That's right, we're having a buy one get one (of equal or lesser value) 1/2 OFF sale until Nov 30th! There are at least 24 of the Etsy Glass Artists participating. I've added about 35 new jewelry items to my shop yesterday and still have more ready to list. Click on the sale image for the list of glass artists to choose from.

When we married my husband had a coffee cup with a cute drawing of a beaver on it that said "Its just one damn project after another!" That sums it up pretty good around here except it seems that many of my projects start before the previous one is completed. I'm into a woodworking project now that I foolishly thought I could do over last weekend...lol. Hopefully another day or so and I'll post it here.
Been putting more up on Etsy every few days. There's one bead that the more I look at it, the more I really, really like it. It is simpler in design than most of what I make. The shape is a bit chunky too. Take a look...

The Holidays are right around the corner! The EGA (etsy glass artists) we have put together a gift guide in the spirit of giving well-crafted handmade gifts this year. There are dozens of artists offering fantastic items!
Choosing a special handmade gift means so much more than grabbing a mass-produced item from the mall. You'll be buying American instead of from an overseas supplier. With the rash of lead tainted toys being sent to this country I'm afraid to buy my grandkids toys in the stores!
There is actually a movement going on here where you can pledge to buy handmade this Holiday Season and request that others do the same for you.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a simplier less commercial Holiday Season this year, sort of a back to basics? With the focus on the birth of Christ and spending quality time with family and friends.

Here is the article she wrote about my work. Thanks Jennifer!
