1 Tradistional Thursday 7/31/14 (M.O.M., $25 Certificate and Elephant's Growing)


What a week this has already been!! I have started a Give-A-Way, started a new bracelet and worked on promoting my Growing Krafty Max - KickStarter Campaign!!  And now, today, I am off to the Better Together MOM Conference! I will still be working on beading while I am there and I'll still be posting photos, but in-between I'll be meeting some amazing mom's and speakers!

Although this isn't NEW, it would be wonderful for that 'first day' back to school outfit....and the price...can't be beat!!

Have you been watching the elephants grow?  It is so fun to watch these patterns change with each photo.  I sometimes don't look at the 'big picture' when I am beading, but as I post each photo I SEE it!! :)  Please come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post 'working photos' throughout the day!




Don't worry, your entries are good on ANY of the forms....

2 What's New Wednesday 7/30/14 (Elephant, $25 Certificate and Bood Stone)


What's NEW??  Well, everything!! Life seem to just change everyone moment!! I spent yesterday beading on my elephant bracelet and getting things ready for the conference!! Why aren't there more hours in the day?  I am sure you understand.....it just never seems to be enough time to get everything I want to done!! And then I see something or touch a strand of beads....and more designs come to mind!! 

DO you ever feel overwhelmed with the all the creations/designs that are in your head? I used to keep a design book with me to jot down ideas, but I am not very good at drawing (no, I am REALLY BAD at it).  Now I just let them 'stew' in my brain!!


Just look at how far my elephant bracelet came along yesterday.   I have to tell you, watching them through 'your eyes' looks so different than the 1 bead at a time that I actually do!! Please come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post 'working photos' throughout the day!



Here is the give-a-way...so many entries and so much fun!! (Don't worry, if you enter at ANY of the forms they all go into the same place)



This is one of those simple, yet very 'romatic' type of necklaces.  Just look at all the colors it has - perfect for sunset,sunrise or just to match the new outfit!! Don't you think?

2 Talented Tuesday 7/29/14 (Give-A-Way, Elephant and Better Together - M.O.M.)


Well, it is Tuesday....yep, it sure is!! I have to tell you that as I look at the calendar and all the things we still have to do before school starts I am starting to get a little concerned!! 

Even my calendar is having concerns.....notice anything wrong?  Yep, it was trying to short me one day!! OOOOOOOPS!!


One because of the little bit of time and the other because of how excited I am to have the kids go back to school this year!!  I am not sure if I am being a good mom right now, but I CAN'T WAIT!!!! This summer has been so busy and so chaotic that I haven't been able to do the things I wanted to....so, when school starts, look out world, Krafty Max is on the way!! ;) 


Today I have decided to do a give-a-way.  I haven't done one in such a LONG TIME!!  I am very excited about this!! I hope that everyone enters and SHARES it with everyone else!!  Have FUN!!



Although this isn't a brand new listing, it brings out the FUN in people!!  I just love the way it turned out.  Some have said it looks like flowers, some say like a birds nest and others....just love it!!  What do you think??
