August BluPrint Blue Morning Expressions Newsletter

What's New in August?

July ended with a host of new beads. I added a new bead format to my bead collection. I had created a bunch of new canes and then I created a bunch of new floral rounds and from there other things grew.

Earring Pairs
have been something that I have putting off for a long time now. I am happy to inform you that I have created over 50 pairs and most are under $2.50.

I ended up with a lot of new canes as I was exhausting my old Fimo to make way for the new Fimo since they changed the formula. As it turned out, Premo! went on sale big time and I ended up completely restocking 5 full bins of that. I forgot how nice those colours were and how much more vibrant they were.

I used up all the blends that I did as I was creating the new flowers and now I need to finish making all my beads! I finished 26 sets of floral rounds and I have done a dozen pillow beads but I still am working on floral lentil beads. I did a couple sets but then I got sidetracked and haven’t gone back to finishing those yet.

The new beads are available on now. has been updated and all the bracelet patterns are up. I have a couple of the tapestries up but have not finished all of those yet. I added a few more wolf patterns and I have added a free pattern section. I will be putting up free patterns on the site.

If you have purchased bracelet patterns from me in the past and did not receive the 10 colour and under updates, please let me know and I will get those to you. I have updated the patterns to make it easier on everyone.

Fans of clip on earrings for big girls will find restocked with earrings just for them. I added 20 sets of dangles with Swarovski, glass pearls, Czech faceted rounds and lots of iridescent and sparkly things. Also added were one of a kind sets of millefiori glass hearts, diamonds and chicklet beads.

Thank you so much for all the input and emails. I enjoy all the encouragement that you send my way.

Until next month,
