Hi! How’s everyone’s new year going so far? We went to see Tale of Despereauxtoday – it’s not at all like I remember the book, so I guess I’m going to have to read it again and see what’s what. Luckily, the first time I read it, I read it in one night. It was really cute and actually a good book, so hopefully it won’t take me forever to read like books do now – for some reason, I can’t get much reading done at night anymore – I can read 5 or 10 pages then need to go to sleep. Then, I can’t sleep. But I guess that’s another post.
In the meantime, I listed some more focals and some valentine beads in the etsy SueBeads shop today – take a look! The focals are certainly cool, but I am particularly fond of the heart I made, pictured. It’s basically a ready to wear necklace, if you want, because it’s strung on some beautiful black silk cord. The silver spacers are sterling brushed silver and the accent beads are so pretty too! The heart is only decorated on one side, so it shouldn’t bother you when you are wearing it! If you want it, click on it!
Tomorrow, we are running up to my friend’s house to see her two new puppies – little girls, Jack Russell Terriers. Hopefully I’ll have some photos to show of them – from the pictures I’ve seen, they are too cute!
This set of beautiful southwest inspired beads are going to expire today in my SueBeads etsy shop – take a look – they are on sale – 20% off. If you want them, you should buy them now!!!!! Click on them if you want them! SOLD – Thanks Di!
Happy New Year to everyone! I actually stayed up until midnight last night! We had some good friends over for dinner and a nice bottle of prosecco I brought back from Italy, and had a very nice evening! That’s what it’s all about!
I don’t actually make “resolutions” because I have this personal philosophy that resolutions set you up to fail! However, this year I have decided goals are in order. They aren’t huge – get my closet in order, get all my beads and supplies in order, try to lose this weight I have gained since my surgery. But I also want to get some more designs in magazines, and get more creative with my beads – this means spending more time “playing” and opening myself up! We’ll see… meantime, I think I will be opening a new etsy store for my destash! I’ll let you know when that happens – the “goal” is by the end of January!
Also, in a few days, the February 2009 Simply Beads magazine will be out. I have an earring design in it – they are fun, flirty earrings made with my beads and swarovski crystals. Take a look – I’ll be listing the bead selections on the home page of SueBeads tonight or tomorrow, for order!
Thanks to all my customers for making my year great! I hope to get a mailing list started, and offer some blog giveaways and specials this year!
