All things sweet...

The theme for today is... 'Things that are Sweet'!

The first sweet thing I would like to share is this new little beaded ornament!

It started out as a blue deer with a pink bow at her neck, but really she looks more like... Something else! lol A fox maybe?

The second sweet thing I want to share is this custom Ice Cream Cake Roll Necklace.

It is a custom polymer clay order that I just finished up today! No, it's not real at all... Well, it smells real, like chocolate cake and vanilla cream, but I don't suggest anyone actually try and eat it! ^_^ It was designed from a dessert found at a restaurant called The Chateau. I say 'yum' to that!

I haven't done any polymer clay items in quite a while. It has been fun to play around with it again after getting a couple of poly clay orders! But... I'm really anxious to get back to my precious seed beads! Hehe... I think they will always be my favorite!

As soon as this polymer clay lollipop order is finished drying, I plan on making a few little beaded jewelry items for my shop, since I've been doing the larger ornaments and barrettes lately. So, look for those next week!

I'll be going out of town tomorrow night, and most likely will not be back until late Sunday. So any orders, messages, etc. will be answered/filled as soon as I have time when I get back! I plan on bringing my laptop, so I may have a chance to check emails and convos while I'm there. I will get back to everyone as soon as I can though!

I hope you are all having a lovely week!

Better late than never...

Hehe... Right now it is almost 1:30AM! I'm sooo sleepy, but I feel like I'm wasting valuable time if I go to bed! lol I think about all the things I could be working on if I were awake! ^_^

And I have been so productive so far during my summer break!

Friday we went and saw Wolverine... OMG... Loved it! Then Saturday was DollyWood for a few hours in the evening. We had to get our passes updated for this year.

Then Sunday and today were spent working on hair barrettes!

Crowns, firecrackers, ice cream cones... I'm having a lot of fun with seed beads these days! I've started a list of the things I want to list in my shop each month. We'll see how that goes! :)

For now, I'm going to give in to my sleepiness, and go to bed!

I'm going to Disney World!

And this time a couple of friends are planning on going with me, so it will be a different sort of trip. I'm really excited about it! One of the girls, Cathy, has already been to WDW with me! We went on our Senior Trip together in 2001; one week at Disney's All Star Music Resort. We had a blast! Now we're going back, and (hopefully!) adding one more person to the fun!

I've been in such a Disney World mood lately... Watching WDW YouTube videos, staring at resort maps, drooling over restaurant menus, etc. It's a fun way to pass the time. lol

I also made a new item for my shop!
It's a small set of beaded MM ears that I have attached to a 2" barrette. This particular style is based on the old version of wedding/bridal ears that used to be available at Disney World. I'm also working on a version in the 'classic' colors - black ears with red and white bow. I'm [not so] patiently waiting on my black beads to get here so that I can start on those! I'll be sure to post when I finish the ears!

And... I only have 4 days of work left before summer break!!! I can't believe this year is over already! Time flies when you're having fun! *giggle*

And now I'm off to get ready and run some errands!

One of those random blog posts...

You know, I think I'm one of the few people around here who loves rainy days! I love sitting in my studio, looking out the window at the birds flying around, splashes of rain on their backs as they fly... There is something so comforting and peaceful about it!

I noticed as I was sitting here that I am nearing my 50th Etsy sale! You can bet that the person who snags the 50th sale is going to receive something special in their package! ^_^

Speaking of my Etsy shop... I've added a couple of things!

This fun 'Olive You' necklace:

And this beaded Minnie Snow Globe Ornament:

I also added a few supplies!

I have a couple of large orders right now, but when they are finished, you can bet I will have some new summer treats listed!

And speaking of summer... I only have 14 days of work left until summer break!

Now that's a happy thought!
