So here are some pictures of the new Enjoyment House Pendants. They are one of my big new items for the Bead & Button Show, but I am previewing them for you in my Etsy shop. Each one is unique and not able to be reproduced, so if you see one you like, get it now! I called them Enjoyment Houses because "Raku" means "enjoyment" when translated. Oh, and the blogging team over at the Beads of Clay blog wrote a post about different Raku techniques (including mine). So check it out if Raku interests you!
So I have a kind of big announcement to make! Today's post is my 999th post here on this blog. Can you believe it? I started this blog early in the new year of 2005, obviously the result of some business new year resolutions. There have been some times where I have posted nearly every day for months on end, and some times when I haven't posted anything at all for months. In the last couple of years, it has become a part of my daily routine to blog. I have used this space to pimp my business, toot my horn, whine and complain, and share my joys and sorrows.
And as I am closing in on my 1000th blog post, I also happen to be closing in on my 1000th Etsy sale. I don't know if that is a coincidence of if the two are related, but it seems like a good round and arbitrary number to celebrate! I am planning a couple of special things for the blog and etsy shop to celebrate in the next couple of weeks while I get ready and am off at Bead & Button, so keep checking back! See you tomorrow for post 1000!
