2019 Bead Peeps Swap & Hop Reveal!

To my Peeps: I think as I get older, sickness lasts longer. Everyone is better now and down to sniffles.  On to the good stuff. My partner for this years' Swap & Hop was Dain Schlegel of Dainty Designs.  However, she is recovering from a surgery and wasn't able to get beads to me.  I hope she gets better soon.  So Linda Anderson set me up with an Angel.  Krafty Max sent me a whole lot of beads.

These are the charms I received: List of Parti
