Lucy's Bead Studio has a coupon

 It is already half way through the New Year and beside the weird weather nothing much else is happening.  I thought that maybe to get alittle more activity in my shop I would offer a coupon.  So how does 15% off any purchase over $5.00 sound?  Hopefully it sounds great!  A awesome time to get a special gift for Valentine's Day.

I have been adding new thing to the shop this month and all new items are included.  I have added a few pictures of some of the new items but feel free to shop around ;)  Thanks for visiting.

This is a new T-Shirt scarf that I added today.  Great color, vibrant orange.  A statement with any outfit.  Great with all the winter layers we are all wearing now or a stunner with a t shirt and jeans.  Even dress up a tank top.
These are large white glass beads with silver accents.  Haven't been added to my shop yet....but will be this week.  Maybe tonight.  Somehow I have been roped into making a monster stuffed animal for my youngest son and he wants to sleep with it tonight so I guess I am sewing.   Hope you enjoy what's in the shop and stop by often.  Coupon is NEWYEARS2012

The Chalk Board

So recently I thought I had a great idea...a chalk board in the boys room.  How fun right?!  Well, yes the boys love it.  The chalk dust I could live without, but my youngest will draw until there is no chalk left.  So a good idea with a little extra clean up for me, but overall fun.  We use it for our spelling and work wall words also.

Well the indoor chalk board was such a hit and the paint was alittle on the pricey side.  I decided that there needed to be something else to do with the paint, hummm?  I did think about little chalk boards as gifts, but then I had a light bulb moment!  Don't you just love those?

Here is what I can up with, and you know how popular the indoor room version was....well this was/is even more so!  So go out today get some chalk board paint, paint a section of the wall in your child's room or paint a board and put it outside!

 Here is what you need, for the outside version.
 Yes, you can read that and don't worry his brother got him back. :)
The boys spend alot of time out there, but the flower is all me.

Z Box

For a new adventure this year I decided to join the Z Box on Zibbet.  A great idea that a few creative ladies on Zibbet came up with.  Shop ask to join the group and then are able to send in samples of their work.  These samples are then added to a box with samples from other shop.  Customers can buy the boxes and will get a great selection of what if offered on Zibbet, and the great work we all  do!

Not sure why I didn't do this sooner, but I am ready.  In fact I spent most of my Saturday evening making some earrings and book thongs for the boxes.  Hope to have everything done this week so I can get it out by early next week.  At least that's my plan and we all know how that works out sometimes. :)

Z Box check it out!

Something New

Added something new new to my Zibbet shop this afternoon.  Usually I stick to jewelry, but I saw something on Pintrest the other day and just had to make it.  A scarf made from t-shirts!  What a brilliant idea, why didn't I think of this?  I made 1 for myself and 1 for the shop.  I have two more to make, hopefully they will get done Friday.  So, here are some pictures of my new scarf.  Enjoy :)

beautiful blue color!

 looped twice, cute little bow there
looped three times, this one is extra long

This scarf is a little longer that the last one that I made, but it looks great.  You can also just wear it without looping.  A great look with all your winter layers or light enough for the spring.  Beautiful scarf!

New Year

So its the begining of a new year and that can mean, at least for me, only one thing!  A new reading challenge.  This year I have decided to really challenge myself and take on 60 book.  That is quite a few books.  Now paranormal romance are my currect favorite but I have decided to branch out alittle this year.  I have already started The Gaurdian by Sherrilyn Kenyon, one of my all time favorite authors!  Next up is The Help, Mom said it was great, and then Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.  I would love input from you all...favorite books of yours?  Feel free to leave me a note, I would love to hear from you.
