New Earrings

Just getting ready to add some new earrings. I find the hardest part of adding anything new to my shop is taking the pictures. I really struggle with this and usually procrastinate. So that being said, here are some new pictures of some earrings. That will soon to be added to my shop! Enjoy

 Having fun with my newly updated shop. I have been trying to promote all my stuff along with as much of yours as I can. I have come across some great homemade treasures. Once I get back into the groove with school I plan on starting my 'feature a crafter' here on my blog. So stay tuned!
 Don't forget, in my previous post, the coupon! It is good through the end of August. Now back to finding some awesome beauties!

One Hippy Huskey

Well, plans have changed and my plan is to be open sometime today! So excited!! I have been adding new treasures and realized that using the Etsy app on my phone makes adding new creations so easy. I highly recommend using the app.
I have also come to see a great wrong, on my part. While I want all kinds of exposure I have been remiss in doing the same for other crafters. Well that's going to change to!
I promoted some crafters on my Facebook page and plan to do the same here. Once upon a time I did a crafter of the week on my blog, but for some reason I stopped. I don't know if I'll be doing one a week, but I will promote when I get a chance. So stay tuned!
If you have been reading this blog then you know I mentioned a coupon for the grand reopening. Here you go:
Thanks for reading!

Coming along

Well , still working on reopening my shop.  I had a book to finish, can't help it, books are my kryptonite! LOL So after a in service class today, my plan is to add at least one new item to the shop. Hopefully more on Sunday!  Then open by next weekend and I'll run a Grand Reopening sale. I might even have a special coupon here for blog readers only. Any ideas? I would love to here them!

I am doing some reconstruction on all my online options. I decided to change somethings around. I thought a rebranding was in order. So it's time to say "goodbye" to Lucy's Bead Studio and "hello" to One Hippy Huskey. I hope the new name expresses the fun, little bit on everything I create.  Hopefully, fingers crossed, I will be opening in the next couple of weeks not only with a new name, but some creative new treasures! 
Please stop by often for updates.
Maybe even some specials just for blog readers!

Something New

A new pair of button earrings ready to be added to my etsy shop. I just love using jump rings and buttons to create fun earrings.
These are full of swing and sway. I am happy to take orders for different color buttons. Maybe something with more of a spring feel. These are fun earrings that will go with everything and are fun to wear.  Come by and check out my shop today!

Ring Dish

Just added to my Etsy shop today.  A cute ring dish, actually I added 2 in one listing.  They are edged with gold paint, a little bling.  I made these ring dished awhile ago and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them.  So they were have just been hanging out in my craft studio.  After I added the gold paint I knew I wanted to add them to my shop.  I know that it's not really something you might find in my shop, but since I added the scarves I think anything will work!  I mean it is my shop after all :)  Hope you like them as much as me.  There are more to come.

Brownie No Eggs

I don't have any eggs in the house. After a week stuck and a little boy that likes hard boiled eggs they can be hard to keep in the house.  I made cookies last week at the being of our ice storm, but we are now going on 9 days of not getting out of the house.  I am really wishing now that I had taken the boys somewhere, anywhere, when I was able.  I thought that we would be back to school by now.  Last night when I got the "no school" text I thought I was going to cry.  At least today we have real snow, no ice, and the boys have been in and out playing in it.  Thank goodness I had the hindsight to buy saucer sleds back in October.  My boys are lucky their Mom is so smart, lol.  Anyway back to the beginning, no eggs.  I decided to spend some time, just a little (lmao), on Pinterest this morning and see if I could find a fun recipe that didn't use eggs.  I was surprised just how many there were, but some called for bananas or applesauce neither of which I have.  Then I found this gem Brownie in a Mug and the boys loved to wish I had some ice cream.  Hummm maybe I can make some snow cream next.

Another Day

The boys were out of school again today!  They were excited, but I'm really ready to get them back to school and me back to work. So I decided today to collect my stock of spent candles, you know the ones with a bit of wax left at the bottom.  You just can't throw them away!  As of right now the house smells wonderful.  I only have 2 wicks, but that should be just about right with the wax I have.
Remember I said I didn't have much wick, well I found some old taper candles and cut them down. So far I've only used the one, but it looks like it should work. The other candle I'm making is in a giant coffe cup, colbolt blue really pretty. (It's in the bowl of cold water.)  You won't be able to see the layers, but it is gonna smell great!
Have a wonderful Monday and do something creative!

Silk Wrapped Bracelet

Something new....I have been working a few new pieces during this extended President's Day.  LOL I know!  The boys were out of school on Monday and haven't been back yet!  My fingers are crossed for this Monday. 
I'm pretty lucky because the boys are 9 and 12, they will let me work in peace, mostly.  Except of course if they are hungry to thirsty.  But that is problem more time that most.  Don't get me wrong I love that they ask for these things, but am happy that they can entertain themselves.  
I have made a couple new jewelry pieces, but today I am just sharing one.  I am trying to remember my blog and add more to it.  So with no more fan fare here is a new bracelet. 
 This is a simple metal bracelet I have up cycled, a thrift store find most likely.  I wrapped it in a raw silk, beautiful and soft.  A lovely yellow, really quite a rich color, and black with an undercurrent of blue.  There is also a touch of purple, just a small stripe.  It is a little full of yellow on one side where the silk is a little thicker, still beautiful!
Hope you come by my shop and check out the other new goodies I have listed this week!
Happy Snow Days (lol)

Finger knit scarves

A new project while I was on winter break. Needed something to do with the boys being home. So I learned, thanks to Pinterest, how to finger knit. Boy is it addictive and fun. So here are some pictures of a couple of scarves that I made and listed in my Etsy shop. Enjoy
