These earrings I used my murrini headpins and bronze discs by Lesley Watt.
I used some of my spiral headpins and copper ammonite discs by Kristi Bowman.
The last pair of earrings use my beads and ceramic charms by Karen Totem.
My dream car (at this moment) is a Tesla. I was super excited when we went to the King of Prussia mall to visit the Apple Store and there was a Tesla shop right next door!!! Unfortunately a Tesla still isn't in the budget...
Tomorrow I'll share photos of the loot I scored at Bead Fest. I planned on dusting the Etsy shop this week and doing a grand reopening with what I have left. However, I just learned about Soldsie and am thinking about trying that out Thursday evening. It's done on Facebook, so make sure you like my page if you haven't already. You won't have to leave Facebook to go to Etsy and as I'm not overly thrilled with some of the changes Etsy has been implementing, I was thinking I would just start selling directly from Facebook or here. Soldsie is supposed to make it easier for both buyers and sellers. I'm willing to try it out. I hope you are too.
Enough rambling for today. I need to save some rambling for my post on AJE tomorrow :) I will try to update my blog while I'm at Bead Fest. But if I don't, you can always follow my adventures on Facebook or on Instagram.
It took me awhile to get into the first book in the series, but it has my attention now. And since I only allow myself to listen while working or in the car while driving, it motivates me to get to work.
Using the Audible App on my iPhone has been the best method of listening to audiobooks. I can take my book with me anywhere and listen anytime. The Audible account is mine, but my family has all downloaded the app onto their various devices...phones, iPods, and iPads. We can each download any of the books I've purchased on the account and listen to them when we want. It saves the location where we stopped listening each time. I personally love it. My husband was the last to start using it, but ever since I set it up for him, he listens in the car and has told me how much he loves it (I've even caught him sitting in the driveway listening in his car to "finish a chapter").
If you look at my stats, you can tell when I'm getting ready for a show. My last show was the first week in April. After that I spent the spring and summer as my daughter's minion.
I recently made an impulse purchase of an iHome stereo system. I got mine on sale at Target for $60. It's purple instead of boring black. I didn't expect much for the $60 price tag.
However, it's been wonderful! It's loud and clear enough to hear over the noise of the torch, the exhaust fan, the oxygen concentrator, and the kiln. Plus it charges my phone at the same time. Not only do the audiobooks help me keep working, but I get to "read" so many more books than I would otherwise. In fact, I would never pick up Game of Thrones to read with my eyes.
Do you listen to audibooks? What are some of your favorites? Or do you prefer music? Television?
A few days after he got home, we went to Florida for a family reunion (I took zero pictures!). The day we got back from our week in Florida, I unpacked, did laundry, and repacked for a filming trip to northern Michigan (Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, etc.). My daughter is one of the main characters in a film called Street Symphony being produced by a local company called Windsong Pictures. (That's her on the right) Bead Fest Philly August 23-25. Most of my posts for the next month will center around what I'm making and what I'm taking. Facebook. I often share photos of things I'm working on. If you're on Facebook, I would love for you to like my page! I also post some stuff on Instagram and would love for you to follow me there. I will be back tomorrow, so please stop by again!
