Saturday Night Special - Facebook Albums

Hi all! Tonight's Saturday Night Special is up on the fan page. I didn't want to forget it this week! It's a heart and I'm even offering a wire wrapped - ready to wear special:

Gathering Moss

I was reading a beadmakers tips page on Facebook and someone pointed out she always kept her available inventory in albums on Facebook... moving sold items over to a 'sold' album. This way customers can see at a glance what is available...or ask for remakes. 

I thought it was a great idea although I'm kinda embarrassed at the sheer volume of inventory I have! One of those bead makers who makes a bead  / sells a bead I am NOT! I recently sold a set of beads that had been listed on FB 28 times, on Etsy for over a year, countess times on ebay and even took a spin on my website! they were lovely, reasonably priced (actually sold for more than their original asking price though!) and purple! There is no telling what will sell and when. 

But I don't want to overwhelm the fan page with photos. So far, only the Sets and focals are up. But I will be adding more, then prices in the coming week. 

Happy Saturday and, as always, thanks for l@@king!

Pink Sale on the Fan Page and Private Groups!

I got bit by the "pink bug" a while back and the beads are finally ready to show off! So I'm having a sale on my Fan Page. I've decided..."what's the point in having a fan page if the fans don't get some kind of perk?" So... I've been posting "Saturday Night Specials and random sales of groups of never-before-seen beads!

Today's sale is all the Pinks I've been making! These are all up for grabs right now on the fan page!

 And... several of the groups I'm an admin of have made the decision to go private! Private groups simply get more traffic and more sales! Many customers have told us flat out, "I won't shop on public pages!"  So if the customers want it... We do it! both the Fire Divas Market and Glass Bead for Sale went you can't see anything for sale unless you are a join us, won't you??

The Fire Divas Market is a market exclusively for the glass art made by the members of the Fire Divas Team.
Many of our buyers have expressed a desire to close the group
so that only our valued members can see the great deals
being offered in the Fire Divas Glass Market. The

is a fun. limited rule environment featuring many types of glass bead art from artists all over the world!

If you're not already a member, I urge you to come on over and join the fun!

Fresh Glass | Where Have I Been??

Fresh Glass from July 1:  A Dark Waters long focal and 2 sets of earring pairs.

 I've been sorting through photos... trying to get in the listing habit and I'm just wondering where the heck I've been...for months?? I found folders of photos as far back as APRIL unedited! And then I keep finding the same photos that have been taken over and over and over. Sorting it out took me all day yesterday and several part-days before that. I'm finally editing photos from July and have five that need re-takes or supplementary shots. Sigh...

Do you ever feel you haven't really been in your life?? It's been a strange year and a busy one. I'm sitting here stunned it's half over.  But from long teaching assignment to back to back to back jobs, doing my own taxes for the first time ever, along with two sudden deaths of friends and one family member's prolonged illness and recent death and onto an extended work trip to take care of issues in my 92 year old mom's house followed by weeks of severe shoulder pain... I just feel like I'm on some kind of roller coaster that won't ever stop! 

I'm hoping that the sorting of pics and beads will get me back on track... OY!
