    I like the pasture strap.

    I’d definitely get a bunch of wooden beads — I’m not sure what else (yet!).

    LOVE the Animal Print Camera Strap. My friend teaches beading classes, so I’d love to make a bracelet like she does with the Bead Crafty beads!

    I like the “clay” strap, and I would make myself a really nice long necklace, and a matching one for my sister.

    My favourite camera strap is the one with the Little Hearts in blue.

    I would give my best friend the BeadCrafty certificate because she adores that kind of things… and because she’s much better than me at making handmade wonders 🙂

    I would choose the Crayon Strap Product Code: CT011.
    I would use my bead GC to get beads to use on metal yard art sculptures for my yard. I would get glass beads mostly.

    I love the Almond camera strap from !Mo. I’m really loving the 10mm Semi Precious Beads – Amazonite…I’d probably make a necklace/bracelet set out of them.

    My favorite camera strap is the Japanese Owl.

    I’d select some pearl beads, silver heart charms, and Pandora-style beads for my daughter’s wedding events.

    I would probably choose the Lemon Tree strap, but it is a difficult choice. They are all so cute. As for the beads…I would make necklaces and matching earrings for myself and for gifts. Thanks for the chance!
