Two New Grab Bags

Hi Everyone!
Closing out a supplies business is pretty daunting. So the grab bags help to give you a great deal on beads and me to well move things out. There are two new bags up for sale on my Beadwright etsy store. Grab bag three is fused and lampwork cabs, pendants, and beads. Some made by very well known glass artists. Grab bag four is all lampwork beads. No cabs or pendants. I will have more grab bags up this week.

A DAY AT THE BEACH

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday Mike and I took the day off just to spend time together. You know with no phones, email, or other interruptions. Just making memories. We drove south on 101 and went to some of our favorite places. The weather started out foggy, wet, and graaaaayyyyyyyyy. However, by noon the sun found us and the day was perfect. We gathered some great ocean treasures as well. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

NEW CABINET FOR MY LIVINGROOM

Hi Everyone!
Almost three years ago Mike and I sold our home in North Idaho and was well on our way back to the desert of AZ. Hmmmm... isn't it interesting how life doesn't always turn out the way you thought or hoped for? LOL! So we ended up here in Florence, OR. We now rent a house and at first it was very strange to RENT. The house is yours because you are paying for it, however, it really isn't yours. My thought was just put up a few nic nacs and call it a day. Over the months I have wanted a home again so we have put our stamp on this old house. Mike built a book self and then this fantastic cabinet to go over and in front of the non working fireplace. I am so happy with the way it turned out and now I can fill it up with all my favorite treasures. It doesn't take much to make me happy.

My Latest Piece

Hi Everyone!
For the last few months I have been designing things that look very Egyption to me. I would think that with all the excitement of going to Japan my beading would be more in that realm. I am sure there is a connection somewhere. So here is the latest necklace that I have finished up. Hope you enjoy the photos.

GRAB BAG TWO

Hi Everyone.

I am pretty excited about the closing out sale I have going in my Beadwright Artfire and Etsy stores. Excited that I can pass great deals onto you, and that I am finding treasures in the big tote boxes that have been packed away. OK so most of these treasure I am keeping, but the items I have listed are fantastic as are the prices. Last week I listed a seed bead grab bag. It went faster than I would have expected. So this week I have a bead grab bag. NO SEED BEADS. This bag is well over $100.00 and if I had to price each item out even with sale prices my guess would be closer to the $200.00 mark. So if you want some fun opening up a grab bag of beads from glass to wood then you must hurry over for this bag. $75.00 will get you a great bag of beads.

Have fun shopping my close out sale~~

WINGS OF A FEATHER OR BEAD??

Hi Everyone!
This morning I am getting ready to go to town. You know, the big city of Eugene, OR. However, before I leave I want to share with you some of the outstanding bead art of InaRea. She captures the spirit of the birds she beads and allows that spirit to flow. Here are a few words from InaRea

InaRae in a nutshell: You can contact InaRae here

I loved to play with colors and paint when I was a kid. This never changed, it just got more expansive.I still paint in acrylics, watercolor, pastels, mixed media and make beads and wall hangings in clay and polymer clay.I love glass and fibers and of course must consider myself a mixed media artist, as I don't want to give up any of it.If anyone has a good recipe for learning to focus, please share!I wind down in the evening by painting with beads. The owl and Phoenix are the results of this evening obsession. There are three more in the planning stage.

I Guess it is Fall??

Hi Everyone!
Living in Florence, OR. is a great place with great people. However, the weather here?????? Well as my daughter would say, "it sucks!" Fall is certainly here with our rain, wind, and dark cloudy days. So I guess my beading is reflecting that. This is a piece that took me longer than usual to finish because I kept changing the seed bead colors. Wheeeewwww finally done. There are nine tiers of flatwork with a size 15/0 seed bead frame. You can learn this technique in my book "FlatWork" Hope you enjoy the photos.

Bead A Day Calendar

Hi Everyone!

My life is so busy that this is the first chance I have had to post about this. A few weeks ago I received a copy of the Bead A Day Calendar. All I can say is WOW! 2010 calendar is an inspiration and a delight to go through. Come on you know we all go through the pages before the dates. LOL!! A huge thank you to Sharon Hessoun for her hard work to make this a great calendar. 2010 is filled with delightful and intriguing art, great projects, and the photo are terrific. There is a new addition of introducing bead societies and bead groups. Be sure to check out Oct 4, where you will find a photo of only a very few of the Florence Area Beaders "FAB" and a short bio. Thanks Sharon we all appreciate what you have done.

FAST WEEK FOR ME

Hi Everyone!

Wow this week went by so fast for me. Of course I was busy as ever, however, the days seem to blend into each other. Today should be a huge day at the Old Town Market, but as nature will have it, it is pouring rain. Not just the little OR. cost drizzle I mean straight down buckets of rain. So no market today. A good day to catch up on beading, relax, and just enjoy the day.

SMALL BEADS GONE AND BACK AGAIN

Hi Everyone!
I want to thank all of you who have purchased my seed beads. Going out of business is a strange ordeal. The thought of not ordering and packaging and selling beads has left me with sort of a loss. On the other hand more time to create art. As I go through large plastic bins of beads I can actually remember where they all came from. 15 years of selling beading supplies, where did the years go? So I found more size 15/o seed beads and they are listed in my Beadwright Artfire store. Be sure to look at the other beads listed as well all at very good prices. I will be listing more all month as I unpack, photo, and get them up.

After that the only beading supplies I will be selling are our Beadwright beading looms, "Looms by Mike", Nicole's BeadBacking, and the bead instructional books written by Nicole and our beading kits. So take advantage of these great prices. Head on over to Beadwright Etsy and Beadwright Artfire. I will tell you that I am listing most items on Artfire.
