Free Shipping

I guess a combination of the holiday weekend and having a bead show next weekend has prompted me to have free domestic shipping in the shop starting right now until Monday, June 3rd.

But I don't really need a reason, I told you I would be having more random sales and specials in the shop this year.

Just use the coupon code


in the space that ETSY provides at checkout and you will have free domestic shipping. As usual for all my international customers I will refund you $2.50 off of your shipping fee via whatever method you paid.

More housekeeping:

I will not be taking anymore custom orders right now, but I will be resuming custom orders on July 17th. If you have a bead emergency contact me and I will check my inventory for you.

If you look to your right you will see at the top of the sidebar my summer schedule which includes all of my listing dates and shows. 

Sorry the listing dates are a little light in June but it will be a very busy month.

I don't know about the rest of you but I tend to panic when I have a lot on my plate. My daughter is graduating from high school on the 12th of June, so there is also a dash of extra emotions in the mix. 

I feel like it is a time of beginnings and endings and even though I will always be a Mom I have to define myself differently now. Thank goodness for my shop, bead shows, and all of you. The growth of my hobby into a job will help fill some of that space in my life now, which is exciting and scary at the same time.

To celebrate Natalie's graduation we are going on a family trip. We are going on a 12 day Disney Cruise in Europe. In the past our family has taken some of their cruises when our daughter was little and they do a wonderful job.

We will be leaving from Barcelona, Spain and docking at ports in France, Italy, Croatia, and Malta. We will not have much time in each port maybe 12 hours. So I have a lot of research to do to figure out where to explore or maybe just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by.

I will probably be reaching out on facebook with questions about must sees on the cruise, but I can't get to that until my Pittsburg show is over next weekend.

Speaking of which you can click the link on the sidebar for my Pittsburg show to get all the details. It is my first time in Pittsburg so if you are in the area please visit. There is also a link in the summer schedule for a 10% off coupon you can print out and bring to any of my shows.

Sorry no photos, I hate an all text post, I will make up for it next time.
