Use the Muse contest is made especially for those of us who tend to run in fear from entering creative contests, especially when we see the caliber of past entries.
Use the Muse was created by Scarlett Lanson of The Beader’s Muse, www.thebeadersmuse.com. Scarlett put together the kits (picture below) and included a mystery muse that is only revealed to those who purchase a kit and then to the world at large when all entries are posted on her website. This is my first contest. It’s pretty exciting! I hope my piece doesn’t suck.
I received my kit yesterday and all the beads are really beautiful as well as the mysterious muse, supplied by Lillypilly. But I cannot say anymore about the Muse! Do not ask me! I will not tell you! You will have to check out the entries when they are posted on The Beader’s Muse in order to see what the muse is.
The contest is sponsored by Artbeads.com, incidentally one of my favorite websites, and Rainbows of Light, a new site to me, which offers a wide variety of Swarovski beads, buttons and crystals.

Here is a picture of the really pretty beads included in the kit.
