Paper Traders 1st Blog Hop

I am so excited to participate the First Paper Traders Blog Hop. I hope it will be a way for you to get to know me and a few of the other group members better, see our art, and get a chance to win some nice prizes that are being offered along the way.  Maybe you'll even be inspired by what you see and want to join the group.

The Blog Hop will be open the entire weekend of April 19-21, 2013.  Be sure to start at the Paper Traders Art Blog here http://papertraders-art.blogspot.com/ and follow the blog hop list of participating members below:

I am Sam, I live in North Cornwall, UK.  My artwork involves textiles and handmade beads, I get my inspiration from my local surroundings, the Cornish rugged coastline and the ocean, so a lot of my work is in blues and greens. 
 My sea inspired hand made beads prove to be very popular.  This is a fairly new blog , as I wanted a blog which was dedicated to my textile work !  I am constantly working on new projects and trying out new techniques. 

I am offering two gifts for my lucky winner !
The first item is one of my hand made textile brooches in teal blue.

 The second gift is a pack of my textile art beads, in sea inspired blues, the pack contains 6 beads.

These prizes will be randomly awarded to blog readers who leave me a warm, fuzzy comment.  Just comment below and provide a way for me to contact you and I will pick a randomly drawn name from those who leave a comment.  One entry per person, please.

Have fun on your journey and I hope you'll come back to visit soon!
