Welcome OCTOBER!

I LOVE Autumn! Except for the adjustment for the earlier days. But other than that, it's always been a great time of year. Maybe because it's my birthday month or the beautiful fall colors (not that we see that much of that in So. Cal.) or the fun of Halloween. (in my top three fav holidays!) Or maybe since it is the beginning of a hectic season, it's like getting ready for a really busy day! What ever the reason, I do like it and I also really like make Halloween beads! It is the only holiday I enjoy making lots of beads for. In fact I have a large Halloween necklace that is made up from my beads as well as a friend and fellow SCFS buddy, Julie Carlton's beads, that I have now dubbed as my official Halloween costume! It's much easier to put on a black turtle neck with a fancy beaded necklace than put all that goopy make up on...right?? Well here are a few Halloween beadies I still have available. Click on the BIG Spider candy corn for more info and pricing!


BTW, my next bead show is on October 29th at the
L. A Bead Society Bead Bazaar in Culver City. Hope to see you there!

and yet another frog auction...all over now, but....

These were auctions on eBay. Darling Trixie, the cutie on the right, sold. But Olive is still available. I decided not to re-list her on the bay, so if you like her, she is available through the website. Just shoot me an email!

past eBay auction...

I can't believe it myself, but I have an auction on eBay!

I meant to have this link up much sooner, but I couldn't access my server from Tucson. I have had many questions about more frog beads....let's just say...coming SOON!

Home from Tucson

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and said hello in Tucson! It was a fun show with lots of GREAT artists! I'm looking forward to going back in February!

Tucson, here I come!

Today was the last day on the torch for a while. I have to string, price and pack tomorrow and then it is on my way to the desert! I haven't been to Tucson for a while and I am really looking forward to it for a couple of reasons. I am very excited to be a part of the Fall Tucson Best Bead show. I will be in booth # 73, if that helps, look for the fish balloons! What's fun for me is my Mom lives in Tucson, so I get to spend the weekend with her along with my sister, Lisa, who will be flying in to visit and help me. Lots of new fishes, frogs and fun Halloween beads! Please stop by and say hello!

End of the summer and enjoying every moment!

Hope your Labor Day weekend was full of fun and sun and good food! Last week, Roger went fishing with his buddy, Bob, and caught this beauty! It was his first Dorado and he was thrilled! He also brought in a yellowtail and Bob got a couple too! I was very happy for him. We enjoyed Bob's fish tacos friday night and mahi mahi with a honey wasabi sauce on saturday. Sunday we feasted on lobster and tri tip at another friends house...not a bad weekend menu! Although I was back at the gym first thing this morning!
