New Items!

I have tried out shrink plastic as a new medium in my jewelry. It is a lot of fun! I will be adding pictures within the next few days and adding them to my store.

Favorite Bead Stores

I am always searching for great deals on beads and store that sell unique one that will make my jewelry unique, too. So, I have compiled a list of my favorite bead stores for you.

Wal-Mart - It actually has some really great pendants, and the findings are comparable to other stores.

Michael's - Of course, the crafting superstore. Sometimes it can be more pricey than other stores, but they have a fairly good variety.

There are many great supply shops on Etsy. I am personally a big fan of supporting the Etsy community, since I have my own shop there.

Every once in a while, I take the time to check out a local bead shop or boutique. They don't have to be big stores to have amazing beads. In fact, because they are small, they sometimes have one-of-a-kind beads. Look in your local yellow pages. I'm sure you'll find one you absolutely love.

Featuring... Shrink Plastic

Shrink plastic has apparently been around for a long time already. Goodness, why haven't I heard of it?! Anyway, I have found some great sites on the internet showing how to make awesome jewelry out of this stuff.
You can see tutorials and check out the finished products at Craft Therapy and PlanetJune.

I haven't yet had a chance to try this technique, but be sure that I will. So, coming soon to my store... shrink plastic.


I recently had a table at the Crafting in the Valley Craft Fair in Linden, AB. It was held on Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7. I have had bad experiences with craft fairs in the past, so I was a little nervous. But I must say, I had a good time and really great traffic past my table. So, this is one show I will do again in the future.

Mighty Girl

I recently read Maggie Mason's blog, Mighty Girl. On her blog, she has a list of things she wants to do yet in her life. It has inspired me to write my own list. My list is still in the beginning stages, but you can see what I wrote on Crafty Mom, my other blog.

Maggie would love to read yours too. Make your own Mighty Life List, and send your URL to maggie@mightygirl.net with the subject "Mighty Life".
