Blog Props ~ Tahoma Beadworks & Photography

For this month's praise-worthy blog, I'm nominating that of my creative friend, JoJo. With Tahoma Beadworks & Photography, she showcases all of her lovely crafts, with a diversity stretching from tie-dye, to sand art, to gorgeous jewelry, to pretty cards, all made by the lady herself! And, I have to admit, what I like best about these blog-props posts is that I can let the pictures do all the talking! JoJo promises to re-open her Etsy shop and I truly hope she does, 'cause I heart, heart, heart her work, and I reckon you will, too. Click on the captions to see the blog post in which each image originally appeared.

First, the crafts and beadworks!

Next, the photography!

Clearly, JoJo's an incredible talent, and I hope y'all will visit Tahoma Beadworks & Photography soon, and tell your friends about it, too!

All images, except for the Blog Props Meme, belong to JoJo and were posted here with her kind permission.


  1. Wow! Jo Jo is amazingly talented. I'm heading over there now. :)

  2. This is beautiful stuff! I'm also heading over there to have a look.

  3. OMG!!! Thank you so much for the props Mina!! You are too kind. Thank you for supporting my humble little bloggy too. LOVE YOU!!! :D

  4. I love those pictures, especially the sunset and snow beach. The candles are really pretty. :)

  5. Thanks for all the lovely sentiments, everybody! Glad you're all digging JoJo's work as much as I do!

    @JoJo It's truly my pleasure. I can't craft anything but words (and melodies, if we're talking music), so my respect for folks who can make beautiful objects of art with their own two hands knows no bounds. <3

  6. Gorgeous photos! I lived for a year in Seattle, in Mt. Ranier's shadow, basically. I have to say, never once did I see (lenticular?)cloud formations like that. I might have stayed! :)

  7. I'm going to have to check here out...

  8. Beautiful! I love that tie-dyed ornament!

  9. this is a good blog - very worthy of awardy stuff..

  10. Agreed, David, and glad y'all are enjoying! Heather, me too!

  11. Amazing talent! Thanks for sharing this. I love that necklace and votive cup.

  12. LOOOOOVE the clouds!!
    Or anything with cool or extreme weather--and that pic is great!
    Love your blog Mina--always interesting.
    P.S. Doesn't the extreme weather always make you feel like something weird is going to happen--like something is brewing beyond the storm??

  13. That glass is beautiful. I'm so impressed that you got the most interesting man in the world to sign off on your blog. Congratulations :)

  14. @Jackie - me too!

    @Penelope - Thanks, and YES! Extreme weather gives me a witchy feeling...not sure how to explain it, but definitely a sense of something momentous lurking on the horizon...

    @Michael - I gots connections, yo.

    And to all y'all who haven't already done it - you gonna sign up for my Resurrection Blogfest, or what? ::taps toes::

  15. I like the votive. The Cape Cod pictures are stunning. And the one with the clouds is amazing!
