Help me, Obi Wan Beaders, you're my only hope!

My recent email to the EtsyBeadWeavers list...}:P

Sorry, couldn't resist.

So anyway, the buyer for 'Spring in the Forest' ( ), convo'd me with a question that I really don't have a clear cut answer for...

"I was wondering if you also do custom
pieces in the freeform necklace? "


I have never been asked this before, so I have no clue how to go about answering the question. I mean, obviously it would depend on what they have in mind- color, size, beads, etc.

But in terms of pricing, do I get a deposit, what.. I have no answer...

What do YOU do? WHATdo you do? WHAT DO you do? WHAT DO YOU DO????


( I' a little nuts, what can I say)


It's a deal. I got my first FREEFORM PEYOTE Stitch beadwork commission.}:) This is huge for me. Wow. I'm still giddy.}:P

2nd Place is just as nice..

Congrats to AnotherCountry for winning the Etsy BeadWeavers Monthly Challenge for Feb08!

I came in 2nd. Apparently it was a very close race, I lost by 1 vote.

See I don't check the blog during Challenge voting very often. That way, I can be surprised like this. Mind you, I promote the hel out of the Challenges and such, I just don't look at the voting scores after I cast my initial vote, except maybe once or twice (my vote went to Enso's gorgeous piece, incidentaly, and I could have sworn that piece would vastly beat mine, go figure)

I looked at it this morning prior to heading into work (yes, I still have a regular job, it's a 1-2 times a month thing.}:P, means extra money for beads, silks, chainmaille rings and dyes), so knew I'd come in second.

What I didn't know was that AnotherCountry got called away on personal matters and had dropped out of the Challenge before the voting had ended.

It made sense to leave her piece in there, after all, she did create a very cool piece for the Challenge and does deserve every vote she got, that Pony was alot of work!

Because of her withdrawal, the choosing of the Monthly Challenge theme for April fell to me, as 2nd place winner. So I guess I did win, in a round about way.

Pretty cool.

Except now.. I have to think up a theme. And I hadn't put ANY thought into it. After all, I didn't win.}:P

EBWC, next month...

So, next month's Challenge is 'Stormy Weather' and it appears that I'll have 2 entries for this one again.

Towards that end, I had to run to A.C. Moore for some pin backs for one piece.

Me- I need to go to A.C. Moore to get pin backs.

Mark- Pin backs?

Me- Yeah, you know, pin backs.

Mark- *look of uncomprehension* What are pin backs?

Me- You know a pin? Well, it has a pin. back.

Mark- *dawning of understanding* Ohh... I get it.

Me- I'm blind now. The light bulb over your head just blinded me.

Mark- Why didn't you just say you needed a pin?

Me- Because I have pins, upstairs in that square plastic container. I need pin backs.

Mark- Whatever.

Me- You truly are a blonde sometimes, you know that?

Mark- Bite me.

Yeah, it's fun sometimes in my house.}
