Woot!! Woot!! I am a lucky winner!!!

Look at what I won!!! Lori & Kim make such wonderful glass murrini for glass artists to use in their beads and other creations. They are celebrating their 1st anniversary with a huge give away. They are giving away a pack of their murrini every day this month to lucky artists who have purchased from them since January. It's not too late to enter either, for every order placed this month they will enter your name into the drawing and if you have purchased from them on Etsy or just want to play, you can email them and they will enter you. How awesome is that? So head over to their site and have a look, you won't be disappointed!

I ordered some murrini from them a few weeks back and to tell you the truth, I have been hoarding it. I love just looking at it but want to make sure I don't waste it. I have ideas brewing, I just need to execute them.  So stay tuned, I'll be sure to post what I make with them and it will be soon!

What are murrini? "Murrini cane is made by building a picture or pattern in glass and pulling it down into a much smaller picture or pattern, much like Christmas candy is made.  These canes are snipped into little pieces and can be used to melt onto a glass bead, fused onto a sheet of glass or even suspended in resin to create jewelry, decorative items and whatever else your imagination tells you to do with them.  If you've ever heard the term "millifiore" well, that's when a lot of these little pieces of glass are put into one design." From Lori & Kim's website.

Lucky you! I can't wait to see what you make!!! I'm a total hoarder of Lori and Kim murrini. I use it, but I also just like to look at it and think about it. I think I'm in love with it. Have fun with your winnings, Jenny!
