New Facebook Page

I have set up a page for my jewelry in Facebook to try to get the word out. Facebook is a great way to spread word of mouth about business and such. You can get fans, set up events and just let everyone know what you're up to.
You can visit my page for Thumbelina Creations, or set up your own here.

Collaboration Necklace for the CGGE & etsyBead Challenge

A beautiful pink marbleized glass pendant with silver key charm, created by Carrie of Calyxann.
The short chain is 16 in. while longer chain is 18 in. The pink marbleized pendant with key charm is the focal point of the longer chain. The center of the shorter chain carries an antique silver button and light pink glass teardrop. Various other glass beads decorate the chains, as well.
This necklace is very light and comfortable to wear. It doesn't shift around on the neck. And all the glass beads sparkle when they catch the light.
The necklace was created by Jonquil of Thumbelina Creations.

This necklace was created for the CGGE & etsyBead collaboration challenge. You can read more about this challenge at http://creativemindsforcharity.wordpress.com/

Introducing Snap Shots from Snap.com

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.
