Another Sunday Morning Treat...

I could get used to this: Get up on Sunday morning. Turn on the computer. Find something from my Etsy shop in a Treasury!! Yeah baby! Gotta love it! It will be receiving clicks (hint, hint!) until Tuesday, March 31, in the evening.

I present As I Live and Bead, curated by Debra of Beads and Blooms.

Debra makes some absolutely beautiful wearable art, and one of my personal favorites is the Blue Angel Necklace. Lovely isn’t it? Such a gorgeous stone, surrounded by the graceful woven seed beads.

Yay, First Etsy Sale…

Well, I love “firsts”! Today, I made my first sale on my Etsy shop! It was for the Shimmering Sapphire Earrings I listed a couple of weeks ago. Not a big sale, but I am pumped and fully expecting this to be enough to pull me out of my “downy dumps” about NO sales!! I am very grateful, and look forward to many more, perhaps in the not too distant future!!
