Hello to one and all ! This weeks post is simply put, all about information about this and that. Probably not going to be very long post but hopefully some fun and info about my little corner of the world. :)
First of all, I am hosting a giveaway over on my Facebook page. Click All My Beads Facebook to go directly to my Beads page and LIKE my page. Once I reach 100 LIKES on the PAGE (not on a post) then I will be hosting the giveaway and will post what the giveaway prize will be and the rules. Don't worry, the rules won't be a hassle to deal with. lol ! Some fun little game or something. :)
My Etsy shop listings are finally dwindling down. Slowly but surely. Just an FYI - If you want anything over there, please shop now. As all of the listings expire, I am not and will NOT be relisting any of it EXCEPT for the hand dyed silk cords and bellflower beads/headpins. You can check out my Etsy shop HERE or click on any picture to the right in my Etsy shop.
With the heatwave still in full force with temps in the high 90's and with heat index temps of over 100 degrees, I'm still unable to sit at my beloved torch and make glass beads. sigh. Even very early in the morning it's still in the 70's with 100% humidity (we live near a huge lake). Just can't justify opening that window to draw in back up air and heat up my work area anymore ! lol ! With a kiln set at garaging temp of 950 degrees to 960 degrees and the heat of the torch PLUS humid outside air, UGH ! Really not worth the impending heat stroke it will cause me ! lol ! So, I sit and wait for the cool. sigh. It'll come. :)
Still no inclination what-so-ever to make, design, create jewelry. Not one iota of creativity either. What's up with that ??? lol ! Usually summertime, when I can't torch, is the high point of my jewelry making. Not this summer.
Very soon I will be updating some posts I've made in the past. One in particular, tips and tricks for using the bellflower press. If there are any other posts you'd like to see updated or revised, please leave me a comment below. :) It won't show up immediately but it will be posted. :)
Below are just a few of my favorite photo's saved from the web.
I don't know the photographer or even remember where I got the first photo but isn't the color amazing !
Just for fun. I LOVE Snoopy. One of my all time favorite characters.
Think Snow ! :)
Ok that's it for now. Thanks so much for coming by ! I hope you come back again very soon.
