Hot Weather and New Year’s Projects

Volume 13 Issue 1, January 2016

About this time last year, I was on the snowy, cold, roads heading from my temporary home in Montana (which, I miss achingly) to my old, permanent home in Florida. I have to say that the crazy, hot winter we had here in Florida this year has made me miss those dark, snowy Montana days all the more. It’s hard to believe that I have been home a year, and it took me most of that year to get my studio set back up at home. In the meantime, I did not do much creating, but I did do a lot of sorting of four years of photos from the mountains and car shows. So, I focused on getting my prints ready and offering them for sale. Since my creative time was so limited, there are not a lot of new things in my studio to show off, so I will just wish you a Happy New Year and promise to start expanding my bead making and kit compilations for your designing pleasure in 2016.

More Beads: All but one of my latest cabochons sold out, so I have to make some more as soon as I can.

Coffee Mugs: My hotrod series of art prints are now on coffee mugs. I tried to get them together in time for your holiday shopping. We are now on Amazon Handmade, so things are getting changed up a bit as we settle in.

Art Prints: I am adding prints and other products to the site that feature my art and photography. I am also including a digital art section.

You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website.
Until next month,
Julie & Blu
Things to Look Forward To:

New Products:

Watches: I am making new rose beads to add to watches, and I am considering creating bead kits with the watches so you can make your own.

Thimbles: I am working on getting some new thimbles created. I have sold out, and I want to add another dozen or so to the website.

Bangle bracelets: It took me a long time, but I finally got the blanks built to finish my smaller bangle bracelets. They are a lot of work to build from scratch and take a considerable amount of time, but they are ready for me to decorate with flowers and such.
