New Supplies Added!! and other news...

I just updated my website with some great supplies.. The list is small but growing..
I know their are some great things on there, that you can't find in your local shops. These items are also available in the shop as well, and there are so many colors and varieties available so if you see something you like, but not the right color, just let me know!!!

Grand Opening was last weekend, and it went great, it was really great to meet so many new people, and so many people interested in beading! Who ever knew there are so many of us out there! I am going to add some pictures of grand opening, it was really a great time!

I am starting a list of some people interested in joining or teaching some classes...
Both for stationery and for jewelry making... I am excited to start this in September, and I'm even looking to start an afterschool program for children! So that will be exciting! So if anyone is in the area and is interested, I'd love to hear from you...

Sorry it's been so long... BUT I HAVE BIG NEWS!!!

Well I have been super super busy.. as I'm sure everyone else has too!

So, First BIG NEWS... To start I got engaged.. whooo hoooo!!!! Now the planning begins, although the amount of work I'm sure to come is a lot, I can't wait, it's something every little girl has dreams about.. and I am more than ready... I am going to look at some reception/ceremony places this friday, so that's exciting, hopefully I can pick a date.. still thinking about fall or spring.. we will see!!!

The other BIG news.. well I finally sucked it up and did it.. I rented a store, yup scary yet exciting!!! It is in ranlo, nc.. which if you are from around here, you know its pretty small town.. but its right next to gastonia... the good news is that the only competing stores in a 20+ mile radius is Michaels and Hobby Lobby.. and I am carrying completely different beads than the both of them.. so I am super excited about that...I will upload pictures once it is complete, I am finishing up the painting, decorating and preparing now.. and hope to have it up and running in the next couple of weeks.. I will also be selling some supplies online at my website as well... I found some great beads that are hard to find, and some great prices on products, so I am sure to help beat most prices! If you have something in mind, let me know, I may be able to get it cheaper!!!

So look out for that.. and I will be updating as I go along...
I hope everyone else is doing well, and enjoying the summer!!!
What has everyone else been up to?? Any new projects??
