Have a FREE heart

Have a Heart

The new Design of the Month for February is all about FREE HEARTS PENDANTS...

Here's how it works-
-You must spend at least $25.00 or more (not including shipping)
-Offer is only good in my WEBSITE STORE (sorry, not in my etsy store)
-Free Hearts are only available for a short time (hopefully through February)
-There are no secret codes, no boxes to check, just place your order and you'll receive a free lampwork heart pendant when your beads/jewelry arrive!

In other news, this week the post office raised there rates...and raised them they did!
Some went up almost 100%, yes you heard me right 100%
Two places I send a lot of packages to are Canada & Germany. Both of those are now almost double the cost. I use to be surprised when it was cheaper to send a package to Canada, then back East in my own country. Well, those days are now over. I understand they needed to raise their prices, but this was quite a shock!

Warming up

Frosty Enjoying a little sun

It's been so chilly here this past week (chilly for California that is)
Kitty has been camped out on her heating pad, only getting off for food breaks.
This morning it warmed up, the fountain thawed and kitty ventured out back to bask in the sun...
I think I'm ready for Spring, how about you?

Hang in there


Did you make a new years resolution this year?
Some years I do, some I don't.
A good friend of mine made a big one. I know she can do it! It's going to be tough though...
So I made her one of my possums, to remind her to hang in there.

Happy 2013!

 photo4 photo3 
Christmas is now put away...which is always a little sad.
My time off was filled with a little relaxing, mixed with working on T-Rex on the coast.
Well, Kurt did most of the work, but I supervised...
The bathroom is now almost finished, then I'll be busy painting.

I also added lots of new beads to the shop today...


You can check them all out HERE.
