Freedom to Work

Happy 4th of July, Y'all!! To those of us in the U.S. of A. it's our Independence Day. For the rest of you, I imagine it's just another Thursday. I hope that whatever your day holds it's a good one. We're actually not doing much today but relaxing and enjoying some charred meat. (That's how we roll on the Fourth!) Of course, 'relaxing' is a loose term as I'm throwing in some work with it. I figured, what the hay, I've got some tasks to complete anyway.

First, I want to mention that the newest issue of the Creative Bead Chat Magazine (an online Glossi) is out and somehow I ended up in the Artisan Spotlight! MY NAME'S ON THE COVER!!
July 2013 Creative Bead Chat Magazine
The whole magazine is great and I highly recommend that you check it out. In fact, if you aren't already a member of the Artisan Whimsy community and/or of the Creative Bead Chat Facebook group that you go join right away!

There's also some 'new' items listed in the Etsy shop.
Simplicity Necklace
Unearthed Necklace (re-listed)

That's all I've got for today. Again, I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July!!


  1. Congrats on the Artisan Spotlight!!

  2. Oooooo I like the simplicity necklace! Hope you guys are having a happy fourth!!! :-)

  3. G- Thanks! That one was just one made to get some beads off my desk, but I think it turned out beautifully. It's way more simple than my usual style, but I am trying to simplify some. I hope your day was great, ours was LAZY. We kept waiting for it to rain.


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
