Back on track and GREEN with envy

Hello friends!

I think I have survived the show whirl wind! It sure did take me awhile to get back on track. I think I still have a few things to finish. I am, however, back on track with my listings!

Today I have some GREEN for you!

First I have another Passion Heart in green and blue. This is made out of the lovely Bullseye and Bullseye odd lots :D I just love the gilttery glass :D
I just love all of the streaky odd lots too. You can see all of the color variation in the center raked heart :D

Next I have another button! This button has a green envious eye!

I really only have one picture of a piece made up using a button and that was the bracelet I just made for Melissa. I suppose I should get some more stuff made up with buttons to inspire you all :)

It has been awhile since I have had some doggie pics up so I have a few new ones for you!

Leeloo and Kayla's cousin came to visit with Ricky's parents! Meet Francesca aka Frankie!
Isn't she BEAUTIFUL! I can't believe how different she looks as an adult from what she looked like as a pup. She totally looks like her dad!

It was stormy the other night and Kayla found comfort hiding behind the papasan chair in our living room.
Awww...

Are you adventurous with your food? We are especially when they cut it open for you at Whole Foods and give you a taste! If you have not been to Whole Foods I would totally recommend it. They have the most wonderful things! All of the employees are super nice and the selection is amazing, not to mention all of the local items they carry :)Here are our fruits. On the left you can see Feijoa's from New Zealand. These fruits are picked by finding a somewhat soft fruit. You then cut them open and eat them skin and all. They have a somewhat grainy texture in part of it like a pear and taste somewhat like a kiwi. They are sour and delicious!

To the right are Passion Fruits. I am not sure where they grow these. You want to look for the exact opposite of what you would think! A ripe passion fruit is VERY wrinkly! To eat them you cut them in half and sip the seeds and pulp from the middle. Passion fruits are very sweet and juicy with a wonderous taste. I am not sure what they are closest to tastewise, but they are delicious!

Here is a Feijoa cut in half. You can just slice them up into small spears and eat them.

Here are the passion fruits cut open. You can sip them out of the center or eat them with a spoon.

Here is how we served the fruits. The passion fruit is very soft and can't really be cut into small servings so we just put them in Asian soup spoons :)

I got some really cool new things from Target the other day! I just looked to see if I could find the pics on target.com, but it turns out they don't have my items on there. I will just click a pic tomorrow. I was super excited cause I found things for my booth displays for $10 total! Woo hoo!

So what's on my agenda for today? Well I need to make a dragon fly bead for Sandy and some pet type pendants for the VCA vet hospital in Fort Collins.

Next I need to start figuring out where I will do my first travelling trunk show. Any ideas? If you suggest a store and they contact me to do a trunk show I will offer you some FABULOUS Genea Beads!

Well I should be on my way!

Have a fabulous day and STAY COOL(it's 97 degrees here today)!

Much love,

Genea
