Here's Something New!

Whenever I have leftover beads, I like to make useful things out of them! I really like making the purse-clip-backpack-charm-zipper-pull things! You can be creative with leftovers - leftover spacers, beads, etc. Here's a photo of one I made from a leftover bead of mine, and some czech rondelles and a celtic charm. I really like the colors! Hope you do too - you'll be able to find them in my etsy shop pretty soon, for little holiday-gift-stocking-stuffers!

Have a great weekend! We are visiting my friend Beth and her family for dinner tonight - she has half a cow to eat, and we're bringing the pie and corn from the farmer's market! I can't wait to what else she's done to her house - right now I think they are working on their deck. They do it all by themselves, too! Busy Busy!

Oh yes, and I want to say good luck to all the people in Texas who are dealing with Hurricane Ike. I haven't seen too much on the news about it, yet, I'm sure we will later when people can finally figure out what's going on. We're thinking about you.

This is a very cool idea, Sue! Very nice - that should sell quite well in your shop.

Yes, indeed! We are all thinking about those that came into contact with Ike.

I've wanted to do things like this with my extra beads, thanks for the inspiration!
