This Wednesday's Open Studio.....

will be a "Wild Wednesday!!!!" What does that mean? Cocktails & munchies!! Come on over to the Studio 49 on your way home from work for a little Happy Hour :) Yes--I will have some drinks for you virgin people out there! Starts at 4:30, and I've added an extra hour (ends at 7:30) for "Wild Wednesday"--so you'll have plenty of time to shop and drink and eat and maybe make a pair of these:Purchase the kit for just $3.00, and I will teach you how to do the stitch to make these super-cute earrings! I have lots of cute kit colors ready to go for you: The Peyote Earring project will go for the entire month of July if you can't make it this week, not to worry. We do have a limited supply of cocktails--so come early!

Busy weekend....

Saturday, I was at the Piedmont Farmer's Market with this huge display of focals: I sold several--thanks peeps :)

Saturday was also A's 3rd birthday:
He's getting so big:)

I've also been making some hearts:
Haven't tried those for a while! I think they came out pretty great, if I do say so myself :)

And some skully Pandora big-hole beads were created: Loving them! They fit right in with all my other skull stuff!

I guess that's about it. I do have lots of spacer sets in my Etsy shop if you're in the mood for those! And I will be at the Piedmont Market again this Saturday---come see me!!

I AM smiling....

This is the face I see when I ask Ayden to smile for the camera:He thinks this is smiling. You can understand, of course, why I don't take him to get his pictures professionally done these days :)

This one was taken at the zoo in Omaha today, as part of his b-day (Saturday the 19th) fun. I hope at least some of the pics this week have an actual smile from the boy.

On another note--I do have some nice little beads on sale in my Etsy shop today. Go check'em out!! ETSY
