! :) But I worked on my disaster some more last night and decided I will post it anyway, probably tonight late. I went for silly. Very silly! When you have no talent, you have to be the joker! :)
