Fantasy Shopping Saturday! It's Diva Time!

Today is going to be really interesting! I'm working part of the day at the Maker's Faire Booth at the Henry Ford Village in Dearborn, Michigan as part of the Etsy Team.  The Maker's Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation celebrating artists, inventors and do-it-yourselfers . It's the world's largest DIY festival, covers 2 whole days, family friendly, and has something for everyone!...It's the best place to see the creativity, resourcefulness, inventions, and finished products of the "Maker". But you have access to something very special right here! An online group of ladies who also have the "Lampwork Maker" mindset. The Fire Divas... and you never have to leave your "comfy" chair and PC. Each of these ladies exhibit their own unique creativity, and innovative techniques in glass! Check 'em out! And if you see something you like... click on that buy button! ...and then become a "Maker" with our beads!  Happy shopping!

A Sense of This and a Sense of That...

I'm having a problem sleeping these days... pretty stressed making sure I have enough stock for my next 3 shows which are back to back,  starting with The Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair  which begins on July 20th!   So to relax and get ready for bed I decided to do an Etsy Treasury.    I love doing treasuries and this one was really fun with some great products.  Check it out and let me know your thoughts....

Have a great evening! or rather, Have a great morning!

A Little "Diva" Shopping!

 It's July! Yippee!

July is one of my favorite months. Not just because it's my birthday month, but it's also in my opinion, the epitome of summer..., my garden is "lush" and in  full bloom, my neighbors and I spend time drinking frozen lemonade and sharing "grilled" treats. But July is special in another way as well. It's also the beginning of all my best fine art fairs, all the way through Labor Day! I'll be in full jewelry production mode!  Yippee!

Don't get me wrong...as a Lampworker, I love making beads, but what I love more??--- putting my beads into a  lush-and-fabulous one of a kind work of art. It's the pushing the envelope for that "big bang", for the "atta-girl" or " you rocked that boat!" compliment that drives my creative juices.  So today, instead of focusing on just beads....we're oogling beads and  jewelry from the Fire Divas Etsy and Artfire Shops!  And then???  Shop our beads, make it yours, and then produce your own "you rocked that boat" masterpiece!
