    I LOVE Jewelry! I love to make it AND I love to wear it!  I love to look at beads and decide what color, texture, and shapes would look good together.

So if you love jewelry too, this blog is for you!  Check back often for new styles of interchangeable watchbands, Charm necklaces, bracelets, headbands, beanies, and earrings! My shop is in my home, so check out my blog at http://beadsofmyheart.blogspot.com or email me at wendysmmns@yahoo.com.  I will be giving away a Necklace, Stretch Bracelet, Fancy Headband, and a Flower Ring or Clip.  All four pieces come in this prize package!

The warmers come in 3 different sizes (full size, mid size and plug-ins) and they run off of a low watt light bulb. Just put your favorite scent into the dish and turn it on and your home will be smelling YUMMY in no time. The best part about Scentsy is that the warmers are safe for your home, the wax will never get hot enough to burn anyone, and the warmers are trendy and a great decor feature in your home or office.  This prize package includes this fabulous “Fright Night” full-sized warmer and a pumpkin bar roll!  ORRRRR…..you could choose any warmer you would like with a bar of your choice included!  When it says individual collection, make sure to click on “View Entire Individual Collection” to be able to see all of them…some people sometimes miss that. :)
