Ornamentea and Destash Blog Hop

I got some goodies from Elaine Ray at Ornamentea. New colors! Love them!

 Man, I'm such a sucker for those little mostly-glazed tab beads. So cute.

I also got some waxed linen cord to play with. I've never tried it before.

Cool colors, huh!

Christmas Gift Swap Day #3 and #4

From Deborah

totally cute package!

a pincushion!

here is the back

And from Jodie

cute key chain and bead! There was a note pad too, but I took it to work this morning. And the packaging was cute, but I forgot and ripped the box open before photographing it. Impatient much? Yup!

Thanks, guys!!!

Destash Sale

Check out those beads. That there is my destash pile. It is A LOT of beads. (The Christmas cookies that snuck into the top left of the photo are not included)

So, I'm planning a destash sale in my Etsy shop starting January 7. And to commemorate the "out with the old, (in with the new beads)" mentality, I'm making it a shop/blog destash hop. Do you have beads you want to clean out too? Join me!

Just leave a comment saying you are interested, along with the address for where you want people to go during the hop - your shop or your blog.

Keep in mind this is for destashing jewelry supplies, although if you throw some yarn or fabric or whatever in there too I won't mind. Just make it mostly jewelry supplies, and we're good.

So, once more for the folks in the back.

1.  Destash hop is January 7

2.  Comment to tell me you want to join in and leave the address for your blog or shop

3.  I'll compile the list of destashers and provide it to you for your web site for January 7, or you can just send them to my blog that day because I'll have the list up.

4.  Hop is limited to 25 people.

Christmas Gift Swap Day #2

#2 is Jennifer from Jennifer Jangles!

Check out her cute package!

And the adorable ornament giftie! Thank you, Jennifer!

New Shoes and Holiday Gift Swap!

First, check out my new shoes (new + shoes = shews?)

Huh-llooooo purple laceless Chucks. I luvs you. I got them at Nordstroms Rack, and when I got home, I saw that I had two lefts! Utter dismay! But, my wonderful hubby went back (the shop was near his work) and found the box with two rights so I could complete my pair (and save the day for the next purple Chuck lover) Hoooray!

Also awesome is Lorelei's Holiday Gift Swap. 12 swappers exchanges gifties to be opened on the twelve days of Christmas. I was number five.

Here they all are lined up on my mantel making me go crazy with "I wanna open them" anticipation!

Lorelei was the first day. Check out her adorable button packaging!

And this cute button bracelet. Thank you Lorelei!

This is such fun!!

Bead Destash - Out With The Old

**fancy bead photo here**

Would anyone be interested in doing a bead destash shop/blog hop in early to mid January? Comment if you want in. I think it would be fun to see what destash beads everyone has for sale as a party, rather than just me!

New Facebook Page

I've been looking for a place to profile all the awesome stuff I'm lusting after on Etsy. This blog? Not quite the right spot. Another blog? Too much work. My facebook page? I suspect some of my friends are on Etsy overload.

How about a new Facebook page: Etsy Lust.

I'll be featuring an assortment of fab Etsy stuff, not just beads.

Go like it!

New Gardanne Beads!

Check out the enameled beads and HEADPINS *swoon* I got from Gardanne.

I love glass headpins So. Much. They make the cutest earrings.

Here are some earrings I made with headpins I bought from her before. To cute! And I love them with wood!
