One Bead At A Time

I am wanting to start a new trend here on Etsy and I think its a great idea for us jewelry designers. I call it One Bead At A Time. Anyone who is interested has until Sept.5th to send in at least 1 bead from their collection be it any material shape or size. Lets see how long we can make a necklace from all the contributed beads.

After Sept.5th I will need some time to assemble the necklace then I will draw a name randomly from the sellers who took part in this event and the winner gets the necklace = ). All it will cost you is 1 bead, your business card, and the postage to my address which if you win you get so much more in return. I plan on making some runner up prizes whether it be a gift certificate or soap or something along those lines.

If you wish to participate please convo me and I will exchange info with you there.

My blog www.kapryecreations.blogspot.com/ will have a list of the participates in the contest when I start receiving messages. Please make sure you place a business card in with the bead as well.

Please note I plan on having some filler beads of my own in the event we don't get a big turn out so at least someone will still get a good sized necklace out of the deal.

Getting ready for the holidays

So I am just as the title says getting my crafting materials ready for the late end holidays. Next year I hope to be able to do more for other events but X-Mas has always been the make it or break it part of the year. I plan on having more baskets with a variety of items inside. As well as some new soaps and jewelry. I have been pretty busy and haven't had a chance to blog here much. Between last month and this month I have had to carry my husband to the hospital four times. Given the fact he is only 30 and me 29, I just never thought we would be making these trips like we did. He has cluster headaches and they are cronic so we need to get with a head doctor and he will be put on drugs for the remainder of his life. For those that pray, please do we could use some good words put in for us. We don't have insurance and the payments for the bills are insane. He is still trying to find work with the IT Associates degree he recently received but places want experience but how can you get experience if no one gives you a chance? Well its clear I have rambled myself from crafting to my personal life. But if anything it just proves I am just as much human as the rest of ya. I hope your year was alot better then mine so far. I will be blogging more in the future I promise. Til then everyone stay safe.
