Therese's Birthday Surprise Challenge


To help her celebrate, she sent 7 of us these gorgeous Golem beads and cabochons to work with.  Today, Her Day, is Hop Day :-)
She also told us that it is Kristen and Lola's birthday this past week too.  Happy Birthday Kristen!!!  Happy Birthday Lola!!!  Hope you had great birthdays and ate something so bad yet so good :-D


Happy Happy Birthday Therese!!!  I know you are working today but I hope you get to celebrate at some point.  Asking us to be a part of your day is a really special honor and I hope we all did right by these beauties you sent us!

For your Birthday, I am sending this right back to you, completed :-)  Surprise!!!  It is going in the mailbox Monday morning (which really probably means Tues or Wed).
I love you, my are one of the best gifts I have ever received.
