Ok, so this is SUCH an over due blog! I’ve been planning on writting this for days and for some reason it just keeps not getting written. In my defense – life has been insane lately.
One of my goals has been to review items that I buy on etsy so that you guys get to see wonderful things that I get! Free publicity for the sellers right?
The first is actually not beads. Despite the title of my blog 😛 I got some AWESOME lip balm from rachel323. Here’s the pic she had up to advertise it:
I forgot to take a picture of the actual lip balm, but I can say that I love it! Rachel was really sweet when my original purchase got lost in the mail. Not only did she send me an new tube, she sent an extra one! I was so surprised! And honored 😀 It’s not a scent that I like, BUT I’m going to give it one of my best friends and I can’t WAIT to see how she likes it 🙂 I definitely will be buying more when I have money 🙂 I’m thinking blackberrry, cappuccino, and fresh lime…
Now on to the beads!
My friend who runs breathofthedragon recently put up some beads on destash – and I snapped ’em up! Not sure yet exactly what I’m going to do with them, but they are gorgeous shells 🙂
I recently custom ordered some beads to go with a pendant I traded for with my friend gogokioko:
The beads are shaped like coffee beans! They are reddish and I’ve got a few ideas of how I’ll use them with some wood beads I have to make a wonderfully addictive necklace 🙂
I also bought these from the same seller, crazyladybeads. I don’t know precisely what I’m going to do with them yet. I might put them in a fancy bracelet or I might make some spendy and fancy earrings…
Lastly, but definitely not least I went CRAZY in justDESTASHbeads and bought WAY more than I should – but the price was sooooo righ! Imagine my joy when I opened the pack and saw all of these…
Oh yes I’m a happy girl 🙂 The only down side is…I had to leave most of my beads in Ellensburg when I came home to stay with my parents for a week while Moses finished packing up our apartment 😦 I’ve been keeping myself busy with weaving projects and doing designing! And, the good news is, I’ll have plenty to keep myself busy with over the next month or two as I hope and pray for orders to come in to replenish my bank account!
