Technically I've only had one Guest Blogger, the lovely Emz, but I have had quite a few Guest Spots now.
Today's post is how I "met" Pauline who has guested for me a few times at Curling Stones. Our conversation about beads started back in early August 2012 when I approached her as a random stranger via Facebook and that conversation has never really stopped.

We exchanged emails, I sent her a link to my very "new" blog, she told me she knew where I lived!!!! Blimey I thought, first Internet stalker and I've only been blogging for 2 weeks!! Turns out it was all harmless as Pauline also lives in Yorkshire and had recognised where I was shopping simply by my descriptions of the shops, now there's a lady who knows her Trollbeads!
I had literally only just started the blog when I asked Pauline to guest, I was a relatively new collector and I was looking for some inspiration and someone who knew a lot more about Trollbeads who could guest on my blog.
Well I found inspiration and enthusiasm in bucketfuls with Pauline, she was generous, gracious and also very quick for a non-blogger - from initial contact, to ideas, to editing, to published post was only 2 weeks!
Unbeknownst to me at the time I'd stumbled upon one of the darlings of the Trollbead Collecting Community and I've never looked back.
You never know when that random stranger is about to become a good friend!
