Kim, artists and thinkers who are not joiners and who don't have a political or group voice are sometimes call "The Cultural Creatives" - a term coined by Ray and Anderson in a book by that title. They maintain those 50 million CCs are changing the world. Vegans and artists are obvioiusly a part of that very independent movement. Norine"

Congratulations Norine! Please contact me with your mailing info!

Moving on.
Here's the prize for the February Bead Giveaway...

It's a Troll-size Laffy Taffy Bead, lined in sterling silver. Just the bead, not the bracelet.

(I like it best when you actually read the post and comment thoughtfully. I will not respond to the comments because it throws off the numbers for the drawing, but I read every one of them. If you need a reply from me, please send me an email.)

You are also automatically entered when you opt-in to the Beadist Mailing List. I encourage you to join the list if you're interested in beads, not just to enter the giveaway.

The drawing will be held on February 29th, and the winner will be posted here on TakingTheLongWayHome. The winner has one week to claim their prize. After that, I'll pick a new winner. So if you enter, be sure to check back here on the 29th to see if you won!


  1. I spent time yesterday playing with my Laffy Taffy beads, trying to decide how to use them. Still haven't decided. Funny, I can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that I can use them to make something and if it doesn't turn out the way I want it to, I can take it apart and make something else. I sit and study them and pair them with various wire and spacers and then end up doing nothing. Oh well, it just gives me pleasure to know I have them and to look at them. I suppose Freud would have an opinion about what that says about my personality. Tee hee!
