Zero is what I have for you today in terms of new artists. Honestly, there just are not many artists with names that begin with "Z". I'm open to suggestions.
Even though there were times I viciously cursed this blog hop, I'm strangely sad now that it's over. I am going to miss it. I will do something with all those letters I beaded, just not right now. When the time is right I'll get on it.
I have to mention a HUGE surprise. This hop helped me re-connect with an old friend. It's just a tad unfair because here I am blabbing away in cyberspace, bearing my bead-loving soul for all to see, and aside from some very nice words of encouragement he has been silent. Not one to badger, I hope I will hear something about how the past 20 years have treated him (HINT, HINT).
I was not able to get to all 2000+ blogs (ha! good luck with that one), but I made an effort and visited quite a few. Below are a handful of the blogs I've been enjoying regularly this month. I hope even though the challenge is over they keep on blogging. I also hope they all come back next year.
