Quinlan Glass Love!

Today's mail brought in two sets of absolutely drop-dead gorgeous lampwork beads from Jennifer Powers of Quinlan Glass. I bought sets called Moroccan Spice and Norse Goddess. I am so excited and looking forward to working with both sets!

Friday The 13th - My Lucky Day!

Friday the 13th usually go pretty well for me and this past one was no exception.

The most fantabulous to happen was my tax refund was deposited - yea for money!!!

Some of the money was earmarked for booth display improvements. Last night I bought a couple of new black&white display pieces of Ebay. I need more necklace displays since my stuff looks better hanging as if worn rather than just dangling from a rod. I've also made quite a few rings and they just don't get displayed properly on the hands I currently have, so ring displays are also on their way. I had thought about investing in a new folding table, one a bit higher. However last night we were next to some gals with a great idea - they put their regular folding table up on bed risers! I use bed risers on my bed here at home but never ever thought about using them on my table! Doh! So today I'm pricing wooden block bed risers. I also need to stop by local beadstore for some 6lb Fireline.

Last night I vending at the monthly street fair, FridayFest. Beautiful weather! We hardly broke a sweat setting up but was comfortable in my 3/4 sleeve t-shirt and capris through out the night. Only sold two things but made my vending fee plus so I'm ok with it.

I really need to get on the ball and finish the new pieces that are in works. Plus I need to plan more for upcoming seasons and holidays. I should have had some heart jewelry out for Valentines. I need to get my Halloween and Christmas stuff done sooner, etc.

I'll be vending at an upcoming bellydance show in April so really need some new pieces for then. My plan is start working on the various focal beads and pendants I've been accumulating. I have enough to supply me for the upcoming year LOL

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
