Wow, it’s been a while since I blogged here regularly. After the bead soup blog party I must have subconsciously needed a break.
I wasn’t completely absent though, I’m taking part in Diana of Suburban Girl Studio‘s mismatched art bead earring swap. My partner here in Australia is Melissa Trudinger of Bead Recipes. Of course I had a go at the sequintastic challenge in my previous post, and I think I’m over my dread of sewing sequins.
Mmmm what else, well after troubleshooting ipad problems for most of my extended family I bit the bullet (so to speak) and bought one for myself. I’m hoping that I can blog on my ipad (like I’m doing now) and do almost all of the stuff that I was doing on my laptop. More about useful apps later.
I’ve also finally opened my Madeit store I’ve only got a few things listed there at the moment, mostly Kumihimo bracelets like these.
I’m in the process of designing some earrings to be listed there as well. Oh, and I’ve got free shipping in my store for the month of October, to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness. Bracelets for Christmas will be listed soon.
Since I’ve been designing earrings I realised I needed some custom earring cards. I’m pretty good with photoshop and my youngest daughter is a good sounding board for design. When I’ve printed some up I’ll show them off here. They might make a good product for my store as well. I noticed a quite a few on Etsy but none on Madeit.
Come back on the 16th October for the MisMatched Art Bead Earring Swap reveal.
