More new beads.

Well I just wanted to show off some more new beads that are headed to Iowa this weekend. All four sets have been etched which I love the look of them when I do it makes me want to touch them all the time.
So if you are any where near Marshalltown Iowa tomorrow or Saturday stop by the Best Western for the Bead Show. Starts tomorrow at 5 pm. If you need directions shoot me an email and I will do the best I can.

New Bracelet

Oh my two posts on the same day you are going to think I am a really active blogger now! Not really I just had time to get this finished this afternoon so here it is. I really like how the amber glass in this and in the set of beads from earlier look so rich and reflect the light in such an amazing way.

New Beads

In an attempt to rescue myself from the most boring blog award I have a couple of new pictures here for you today. Just some of the new beads I will be taking with me to Marshalltown IA on Friday.
Some of you know why it has been so quiet around here lately. I have been having shows one weekend after the other and on the 3rd of October we are leaving for a three week trip to Michigan and New York and on that trip I am doing three more shows. I have been working hard to make sure I have enough new things to last the trip since I will not get to make anything new in the middle like I usually do when I do shows closer to home. Any way I am off to try and get more chore done so hopefully I can post again tomorrow.

Busy Day

Well today has been one of those inefficient days where you try really hard to get things done and nothing got accomplished. I am finally packed and ready to go to Watertown tomorrow for the Watertown Art Festival, but I did not get any new pictures taken to give you some eye candy here tonight. And frankly I am really tired and going to bed soon. We have to get up early so I am just going to give you a link to the show so if you are anywhere near you can come out and visit.

Alien Vegetation Beads

Do you ever have ideas in the middle of the night. Well when I do they are usually pretty off the wall. One night last week I could not sleep and for some reason (probably because that is all I ever think about) I was thinking about beads and these popped into my head. I was going to call them Alien Pods but when I made them they look more like plants than pods so they are Alien Vegetation. Now I want time to make enough for a big neck piece. Any votes for color?

Good morning! I did not realize that I had only posted once in a week guess that the harder I work the less I get done. I have been making beads and I promise to show some of them to you next week but today I am off to Sioux Falls to do a little shopping. Hit the bookstore and the Harley place (what happens when you take your Hubby shopping). I have a show tomorrow in down town Sioux Falls called "Sidewalk Arts Festival" and we have to be there at like 5 am so we always go over the day before. If you are in the area come check it out it is a fun One Day show.

Art in the Bag Project

Well the Art in the Bag project is done and shipped off to the auction. I added a few more accessories. A couple of which you can see here. The check book cover and wallet. I loved how the wallet came out it even has little pockets for those credit cards. And I had to use some red and white it was headed for Husker country. There are other little surprises in the bag too just for the fun of it.

You might want to check out the website for the project and maybe go to the auction it is a cancer benefit. Click on the link if you want to see the website: Art in the Bag
