Fusion News and Extra Links

I have returned from ConStruct and had a wonderful time! I am so exhausted from so much relaxing and stuff though! *grin* So I am easing back into my work week tonight, with a big list of orders and deadlines, and I wanted to blog really quick about two things:

First an exciting announcement! Fusion Beads has started carrying Earthenwood beads and pendants! All the production I have been doing over the last few months has been to stock them up with my work. Fusion is one of my very favorite resources for all of my beading supplies and I am very proud to be working with them. It is quite a thrill to see my beads up on their website. Many of the designs that they are carrying are only available with them, so if you are looking for some of my beads, go check out what they have.

Secondly, I have a round of Extra links to share with you, so click and enjoy!
