I have decided that since I didn't get all my Christmas shopping done over the weekend that you might not have either! Therefore, use the code BLACKFRIDAY10 in both Etsy shops to get 10% off your order plus FREE SHIPPING. I will be keeping this promotion going until December 14th! So check out
I will also honor the discount on any custom orders! If you have something particular in mind let me help you express yourself ;)

We all have so much for which to be thankful! If you're reading this I know you can be thankful for Internet at least, right?! Most of all I am thankful for my family both blood relatives and spiritual brother and sisters :) And this year we have another family that is specifically thankful for my brother Ben! Check out this link to a news spot about a couple he helped save in South Carolina:
He's 6'6" diver you see in the video and he was the first guy to be in the water!

I will be having a sale of 10% off everything in both of my shops as well as FREE SHIPPING on all orders! Shipping will be refunded via Paypal/credit/debit card. Check out Tropical Blonde for my creations and Tropical Blonde Supplies for DIY jewelry supplies. Be sure to check out the Kits section for great, affordable gift ideas! Some of the color schemes for sale are shown above. On Etsy you also have the "Commit to buy" option that is NOT actual payment so if you want to reserve yourself some items before the rush on Friday you can go shopping now and come back on Friday to pay and get the sale. Get started now!

More importantly...COURTNEY BREUL....come on down!! Courtney won the rainbow from my Early Christmas giveaway! Courtney just had surgery on her back so hopefully the rainbow can brighten her days while she recovers. Thank you to everyone who entered! Stay tuned for details on my Holiday sale for Black Friday.

I have a part time job in women's fashion retail and we had our holiday meeting this weekend. I won a drawing for this display that we are no longer going to be using in our store. I couldn't take it's picture all at once because it is slightly taller that I am and my studio isn't big enough for me to get far enough away! But I love being able to "shop" so easily now in my own stash :)
I'm so happy I could just...GIVE AWAY SOME BEADS!! I will draw a winner on Monday morning the 22nd of November. The winner will receive one strand of beads of every color in the rainbow (6 strands in all). US residents only for the beads but if you live abroad you can still enter! Overseas participants will receive a $5 egiftcard to Amazon.

It's not even lunch time yet and it's already a great day :). Isaac is out of school in honor of our esteemed Veterans. We are having steady snow so it's a cozy, cuddly day of books, beads and clay for all of us. Yup, my rough and tumble hooligans like to bead too! They love to get into the clay if I let them.
Anyway, Dave at Rings & Things sent me an email this morning. I am officially a Blog Partner! Woot woot! Thanks, Dave! I am super excited to be involved with such a great group. Look for their logo in the side bar and check out the site. You'll find something you can't live without, I'm sure of it. They also have a blog with great information and fun stuff.
In, other beady news...I will be posting a new product in the next few days *hopefully* that will be a great gift for the holidays that are barreling down on us! Stay tuned.
Special words of thanks to all those who have served or are serving in our armed forces. We are honored that you have or would pay the ultimate price to keep us free. Thank you.

Lori has posted her last installment of October's Cup of Bead Soup. She did some amazingly simple and fabulous looking pieces that showcase my work. I can't tell you how fun this has been to do. Having someone as accomplished and well known as Lori working with my pieces has been such an encouragement in the jewelry/blogging world. Thanks Lori!
