Big SALE in my shop!

I want you all to know that I have a sale going on in my Etsy shop. Until the end of December I offer free shipping and an additional 15% discount on all orders. Yay! The sale is also effective if you buy beads from the Specials page of my website.

If you buy on Etsy only, just pay as usual and I will refund the 15% through Paypal. If you want to combine your purchase with beads from my website, just tell me which ones you want and I will send you a Paypal invoice.

I haven't listed new beads lately since my oxygen concentrator is broken again. I should have it back soon, so new beads will come eventually. I can't wait! I haven't touched my torch in about 3 weeks (really bad timing with Christmas coming). But I keep occupied. I've been making soaps for Christmas gifts. I used to make soap 10 years ago and I'm renewing the experience and having lots of fun. :)

Double the pleasure

I've been making red, white and green beads for Christmas and some of them have been featured in two treasuries! I bet the curators are friends. ;) Thanks girls.

New Beads

I just listed new beads in the specials page of my website. I've got to run, my daughter is arriving from school in a minute. Will check emails once in a while to see if anyone can't live without some of the beads. :)

First sale

Hey, my man has made his first sale! He does photography whenever he can and features and sells them on Red Bubble . He got a degree in photography at the university a long while ago, but finally took another route in information technology and management. After many years of putting photography aside, he came back to his first love, for the pleasure of it and as a way to fulfill his life a little more. He sold 4 calendars today, congratulations Honey! It might be a start to a new, long career for you. :)

New Beads

I'm having fun with the button press again. It had been a while since I used it. I just listed one set of beads on Etsy with this shape, but I plan on listing more in the days to come. I also had some requests for focals, so look for them soon in my Etsy shop. In the meantime, take a look at some of my recent favorites. :)

My beads are featured in a beautiful treasury by LilithEvy. Come visit her shop and her blog. Thanks Eve!

And come see the new beads I have listed lately on Etsy. I've made some classic black and white beads and combinations of ivory/black and pale yellow/black.

New Beads on my website

Finally some new beads on my website. I cleaned the bead bowl and assembled a few sets of beads on clearance in my specials page. If you want any of them just send me an email to tell me, and if they are available I will send you a Paypal invoice.

Talk to you later. Cheers!

I also want to thank...

Mary Jane Dodd, Mairedodd on Etsy. She does beautiful jewelry. So many of her pieces I would love to own. Her blog is inspiring and everytime she uses one or more of my beads, she mentions it in her blog. Thank you so much Mary Jane. Here are some of her creations:

So flattered

Some of my beads are featured in a great blog by Eve of LilithEvy, a Quebec city artist who sells cute and colorful boxes, beads and other items made of paper and fabric on Etsy. Check her blog and her shop. Thanks so much Eve.

Here are the beads that are featured:

Yes! It works.

My concentrator is woking today. Howcome? I don't know. I didn't do a thing to it. I know that I have to change the filters and that it's an oooold machine. I guess it's a warning that I may have to replace it in the near future. Got to get prepared.

I also wanted to tell you that I listed a few sets of beads on my Specials page on my website. So if you would like a bargain on some pretty beads, come take a look.

Have a great Wednesday!

Out of order

Not me, but the oxygen concentrator I use to make beads. :( And it happened the same day I received a big batch of new glass, including some colors I was really eager to have fun with. Grrrr...

And I'm really not out of orders, I have tons of them. Hope I can fix that machine soon.

In the meantime I can look at all these colors and dream of new designs... while cleaning the studio. And you can visit my Etsy shop to see what is new. :)

Playing with color

Sometimes, you just feel like playing with one color. Yesterday, I chose a solid dark sky blue and added just a little raku for details. Here are a few of them that I listed on Etsy today. I wondered a bit about etching them - I'm sure they would have turned out great - but I will let you decide if you want them shiny or satiny. :)

I'm back!

Thanks to everyone who have participated in my great "Cleaning the shop" sale on Etsy. Well, I'm back with new beads and I will list new beads regularly to fill the shop again with goodies. Feel free to empty it as I go, I won't mind. ;)
I'm leaving some of the jewelry in the shop so that it won't look too empty in there, but I'm thinking of starting a new shop for jewelry only. But I also might see if I can place them in a boutique in Quebec. Autumn is a great time for planning projects, and ideas are flowing these days to expand my business a little.

Here is a set I've listed today and I have spacers to match it:

Let's clean the place

Well, I've decided I want to clear my Etsy shop to hopefully have all new beads in it eventually. So for the first time ever (and I hope the last), I will have a 50% discount sale. Yep, 50%! Unbelievable! When does it end, you might ask? I don't know. Maybe a couple of days, or until the shop is clean. :)

I just listed a few new sets also, so come check them out and I hope you find something you like.

Take care,

1st day of school

It's been a long time since you have heard from me. I've had my daughter at home a lot this summer during the day and especially the last two weeks, as day camp was over. Boy, do kids keep us occupied. :) But, today is the first day of school, and we are both ecstatic. She gets to take the bus again, start a new year (she loves shool) and see all her friends again. I get to work full time on my beadmaking again and I couldn't wait. :) So to celebrate and also make place for new beads, I offer a 25% discount on all the items in my Etsy shop. Yay! You can buy as usual and I will refund the difference through Paypal.

Take care,

Here they are

Here are the beads I told you about this morning...

Thanks for looking and don't forget about the sale (see the previous post). :)

Summer Sale

Yes, another Summer sale!

I have a 25% sale going on all weekend on all the items in my Etsy shop. Refund will be sent via paypal.

Does this refect the economy..., maybe. It's also Summer, a great time to relax but not to sell. :) So, take advantage of it before Autumn arrives or before the economy starts to roll again. ;)

I will also list some pretty new beads sometime this afternoon in my Etsy shop. They are small button shaped beads. I'll show them to you when they are listed. So come back later.

Have a great Saturday!

New and Old

I listed a great set of beads on Etsy in Fall colors, hope you will like them. :)

I also listed a set of onesies. I've had requests for sets of beads in different colors and designs by customers who like to work with only one or a few beads in their creations. They are at a great price, only $3.00 a bead.

Summer Beads and Autumn Beads

Boy, have we been busy. And we had friends over almost every day. That is what Summer evenings are for actually. :) The house was particularly full on August 3rd since it was my birthday. Don't ask me my age... I'm trying to forget it myself. But I feel great, and if I don't look too closely in the mirror (I don't see too well up close anyway...) I can fool myself into being 10 years younger. ;)

I have a few beads listed on Etsy today. Some Summer beads, because I don't want to go into Autumn too fast, and some Autumn beads, because it's just around the corner. And I will try to list regularly on eBay also. I'm moving some sets from Etsy now (so you might get some of the beads you liked at a lower price) but I will have new sets there in the days to come.

Be well and have a lovely Summer.

I love garnet

I made a bracelet with a set of beads in those colors for my jewelry show and it was the first one to sell. I think I could have sold it twice. Love those colors. :)

See it on Etsy.

Sand and Sea

I listed new beads on Etsy in one of my favorite color combination. Although I have many favorites, this one makes me think of sand and sea. I'm going to miss my trip to Maine this year. It seems we won't be able to go. My husband is starting a new job, and he probably won't
have a vacation before next year. Maybe we can take a couple of days off and a weekend so we can go anyway for a short stay. I'm working on convincing him. :)

New Beads on my Website

I have another promotion. I guess summer is a good time for promotions. :) I will offer free shipping on all purchases until the end of July and an additional 10% discount if you are on my mailing list on my website. If you are not on my mailing list and want to join, just send me an email to tell me.

I sorted beads in my bead box today and assembled a few sets that I am selling on my specials page on my website. I have these and a few more. Go take a look.

Back from the flood

The jewelry show was nice as usual. Nice place, nice people and beautiful art. I came back with lots of ideads to create new stuff, but not too many sales. It was an outdoor show and it rained,... no it poured, the first 2 days and it was terribly cold for a summer weekend. The third day was gray, withought rain, but the grass was so wet that many visitors passed by almost without stopping, watching their nice shoes getting soaked. :(

I'm just thankful I didn't catch a cold, especially since I had a karate exam a few days after. :)

On the bead front, I have a few nice focals to show you that are on sale in my Etsy shop as well as many small sets of beads.

Jewelry show

July already! I have a jewelry show this weekend in Quebec. I've been working like crazy preparing for it, so that is why you haven't heard from me in a while.

I will close the Etsy shop for 3 days from Friday July 3 through Sunday July 5. So if you are interested in some of the beads I have in my shop right now, you'd better buy them today or you will have to wait until Monday, and there might be less beads to buy since I will be using some of them for my show. ;)

New Beads

Thanks to everyone who participated in my 2 Years on Etsy Celebration Sale. I decided to celebrate the beginning of Summer by offering free shipping until the end of June. :)

I have new beads on Etsy today and on my specials page on my website also. Fun beads for the 4th of July. :)

New focals

I have a couple of new focals on Etsy and I should have more soon. Hope you like them.

Have a great day!

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Beautiful day,

It's such a beautiful day today, it's hard to refrain from running after the butterflies outside instead of working inside in the basement. But I really have to be at the torch. I'm really tempted to take all the equipment on the porch and give it a try outside. But I think the wind would blow my flame and would make my beads crack. Oh well... :) If any if my fellow beadmakers have tried it, tell me how it went.

I didn't have access to internet for most of the day yesterday, so there was no post. But three days in four is not bad I think. :)

I want to work on focals in the next few day (as well as my custom orders of course). I have a show coming soon and pendants were my best sellers. I will probably offer many of them to you first in my different shops, so if you want any, I'll make others for myself.

Don't forget my GREAT SALE. Details in the previous posts. I only have 3 so it shouldn't be too difficult to find it. ;)

Have a great day.

An all week celebration

I decided to extand my 2 years on Etsy celebration sale all week!!! So it will end Sunday June 21 at midnight Eastern time. Look for the details of the sale in yesterday's post.

I'm extending the sale because:

First of all, some of you don't do internet surfing during the weekends, so you couldn't take advantage of the sale. :(

Second, I also want to celebrate the opening of my blog. Yay!

Third, I have to pay for my daughter's Summer camp (shouldn't mention this one, should I ? :) )

And last... I have my first follower to my blog! Thanks so much Lisa! I will send you a little something from my bead box. :)

As stated in yesterday's post, I will give you an additional 10% on all purchases from my shops (no minimum) if you just tell me you saw the information on my super blog. So... this means that if you are preparing for a bead show and need lots of beads, or want to stock for the whole year, or if you just love my beads and want lots of them just for yourself, you could buy $200.00 worth or more of my beads and get 30% off and free shipping. That is something to think about... You have the whole week to think about it, but don't wait to long in case they all fly away to new homes. :)

Take care and have fun shopping!

Until Sunday the 14th at midnight, I will give you free shipping on every purchase. I will also give you a 10% discount on all purchases over $100.00 and 20% on purchases over $200.00. You can combine purchases from my Etsy shop, my specials page on my website and my Artfire shop. Wait until I send you a revised invoice before paying for your order.
