We're off

After a hectic day of packing, I think I got everything under control.  I am ready to relax a little tonight before the big day of driving that is ahead of us.  I will be back on March 1st (seems so long away but I know if will go fast.)  Any orders placed during that time will be shipped as soon as we get home.  I will be sure to take tons of pictures and post for you all to see.  Take care!

Today's Special

I am marking this set down to $20 for today and tomorrow (normally $35)  This is a great set with bright tropical/summer colors.

Thanks so much to everyone who posted about our trip.  I appreciate all your words and suggestions.

I videotaped it when we told the kids on Saturday.  I have been trying to figure out how to put it online, but not sure how to do that yet.  It was so funny.  This is the story...

Justin had been growing a winter beard.  In some conversation he said when he shaves the beard that would mean we were going to Disney.  (this was awhile ago)  I didn't know if the kids would notice right away that he shaved or if it would take awhile for it to click.  Saturday morning he went in the bathroom, locked the door and shaved it off.  I was out videotaping the kids and they were making their funny faces.  Justin walked out of the bedroom and Jayla screams right away, throws her arms in the air and runs over to him asking all sorts of questions.  Cana, who is 5, is so confused and just stares at his face with the most puzzling face I have ever seen.  Pretty soon she reaches up to touch his bare skin.  Lukin, who is 3, starts running and jumping as well.  When we ask what is going on he replies "I don't know"  Amerah caught on in a little while and was super excited as well.  It has made me so much more excited being able to talk to them about going to Disney and showing them pictures of Sea World online and seeing how excited they are.

As you can imagine this week I am pretty busy getting things ready.  I will try to get a couple new sets posted online.  Remember that I won't be shipping anything next week at all.

No new beads today...  But I do have something to share.  We are going to DISNEY!!!!  The kids don't know yet, we are telling them tomorrow.  We will be leaving next Saturday the 21st and be home the next week.  I am really nervous about the trip (we are driving) and how everything will go, but know it will be a great time and our kids will LOVE it!  They have been asking about going for a long time.  We are thinking of going to Disney for 2 days, SeaWorld, the beach and a day to hang out.  This is totally new to me, we have never taken a trip and I haven't traveled much in my life.  If you have any tips or suggestions I would love to hear them.
Have a great weekend!

Will get them on the website soon...


I will be adding some new beads later...  It is a beautiful day here in Iowa, high of 60 today.  How fun is that????  I also added a couple shows for the year.  I will be at Bead Haven in Cedar Rapids on April 3rd and 4th.  I also will be doing the Bead and Button show this year.  I am excited to do it, but also a little nervous.  I have A LOT to do to get ready.  Anyone going???

Special on Confetti!

As I was retaking a picture of this set, I was reminded of how much I liked it (I didn't think the other picture was very good)  Anyway, I thought I would have a little sale on this set.  Regularly it is $30, but for today and tomorrow I am offering it for $20 and FREE shipping.  The free shipping will only work if you order just this set, but of coarse you can order other sets with it, I will refund the shipping amount it charges.   This is a super fun set for summer.

I am teaching 1st grade this afternoon, so no beadmaking time for me today.  I do have some picture of some new sets I took yesterday, so I hope to get those listed later tonight.  Have a great Tuesday!
