Please Take My Poll

I need to get some business cards in the future; can you take my poll and tell me what you look for when you get someone's business card? Thanks!

Well, you know, it always depends on what you need the business cards for. Do you want to promote your beads with them? Then with photos of beads. Do you need them to hand out to a bank, business partners, that kind of thing? Then make them plainer and more serious.

i have 2 recommendations for business cards. Moo.com for Moo Cards- little photo cards are so cute and little.
OR
OvernightPrints.com- great prices, you can add photos or design your own, and you can have rounded corners, and glossy options.
It's pretty quick too.
Good luck!

I like the full color photo cards so I can get a sense of the flavor of the artist. (For excavation and plumbing, not so much). Easily legible but stylish font, full contact information. I know cards are available with pre-designed graphics, and if it was really cool it might tempt me to look at their shop, but not as much as a great photo. I got mine from Insty Prints, probably could have gotten them cheaper from Moo. That's the plan for the next box.

Just voted...and agree that I like photos on the card. Will help people remember your work/name. I put a link to who did my cards on my blog post today...Amy from Bean Sprout Studio, she's great (hey, you might win a free design on Jeanette's give away!). And I also like Overnight prints!

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 Theme of the Month - Seed Pods

The theme for July was seed pods, chosen by Jen. I made a Pinterest board for seed pods - I seem to be using Pinterest a little bit more lately, although it's such a time suck! Not sure how to get the image to appear, though, so you'll have to follow the link I guess!

I have made many headpins that look like seed pods, and wanted to make more, but just didn't have time to do it in glass.  Here are some photos of ones I have made in the past.

I really really wanted to get some done, but I didn't get to. What I did get to do was experiment a bit in polymer clay.  These beads were made using the "salt method". You roll the polymer in salt (not the super fine salt but a little bit bigger grain) and then bake it. When they are done baking, you rinse them off and the salt melts, and you get this impression in the clay that makes them look like seed pods! The top bead is just a pretty orange/ochre color that I highlighted…

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 …
