I Made It Market


Hi everyone! I am having a really hard time getting back into the routine after my trip to Hilton Head! I had a majorly relaxing and fun time, and now I have to get myself back in gear! One way is to find out that I was selected to participate in the I Made It Market on Sunday at Bakery Square here in Pittsburgh! Come one out and see me if you like! If you mention you read it on my blog, I'll give you a 10% discount on anything you buy!

Has anyone ever done one of these markets? Any advice for me? I finally got my tent and ordered more business cards, I need a credit card reader and a banner now for my logo. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully I'll have some more beads listed today but for now, I have to go make some! I've been spending my beady time making a large custom order ~ thank you so much Karon! ~ and now I'll be making some for the etsy shop and market!

I like the square. Fits Iphone and most smart phones. Measure how you want your banner. My banner has so many eyelets on it that were not needed. Have fun!
Good Luck!!! I've never done anything like that, but sometimes working under pressure it the best way to do it :o)

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…
