Studio Tour Sunday

  This week has been spent getting over a cold and working on some beads for a big Halloween order.  It ships out tomorrow so I have been rushing to make my deadline.  Hopefully I will have a few extra for my bead show, the Bead Bonanza, next Sunday.  I love October!

  1. Hi Melanie, thanks for sharing your links and your little goulish friends are so cute.
    take care & i hope you feel better soon..its really going around right now everyone i know either has burning nostrals or a sore throat with a cough lot on vitamin C in the winter months helps you have to kind of suck on them slowly the chewable ones.
    ttfn Lana :)

  2. Those beads are so super FUNTastic!!!!! I so want them!!

  3. So where can we buy these if we aren't local and can't come to your bead show? And the ones that are in your giveaway. Is there some place to go where we can buy those too?

    These pieces are sooo wonderful.

  4. LissC, thanks! I will probably be listing some of the creepy guys in my etsy shop soon. There is a link at the top of the blog. I am not doing a giveaway at the moment, so I am not sure which ones you mean... but Etsy is always a good place to check. :)
