Can you Believe what she said…?????

Hi all, dont you love email marketing? now that I have your attention…I just wanted to say sorry for the silence, been busy getting ready for Turkey & fighting a sinus cold thing…its the weather I tell, its cold one day, sunny one day & wet the next…I am confused, its the end of May already….where is my sunshine…ok enough weather talk, life is good here, lets get to the beads…

I made tons of beads, all kinds of beads, big ones, little ones, fishy ones, flower ones, you name it, I made it, I even made a shirt & a skirt bead…more on them later…I have listed many of them in my etsy shop…some are sample beads I am taking to my class in Turkey…so they will not be listed, not yet anyway…so below is a photo of most of them together…

Beauty Contest…some of you may remember that I used run a beauty contest every few months, where you sent in photos of jewelry or art pieces made with my beads & then I had Fire Mountain Gem vote on the best one, so we are doing it again, this contest will start sometime in mid to late June, I will post photos on to the blog as they start arriving, & it will go until the 15th of Aug…Rules are simple, the piece has to included my glass beads or bead…1st place will get a $100.00 gift cert. to my etsy shop, 2nd place will get a $50.00 gift cert. & 3rd place will get a $25.00 one…please make sure your photos are nice and clear…after all your name will be on them…you can start sending photos in now, but officially the contest will not start until mid June…
New Tools, ok as you know I dont talk about a tool unless I love it…last week I ordered and got in the mail very fast a disk shape bead roller from Donna Fleckner of CGBeadRollers I got the disk one and she kindly sent me a sample one to take to my class in Turkey, which I am giving away to one of my students as a gift in one of the bead challenges that I do in class…now mind you this tool is not new, Donna has been selling these for a few years now, but its new to me…I love love love using these rollers, there is a set that I have listed today that was made entirely with the sample bead roller which Donna gives away monthly to one of her lucky buyers…check it out when you get a chance…
