My Favorite This Week

Filed under: Miscellaneous Stuff — Miss P @ 5:01 pm

Well, it’s been a busy day and somewhat frustrating. My IPhone got wiped clean somehow and I’ve spent hours and hours on the computer getting that straightened out and taking pictures.

Thought I’d just quickly share my favorite bead this week. There are still a bunch waiting patiently to be cored and photographed, but I LOVE this one!

Happy Anniversary!

We went down to Debbie and Tony’s house last night to help them celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Had a great time. Here’s a few pictures to show you the fun. Beadies will follow later today. No torchin today. It will be 100 degrees and there’s laundry to be done.

Jessica, Sarah and Dawn, Cousins Rock!


Dancing with your girlfriends is fun!


Aunt Debbie is fun!

The Unloveables

Filed under: Miscellaneous Stuff — Miss P @ 5:50 am

Every wonder what happens to all the beads I make that don’t sell? Well, here’s the basics. Beads are first listed on EBay as an auction or a BIN. For the most part, my beads are selling well, but over the last week or so, suddenly nothing is selling! Hmmmm, well, I’m working on figuring out why that is and trying to not let it discourage me.

So, what happens to all those beads that don’t sell? Well I don’t re-list them on EBay. Since I only ask $9.99 for them, it isn’t worthwhile to incur the EBay fees again so they are listed on Etsy. (

If unsuccessful there, I have a box of beads that holds all unsold beads. This box is toted around to all the little craft fairs I sign up for. My kids have also learned about this box and know that with a little push, I can be convinced to give these beads away.

My son has an arrangement with a local shop to display some of my beads for sale, but I haven’t gotten any of the proceeds back somehow (LOL).

And finally, my friend Gerri works with a group at the local golf course. They make Christmas gifts for the orphan children in our area. The beads are perfect for making jewelry for the “tweener” kids. Kids that are too old for toys but love hip jewelry!

Guess I’ll keep making beads 🙂

Old Farts Rock

Well, last night we went to see ZZTop. Oh my! Have you ever seen these guys perform? It’s hard to believe there are only 3 of them producing all that amazing sound. Did you know that they have been playing together for over 40 years?

Not much going on here. DH is off to Sturgis for a few days so it’s just me and my torch (weeeee!). Here’s a sneak peek at this week’s auctions.

Carlo Dona Tools Rock!

Well, the house is a complete mess ’cause we’re redoing the man-cave floors, but I found time to play with my new tools. Here’s a sneak peek for you.
