Particpating in the Bead Soup Blog Party!

I am excited to announce that I got lucky and was randomly chosen for a spot in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party!

My partner for the Bead Soup Blog party is Cathie Carroll!

I just love her Smile, Breathe and Go Slowly- Sari Silk Mixed Media Poetry Cuff! A wearable reminder to take it easy in a hectic life.

She also does Batik paintings, here is Wheelies I, Batik on Paper
shown with Wheelies II. She used such fun colors and movements in these wrapped canvas.

I got all of my bead soup ingredients together and will be shipping them out soon. I can't wait to see what Cathie and everyone else in the Bead Soup Blog Party makes! Stay tuned!

Time for changes and free shipping

Ah the New Year is here! When everything feels just about the same but fresh starts and resolutions are a hint in the air. Well... maybe not a fresh start or even resolutions, but how about some changes? And new beads?! I mean who doesn't like new beads right?

To start off I will no longer be doing 10% off for return customers, but to try and make up for it I will be offering FREE USPS 1st class shipping for US and Canada. I hope everyone is cool with that.

Also, I have been feeling a bit dissatisfied with my bead photos, I will be working on re-shooting pictures while adding new beads.

I will be switching from my little light box to a set up similar to this one on Handmadeology. Getting better photos is a challenge but the natural light looks so much better. Of course, I'm still learning.

Now time for some new eye-candy! Camouflaged Lampwork Big Hole Beads.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
