Oh my, what a great day yesterday was!! I was able to bead and enjoy the morning and then in the afternoon we loaded everyone up and headed to the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair!! What fun we had. My mother-in-law and I went around and saw the exhibits and great displays, hubby took the kids to the rides and 'played' for hours! I was able to take photos of my entries.... want to see?
Most of my enteries were put into the same display - but they were in different categories!!
Here is each one....
And there was also this one.....
WHOOOHOOOOO! I have to tell you that I am so very proud of how all my creations did!!!
Here is today's newest listing. It is one of those very unique necklace sets!!
I have been working on this one all weekend, I just LOVE the way it is turning out!! Just look at the front and back!! I'll be working on the strap today, please come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch it grow !!
Don't forget, my sales is still going on! Use code - VET2013 - to receive 20% OFF all items in my studio!! But, it ends tonight!!
I am not sure if I will continue to do a featured artist. I recently have been very burned by (not just one, but two) of my featured artists. One I had to actually file a claim through PayPal and get my money back when I purchased something from them. I don't always purchase from my featured artists, but sometimes I find things I just can't do without!
I have been doing this to expose my followers to other peoples art/crafts and to help those other artists get some exposure. I always notify the artist that they are featured and send them the links, however most of the time only about 1 out of every 7 even say thank you. Now, I don't expect much, but I would really 'put it out there' if someone featured me and say thank you a 'whole' bunch!!!
So, with all that being said, this week there will not be any featured artist and I am contiplating doing something a little different in its place. Your imput/suggestions on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
I would like to leave you with this thought today;
There is grace of kind listening, as well as grace of kind speaking.
