Wow, I love typing "OCTOBER". It is , hands down, my favourite month ... coloured leaves, pumpkins, apples, soups & stews, crisp air, my birthday, Thanksgiving, Hallowe'en ... simply the best !!
Lots of new things this week ... and a challenge !
* UNICORN BEADS ARE HERE !!!
These are the fabulous borosilicate beads made in California that seem to almost glow with an inner light. They are gorgeous. And , yes, they are a bit pricier than other beads ( not too bad though, ranging from .60-2.80 per bead) but they are show stoppers !! Buy just a few, add a few crystals, some other glass beads, and you have an amazing piece of jewelry !
This is the bracelet I made last year with Unicorn yo-yos and drops. The photo doesn't really do it justice.
Here are a few examples of the new styles & colours.
* SNOWMEN & TREE EARRINGS
I have many more Christmas Tree Earring & Pendant kits in even more colours. And, thank you for your patience ..., SNOWMAN EARRINGS in several styles and sizes including all crystal or a mix of pearl and crystals. I have quite a few but sold out in 2 days last week so you should probably hurry . ( or call or leave a comment with contact info ...)
* More new Christmas stock ...
Making Memories Mistletoe Series - I have more of this beautiful paper, acetate flocked 12x12 sheets, stickers, keys, rub-ons, journaling stickers, button flowers, masking tape, ... so much !!

Big or small, card, tag, bracelet, scrapbook page, WHATEVER ... just SOMETHING EVERY DAY. That way I will get back in the CREATIVE GROOVE .. I can't wait. I will post photos of what I do and hope that you will join me. Challenge yourself and then leave comments on this blog to tell everyone how you are doing. maybe I can even get photos from some of you. It should be fun ... and productive !!
