Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Save 25% off everything in my etsy shop by using coupon code "sale25" when checking out. Yes, the shop announcement says 20% but you savvy blog readers get an even better deal ;-)

Now*sigh* back to bed for me. I am feeling rather under the weather, and I don't mean the 3-7 inches of snow headed our way. Must have caught a bug. So thankful that it held off until 7pm Christmas evening to kick in.

Slow down

I need a serious slow down. Between orders (finishing my 3rd wholesale order in a month), keeping up with etsy AND preparing for the holidays I am starting to flag. I stopped working the other night because my fingers were sore.

As always at this time of year I like to think about "re-setting" everything, putting things to rights to begin the New Year. I am going to have an after Christmas sale and then close for just a bit the end of January.

Weak in the knees

Sales of my work at terrain are picking up (hurrah!) so its time to order more beads for the etched pearl necklaces. Looking around and considering some other purchases here. I find beat up old beads very appealing. Archeology meets jewlery - whats NOT to like about that?!

Of course beat up old beads often come with a price. "Don't get too attached to that last strand", I said to myself. They are tile beads from Afghanistan thought to be about 2000 years old. A strand of 21 beads costs $120. Gosh - it would be like wearing a museum around your neck!
