New Year, New Beads, New Tool...



Happy New Year everyone, hope you had a great holiday season & are now looking forward to a great new year like me...life is good, I have no excuses nor any real reasons for not blogging or listing beads for over a month...I am having a great time playing mom to Mooshi, she is such a great dog & we are so happy to have her...I did have a bit of a cold for a few days, but other than that all is good around here...

I made some new beads, listed some & will be listing more in my etsy shop...including a brand new design from me called Charming Grace, since the idea is really Grace's, over the holidays Frank made this new tool that Grace played with it & came up with this cool idea with love love the Pinch Me Right...a very cool hip tool that does a lot of fun things, you need to figure all the cool things that are possible with this tool...

Also with the new year we started our Private Beadmaking Parties at the studio...the group on Monday Jan 10 was so so so nice, there was 8 students in class and for 2 hours I thought them how to make one bead and I have to say they all did such an awesome job, I had a ton of fun with them, they are a very artsy fun group, I look forward to seeing Mary-Lee & her group of glass addicts again at the studio soon...can you tell in the photo below which bead is mine, no one had any experience in glass prior this two hour class/party...

Oh ok now for the winner of the last blog post which was oh my gosh all the way back in December 2010, is Janette from NV. Enter to win the trio of yummy focal beads in the photo above by making a comment on this blog post...

Thanks for stopping by, life is good...

Beautiful colors and swirls! Love the swirls!

Saw your family at Phil's on Sunday...it's a small, small world!

Have fun at Arrowsprings.

Yay - you're back! I wish I lived closer so I could be a novice bead-maker in your class... Lovely focals, and I really like the new Etsy listings. Pondering a purchase...

What a great group of beads from your class!
I am delighted to win the bead. It is lovely and the twisty design reminds me of one you made for me at my house on the hot head.
Thanks! Janette

Hi,

Glad for you that you took some "time off" to play with the puppy... it should be good for the creative juices and that's ALWAYS good for us!!!

love the trio of beads jelveh (& the ones from the private beadmaking parties aren't too shabby either - they sound like the kind of fun I would like to join in if I was closer) - so glad you are enjoying Mooshi(I have 5 of my own Mooshi's - love them all!!)
