Today’s Thrifty Thursday is gifts from friends!  A couple of friends, one old and one new were cleaning out their unused items and gifted me some great crafty things!  Thank You!

Sparkle & Doom DesignsFirstly, my old friend Michelle, who I have not been in touch with for about 6 years, had beads left over from a garage sale.  I happened to see her ad on kijiji and she gifted me with the remaining beads! Wow!! I have yet to take the time to make something, but I will gift gift Michelle with something pretty! 🙂

Some really pretty orange (my favorite colour besides black and grey) stone beads, teal beads, and a bunch of odd beads. I love collections of mismatched beads!
