Had a consuming craving for bacon after our lovely bike ride but had no tomato (don’t really like them anyway) and had to figure out how to make it a little more well rounded rather than just snarfing the bacon right off the paper towels as they drained.
Planning another shop update momentarily, spent yesterday experimenting with Pixie Dust- a tricksy powder that lends a magical shimmer to beads. Don’t know why I’ve never used it before now, but so glad I finally took the plunge. They’re a little hard to properly photograph and convey the shimmery metallic look of the beads.
Going up today on Etsy: Apologies for the somewhat blurry photos, I really need to figure out the settings on hubby’s little Nikon..or figure out which camera I need for the business.
The Outer Banks were gorgeous, so glad we made the drive and stayed the night. We even had a rainbow greet us as we made our first trip to the beach. It’s still the off season and it was basically deserted and the 2 yo disturbed no one.
Thought I’d edit a few more for the shop while the little man is napping, up on Etsy shortly:
New work going up shortly in the shop:Surely I’m not the only one who loves the colors together in this trio? *slurp* These will be slightly discounted since the two smaller ones were chipped due to my aggressive cleaning..d’oh! Doesn’t affect the bead, just makes them less than perfect. Oh, oh- love the bead caps on this one and the crackling is superb. Had a hard time letting go of these capped and cored hollows, so luscious but hard to capture on camera.
