So, here is October, my favorite month of the year! The weather has cooled down (actually way too fast and hard!) and we have even had some flurries! A tad too early, but good for droughts! Halloween is coming soon and that is one of my favorite celebrations! It is also the month of my birthday. I will be celebrating on 10/11/12 and will be 50. I am seriously thinking because of the number line up that it should be lottery ticket day as well LOL It is also a ‘money bags’ month with 5 Fridays this year! woot! I will be having a 25% off on my website! I was going to do 13%, but many consider that an unlucky number..and honestly, that isn’t much of a sale! 🙂 Up until the 11th, I will be updating my website. Yeah, call me a slacker! I have many many pieces that are NOT on the site, so to have a good sale, I should list everything or as much as possible until then.
I have several things done as of the last few days. The first image is 6 Tila Accordion bracelets heading for the East Coast. The second image is a custom barrette for my best barrette customer…this is her sixth one!
I had said on Facebook that the Tila Accordions bracelets felt like I was in an endurance race. It was a test of my will power to complete 6 of these in a row. They took me about a week and a half to do up. So happy to have so many done at once…makes for a great photo 🙂 Pattern HERE
Now I am free to do a few other projects..that’s a good thing because I have a project I am really liking on the table and several others lined up I can’t wait to get to!
I have a few new entries to post today for the Birds of a Feather contest. They are fabulous! Deadline to enter->October 31!!
and the icing on the cake over the last few days..and a miracle to boot! I was chosen as one of 4 winners this month with Preciosa for my blog entry. I will be receiving a 1000 grams of beads from them. I was over the moon for an entire day before the realization sat quietly! I am so excited and happy!! I will post a photo of my winnings when they are received..and how cool would that be if they landed in my mailbox on my birthday. I doubt it, but one can hope!
The image just LOOKS like icing on a birthday cake doesn’t it?? LOL So, I’ll be back Wednesday to tell you more about the sale on my website and ohhhh, almost forgot a giveaway!! Stay tuned for details!
