What's New in December?
We are once again going to be at the Indian River Mall for the H.A.L.O. no-kill shelter arts and crafts show on December 1 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so if you are in our area, stop by the mall and see our beads in person. This is our last in-person show of the year.
I have been busy creating new pieces that work well as stocking stuffers, and the keyrings for the guys are hard to keep in stock!
It’s been a whirlwind of activity with getting ready for the holidays personally and sharing all of our handmade friend’s offerings across the world.
Our front yard has been a busy place as birds and squirrels alike have been reminded that they like the feeder full of goodies for them. Even in Florida, they like the luxury of lounging around in the feeder. All of my flowers have either died back or are in winter mode. There are sycamore leaves all over the ground, and our maple is turning red. It’s becoming winter here.
Nothing says the holidays like a pair of buzzards in a pine tree.
Key rings: I am taking the key rings one step further and creating purse charms and rings. With lots of beads and things. Have them started, but nothing to show yet. Soon ...
Cuff Bracelets: I added peacock bracelets and matching earrings to the stock here and for the show. I am going to take the peacocks and create bookmarks as my newest project.
Magnets: WOW—lots and lots of them and all types of images.
Things to Look Forward To:
Leggings: My supplier has added a great legging line, so I have been experimenting with design and element placement. I have one new set ready in my shop and more in design mode.
Posters: Many of my bible verse posters are available in my Etsy shop and soon to be in my webstore.
Bookmarks: I decided that some of my beads and images would translate nicely to bookmarks. Those are on the bench.
You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com
Until next month,
