22 Manic Monday 10/14/13 (A Book for Beaders)


Today is Columbus Day in the US!  For us this is one of those really confusing holidays!  The banks and post offices are closed, but Wall Street and the schools are open?@?!  Very confusing!!  But, the good news is that with the kids at school I have more time to bead!  :)  Oh, I am so very bad!!  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



I thought I would start off the week with something of 'and old friend' - A Book for Beaders Give-A-Way!.  Who wants to enter to win this book?


Well, here is how!!  I made this one VERY simple and I hope that there are entries for everyone!!!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And now, for the big news!!!  Many of you already know, if you watch my Fan Page!  I have put some of my creations in a local shop - Blended Treasures!!  We are having our GRAND OPENING on Saturday 10/19/13.  I will be there to 'meet and great' everyone as well!! 

Also, I will be teaching classes - starting on October 25, 2013.  The first class will be Basic Stranding and will include all supplies needed to make a necklace, bracelet and 2 different types of earrings.  There will be a fee of $35.00 per person and the class size is limited to 8 people (13 and up).  Please email eleginoart@yahoo.com if you are interested or want to sign up!  

Here is what my set-up looks like, what do you think??



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Friday night I finished and listed this bracelet - some of you saw it and some of you didn't.  So, just because it is so very cute - I thought I'd show it off again!!


 And if you would like to watch the 'making of' video.... here you go!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And with the close of one project comes the start of a new one!!  I started this new FLASK design over the weekend 


......and I was able to finish the entire front.....


So now, comes the back (I'll start that today)....can you guess what it will be??  Remember that you can come over and watch it grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day !!


and remember, you can purchase your own CUSTOM DESIGNED flask in my studio - Custom Designed Custom Order Beadwoven Stainless Steel Flask.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I would like to leave you with this thought;

It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.

  5. I only realized today was Columbus Day because we didn't get any mail. LOL I was pretty sad too because I look forward to the mail every day!! But there's always tomorrow to find goodies :)

    I think that Monster High bracelet is just too cute and that flask is going to be seriously awesome!

    Oh, and as for the giveaway (you KNOW I'm going to enter it), I'm in love with your Green and Blue Delightful Necklace Set!

    I must say congratulations on having your gorgeous creations in an actual brick and mortar store front! That's SUPER exciting :) If I were in the area I'd definitely be there for the grand opening AND sign up for a class even if it was beginning stringing! Lol
