Hi everyone! I have been right out straight and accomplishing lots since my last post.
I have made some really cool earrings, called my ‘Shabby Chic‘ line.
and as of yesterday I have a new tutorial, called ‘Clover‘
In all my tutorials, I have never received the feedback like I received over this one. Thank you all so much! This one works up fairly quickly and is almost addictive. It makes you want to do many in different color schemes. I even thought I would try it as a 2 tone version, which was also much fun to assemble!
So that is what I have been up to. Crazy busy! Ever since my friend, Robynne, gave me her laptop for my birthday, I have been feeling much more productive! We actually moved the big computer to my beading desk and Dave uses the laptop. The big computer has all my work stuff on it, with the external hard drive and the printer and all the goodies and Dave enjoys sitting on the couch with the lap top and playing his games, so this worked out beautifully! Thanks again Robynne!
My ‘plate’ is actually still very full right now. I have secret new beads I am ‘playing with’ right now, to remain a secret for a bit longer, but as soon as they come out, I will have tutorials for them. I still have to make a few beaded pieces for my youngest daughter, Bianca (12), for Christmas and ship off. Then I have 4 hair sticks to make, a custom barrette, a pendant and earrings to match a cuff I sold last month, 2 tutorials for a beading mag publication for next year. I also had a big surprise a week back! I, on a whim, decided to enter the Beadwork Magazine challenge. Someone had posted it on the wall on Facebook, so I thought what the heck. I have never entered, I’ll throw my hat in the ring. Lo and behold, they chose me!! Me and only one other person! I received the kit the very next day and have until Feb 6th to do that up. I also have the Steampunk theme to do up for the Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild, due end of January. I think I will also be getting more work from my ‘secret source’.
So, it has been a bit crazy at my house. I have everyone else doing everything because I am so busy. I even had to pass the buck to my other daughter to decorate the Christmas tree. I have been literally at my desk hard and fast for 14-18 hours a day working on frenzy mode. Don’t get me wrong, I love this!! I DO love not having to do the dishes at all right now ;)
You will also notice slight changes in the website as I go. Having to rearrange things a bit because it is getting ‘full’ LOL Yesterday, I went to post ‘Clover’ and there was NO room to add it. So I had to rearrange my patterns page and spread out, so to speak. Hopefully also making it easier for my customers as well.
