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.

Remember that awesome pattern I listed a couple weeks ago? The ultraviolet purple tiger stripe cuff? The one that will get you noticed from across the room?
Well, if you haven't guessed already, it's now available as a finished cuff.
Don't have time to bead one up yourself? That's okay, here's the finished one. Don't know how to bead? That's cool too, here's the finished one for you.
Look at it! It's so amazing. I think I might have to make one for myself. I love it so much.
The metallic purple beads just jump out at you and grab your attention. They say, "look at me." Swoon! I know I'm a sucker for purple, but this is just out of this world cool.
The pattern is original and was designed in my small studio by moi. It's all hand beaded using the best quality Japanese glass seed beads, so it's made to last.
There is one available for instant purchase, so you should grab this up before it sells out.
The good news, once this one is gone, it will be available as a custom order. The plus side, you can let me know what size you need. The downside, it will take up to 4 weeks to ship. So if you need one now, I know you do, you need to order now!
And always, if you would like this in a different size or maybe a different color (blues would be cool), shot me a message and we can work together to make you the most perfect unique item ever!

I've been a busy girl lately getting some new products ready to be released just in time for Christmas shopping (join my Superstars Group to get first access to new products). I've also redesigned my branding. Which entails the new logo (you've already seen), new packaging, and new business cards (if you want to see them, head over to my Superstars Facebook Group).
I'm also working on releasing new patterns and the first new one is this bright and funky purple tiger stripe cuff. Look at it, it's amazing. It's perfect for anyone who likes to stand out from the crowd. It's great for your summer festival fashion or just being unique at work. Grab it while it's hot and bead up an amazing cuff this weekend. And if you would like a finished bracelet, shoot me an email and we can get you set up with a beautiful new bracelet.
Stay tuned, I have another pattern that will be out soon. My plan is to try and have five new patterns available this summer.

Last weekend we had our first camp fire of the season. Well, to be honest it was our second, but the first one only lasted a half an hour before we got rained out. So this was our official first one. One that we made s'mores and had a few adult beverages and the company of good friends.
We love hanging out in our backyard during the summer. Even though it's in the middle of the city, it's still filled with trees and plants (and wildlife). The best part, you don't hear the noise of the city. We are fairly close to the highway and you would never know it. It's our little retreat from a hard days work. Sitting on the deck watching LO play or hanging around the fire with friends. I love it. But enough about my personal life and my love of my backyard. Let's get to the important things.
Yay! I have been making a bunch of changes to my Facebook page and I have been having so much fun getting to know everyone. I love doing the daily question and seeing pics of fur babies. It's been so much fun, I decided to start a group so we could get to know each other on a more personal level. We'll be talking about all kinds of great things. Food, travel, art, business, family, and food. Did I already say food? There will be a lot of food talk from my end.
I'll also be offering group only deals. Things that only group members will have access to. As well as some "before anyone else" peeks at new products. I will also do some giveaways for members only.
Come join me and get in on the conversation. It's a small group now, but I know you'll help me grow and make it an awesome place to handout. Click the button below to join. There is a quick question you need to answer to join, but that's because I want to keep the spamy bots out.
Don't forget to also sign up for my email newsletter. You'll get awesome info and some email only deals (right now my readers get upgraded shipping until the end of the month). You'll also be entered to win this awesome pair of earrings. The winner will be announced, July 1st. So, what are you waiting for? Go sign up today!
I've been working my butt off on my new logo and working on re-branding my shop. I'm in love with it, I really am and I hope everyone else out there is as well. But all that work at a computer has really hampered the amount of actual artwork I make. I'm soooo glad I can take a break on my logo because I really missed just sitting down and working with some awesome beads.
Good news, I do have some new beadwork to share. All the computer work also included to new photos being edited. I have a whole stack of new goodies that I started working on before the whole logo thing began. Now I can finally post them and share them with all of you.
This one this week is a great bead embroidered brooch. I know it's not really brooch season, but I just love it so much, I couldn't wait to share it.
It's all hand embroidered with great matte turquoise colored beads, accented with some red. And of course that beautiful redstone marble bead that catches the eye. It's so lovely. It honestly makes me smile when I see it.
If you love it as much as I do, and I know you do, check it out in my shop.
Just a girl that loves to bead, take photos, and cuddle with her new baby and her pug.
