Win A Great ArtFire Shopping Spree For Christmas!

I know, I said it: Christmas!!  It's just around the corner.  Seems like just yesterday I was packing up that darn tree.  Now it's almost time to take it out again.

Well, don't worry, there's still time for that.  Better yet, how about thinking about some holiday shopping instead! And what could be better then a FREE shopping spree.

Some great ArtFire Studios have gotten together to have a great contest to Find Santa and win some spending cash on ArtFire.  The best part is that you can find really great handmade items that are so totally unique that you may want to keep them all to yourself ;)

All Wired Up

And not just on coffee.  On wire, real wire! Mainly copper.  I love copper for it's earthy color and feeling.  Yes, I do believe copper "feels" earthy! lol

Coil wrapping always baffled me.  I always wondered how can that fine and flimsy wire stay wrapped on the fatter wire? How?  Well, instead of wondering I would just have to give it a try.  And from this came the above pendant.  I am so happy with it.  And best of all, I now know the wire will be perfectly fine, and once it's wrapped it's no longer flimsy!

I am off to get all wired up again. I have a cool tutorial waiting for me.  Stay tuned for more!

Did I Forget to Mention this?

Yep, I did. Sorry about that. But I'm here now to let you know that I have marked down my Halloween lampwork 20%, and the Halloween Jewelry and lined BHBeads are marked down 10%!

That's right. So now is the perfect time to stock up on those ghoulish beads and goodies you've had your eye one for some time now. Click here to go shopping!

Halloween Ghoulishness And Fall Fun

This is my favorite time of year to make lampwork beads. The colors, the whimsy, and the Halloween fun! I know I say every season is my favorite. And I guess that's true. But Halloween has a little extra special something.

This time of year I can let my freaky morbid side show with my finger beads! Totally gross, yet oh so fun. Now there's a twist on "lady fingers", lol. Or, how about some eyeballs. Every wish you had an extra set of eyes?

I've posted some of my ghoulish goodies below. Along with some great fall themed goodies. Enjoy!
Visit my shop to purchase any of these cool items!

What A Great Surprise!

Today I received my email newsletter for Artizen Magazine. It's a really cool ezine featuring all sorts of great artizens. And it's a lot of fun to read, especially since you can just click on a picture and go right to that site, page or item. I love ezines! (I really need a bigger monitor though! lol)

Well, imagine my surprise when I flipped to page 26 and found THIS (go to page 26)! Look, it's ME!!! What a thrill, I'm so excited and honored to be featured in this really great ezine. And what a great write up! I love love love Halloween and this is a really great issue.

One note: My business name, in full, is GlasstasticTreasures. Part of my name was left off, and I want to mention this because there's a really great stained glass artisan who has the name Glasstastic. So please don't get the two of us confused! ;)

Thank you Artizen Magazine! And the rest of you-go sign up for this great ezine!
