New Destash Category

I have officially opened my destash/supplies category in my shop... I have so much I want to get rid of, I may actually open a second Etsy shop, but we'll see how this goes first...

New for spring!

I haven't beaded in a while - I was having fun folding paper. Now that I've run out of paper (I have maybe 50 or so more picture frame cards to glaze and list...), I got out my beads and had some fun!

Speaking of my picture card frames, I found a new use for them! My cousin's wedding is in a couple of weeks in Nebraska, and since I can't make it, I thought a gift card would be the easiest thing to ship. The card I made for them makes a perfect gift card holder! Very cool!

My little artist...

Today I took Colin to the Art Zone in Hermosa Beach. He has such a good time there! Today he painted a very pretty sunshine-y painting, and as usual, was creative with the "stinky" clay!

New items in my shop!

I've just listed more picture frame cards in my shop... They are sold blank, but I can stamp a sentiment for almost every reason or season... These picture frame cards would also be ideal for wedding guests... a little thank you note that can be recycled into a picture frame...

I need your opinion!

Saturday we went to Disneyland. I have heard about hauntings throughout the park, including Walt himself haunting the fire house on Main St. Prior to this picture, Colin stood at the pole looking up, asking me what was up there. I explained to him that it was an apartment that belonged to the man who made Disneyland. Chris and Colin then got up on the old fire engine, and I took a picture. Chris wasn't looking at the camera, so I took another. That time I noticed an orb in the picture, so I immediately took another. There is nothing reflective where the orb is, so it is not from my flash. It is so bright, I just don't think it's dust. What's your opinion - Walt Disney or dust particle?
