Manic Monday 2/24/14 (LaJuliet Exclusive, Bead Show Finds and CribCreations)

What a weekend!!!!  I took the weekend off from beading, but I spent the whole weekend planning on beading!! On Saturday I went (by my self – THANK YOU HUBBY) to a bead show.  My intention was to just find a few clasps and/or focals to add to my 8th Bead Soup Blog Party soup, but just look at what I purchased…. 
I know those aren’t the best photos, but you can see it all, can’t you??  I am so excited.  Other than the few Cabs and a couple of other things – I already know what I plan to make with each item!!  This is a problem for me, though, I have so many ideas in my head…. I just can’t bead fast enough!!  
Did you start a new project recently?  
Today I am starting a new project!  Do you remember the fossils that I picked up on a trip to St. Augustine a couple of weeks ago?  Well, they have been ‘pulling’ at me!! So, today I start with the brown one… you can come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch it grow!!
I DO have a new listing for today and it is an EXCLUSIVE one to my La Juliet studio.  Just look at the deep – rich – colors in this necklace set.  You can wear it with or without the knot!!,92/exclusive-deep-mahogany-gemstone-and-burgundy-glass-pearls-with-gold-plated-findings-a-krafty-max-original-design,297
Do you remember me showing you these beads from my Prima Blog Team Member kit from Jan/Feb?  Well, I am finally done!! I will be showing off the creations I made tomorrow and Wednesday.  Please check back and see them.  They are creations that YOU can make, no matter your skill or experience level!!
Today’s featured artist is; CribCreations.  You can clearly see that these beautiful creations come from the heart.  There is everything you can think of for your baby.  This little blanket is actually a match for a larger one.  This is a security blanket….wow, what a wonderful idea!  This great handmade artist also has lots of fabric and other creations to look at, so remember, always support handmade artists!!

    It definitely looks like you picked up some super unique and fun things at that bead show you went to! And how nice of hubby to hold down the fort so you can escape into bead-inspired bliss for awhile 😀

    I actually just ordered $40 in beads and supplies for a new custom order I’m working on! Oy!

      Yes, it was amazing. Although my kids love to look to, there is NOTHING like having part of a day to just myself in a room (large room) with BEADS!!!

      Glad you are feeling a little better and you are inspired!! ~KM
