I'm Free!!

Well, mostly free, from my wrist brace. I'll wear it at night tonight just to make sure it's 100% for work on Thursday. If all else fails, I did get a new one to wear to work. But even with the brace, I got lots of work done!

I've got nice new packaging for the ceramic coasters and packaged all the old and new ones. They're sealed in shrink wrap and tied with little scraps of lace, fabric, or trim! I did lower the cost on a couple of the sets in my shop as well as posting new pictures of both the old and new coaster sets.

These include Tiana, a new glow-in-the-dark tic tac toe set, two houses, a bass fish, Lightning McQueen, Darth Vader's lightsaber, some Minecraft items, Red Bird, and more!

I just need to photograph the bead items and upload them to the shop still, as well as putting those backs on them.

Check everything out at my craft shop!

My apologies...

My beautiful spools of Lombard S.A. Rayon!! $6 at the flea market!

But I have become hopelessly addicted to Instagram! It has the added convenience of posting directly to my Twitter and Facebook, which takes all the work of updating away! Unfortunately, it doesn't post to the blog, so I'm stuck updating this on my own. I've been up to a lot the last week, though. I've branched out my bead items, and I'll post more on them later. My carpal tunnel syndrome is flaring up, and my wrist brace makes it super hard to type. 
If you'd like to keep up with my updates on a regular basis, follow me on your favorite social network. To the right are links to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.
Knotted Bracelets $2 each
The flea market was a bust today, but I did pick up some gorgeous rayon thread from a former crafter. I meant to use it for a project, but since I couldn't remember what project that was, I decided to pass the time at the flea market making knotted bracelets. I only bought two spools to start with, and once I made my first bracelet and realized how beautiful the rayon was as a bracelet, I went back and bought all the rest and only spent $6! I also bought twelve little skeins of embroidery floss from another lady for only $2. 
Bracelet in progress

I got eight bracelets done at the flea market, and those are posted to my shop. For only @2 each, with FREE shipping, you get a randomly chosen bracelet from the batch in the photos. If you'd like a particular bracelet, just message me to ask about availability. No two of them are alike, but I have a limit of colors, so the one you receive may be similar to another, but still one of a kind!
