Happy Halloween everyone! This year my kids are old enough to go around by themselves, unescorted, and even though I’m happy about it, I feel left out! I like seeing how excited they are and I like walking around with my friends and talking while the kids are running! Oh well, that’s how life goes. The Pretty in Pink beads sold fast. If you want some, I have enough of the frit to make at least one more set, maybe two. If you do, shoot me an email or a convo on etsy!
Here’s some beads I just put in my etsy store – Pretty In Pink Frosted Sparkles! I loved that movie (showing my age here!) – my friend Lisa and I would listen to the “tape” all the time (really showing my age here)! The frit used to make these beads is called Pretty in Pink and the beads were wrapped in pure silver wire, and etched – I think they are very pretty! Hope you do to – you can click on them to buy them!
Hi everyone – new beads in the etsy store – Gum Drops! They are really cute – as you can see, they look just like gum drops! Don’t give them to small children, though! You could make a cute holiday bracelet out of the set, or order more for a necklace or lots of earrings to sell at your craft fair! Speaking of which, a reminder that I will be taking all my inventory to a craft fair at the beginning of December, so please purchase what you want from the etsy store inventory in November. This also includes all the scrabble tiles.
BTW, I have been getting several special city requests from people for the scrabble tile maps. I really have fun doing these – they would be fantastic stocking stuffers! Let me know if you want one in a particular city. I also have lots from places all over the world! I’ll be putting some up soon, but they will go to the craft fair as well.
The holiday beads shown below were sold already! They are relisted as Made To Order – I’ll be making them tomorrow, so not a real wait, anyways! Also, if you want more or less, please let me know! I’ll be MORE than happy to make you a set or two or three… I love making them – they are so festive!
I just listed three more sets of beads in the etsy store – two holiday sets and one frosty olive sparkle set. They are all very pretty – I’m really happy with how they turned out! Good for your holiday gifts!
Also, I just found out the gift I made for my mom for her birthday will be featured in a future issue of BeadStyle Magazine. I don’t even know when, yet, but when I know, I’ll let you know! Some of my beads were used, of course! It’s a great, easy, stylish, versatile design!
Hi – I have some frosty teal beads listed in my etsy store. They are made with Uroboros clear, so the clear doesn’t etch but the frit does. It makes for an interesting effect. They were wrapped in pure silver wire. Very pretty!
On another note, at the beginning of December I will be participating in my daughter’s school holiday shoppe. I will be taking all my inventory from SueBeads and BellaHannahJane, so if there’s anything you want, please purchase it during November. Anything that doesn’t sell at the show will be back in the etsy stores, but not right away. I will be going away for a week to a very nice, warm location!
Hi everyone! Happy Sunday – I’m looking forward to watching the Steeler game today. Don’t even get me started on the Santonio Holmes thing. If you don’t know about it, click here. Not only is it stupid for himself, it’s a disgrace to one of the best football teams this year. He messed the game up today for all his teammates, who I hope are appropriately ticked at him.
On to another topic! Is anyone planning on buying any beads before the holidays, to sell jewelry or make things for loved ones, etc.? Would you take a second to hit my poll? Business is so slow, I’d love to know if it’s just a little bit too early, or it’s not going to pick up at all! Thanks!
I just wanted to take a minute to post about Lauscha transparent red – my new favorite color! It is so pretty, but is also so easy to strike! The vetrofond striking red I have is not very nice, and moretti is even harder to strike than this red. Hopefully this weekend I’ll have pics to show you of what I made with the red – pretty pretty! In the meantime, take my word for it, you’ll love that Lauscha Red!
It’s one of those weeks, where every day and every night is taken up by some kind of appointment (or two) or activity. Tomorrow after my 7:40 a.m. appointment with my son’s math teacher (another day….) I will finally be able to make beads since I think Friday? So, hopefully I’ll have something new to share one of these days. In the meantime, here’s a little eye candy from etsy store!
It’s been really slow, I know it’s because of the economy – it really trickles down! Anyways, there’s two focal sets on ebay right now, that I personally think are very pretty and amazingly priced. Check them out!
