Happy Summer and Happy 4th of July!

Wow! Summer's jammin' by. I hope you all are having a great one. Hope you are able to take some time to relax and enjoy your family. I've been spending time with my 5 year old grandson at the local pool. It's a blast. I can't help but think that these are days we don't get back. I try to make the most of them and savor every aspect. Hope you do too.

My husband and I went to Vegas the end of May and renewed our vows with Elvis! LOLOL! It was a hoot! And! I got to stay at the Bellagio which was beautiful! and!!! there was a jewelry show at the Mirage while we were there! Yes sirree I was in heaven. LOL! It was a great time and quite relaxing.

After I was home for 3 days it was off to Milwaukee and Bead and Button show. It was a blast! Saw lots of people and sold a bunch of kits! Ate good food and came home with cheese curds and summer sausage.

Later this month on the 25th I'll be in Rollinsville Colorado for a trunk show at Beyond Beadery. If you're in the neighborhood you really should drop by. It'll be a blast!

As you can tell, I'm having no problem keeping busy. I've been spending as much time as possible designing some new things. I have a bowl of new pieces that just need to be written up! So much fun! So many crystals! LOL!
I'm also working on a potential contest entry. I've never entered anything but I might just give it a try. Here are some pictures of the progress.

This is one of the most challenging pieces I have made. She seems to have a mind of her own and I have spent a lot of time just staring trying to see what she wants me to do. I'll show you more as she develops.

Buy the Kit is continuing to grow, adding new designers, designs, and patterns! It's fun to think of projects I could never kit but can still put out the pattern. We're looking forward to welcoming a couple more designers in the near future.

If you have a moment during these busy summer days, stop by and see whats new.

Wishin' you all the best!
