0 Talented Tuesday 10/21/14 (Wicked FairyTale, Jewelry Class and An Ear Cuff)


Today I get to introduce a new featured artist, show off some of my creations that I have already listed and show you what I am working on right now!!! Over all, this will be a great day!! Last night I was able to teach a few kids at my son's school about jewelry making!! Boy, was that fun!! Just look at what they made....



And next week we will start working with seed beads, a needle and thread!!  Yep, more fun to come!!


These are creations that I already have in my studio!! Did you know that there are currently 657 items listed in my ArtFire Studio??  WOW!!  So, what do you think of these??

*** And I can make these cuffs in any color you would like?? ***


So, did you watch this one grow yesterday?  Did you see it turn from a 'pile of beads' into the start of a really cute sunflower sun catcher?  Well, you can come on over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page; I post 'working photos' throughout the day!

 

I know I have asked for support before, and I can't promise I wont ask again, but if you can pledge - even $1 - it will help!! So far I haven't received any funding!! This site is so different than KickStarter.  With this site I will receive the money that is pledges, even if I don't hit my funding goal!!  So please, SHARE, COMMENT and FUND if you can!!

NOW IS THE TIME TO GET IN!! This guide is getting bigger by the day!! I am so surprised at the response I have gotten!! It will be such a FULL and wonderful GIFT guide - I expect it to double (or more) the views we received last year - 22,000+!!!

You can have your business card posted for only $5!!! There are still 1/2 page ($15), full page ($30) and 2 page ($50) ad spaces left!!!! Last year, we had over 2,200 views in 2 weeks!!! 

P.S. If you buy an add and then refer someone else to buy one you'll get an extra BUSINESS card listing!!! 


Just look at who my featured artist is; Tara Marks, owner/designer for Wicked FairyTale!!  This amazing artist not only designs these 'little dragons', but she also names and builds an entire story for them!!!  Then, once they are done she is able to actually use her second love - photography - to make them beautiful and ready to sale!! 

Self taught and an artist in one fashion or another for most all of her life, it is easy to see that each of her creations has a little bit her her heart in it.  I have been following her for a while and I have to say that I really love watching her release her new creations.  I usually get 'sucked up' into the story and it instantly gives me a great visual of the dragons life!! 

Here are just a few - to get you started - but you'll need to come back tomorrow to find out more about HOW she creates these amazing dragons and more about the artist herself!

0 Making Monday 10/20/14 (SunCatcher, GoFundMe and New Creation)


What a weekend!!! It was a great one again!!! We had LOTS of family time and we even were able to spend some time doing crafty 'stuff'!! Monster got to build his first model car.....yes, it was a 'snap together', but it was done by him!!!  I helped read directions and 'line up' the parts, but the rest he did!! Just look at that proud smile!


And while we were 'out and about' we saw some little ducks out for a walk!! These hatched VERY late in the season!! Most of the other chicks we have seen are now just about as big as the adults....but, they were just to cute to not take a photo of!! 


I hope that you had a great weekend...feel free to post photos or comments about what you did!!

 
 I am not sure if you saw both of these finished or not, but here they are!! I just love the way the suncatcher / wall art turned out!! It will fit into just about anyone's decor!!

4 Frivolous Friday 10/17/14 (Gas Prices, Breat Cancer Awareness and Adding Sparkles to the World)


It is FRIDAY!!! I am so excited about everything going on, but I am also looking forward to the weekend!!  That always means times away from the beads and time with the kids!!

Here is a quick funny that is not so funny!!! Many MANY years ago I worked at a gas station and I being the assistant manager I was able to change the gas prices...WHEN the new gas came in (once a week or so).  Now the gas prices change from hour to hour!! YEP!  Here is the gas price at 830am yesterday when I got gas.....
 

It was a great price at $2.97!!! I was so happy to get gas at that price!! But then, about an hour later I drove by the same station and the price has jumped to $2.95.  REALLY???  The gas in the tanks when down $.02 in a hour!?!?  I think that the gas should stay at the price it is until the next delivery...yes, this ONE time it was in our favor, but usually is isn't!! How much is gas in your area??




No, I still haven't gotten photos of the teal and red, but I just can't find a strap that I like yet!!  But, I thought I would show off just some of by Breast Cancer Awareness creations.
