Upcoming Studio Sale and Extra Links

I am sitting in a sunny window at Panera this Sunday morning, working on my laptop because my home internet was unreliable yesterday. I wanted to make sure to post this week's Extra links and to start to set up my Etsy shop for the Studio Sale I am having this weekend. Cindy Gimbrone and Andrew Thornton and I are all having sales in our shops next weekend, and I wanted to get prepared. I have relisted my Studio Sale beads and have been marking down some items today. By the weekend, I will have a bunch of new Steampunk Sale Sets in the store, so I hope you will check back at the blog this week for some previews. In the meantime, feel free to go and shop the Studio Sale early.

Here are this week's Extra Links for you.
