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 …

October Art Elements Theme Challenge - Petroglyphs

I'm afraid I just didn't have the time to participate in last months theme, which was faerie. This month the theme is petroglyphs hosted by Karen Totten. Since I'm spending 10 days in Iceland this month, I really didn't get to spend any extended amount of time on the theme, but I did find these AWESOME petroglyph earring charms by Jill of Foxpaws on etsy! I highly recommend checking out her shop - every package you get is a gift in itself - TRUST ME!

SO here are the earrings I made!



I hope you also visit all the other participants! I'm sure there will be some awesome creations!
