The line-up {and destash}

Snowmen and Halloween Ornaments

Remember the Snowmen Ornament Kits I had last year?
This year I will be offering ornaments, complete and ready to hang.
I even added a few Scary Cats to the mix (love their surprised look) hehe

I'm in the process of cleaning the studio.
And my bead bowl (with extra beads) is getting pretty full.
Some are extras, some are wonky and some are just ugly! Ha
So it's time to DESTASH the extras at a GREAT price!
Once I have them strung and photographed,
I'll be placing them on my site, on the "destash" page.

Lampwork Skully Necklace

Last year I made these skully necklaces for a Halloween show I did, they sold out in about 15 minutes!
No kidding
So this year I'm making more, a lot more! 
But, if you can't make it to this years show, no worries...I'm also taking orders.
So if you too would like one, you can head over HERE to place an order.

Mini Me


I have been wanting one of these for a long time...
Eight weeks ago I bit the bullet and ordered one just the way I wanted it. As Kurt was looking over my list of "must haves" he says "don't you want a turbo?" which was not on my list. It just did not seem that important to me. But, he talked me into it. I'm SO GLAD HE's so F.U.N. zipping around town.
I'm going to drive it for a couple weeks before I hand it over to Kurt to customize it for me.

Plus, it's the perfect size for Molly!

Maybe I'll even learn how to do this, ha!

Here comes the Sun(flowers)

My Sunflowers are in full bloom. Such happy flowers don't you think?

I've had a few requests for my Dia de Muerto pieces that I shared a couple weeks ago...
So next week I'll try and have those photographed, so I can take a few orders.

Weekend plans? Trying to stay cool...
We may even break a new record high (from 1898) which I'm hoping we don't!
Here's to snow-cones and swimming!

I scream you scream

If you give a dog a cookie 

Molly's favorite cookies (dog treats) in the whole world are Peanut Butter Chewy Louie..
I'm not sure if it's the cookie part or the peanut butter, but she absolutely LOVES them!
If you give a dog a cookie

So when I found these "ice cream" filled Louie's, I knew I had to get them for her.
We haven't broke into the bag yet, but maybe today...
