Wouldn't You Know!

This past weekend, my daughter came down with food poisoning from eating chicken at the zoo. She feels a lot better but I am curious - should I call them and tell them - what do you readers think? Based on the symptoms, we think it was a case of an employee coughing or sneezing on the food, or touching it after coughing or sneezing on their hands. This, to me, is gross, and makes me think about all the times we eat out - how many times could we get sick from a restaurant worker doing that? Makes me sick!

On another topic, the kids went to the Scarehouse this weekend. For her birthday, my daughter wanted tickets to this haunted house because the "Ghosthunters" were going to be there, signing autographs. Poor thing got sick while she was there, but some nice person in charge let her ahead of the line to get her pictures and autographs before I picked her up. They had a great time!

The sale on my web site is over - thanks to everyone who ordered beads - but I'll give you a heads up. Probably on October 15th or so, I'm going to start offering free regular first class shipping for the remainder of October. It's really tough keeping up with this economy, so hopefully this will help some of you decide to buy some beads for your holiday gifts, or yourself, and help me at the same time!

Up above is a picture and link of a bead that's up on ebay right now - click on it, you know you want to!!!!

Oh wow Sue, that's a tough one. Mark & I ended up with food poisening after eating chicken I cooked one night that we bought from Frys (years ago) that same day. It didn't even smell bad, but whoa, that was the WORST and it took me a very long time to eat chicken.

Hope your sale goes well!

Oops! Forgot to mention that I would at least call the zoo and let them know what happened.

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
