On another happy note, I went out tonight for some household supplies, and I found something that I have been looking for for a very long time. I decided to take a chance and purchase it and see how it was and then if I didn't like it, I would take it back... but it does exactly what it is supposed to do! It's a Sunlight lamp! I put it in my office and turned it on and gosh, I felt like I was outside in the natural light making my jewelry. It made the colors of the beads I was adding to the glass easier to see and it helped to make sure I was adding the right thing. Fabulous investment! Plus it's supposed to boost your mood. So that along with my CD rocking the walls in my office, I sat and bounced around in my chair singing at the top of my lungs for 2 hours and made the set that I'll show you tomorrow! Can't wait to get your opinions!
Talk to you tomorrow and have a great night!

This is a picture of my Jewelry Armoire (which I purchased last year from where else? Pier 1 Imports) I have the mirror that hung in my grandfathers room (he is a constant source of inspiration for me), and my closet. Yes the door is closed because I didn't think to open it, but it's where I keep all my beads, all neatly organized in trays and bead boxes, my stereo (the speakers are around the room) and my show supplies. On the handle to the closet door is my Pink Lemonade Boutique bag, which I'm sure a lot of you know about. She makes fabulous bags, and I bring this one to every show I do.

There is also a secret project that Carey and I are working on. Hopefully we will have it completed by the time she ventures back to MD, and then we can premier it next week! Stay tuned!!!! Hope you enjoy the last of the sunshine this week... if you have any weather favors you can pull in, I'd really appreciate it!! :)

Martha always has a wealth of information available, so even if you don't blog, you should definately swing over and check out her site. Don't we all aspire to be Martha? I know I do!! :)

We've also power washed all the chipping paint (well most of it) off of our deck, and now it needs to be sanded and stained before the snow flies. I know that seems far off but time really flies when you have a mountain of projects to do. Sheds to finish building, garages to clean, basements to waterproof on top of the regular household duties. Plus my foot has been really hurting this past week. I think I'm getting over anxious in getting out of this boot and I'm overdoing it big time!
Anyway, I got in some really beautiful beads to create with and I'm hoping to sit down this weekend and create some fall pieces. On a good note, I have been invited back to the Farmers Market for two more dates this fall/winter... it's by invitation only and they asked me to return!! I'm so happy about that! Even though it will be cold, I know I can persuade my hubby to make me some sides for my tent! ha ha I'll just add it to the list... that and some jewelry boards to hang in various salons for holiday sales... and some winter proofing of the windows and storm doors... *sigh*... That to do list is endless! :)

With that said, it's been a crazy week here already. I'm finding less and less time to sit and create new pieces, because we are having an issue with one of my cats and she is pretty much destroying the carpets in my house. So I have been consumed with trying to clean up after her and needless to say, we have already had to cut the majority of the carpet out of the hallway upstairs. So hopefully we can get that situation under control... QUICKLY and then I can move on to bigger and better!
Hope you all have a great day, I'm off to get the kiddo's ready for school, then I'll have a little time to do something for myself... hmmm what will it be? I wonder!

You can't beat a good bead show! Ann and I went down to North Haven yesterday afternoon and rummaged through "Heaven!"... What I mean by that is... tables and tables upon tables of fabulous glass/gemstone/silver beads! Ugh, If I could have moved in, believe me, I would have!! Love the glass, I'm such an addict! I guess there could be worse things I could be addicted to... but no, it's the shiny, sparkly, beautiful handcrafted GLASS!

I may have pictures of a couple more, but I have to search the computer. Then my plan is to take some additional pictures of the earrings I have in stock and perhaps have a small end of summer sale. I have some great earrings with dragonflies, hummingbirds, and lady bugs! Really cute!
I'm heading out to the Bead Bazaar tomorrow to take a peak at what they have so maybe I'll have something to show when I get back! Hope you're having a great day!

Let me know what you would like me to design for you, a Key Chain, Phone Charm, Pendant?
Or do you want to leave it up to me to decide. :)
Thanks to everyone else who participated! Don't worry I'll do this again sometime, it was a lot of fun. I have something in mind for around Thanksgiving time, but maybe I can get somthing in before that as well.
Have a great night!
