Join the Book Club

Do you crush on beads?  Is that too weird?  I'm crushing on these little books from Jubilee.  They are so sweet and tiny and have little dog-eared pages - yes, it's definitely puppy love! 

I so badly want to do a holiday market or two - but I'm just not able to find one that fits me here in SA.  I should look into some places in Austin - but of course, it's probably already too late.  Sigh - oh well Etsy may have to be my craft fair this season.  I have several lines of jewelry planned, like the little Book Club pendants above - I love thinking up the titles!

Are you starting to plan out your holiday selling season?  Etsy has a boot camp you can join.  Here is the 1st newsletter and checklist.

Squeeing on the books! That reminds me that I have some little books from Esther in France that need a good home.

I am thinking about the boot camp but I fear that I won't have enough time to get it all in. I do have one show in October and then the Gallery for the holidays and another one in our town so that might just about do it for me. But Etsy is really singing her siren song!

Thanks for sharing your inspiration today!
Enjoy the day!

Love the book beads! You did such a great job of making cute little necklaces with them that I HAD to snag one for me :o) I love how they turned out - and they're not so big that I wouldn't wear them :o)

Just catching up on your blog. How time flies, and I have missed so many posts of your lovely beads. The book pendants are delightful!!!!!

I'm desparately looking for a holiday venue too, since I wasted two full days this past weekend trying to sell my jewelry at an arts and crafts show. The people were definately NOT looking for quality jewelry--but more along the lines of crochet doilies, yard art and cheap mass made jewelry. I spent a pretty penny on my booth, and didn't even come close to making it back. Ugh....painful!

Enjoy your week!

I am so glad you are back to blogging - have missed your's. And you are back with a vengence - all kinds of new things. Those books are so adorable and I love the head pins.

I just love those books! I am an avid reader so I will have to hope that you have some necklaces left when I get paid. I am discovering that owning a house is a money pit but overall it is so worth it.
