Whole Bead Show VIP Giveaway!



The excitement is growing, as I've been working feverishly at my torch, creating new lampwork beads and other goodies to sell at the upcoming Whole Bead Show in Lynnwood, WA! The show is only two weeks away and is sure to be a great one to visit for anyone who loves to shop for beads in a variety of materials such as glass, metals and gemstones—plus there will be a lot of other things like jewelry findings and finished jewelry designs as well. (Are you drooling already?…)

And I've got some special VIP passes to give away to two lucky winners, who can get into the show and bring a friend for FREE! To enter to win one, you just have to have "liked" my Facebook page (click HERE to visit it), and then leave a comment at the end of this post to say you'd like to be entered in the drawing. That's pretty easy, right?! And for an extra chance to win, share my page with your friends via Facebook or any other social media site and let me know in a separate comment.

If you don't use Facebook at all, you can still enter by leaving a comment, including a suggestion for a new bead design you think would be great for me to make. :-)

Deadline to enter: Saturday, April 27th
I'll draw names on Sunday and announce the winners then!

Friday Find: Spinning Tray Tower

I've had a lot of interest in the black tray tower that my readers saw in my last Studio photo shoot, so I thought it would be perfect to share as one of my "Friday Finds" so you can get one (or more?!) for yourself too!


As you may know from past posts about my efforts to organize my studio, I have a LOT of supplies that are constantly in use and taking up valuable table real estate. So when I discovered this cool item hiding in the back of my local Harbor Freight Tools store (one of my favorite places), I couldn't help but do a little Happy Dance right there in the aisle! Because this bad boy has a multitude of features that are perfect for my sorting needs: four main trays divided into four or six separate bins that spin independently of each other, in a compact, sleek black design that takes up only about a foot of space on my table. And at less than $20, it's a great deal too. Now that's what I call an elegant answer to my storage prayers!

I love being able to see my favorite bead goodies spin around for inspiration and having my "go to" jewelry making supplies right at my fingertips whenever I need them as I work. And it's so easy to just throw everything back in their proper area and not have to be as neat about it if I don't have the time.

If you want one of these beauties for your own, they're easy to find either online by clicking HERE, or at your own local store if you have one. But one word of warning— they come unassembled and have a surprisingly large amount of nuts and bolts that need to be attached by hand (according to my wonderful hubby who put two of these together for me. Thanks, Honey!) But it's definitely worth it, especially if you can sweet-talk someone handy into helping you!

hmmmmmm…I think I might need to go pick up a couple more of these?! What could you use one for? *Ü*
