Autumn has arrived and the weather is crisp and fair.There was the most glorious full moon last night and I just had to grab my camera and walk up on the mountain to take some pictures.Will add the best one at the bottom of the blog!
I started my first sale in my Etsy shops yesterday.I found the process rather confusing but somehow managed to achieve what I had started. 20% off all stock in crystalriverbeads.etsy.com and silverpuss.etsy.com.
My friend,Debra,who makes glass beads has opened her first Etsy shop.She has a small selection of handmade beads in store but will be adding more this week.She has already had some sales so a good start.
I have been working on some new designs and have started planning my first projects for my book on wirework and mixed-media.I hope to collaborate with Debra on some of my pieces.Really looking forward to putting my ideas into action.I hope I have enough time to fit in some Christmas shopping and want to go into Bath for a day sometime soon.There are two very good bead shops there.So good hunting!Love to all my beading buddies,Anne.
