Ebay, Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest, This Blog, Etc, Etc....................

...........where else can one sell stuff ?  There are lots of places but I gotta set a limit.  Geesh, I really don't want to be sitting at this computer day in and day out listing stuff all over the place as it's been lately.  Still, I have soooooooooo many handmade lampwork glass beads, mine and other bead artist beads that have been sitting for a very long time and need to find new homes.  So I've been listing or advertising wherever I can.  :)  I forgot how much work it is and how much time must be put into it.  Whew.  Thanks goodness for coffee breaks.  lol !  

So, I've stepped back into selling some beads on Ebay again.  It's been MANY years I've dabbled in selling over there.  I have so many of other peoples beads though and that's where I'm listing them.  Along with 80,000 other listings.  I remember when there were probably less than half of that number and maybe even less than that.  

I bought all these other beads before I started making my own lampwork beads and while I was still making jewelry all the time.  I did use a bunch but have a bunch more.  These days, I only make jewelry now and then and I have to be in the mood or just forget about it.  So all these gorgeous beads need to find new homes. 

Check out what I have listed on Ebay now.  Click on this Beads On Ebay to go to one of my listings then click on my other listings to see what's up for grabs.  I'll be listing more until I have no more to list.  lol !  My Etsy shop here  All My Beads  still carries only my beads and soon, other goodies I've made and are just sitting.  lol ! 

Here's a link with photo's straight to my Etsy shop.  I have no other beads to show yet as I haven't been able to torch yet BUT the day I will be able to is just around the corner !  The pollen count has come down to double digits now !  Yay !  Hopefully it'll stay that way and go down even more soon ! 

Thanks very much for coming by.  I hope you come back again soon.

Long Overdue Update

Where has the time gone !  Lately, I'm sitting right here at the computer filling my Etsy shop and promoting where I can.  :)  Lots of seat time that's for sure. 

Hopefully very soon I'll be back at the torch with all new beads to show.  I have lots of new things to explore and play with !  I'm really excited about trying some new glass I just bought called veiled cane duo's made by GG Glass .  I know it'll be lots of fun.  I've worked with glass very similar to the veiled cane however it's only one color in that manufacturers line.  I'm really looking forward to making my bell flower beads with some of those colors.  Yummy ! 

In the meantime, while I'm waiting to get back to torching, I've put together some new items for my Etsy shop.  They are the bell flower bouquets.  Two are just bell flowers and one is put together with several different flowers plus the bell flowers & a critter like the one pictured.  

The other two are like the ones pictured below.  Pick multicolors or just one color. 

So come on by my Etsy shop at www.allmybeads.etsy.com and check these out along with all the other beads I've been listing.  Right now, I still have Grand Re-Opening Specials going on and FREE SHIPPING so come on by and take a look ~!  :)    
Something else I've been working on lately is my new All My Beads Facebook Page !  Yep, finally my bead page which is open to everyone.  So come on by and "Like" my page or leave a comment under one of my photo's.
Thanks so much for coming by !  I hope you come back again soon !

Still Nothing New To Report

Just thought I'd put in an update.  No torching just yet.  The nasty yellow pine pollen is in full swing which also means all outdoor pollen is in full swing.  No open windows for ventilation right now.  Hopefully in 2 -3 weeks.  sigh............That pine pollen has our black outdoor grill looking pretty green right now.  Ick.  I can't wait to get back to the torch and do what it is I LOVE to do the most - melt glass - make beads !  :)   

Still working on the reopening of my Etsy shop.  Just click on the link or any of the photo's below to go there to see the new items I've been listing all week.  :)  I had forgotten how much work is involved but that's ok.  I have all these beads that need to find new homes and much more to come !  :)  Right now, you will still receive FREE SPACER BEADS with every order.  There will be other specials for the entire month of April for the Grand Re-opening so come back often to check it out.  :)  And as always, FREE SHIPPING.  That MAY change in the near future so now's the time to order if you have something in mind.  :)   

Thanks so much for coming by !  I hope you come back again soon.  :)
