I made the Flower-cupish bead at center.
Staci bezeled a fossil for the bottom part of the focal. She's so super fancy!

I'm been a busy bead maker this past few weeks. My birthday sale was a much bigger success than I imagined it would be and so was my last trunk show and so I have been a very busy bead maker. I fired the kiln again yesterday and made a bunch of new disc beads for Heather Power's Bead Cruise. I also have my next Trunk show lined up in Kansas City, Missouri.... because I'm taking myself and my daughter's to Kansas City for Easter and why not schedule my next trunk show to be picked up in person??? Yes! Why the heck not?
Bead cruise and for my greedy little self!
Oh yeah! I get to go to the Berks Bead Bazaar in Reading this weekend with my girlie Staci and squeeze some hugs out of Joan Miller and Lisa Peters! Watch out ladies! I'm gonna get you! It's been too long!

This was the shipping situation this morning after some clean up. I always seem to spill over onto the floor as well.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I am sorry to be so Fast! It seems to be the way. If I'm not super fast blogging in a stolen minute, then I'm not blogging at all. I really wanted to add my studio post. I think this is my 3rd month in a row.
This post is for the Second Saturday State of your studio run by Marsha on the Beads-of-Clay blog.
You can play along too! You don't have to make clay beads to add your link to the blog!
While I'm talking about Beads-of-Clay---- there is going to be another Open Studio Blog event at the beginning of March. As usual, something will probably come up and I will have to pre-schedule my posts again, but.... look forward to all the participants holding special sales and giveaways! --- I will add a button to my blog, as soon as I can find a minute.
As for now, I'm off for a kindergarten Valentine's Day party! Sugar! Pink! Whoo Hoo!

Here's the sale part. Use coupon code 31YEARSYOUNG and get 31% off your purchase this weekend.
As long as things are selling, I will continue to trickle new items into my etsy shop over the course of the weekend. Quite a few people already noticed my sale and I thank you! If you want, you can purchase items through out the weekend and pay at the end.... I would like to mail any new orders out on Monday.

Thinking on a new project- don't know where I found the energy for all the scheming, but I'm happy for it.
Ideas, plans, talking with friends-- if it goes nowhere, so what! The scheming is dreamy, the doing is grand. I'm not in a rush. Enjoy
Planning a trip, too.
Spring is in the air, drip drop, thawing. I saw some fresh green in a moss today. The light is brighter.
Anyway-- I found this in the bottom of a warm kiln this morning.

The Bead Garden in Havertown, PA yesterday! What a great shop! I could not believe how much great inventory Leslie has in her store. There was lots of activity when I was there too! Fun place!
and lots of smokefire,
and hearts and pendants and cabochons of course!I wish I had better photos for you. My camera has been acting really poorly lately. It just hasn't been the same since my trip across the country last spring. I guess my next purchase will be a new camera, Do you have any suggestions for a good one? I would really love to know your experiences! I have really enjoyed my Nikon Coolpix for the past *cough* 7 or 8 years :-)
