I went to the PO today and sent the orders that I have gotten over the past few days, including some of the octopus beads from the pic below. I have been listing the others that she didn't buy in my shop tonight. I think I'll try and get some of the Halloween ones listed tonight as well and then if I have time (and the energy) I will try and make some more this evening now that the weather is a bit cooler....all the way down to 94 today! :(

Here are the octopus beads that I have been working on. I am really happy with the way they turned out. I have a mish mash other beads that I just finished cleaning tonight and have not had time to take pictues of but maybe tomorrow I will. I have everything from frogs to Halloween beads to snowmen! Funny how my brain works sometimes! :)

Doesn't it just figure that just about the time things start picking up for me in my etsy shop, I will have to start back to school and probably won't have much time for bead making for a while?! I had my 20th (and 21st!) sale today; one from a repeat customer and one from a new customer! It is always so exciting to sell something, I still find it amazing that people are willing to give me money for something that I make and have so much fun at. I wish sometimes that I could figure out a way for this to be my full time job....then again, maybe not. I really do enjoy being a nurse most of the time, it's just that lampwork is so much less stressful! Other than the occasional upset over a bead that breaks, or a glass being out of stock when I want it...or being WAY to expensive to even consider buying, there really isn't any stress involved. Really I guess that is what it has become to me is a sort of a stress release, and it serves it's purpose well. Alright, enough ranting tonight, off for some more stress release! :)
