Life has been a little overwhelming for me as of late. I'm trying hard to get a new collection together and launch soon (it will launch in my private group soon, stop on over and join). And life has thrown a barrage of curve balls my way, which are making it difficult to focus on the new collection and anything else right now. And sometimes when that happens you just have to treat yourself. You have to do something for yourself. Some go to a spa, some go on vacation, some read a good book, some do a little shopping, and some treat themselves to a fancy meal. I bead. I love beading. It's my thing (okay so is food and travel, but you get the idea).
So I took a break from everything and made myself something. Something I've wanted to work on for a while and something I knew I would love. I made myself a T-Rex skull necklace. And I'm going to tell you, I love it. I feel so happy when I wear it. I know it's not for everyone, but it's right up my alley. I'm so happy I took the time for myself and made myself something special.
Everyone should do that sometimes. Just set everything aside for a bit and spend sometime on yourself. You are worth it. Do something you love, no matter what it is. And don't let anyone tell you differently.
Time is running out to enter August's giveaway! Less than 40 hours left to enter, what are you waiting for!
If you know me, you know I love flowers. I'm absolutely terrible at growing them, but I love looking at them. I love having fresh cut flowers around the house, I'm going to kill them anyway, so I'm not that sad they won't last forever. So because I love flowers so much (I really do love them), I've started a line of flower themed beaded cuffs. I've started with my favorite flowers, lilies. Calla lilies are officially my absolute favorite flower, but tiger lilies are a close second, a very close second. I've made a tiger lily cuff before, but thought it was time to update it and offer it as a pattern.
I have a number of other flowers planned and I'm working on getting those done and ready to go (as long as I don't get distracted by other ideas). Hop on over to my private Superstars group if you would like to know before anyone else when they are ready.
If you would like to pick up this pattern, it's available in my Etsy shop right now! It will be available as a finished cuff soon, but it you have to have it before anyone else, shoot me a message and we'll work something out.
I'm now on Snapchat and I would love it if you would add me.
August giveaway. Win this amazing beaded cuff!
This beautiful orange and white beaded cuff could be yours. It's the perfect bracelet to celebrate the last days of summer and than transition perfectly into fall.
It's all hand beaded by me in my small studio using little glass seed beads. The beads are on a leather cuff that is finished with a corset style lace up closure so it will fit all wrist types.
