Welcome, Tera Vermillion, Our Featured Member for January 2010, Owner of BOHEMIAN GLITZ

This month's Featured Member is Tera Vermillion, owner of BOHEMIAN GLITZ! The exclaimation point is mine because of those many years when I was young and considered to be "bohemian" in my choices of jewelry, clothes, etc.  So when I saw the name of her site
I was immediately intrigued!  You will not be disappointed at her beautifully created jewelry.  And, if you are not inspired to go make something, you are dead tired or sick!
So, I will post some pictures and you can let us all know what you think of her stunning creations!  Sharon

Hope you enjoyed this month's Featured Member, and if you are interested in being featured on the Front Page and our blog, or on one of my personal blogs, please let me know either thru our messages on our social networking page or my personal e-mail:  sharon_hightower@hotmail.com.

Thanks again, to Tera for letting us display her work!

Announcing a New Feature on our AJD/Ltd. Blog to Start February 1, 2010

Dear Members,

Beginning on February 1, 2010 - February 5, we will begin a new section on this blog where we nominate artisans from different areas to be chosen as our "Featured Guest Artisan" for the second half of Feburary (15th-28th).  This person will be featured differently than our Main Page Featured Member, as they will not belong to our blog, or to our social networking page.  In fact, being someone new to us will give us an opportunity to help promote their work and make some new friends. 

If you wish to nominate someone to be featured, please add a comment to this post, with the person's name, their website and/or blog, and please confirm with them that they would like to participate. 

At the end of the day Februrary 5th (6:00 p.m. CDST), I will announce the person who either was nominated the most times, or who I think will have something great to contribute to our Blog.  So, check out your non-member friends who are creative, that you admire and would like to share their work with us.  I will check with the person who nominated them to make sure that the nominee will know who I am and what this is about and if they are interested, they will appear on our AJD/Ltd. blog  as a "Featured Guest Artisan". 

Now don't let me down.  I am trying to get some things going on here and we can only be as good as our members!  And we have outstanding members.    We will still also have our Main Page
Featured Member on here every two weeks.  The "Featured Guest Member" will appear once a month.  So, if your choice doesn't make it the first time around, be sure to nominate them again with the reason why you think they deserve the recognition -- and it can just be that you are their best friend and know how wonderful their work is!  Or just tell me to check it out for myself!
Let's not make it too complicated. 

Sharon Hightower
