Thank You & New Beads...

Well what can I say, I am so thankful for the great response to the Jelveh Designs Key Mandrel...it has been selling like hot cakes & with that comes a ton of shipping & record keeping, thank goodness for my friend Cathy, she has helped me out a lot... what is it they say, be careful what you ask for, you might just get it...I am very appreciative & thankful for all the love everyone...

As fun as the new tool & its sales have been, the most fun for me is melting glass & making beads, so back to our regularly scheduled program we go...I have some new beads for you this week, click here to check them out...

also we have a winner for last weeks Key Bead with the pink flowers on a pea green & black base...the winner is long time favorite Ginny of Fl. for this week, I have one of my Landscape beads inspired by our trip to Reno this month...there is a full moon on one side & a winter tree on the other...it measures 31x28x7mm & enter to win by making a comment on this post about anything you like...

In other news hubby started his very cool new job this week & on Sat we saw Star Trek, I have to hand it to JJ Abrams for doing it well, some fans may disagree but I thought it was brilliant & well done. Over the weekend it grossed $76 million+ an amazing number, not to mention it beats the weekend gross for the highest Star Trek movie to date by $40 million...if you are a fan you will love it, if you are not a fan may just become one...

Life is good, hope yours is awesome too...thanks for stopping by...

Jelveh

Peace

Oh, wow! Again! At the end of your post, you said that you hoped that our lives were awesome just as your is! With friends like you who give away beautiful pieces of art, how could my life get any better?
Thank you so much, sweet Jelveh!

I knew that new mandrel would be a hot item for you!!!! I am so happy for you.

Tell us in your next post about Matin's new job! Beginnings are exciting to me!

Hi Jelveh,

Stunning bead as always! Just wanted to say a big thank you for my bead - it's stunning and I can't wait to turn it into jewellery. I gave you a little plug on my blog too http://ceegeejewellery.blogspot.com/2009/05/beauoootiful-bead.html (not that you need it!). Thanks again!

Lovely beads Jelveh, the Peacock Canyons are stunning. I am itching to see the new Star Trek, I may have to go with friends as my Hubby is less that keen. What is your Hunny’s new cool job? Have an ace week xxxxxx

The landscape bead for the giveaway is beautiful. I like the colors and design-full moon on one side and a winter tree on the other side.

Sue,I am glad you liked the movie too...it was fun.

Ginny girl, this time a computer random picker program picked your nubmer since hubby was not home to do it...you are too kind & well deserving of the wins, I think its the power of being good you bring all good things in your life, we all do...about hubby's job, see below...

Thanks so much Shana, more about his work below...

Carolyn, so glad you got the bead & like it, love to see what you make with it...

Thanks for the good words Mel...I think you will like Star Trek, take him anyway, he may even like it...about hubby's job, read below...

Thanks so much for the good words acptuser, I love working on landscape beads...

thanks everyone for the good words, ok about hubby's job, he is a Marketing Director, for years Jelveh Designs has been branded & made known due to his great talent, but I cannot afford to hire him full time, so he has to work for other bigger companies...

his basic work is to lead a team of cool creative people in branding, promoting & marketing a company’s products...mostly in the computer securities field...that is all I can really say about his work, now his new job is with a nicer company than the last & he gets to do more fun things in a nicer setting...course from time to time he will consult for Jelveh Designs, when he has the time & I nag him for help...he is the one who created my logo 8 years ago, he is the one who has thought me how to brand it everywhere & to promote my company...he says that Jelveh Designs is more important that just a job, since it is mine & I can make it anything I want... and it is true, I have always had fun making beads & promoting Jelveh Designs with a lot of help from my live in Marketing Director...thanks for all the love, off to melt some glass & do some more shipping..
Jelveh
Peace

Totally with you on Star Trek. I thought it was an amazing film and definatly goes on my top 10 list.

I also tagged you, so if you fancy having a go you can find details on my blog.

I'm so excited about your new invention. It's so neat how God gives us an ideal and its up to us weather we run with it or not. So glad you chose to run with it. You truly have a God given talent and it shows with every bead you make. Carolyn Fla.

Rickie said...

So happy to hear that your key mandrel sales were a hit and that your hubby is settling in with a new job that he likes! That's a feat these days in California!

Love all your pretty new beads! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sue said...

Hi Jelveh,

Love the new bead...hope it is my week to win. Thanks for sharing so much on your blog, we love to keep up with you. Sue

Jelveh Designs said...

Hey Leslie, you might just like this one, I like Star Trek because I like to believe that all humans one day can give up the ego and self & become one for the good of all, I know its perhaps too idealistic, but I am a kid in many ways (she said a week before her 45th birthday) so you may like it, but without back stories mught not be as exciting for you...thanks for the good words too...I love purple...

Thanks for the tag Nicky, once I am done with making beads and shipping the Key Mandrel, if I have time on Friday I will stop by, but I can not make any promises...yes on the top 10 list at least top 2 of the series...

thanks carolyn, you are too kind...dont know much about having a gift, I just thought it would work, and I am glad folks like it...thanks again...


Thanks so much Rickie on all fronts, you are too kind...life is good...

Thanks so much Sue, you know what they say, power of positive thinking...I will put in a word for you with the random picker thing...thanks again...
