And the Boxes Just Keep Coming !

Wow, I have had so many boxes delivered this week - YIKES !! I have been slogging through but have just dented the surface. There's still lots more to come ! Let me show you what there is so far ... and then come back next week for more !
First ... lots of new Sizzix products. The new embossing folders are lovely and the stamp sets are very clever. They have new dies and some fun tools as well. I also have some new stamps from Graphic 45, Hero Arts, and Bo Bunny. Click on the link below to go to the album and click through the photos.

This is what I have unpacked today ... I still have piles of boxes so there will be lots more next week. The mother lode has truly arrived !! lol.

And now in BEAD NEWS !
I have some wonderful new Swarovski products ... pastel pearls, emerald cut beads, "love beads", drops, an amazing crystal Buddha pendant and more.
I made a few samples up and then packaged the materials in case anyone wanted to make one. You will get everything you need except the stringing wire in the package - and you'll save money ! The cost of buying the individual pieces is much more. In each package you get the beads/crystals, spacers, crimps, crimp covers, lobster claw, and chain extender.
This is the first bracelet . I used the new "love beads" in various pinks. It is such a dainty , sparkly piece. The materials are $15.99 . If you buy all the materials separately, it will cost you over $25. it's a deal !! lol.

The next bracelet uses the new Swarovski pastel pearls - they are so pretty !!!
Doesn't that say spring ? The materials for this one are just $5.99 ! Or you can buy the pearls by the each as well if you have another project in mind.

There is no way to capture the beauty of Swarovski crystals in a photo - you really have to come in and see them ! But this will give you an idea of what has just arrived.

And then I bagged up some bulk seed beads and bugle beads. This is a great way to buy them if you do bead looming or weaving, native bead art, or use them in sewing or knitting projects. Many of the bags are just $2 for 50g. Significant savings ! Click below to see them all.

And lastly, I cleaned out bead trays and bagged up beads. (yes, the heat sealer & I were best friends all week. ) These bags are all $2 and they are filled with everything from lampwork beads to firepolished to wooden ... and so on. Again, some great bargains !! Why not grab a few bags and make up some earrings or a fun bracelet ?

Here are a few quick earrings that I put together as a donation to a local fundraiser ... it doesn't take much to make a fun pair of earrings !

So that's it for this week. Trust me there will be lots more next week. And the week after ...
Hope to see you Friday !!!
