I don't know what got into me yesterday but I just had a sudden urge to make hearts. Big, hollow vessel hearts, little offhand ribbon hearts, all kinds of hearts. I hardly ever make hearts...it must be valentine's day sneaking into my subconscious.
Here is a group shot of what I made. I will be back with another post later about that big huge red hollow vessel. The hole is too big for any of the corks that I have. I don't want to make a glass stopper for it. By the time I order a larger cork- I will have missed Valentine's day market so I think I'll be offering that one up as a free giveaway. When I make the post, all you have to do is comment on the post and you will be entered to win it. Then I'll draw a winner and send out the heart. More details later.
On the home front- we got more snow as you can see from the background of the picture above. That's my front porch. I can honestly say that as much as I LOVE winter and snow- even I am getting a little sick of snow. We had a mini-heat wave last week here. It was warm and sunny and all the snow melted. Then BAM...3 more inches over night. The sun is shining so I will take that blessing and run with it. LOL I moved all my houseplants into the bay window and they are happily using their chlorophyll and gorging themselves on sunlight.
On the business front-if you order from me you will notice a change in my packaging. Before- I would ship all beads wrapped numerous times in bubble wrap, a piece of tissue and your invoice in a white poly bubble mailer.
Now- anything sculptural goes in a box. Anything non fragile gets a bubble mailer BUT there is still a difference. I've gone from the plastic mailers to white kraft heavy-duty mailers and all purchases are packaged like little gifts to yourself. Enjoy...I know I'm having fun packing up beads. Feels like a birthday. ;-)
Have a great day...I'll be back again I'm sure.
