Minimalist and Spring

Volume 13 Issue 3, March 2016

What's New in March?

Spring is right around the corner, and I am working on flowers both inside my studio and outside in the garden. Last year, I planted a lot of day lilies that are maturing and hopefully, will bloom this year. My amaryllis is down to one leaf, but it will soon start sprouting more. My milkweed has multiplied from one plant that is now dead to seven smaller plants that should start to bloom soon. The butterflies will love that. Honeysuckle is blooming and the bottle brush is starting to bud.

All of these flowers make me want to  start working on making more canes and beads. I have gotten a few things done, but most of this year has been spent working on other projects that needed to be done. Like rebuilding the website again and splitting out my beads from the rest of my site. I am doing a little reorganization here.  A little spring cleaning.

In the meantime, I have concentrated on working with minimalist styles.   

More Beads: Cabochons, loose beads, pill beads and more tube beads are all on the list of things to do this month.

Prints and Posters: I have been working on compiling art and photos to  have printed as posters, cards and other prints. They will soon be available on my website.

Potholder Magnets: New designs and an expansion on some of my tried and true best sellers are in the works.

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: There are new watches in my shop. I went a little Southwestern with beads and charms.

Thimbles: I am working on getting some new thimbles created. I am completely sold out.

Hotrod magnets: I am adding hotrod magnets to my shops, and since I only have one finished, I will have to show them off next month.
