New Rustic Etched and Pitted lampwork Beads

Fun new Rustic Beads. They have different colors of reduction frit and powder rolled in baking soda then etched for the matte finish. The next set is Raku frit and silver foil and lots of clear. Looks like boro glass. Had a fun week-end. Was in a show 2 hours from home. Cute town I was surprised at how many people were there. One couple was 4 hours from there home but come every year for this show. Even had one person buy 140.00 of beads. I just started to bring bead sets to my shows. If your a bead maker do you sell beads at shows or Jewelry with your beads? Would love to know.

Can't believe I forgot a box for the show

My DH helped me put up an my booth an then I had to tell him we forgot a box that has all the custom table covers and the risers cash box and my sign. He took me into a town we didn't know how to get around and found a table cloth,shower curtain and black sheets at a Ross store. That was after going to 3 other stores. I didn't want to spend a lot on something I have. Hope the rest of the week-end show goes better. I think my Dh needs a little loving for all the help he did today. Its not everyday we stay in a nice Motel.

New beads and a long over due Hello

I have been very busy and will not stop until August. I did a last minute show on the 4th more like Town Parade. I did quite well, It help's when your the only Jewelry and Bead vender. I walk in the Relay for Life this week-end and have a show the following week-end. A Party out of town again on the 30th. My Grandkids were up for a few days that was fun, they are all getting so grown up.
     I am going to have my reconstruction surgery done over. After my 3rd opinion with Doctors we agree there can be improvement. I get to enjoy my summer this wont happen until November.
     In August I hope to get more beads on Etsy more blog time with new designs. I don't know how you guys do it with working full time raising children and your able to Blog, FB, and run a store. I don't work and can't seem to find the time.

    Well some pretty beads. These have gorgeous colors. Believe it or not  both sets are made with the same glass one with more clear.
