Hello!


Long time no blog! It’s just been too busy, with frustrating things and with holiday things and I’m just ready for a nap! I am continuing my inventory sale until December 31st at midnight, so please use endofyearsale to get 25% off your order in my SueBeads etsy store! I’d really appreciate the orders!

I am continuing to add beads to the etsy store, so you can get some new beads for a great price if you use the code! Yesterday I had a little bit of time in between my laundry tub drain pipe bursting and my boyfriend coming to fix it, so I made some mini sparkle beads in some pretty colors which are going in the store shortly!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Inventory Reduction = Coupon Code!


I am not ready for Christmas. I had a migraine over the weekend. The medicine I used made me feel very wonky. Kids are home now. I need to reduce the inventory in my shop. Therefore, instead of having a daily deal, I am having a coupon code for my etsy store instead! Take 25% off your etsy order using code ENDOFYEARSALE. I’ll ship your beadies out as soon and I receive your order!

Sally Russick’s Ornament Blog Hop!

The wonderful and talented Sally Russick hosted an ornament blog hop! Since I was having fun making ornaments this season, I thought I’d play along! My partner happened to be Kathleen Lange Klik who is also a very lovely and talented person! I am going to have to steal the photo she shows of the ornament I made for her, because I can’t find mine (stomps foot and pouts). Here is what she made me! It’s lovely and on my tree right now!
She made the clasp herself, the ceramic bead is Elaine Ray (yum) and she made the hammered square herself as well! I really love it! It looks fantastic on the front of my tree! Here’s a list of everyone else who is participating – hop on over and see what they made!

Lead Student

My son’s school has a set of core values that every child is expected to follow and emulate. Each week, one student is chosen as “lead student”. This means they emulate the core values to an exceptional degree and are recognized for their leadership abilities. My son was lead student for the past week! Today at chapel, he traded in the medallion that the kids get to wear all week (as recognition for lead student) for a pin that he will get to wear on his chapel jacket lapel! I am so proud of him! He has become such a mature young man this school year, in addition to having an unbelievable growth spurt! I keep telling my friends he must want something really really big for Christmas, but I couldn’t be happier with my kids! I am a single parent and as many of you know, it’s very hard to do all you have to do and make sure your kids are on the right track all on your own. I have some pretty amazing kids!
