Volume 17 Issue 7, July 2020
What's New in July?
Hot, hot, hot. Yep, that’s what’s new in July.
We are working towards a huge restock of beads in the store, and I have a brand new batch of polymer clay to play with. While I am not making as many beads as I would like in one sitting, I am getting a number of canes and sets done that will go a long way towards rebuilding my bead inventory.
Between bead breaks, we are watching the bamboo grow and trying to keep our feeder filled, so our resident bird population has a place to enjoy a snack and a dip in the bird bath.
There appears to be a new influx of squirrels, so I have to assume that we have babies out there. The babies don’t know that I would prefer they not lay on the porch railing under my trailing petunias. The little ones are prone to snacking on the petunias while they lounge about. I don’t think petunias are poisonous, but the squirrels have plenty of other snacks in the yard.
Speaking of babies, we have a new one in our little corner of the world. I am a first-time grandma in the age of Covid-19 and while I cannot see her, the technology of 2020 keeps us connected via phone, videos and chats. I held her for about three minutes and made her cry. I am better off as the video grandma. :)
Here is one of our most recent bird visitors. I admit, I don’t have a feeder for him.
Beads: Brand new sets of beads from kaleidoscope canes are now a reality in my shop. I have many other beads in the works.
Bracelet: Fun charm bracelets with Bible verses and Mom charms.
Charms: I added a large assortment of 20mm and 25mm charms for purchase.
You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com
Until next month,
Things to Look Forward To:
Posters: I am working on my one word posters and wall hangings. There are also wood blocks to be added.
Loose Beads: I am focusing on making sets of beads again, so look for more beads to show up in my shop. I am not certain about the canes just yet, but I am planning on them for 2020.
Pins: A lot of new button pins have been created for Halloween and are in the shop.
