Here's the new blog... well, same blog but new address?  =)  I will eventually have the website merged into the WordPress site too.  Consolidate!  Make my life a bit easier.  And make it worth paying to have the website, not that $20 a month is lot, but when I don't sell $20 worth of beads from it, well... kind of a waste, don't you think??

So here it is... all of my old blog posts are imported over there...

Come over and join me!  New look too!  =)  Yay!

Gearing up!

So between now and November 2, I have 4 bead shows and workshop scheduled.  Nuts?  Maybe.

But my new studio is shaping up nicely... I can find most of my stuff now!  I'm going to start taking all of my jewelry making supplies in and boxing them in color families instead of "seed beads", "lucite beads", etc.  Instead each box will have all the blues, reds, pinks, etc. regardless of what kind of bead it is.  This should make things a bit easier since I don't always remember that I have pink pearls in the pearl container.

I plan on making more finished jewelry.  At least to have as samples of what I do with my beads.  I know it's hard for some to picture in their mind what to do with them, especially hard for newbie jewelry makers.

The shop is still being unpacked, slowly but surely... actually I think things are moving along nicely.  It's been almost 4 weeks since we moved everything in.  I could never thank my friends Amy and Dean... and my hubby Jeff for getting it all moved lightening fast!  =)

Here's a piece of eye candy for ya, I made it yesterday, in my new studio =)
