Book Review - Lost On Plant China

Last week, I had the great fortune to have the time to read four books (!) and this was one of them. My friend Jill and I have read all three of his books (J. Maarten Troost) - they are quite funny! I have to say, while I laughed the entire time I was reading this book, it really reinforced my idea that I really have no interest whatsoever to travel to Planet China. My boyfriend/partner travels a lot in his line of work, and I get to go along with him if my schedule and wonderful parents allow (paying my own way of course, for you know who you are). I have been to some great places, and he knows that someday, he will have to go to China - but I think when that trip comes around, I will just say no! I feel I'm a pretty competent traveler these days, and while he is busy working or professing, I spend quite a bit of time alone sightseeing, etc. I don't think I have the inner fortitude to handle China alone for a day! This was, as I said, a great book, and you should definitely read it. You'll get a great insight for what is Planet China, but you'll also laugh your way through the entire book, when you're not shaking your head...

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
