My First Bead Table Wednesday

Heather Powers over at Humble Beads, started something called Bead Table Wednesday or BTW. As the title indicates people show pictures of what they are currently working on every Wednesday.

Since I am taking a break from my usual Wednesday Beads until after the Bead Show this weekend, I thought I would play along today.



As you can see it is all about show prep still, I am pricing my glass beads by color coding them with wire. I have a million check lists that I have to organize. Designing the table for the show has been a little challenging, I am finding out that a table with just beads has less personality than a table with jewelry.


I have taken the leap into a credit card reader. I did my research and this Intuit Payment Solutions seems to be the best fit for me. If anyone has one of these out there, let me know how you like it.


As you can see by my personalized cup I am a regular at the local Starbucks.


I thought I would also throw in a picture of Kitchen Sink Wednesday (KSW), although I have to admit there are other days of the week that it looks like this.

Remember there is still a 10% off sale in the shop until Thursday. Just enter the coupon code

to get your discount.

It has been a little quiet in the shop, good to know that my customers really like to see new items in the shop every week. I'm not too surprised its what I like to see in my favorite shops as well.

Let me know if you are going to the Innovative Bead Expo in Syracuse, NY this weekend. I would love to see some of my blog buddies in person. You may even get a special gift, just let me know you follow my blog.

If I don't get too far behind I will continue to keep you posted on my show prep progress.

Kitchen Sink Wednesday! That is hilarious! I am hoping that my kids are taking care of that in my house today while they are at home.
Good luck on your show and do tell how the Intuit app works. I am thinking of the Square myself and it would be good to have other options. Enjoy the day!

KSW!! haaaaaaaaaa Mine looks ridiculous because there are etching chemical bottles up on the counter right next to the dish detergent. It's time to put that stuff away!
Good luck with the show!!

If yesterday was KSW - then today must be HCTVT (holy crap time to vacuum Thursday). The poodles killed a beanie baby and there are pellets and fuzz everywhere.

See you at the show on Sunday!

I love KSW! That may become a trend along with BTW...I know I could contribute to that one! Good luck at your show!! Let us know how the card reader works out...

It's impossible sometimes to do everything, kitchen sinks are just not that important, not when there is beading to be done! Hope you had a good show.
