Its Creative Bead Chat Administrator Appreciation Day: "Go raibh maith agaibh"

You're asking yourself "What the heck does that mean?" -- Let me tell you!

First, the translation:  Go raibh maith agaibh -- is Gaelic for "Thank you" (to more than one person) and since there are SEVERAL site administrators *I will name them all in a few* this saying is PERFECT!
First, if you're a beader and don't know about Creative Bead Chat on Facebook, let me give you the link and drop what you're doing (well, after my post that is) and RUN to join! These are the BEST people I have encountered in a very long time!  There are very few groups in which you will find that people are genuinely kind and actually care about you......this would be one of them!

Okay!  Here's the link to Creative Bead Chat:

Now, to the Administrators and how completely 100% awesome they are!

I don't know each and every one personally.  It's truly amazing how things work over there.  Before I saw the names of the administrators I only knew of two! That's how smoothly they run things!  We had an amazing Destash Day where everyone who had anything beading related to sell was able to put up pics and prices and sell to members of the group.  We had a giveaway day for those of us who couldn't go to Bead Fest......There were so many generous people that gave prizes and Marla James spent the entire day at her computer listing giveaways! She did all this with a smile on her face (you could tell by her posts).

Let me show you what I won! These are more stunning in person than in the photo and they're GORGEOUS in the photo!

Okay, so, let me show you who the administrators are via their Etsy shops & blogs! 
Marla James:  Here is Marla's blog Marla's Mud Mess
Melinda Orr:  Melinda's blog is here:  Melinda Orr Designs
Karen Totten:  Karen's blog is here:  Starry Road Studio
Marla Gibson:  (Marla's shop is currently not open but you can find her at her blog here -- Spice Box Designs
Keirsten Giles:  Keirsten's blog is here: The Cerebral Dilettante

I'm not the only person who believes this is an AMAZING group! There are over 1,100 members!  Each and every person I have encountered has been someone I have been thankful to call my friend.  

If you haven't joined us yet, stop on by! You will be welcomed with open arms! 

Keep Beading Goddesses!  And another THANK YOU to the AMAZING administrators at Creative Bead Chat! You are all doing an OUTSTANDING job and are so very appreciated!
