What's New? Bead shows, 400th sale, OH my!

It has been quite a while since I have blogged about the new goodies in my etsy shop. And all the new things going on around the studio....

I am very excited to announce that I will have a table at the Berks Bead Bazaar in Reading on February 27th and 28th.

I am also super super excited that I will be sharing a booth at Bead Fest Philly in August with Jennifer Van Benschoten! WooHOO!!! I am so stinkin' excited!

What else??? I am only 5 sales away from my 400th Etsy sale in my ArtisanClay shop! WOW! This last 100 went really fast! As always I will be giving a Fabulous prize to the sweet customer who buys the item that brings my sale total to 400. Oh, how I love to pick fabulous prizes! Summer Hodgeman had a fun suggestion, and I am going to run with it--

My fabulous 400th sale prize will be something I made just for fun, that you cannot be bought in my etsy shop. Exactly what that is.... I certainly don't know yet ;-) I have 5 sales until I have to figure it out

Otherwise, I am working hard at working in wet clay, and my 30% off sale is still going strong. I am going to keep the sale going until I make a good bit of progress at paying off my husband's hospital bills. Funny how a couple of hours in the emergency room equals so many hours as a bead maker ;-) It's all good, I am glad he seems to be healing.
My brother bought his second business! Yay! He has now added Powdercoating to his Wet painting business. He does custom finishes for industry. Hospitals, military, lots of interesting stuff. He did a rollercoaster once for Disney World and then went for a ride when the ride opened. I have been helping him with the transition, since he is now running 2 businesses in 2 locations! Go get 'um big bro!
