Fresh Snow, Fresh Website!

Volume 11 Issue 2, February 2014

What's New in February?
Fresh snow, fresh start. There are several inches of new snow lying on the
ground. It is pristine, as in Blu has not gone out and munched on it yet. He
seems to view snow as his own personal ice cream field. He grazes upon
the white fluff like a kid in a bucket of ice cream. I may not get the attraction,
I do get the desire to enjoy something fresh and new.
While I wait for the new buds to open and the new birds to arrive, I am looking
at all my beads, findings, designs and projects. It is inventory time, and I am
having a wonderful time playing in all the relocated beads. There is something
about a handful of loose beads to jog the creative spirit. At least, that is how
I see it.
Since I have rebuilt within the last six
months, I have been gearing up for a great 2014. While working on the site,
I began noting things that I want to do to share more of my creativity with you.
My bead kits and my bead giveaways are just the beginning. I want to help
you design and create your own jewelry. As much as I enjoy stringing my
beads, I know that you want to string your own.

Here is the latest voting on the beads Blu and I are giving away in February.

Which Set of Beads Will We Give Away Next?

I am working on a tutorial schedule to go along with the blog. If you haven’t
already, be sure and sign up for my newsletter to get more information on
bead giveaways, tutorials, new jewelry, beads and canes. I did a lot of
spring cleaning, and I am ready to create some great new products.
Thumbtacks! We found these were a fun way to decorate bulletin and cork boards everywhere, so we went silly creating these fun pushpins. Of course,
I have lots of designs to create for future thumbtacks.
Canes! I am planning my clay cane production for the new year, and I am
looking forward to playing with new techniques and designs.
Everything is in my Artfire studio, my Etsy shop and my
Until next month,
Julie & Blu


New Products:
New Watches—New beads will start finding their way onto new watch bands as the spring flower creation begins. These watches are not listed yet, so stay tuned to when they will hit my studio.
New Necklaces— Lots of simple chain necklaces with pendants are on the way to the studio. New donut beads will be added to other necklaces and to my studio.
