So sorry about the neglect yesterday.  I had every intention of writing, just didn't get to it.  I added a few new sets yesterday.  When I do shows, people comment the most on the etched sets, which I don't have a lot of, so I thought I would make a couple more sets that are etched.  Hope you like them.

I have been busy these last couple days.  Not with beads or family, unfortunately something else has taken over... Mario Kart Wii.  I hate to admit it, but I am sneaking downstairs during supper time to play it.  I can pretty much beat anyone in my house (which sounds good, but isn't that great of an accomplishment)  If you have a wii, this is a great game.  The girls love to play it!

Boy, I am not getting as many new sets made as I was hoping to this week.  I forgot I am subbing 3 days in a row this week.  Although they are just half days, they sure take up a lot of time.  This afternoon I am off to the middle school.  Not my favorite age to do, but I am sure it will go great.  The teacher said she would just have them watch Ratatouille, I sure hope she was serious.

Changing things up...

This week I am going to be changing my sets around a bit.  I will be taking some off the site and adding some new, fresh sets.  I hope to get these 5 sets listed on the website today.  I am subbing Kindergarten today, one of my favorite ages, so we'll see what I can get done today.

Here are some pictures from prom this past Saturday.  My sister is in the black and my niece (well Justin's niece) is in the white.  I made her necklace, although it is kind of hard to see the details.  I took my girls to the grand march were all the couples walk down a sort of "runway".  They had so much fun ohhhh-ing and ahhhh-ing over the dresses.  Sure brought back memories of when Justin and I went to the prom.  I remember a picture of Justin and I standing outside with Kristyn standing beside us.  She was probably 4 or so, the age of Cana.

Here are some long overdue pictures from a few weekends ago when we took the family bowling.  The kids had a great time.  

Have a great weekend.  Tomorrow is prom, so hopefully I can have some fun prom pictures for you on Monday.  I made my niece a necklace.  I think it turned out pretty neat.  I used shades of turquoise and brass and it was about 46" long.  My little sister is also going.  My girls are so excited to go to the grand march and see all the girls dressed up.

New set

I have a new set to show you.  I think it is a great color combination, very classy yet neutral.  It is made with a base of ivory, silver foil and glass frit.  I am also having a  little special with this set.  If you buy this set this week I will send you, for free, and matching focal lentil (a $15 value).  You don't need to add it to the cart, I will just automatically send it to you.  I made some extras for myself and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.  They match the new swarovski crystals "mocca" perfectly.  These beads would also look beautiful with gold.

Barbara's Necklace

I am getting ready to go to school and sub today, but wanted to pop in really quick and show off a necklace made by Barbara.  Isn't it lovely?  I have never used that wirelace stuff, but I think it looks terrific with the curved focals.

Off for the weekend

These next couple days will be spent getting ready for my show this weekend.  I still need to string, price and get things packed up.  Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and weekend.  I will be back next week!

PInk -n- Green

I just added a new set to the website.  On my old website, this color combination was probably one of the most popular.  I used the same colors, lime green and hot pink, but with different designs.  Hope you like it!

Had a fun weekend.  We went bowling on Saturday.  I haven't been bowling for probably 10 years or so.  Out of 8 people I did get 3rd, (not telling my score ;)  I will show a few pictures later.

Got them listed!!!

I got all the lentils on the website.  If you want me to hold one back for you because you aren't quiet ready to order just let me know and I will hold it back for you.

New Lentils

I have been asked several times about some new lentils focals.  These are wonderful to put on pendent 625 (sold in the silver section of my website) then string on some leather.  I made some yesterday and they are all made with BORO glass.  They turned out great!  I am hoping to get them cleaned, photographed and added to the site soon.  I think I mentioned this before, but the leather I get is from Leather USA.  They have so many great colors, especially to match the colors in the boro beads.
