Get Rid of Her!

EDITED she has all her money! Yay :) Thanks to those who helped!
 I'm doing another jewelry for missions deal ;)
I have a friend who is heading to Ireland to be a part of YWAM (youth with a mission) and we are helping her to raise the money that she needs for this!
I love being a part of this!
So, between now and the end of the month all the money from every sale is going to help her to meet this goal.
We are doing a night where my items will be available Tuesday after next you who are local. If you are not, anything you purchase from my shop will go straight to this need!

 Just to tempt, here are a few new piecs:

Getting my shop back in order has been fabulous. Oh how I've missed it!
I also did not realize how many pieces I had not photographed and added. Oh my!
Here is the latest, Tangerine, added today. I just love this color combination!

New Season

Well, it's yet another season of our lives!
Not long after I wrote the last post, let's say I get really tired. Really, really tired. I then lived in a tired  haze for quite some time made up of work, sinus headaches, soaking my feet and collapsing onto the couch.
We are having a little baby girl in November :).
So, needless to say my focus and what energy I had during the first trimester were not about beads. And then as my energy returned it was about getting through each work day and putting my legs up and resting when I got home.
I am now starting my third week home and not working as my legs would not handle eight hour shifts on them at a go. I am spending a lot of time organizing and cleaning, getting the baby's room ready and nesting.
But it also mean I have time and energy to bead! Yay!
My poor Etsy shop has been sorely neglected. I'm debating about finding a new street team on Etsy or waiting until after little girl shows herself and seeing how her days go first.
Either way, it's also a new season for my beading.
As yes, I have maternity leave and a bit of money with that, but not as much, I'm hoping to get back to selling a little more often and putting more efforts into that online I seem to have sold more in person over the last few years, but I have the time to try to advertise and such more now.
 It will also be a new season in that, since I'm not working right now not all the profits will go to missions. I will still have times where this is true though.
I have some pieces to photograph and listings to update, but mostly I'm excited to play with my beads again :)

I'm also excited to have time to look at other beady buddies blogs and get back into the beading community online :).

See you all soon!

"Just a little one"

Last month Little Girl Friend was over for a Christmas movie and I was working on a custom order. She strolled over and wanted to know "whatcha doin?" She then proceeded, with cute hand gestures to ask if I would make her"just a little one"(she said this a few times;)). She likes jewelery, princesses and being girly just a bit. And the fact that she constantly "ooohs" over my jewelery does not hurt either.
So I told her something like "oh, we'll have to see, sometime" planning to make her something for Christmas.
I really like what I came up with and the concept will be showing up soon in the shop, maybe even in "just a little one" size.
