New Work and Everything Has It's Place

Hello friends!

Just stopping in to say "hello" and then off I go to the studio! 

Maybe you saw that I was in Jewelry Stringing for Fall with these beads, right? WELL... you have to remember that magazines are like at least 6 months ahead. So I am actually OUT of this glass. It was an odd lot glass from 2006! I am super sad I didn't buy more when it came out, but that is how it goes. So if *anyone* has any they would like to trade for my beads or anything. MESSAGE ME! ;) eyedoglass(at)hotmail dot com.

I had worked on a replacement for the beads with another odd lot that was close to this one, but a bit more yellow. I will try to use that until that is gone as well. So again, if you have some of THAT glass and want to trade, MESSAGE ME!

You may have also seen the new Belle Armoire in which Staci's jewelry was featured. See my "Spiral Earth Stone" coin?! So yeah... I made more of that too, BUT... it has been out of stock for awhile and when ordering glass they were rationing it out with only a 1/4lb per order. That is like maybe 6 rods? So you can imagine how fast that glass goes. I am down to about 2 rods left so I will TRY to make more so that you call can buy them. 

Here is what came recently! Yay for glass orders!

Oh and I got some of this too! Yum!

I made all of these, BUT THEY SOLD OUT BEFORE I GOT THEM INTO THE SHOP! How flattering is that?! Thank you to those 2 amazing people, you know who you are!

Here is a look at them in a tray.
OH BABY! Look at those pretties! SOLD OUT! ALL on their way to a happy new home! 
Here is a view of the other side of the tray. ALSO, SOLD OUT! Except for a few hollows ;)
Did some more headpin experiments. These are also, SOLD OUT.
This one was my very favorite out of the bunch. I am sure you can see why. Sold out.
Also tried some of these XL size! Here is the front. SOLD OUT.
Here's the back! Wow look at all of that space to decorate!

I turned it into this.
Gorgeous huh?! 
Tried out a new XL coin.SOLD OUT.
Turned it into this! 

Also made this one. SOLD OUT!

These, well these are for ME. I have had a design in mind since BEAD FEST, and I just now got to make the beads. I had to order a few things so as soon as I get those I can FINALLY make this necklace!
This was my mess. UGH.. made me want to die a little on the inside. I HAD to go to the store and get something to fix this problem.
Ahhhhh. That is SO much better! I got a half book shelf, a scrapbooky creative shelf, and a tape dispenser. All were on sale at Michael's except for the book shelf, which I got at Walmart.
Here is a closer look at the shelf. AHHHHH.. see how everything has a happy little home?!

Oh and see the close-up here? Yep, I bought this whole shelf JUST so I could display my Wooly Wire like this! Yes, it is a sickness! I even strung all of this one before cleaning up that whole mess! Important things first, you know ;P

Moo had a sale, so I couldn't help myself. I needed mini cards anyways.

Here is a screen shot of a few of them. Rounded corners? You bet your ass! Look how AMAZEBALLS they are! :D

Oh and stickers? Don't mind if I do! 90 little canvas' of Genea Beads! So excited!!

and now? Off to the studio to make more beads so I can list before Ricky and I leave for Colorado on Wednesday! 

See you soon!

Lol thanks Emily! Thank you again! Me too! It was hard to let that one go! Me too! It's amazing how a cleaned up organized space frees the mind. I mean I am all for creative bead piles, but when crap is all over your floor, ugh! Lol is it? It's getting there! Our apartment is just now starting to look like our space. Thanks so much! Yeah, it's a great time to grab some cards when Moo has their sale! I just love their cards!! xo Genea
