Today it rained all day, did a little bit of beading, posted a few new pairs of earrings on etsy, and now am looking at what I bought at the last bead show. Do you ever buy stuff you love and then you get home and think , Now What? I bought a variety of briolette strands, different colors, and now I just keep looking at them trying to figure out what to make. At the time it seemed like such a good idea, a shopping frenzy. I think my brain is confused as to what to do. I will think of something.

Well I have to say that today was exciting. I came home from work and looked at my etsy shop. I had 6 sales. I went downstairs and yelled to my family that I had 6 new sales. I was so excited. It is such a good feeling to know that there are people out there who enjoy what I make. Etsy is so much fun, just seeing what others create is incredible. I have a dear friend who will be selling on etsy, I had to call her and tell her that she needs to hurry up.

This changes the subject. My daughter and I went tonight and saw the musical, The Color Purple, I wasn't sure of what to think. It was really fun, great music, very upbeat. I could stay on here and talk about all kinds of musicals but am hungry and really need to go eat something. I taped American Idol and now need to see who went home. This is tough. I really like Danny and Adam. We will have to see.

Open House

Well we had our open house. We had a good turn out and lots of food! It was fun to visit with old and new customers as well as friends. We always have a good time together visiting, getting new ideas and discussing what we are going to come up with next. We have decided that our beading is a sickness, we love it and cannot stop.

We also made it a point to make it to the gem show on Sunday so that we could buy more beads to add to our collection.

Recently we did a bead swap, we all brought beads to exchange and it went very well. If there are beaders out there who would like to be involved in bead swaps, send a comment. We really should have swaps every couple of months. It is fun to see what other designers do with beads you originally bought. It is also a great way to clean out your collections and make room for more!

We set up for our open house tonight, and wow, do we have a lot of jewelry. Anyone who lives near Prairie Village and loves beads should come by. We will be serving an assortment of Mexican food and margararita's. I will be taking pictures and will post them. It is nice to have three designers, I think that we compliment eachother well and get great ideas from eachother. We have 2 open houses a year and one event in the late summer.
