Is there ever enough time???

I feel like I am drowning in my list of "to do" items. Ever feel like that? So much to do but just can't find time to do it all. So sorry for the lack of blog posts this week. I think I am all caught up on my orders, so that is a relief! So thankful for each and every one of you who ordered. I know I say it all the time, but I would love to see pictures.

Speaking of pictures, here is Liz's etsy store. She has been a great customer for awhile and has her etsy shop all set up. I had a great time looking through it and seeing her creations with my beads. Her metal work is something I would love to do. Check it out here... See any familiar beads????

Here are a couple new boro sets I just added. Yesterday I made 6 more sets like this and can't wait to go get them out of the kiln this morning. Hope to get those added soon!

Have a great weekend!

6 NEW sets!!!!

Went to Hobby Lobby today and found a copy of Creative Jewelry. There are a couple pieces in there that have some of my beads in it. Can't wait to look through the whole magazine, looks like there is lots of great inspiration.

Just added 6 new bead sets to my website. I absolutely love this first set. Not sure what it is because they aren't really my colors, I just love the combination. Make sure you check out the post below this one if you haven't already checked out the interview, coupon code and free giveaway on Kerry's blog.

Interview with Kerry

OH my goodness, how super cool is this???? Check it out

Kerry is an amazing artist and writer. She expresses things so fluently and with such emotion. Writing is definitely one of my weaknesses, so I appreciate anyone who has that gift because I know not everyone can do that. Anyway, it was such a surprise when she emailed me last week and asked it she could do an "interview"with me. Make sure you leave a comment! She did a great job and it looks for fun. She just finished a book (if you don't already have it) that is terrific. So colorful and full of great inspiration.

Where do the days go?

Can't believe it is already the middle of July. I had sooooo many things I wanted to get done this summer, and it is already half over. Makes me so sad, although we have been having a great summer. Here are a few things I made this week. Will get them added to the website soon.

Hot one today!

Looks like today might be a pool day... Suppose to get up to 95 degrees.

I am still working on editing my pics from vacation, so should have some to show you soon.

Here are 3 necklaces I made yesterday while the kids were outside playing. It was fun to sit and design again. Haven't done it in awhile.
