Inspiration from others

I always look forward to seeing what Kristen makes with the beads she orders.  She has such creative ideas and is so talented.  Here are some pictures she recently posted on her blog.  You can check out her etsy to see what else she has to offer.  Great Job Kristen!

 Liz also has an etsy shop with some beads that she has purchased.  She also has some great designs.  I absolutely LOVE seeing what you make so PLEASE send me pictures.

I made some great new sets yesterday and am excited to show them to you.

Teaching again!

Yesterday I started to panic because I have so many beads to make before my show next weekend in Cedar Rapids.   Like I said I just sent a huge shipment to Wisconsin for the Art and glass show.  I still have a lot of beads, but always want to have a lot to choose from.  I was telling my husband last night my plan of taking no subbing jobs, making beads every afternoon and at night after the kids go to bed.  2 minutes later I get a call to sub this afternoon, my reply "Of course I can do it"  What????  I have so much to do!!!  I just can't say no when I get a call to sub, so that is what I am doing again this afternoon.  

Here are some boro sets that I added to the website.

A few new focals.  More to come...

Wednesday, March 25, 2009


So sorry for the lack of blog postings!!!  I have been super busy behind the scenes though.  I sent off a huge shipment of beads to Meant to Bead in Wisconsin for the art and glass show this weekend.  If you are in the Wisconsin area make sure to check it out.  I also have a show this next weekend in Cedar Rapids at Bead Haven, so I am getting lots of beads made for that show as well.  I have a few new focals and a couple boro sets to show, just need some good photos.  

I have subbed the last 2 days in the afternoon, and am subbing this afternoon as well, but hopefully in the next couple days I will have some new stuff.

I am loving all these new focals.  I bought some new handmade murrini from Renee at Jet Age Studio and think they are the neatest things ever to add to my beads.  Hope you like them!

Big hole beads!

Just added about 15 new large hole beads that will fit your pandora and troll bracelets.  All done in boro glass.  Yesterday I made some flower focals and sets.  Can't wait to get them out of the kiln, so be checking back for those soon.  Have a great Friday!
