Featured in ParaWire

Ok, I'm a little late to tell you about this, but better late than never.  This month I was the featured artist in Parawire's newsletter!  It was kinda fun to see my flowers in their email.  I've been buying my wire exclusively from Parawire for 3 years now and have been very happy with the quality and customer service.  

They also have a sale going on this month for all 26gauge wire.  Super helpful if you are like me and do some major ordering and restocking at the beginning of the year.

Can you believe it? 
2015 is here.
It's time to start fresh. Even though it'll still be winter for awhile, start thinking spring NOW, and your whole outlook will be a little bit brighter!
