Holy Crap Batman! Somebody's OLD!

OMD! (That's Oh my dog for you non-dog bloggers!) I almost forgot my birthday! And... the biggest sale of the year that I use to clean out my inventory!!!

It's a BIG birthday for me. As I told my bestie... "don't be lookin' for me!" I like to hide on my birthday and just do things I like to do with no one around to please but me! Since my new job is looming... I may just hide in my house with the phones and internets off! One last cuddle day with the pupster before I leave the realm of "work at home dog mommy" for the world of "mommy actually gets paid for work but she has to leave the house!" So not looking forward to that but... having actual money again will be nice!

But back to the birthday sale!  You can save 39% off my handmade glass beads and jewelry on my website through my birthday March 3. Just check out using code Birthdayfan39. This coupon is also valid on my Etsy shop.

Da Fine Print:
  • Minimum Purchase $10
  • No Made to Order
  • No Free Beads Gift Certs
  • You may save on bead but if you need me to wire wrap, that is charged at full price.
  • Not valid on my class tools / ebeads / Kumihimo supplies or Rubber Stamps for Jewelry. 
I never do a bigger discount that I do at my birthday so... stock up and save!!!

Fresh Glass Beads 2.18.14

I finally stole a little torch time for myself this weekend. Taxes and all the endless paperwork for the new job have really sapped my creative energy of late.

Bellflower Earrings

To me, the shape of a bellflower pressed glass headpin lends itself perfectly to earrings!

Last week, an old friend purchased a set of purple bellflowers as a gift for her mom - who I love and adore! As the bellflowers were a birthday gift, I had to whip up something a little extra for Mom Dianne's special day. She LOVES purple, btw:

I had the two little lavender butterflys and I always have some Swarkie bicones on hand. I really love how they came out!

Here's another set of earrings I made from some discontinued CIM glass (Sigh... Isn't that always the case with CIM... fall in love and it's no longer made or not the same color...ugh!)
The earrings above are available here. Anyone ordering before 2/15/14, will get a refund on shipping! ;-)

Boobie Beads Doing Good

I heard from a customer recently who orders my boobie beads. Regina is making boobie bracelets. Check 'em out:

Aren't they just adorable??? And I just love the special card she makes to go with them:

The bracelets are $15 and a portion of the proceeds ($5) of each bracelet will be donated to breast cancer, Avon and Susan G Komen walk. Regina is selling these by email at the moment. You can reach her here.

I just love that my little boobies are out in the world making people happy!

Fresh Glass 2.3.14 Ebay Auction

This is some of what has been keeping me busy. Not much of a haul but keep in mind, bellflower presses get HOT and I can only make a few per session.

I have a new auction up on ebay ending a few days. My strategy there is to ask the lowest price I will take for a bead (including feebay fees!)....NOT what I hope it would go for... I never have a bidding war so best to just ask what I want....
There's a few other close outs up there as well as myriad of crafts and collectibles...

Thanks as always for l@@king! I so appreciate your support!
