Hurricanes and Beach Houses

Volume 13 Issue 9, September 2016

What's New in September?

The hurricane season is just getting ramped up, and we’re doing our annual preparedness checks. Trimming trees, cleaning up trimmings and other ways to protect the property. After a month with no rain, it’s nice to be getting rainy days. The flowers all appreciate it, but the birds aren’t happy about a wet feeder.

With all the rainy weather, I have spent some days tucked inside listening to it rain and making more beads and jewelry. I have a very long project list that I am working on getting through. I have things on the list like trying new techniques and adding new product lines to my store. Some of my experiments fail spectacularly!

When the beads won’t roll right, I have to turn to doing other things like working on graphics and other projects.

This is a work in progress that will become a line of home accessories, and at some point, something that we can personalize.


More Beads: I have a whole new line of individual beads listed and am working on finishing a new shape of bead with faux lampwork techniques.

Canes: I am reworking my cane stash. It’s been too hot to ship them, so I have been working on designing new canes.

Watches: I finished five new watches. Two of them have duplicates.

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:

Hotrod magnets: I am adding hotrod magnets to my shops, and since I only have one finished, I am not ready to show them off yet.

Bangle Bracelets: Have a few bangles done, but adding a lot more.

Hotrod Calendar: I finished two hot rod calendars and a Yellowstone calendar. They will be in the shop shortly.
