Still alive but not making beads

Hello everyone,

Yes I am still alive... I took a long leave from bead making because of a broken piece of equipment that I didn't afford to replace. That is why you haven't heard from me in such a long time. Meanwhile I decided (strongly encouraged by my husband who would love this new business to grow enough to give him a job to work with me) to go back to an old passion I had of making soap. So we launched the soap business. Actually it's been running for a couple of years, but on the internet it's bran new. You can visit the Etsy soap shop here:

You can also come read my new blog...  about my soap endeavour of course :) :

I miss making beads a lot though and still want to provide you with nice beads to look at in the (I hope) near future. :) I will eventually replace that piece of equipment, but for now I decided to clean my bead box and list some sets of beads in my Etsy shop:

Have fun browsing.

Etched Beads

Hello everyone,

It's been ages since I wrote on my blog, I know. Same thing with listing new beads. I've had a lot to do before and after Christmas and haven't made much beads. By the way, I wish everybody a wonderful New Year! Lots of love, peace and happiness and everything your heart desires. :)

One think that I made a while before Christmas, was a large bunch of etched beads. But I never had the time to list them. Well, here they are. I hope you can find some you like. Here is a picture of the different colors I have listed in my Etsy shop:

Getting really close to Christmas

It's December already! Can you believe it? Are you ready for Christmas yet? Guess what... I'm not... of course. But I am in the mood. :) So let's take a deep breath, feel the crisp air (it's raining today making all our beautiul snow melt away... but I'm not worried, we will get our fair share as usual this winter.) and roll our sleeves to get ready for the celebrations.

For all this month, shipping will be free on all the beads in my Etsy shop. So, buy all you want and you won't have to worry about shipping... at least... :)

Back at last

No I wasn't gone on another planet, I was just a looooong time away from my blog. Although sometimes I felt I was on another planet. I've had a hard time getting back to business and to «normal» life after this summer. Ellie was at home most of the time. I thought I could find time to work while she was here instead of day camp but I couldn't. She hates day camp and it was becoming a nightmare just preparing her to go in the mornings, so I told her we would try for this summer to keep her home while still working on my business. But I couldn't get organized or find 2 full hours to work in the day. As a result business was really slow and I got a bit discouraged.

I think I am getting back in the swing of things now so I will have new beads in the days to come. I did list some nice clearance beads in my Etsy shop so you can go have a look. You could find some pretty beads for a lower price.

Win Some Beads

Hey guys,

It's the last day of the Giveway. Don't forget you have a chance (and a really good chance) to win some of my beads or jewelry, along with tons of other wonderful handmade items. And it's even easier to qualify now. Chantilly has changed the rules slightly, and you don't have to leave a comment on each blog, just visit them and tell her which sponsors you can't get enough of. It's easy and it's fun. :)

Don't wait too long, it ends at 5pm Eastern time.

Good luck!
