Beads Gone Wild

Beads are really going wild at Crystal Creations Bead Institute, Beads Gone Wild.
Liisa has been cranking out some fabulous new classes!.. The Latest is "Crystal Buckle Bracelet". It has the look of a very expensive cat collar. I think I will have to make one for Linkin and Lilly (even though they aren't cats)... All they have had to wear is a bead that Dallas Lovett made for them when he was here last year. We are all excited over the fact that he is coming back to teach this year. Check out his projects either on line or come and see the samples in the shop.. They are marvelous.

Sherry Serafini agreed to do a second purse class.. but that is almost sold out too. If you were hoping to get in on her class call right away.

There are a lot of photos up on facebook of my son and his friends in Stuart Little.
Some are of the show and then quite a few of the kids having fun for the camera.
Someone also put up some footage on youtube of the show. I guess you just go to youtube and type in Stuart Little.

Remember, now is the time to start preparing your holiday gifts. We just ordered in (as much as I could gather) parts to make the xmas tree earrings, and pendants. Consider trying your hand at holiday ornaments. Liisa and I thought it would be fun to make some ping pong ball size. It will go faster..
Oh.... I just had an even better idea....But You'll have to come to the shop and ask me about it. I am so excited I am going to start working on it right now...
Happy Beading from the Bead Goddess

Stuart Little, Guest Teachers

I think many of you know that Erkki (my son) is in Stuart Little The Musical, up in the Gardens at the Borland Center. They have 3 more performances Friday night at 7:00pm, Sat at 2:00 and 7:00. The kids really did a great job and it is very entertaining. Erkki's love is acting. We went to Miami today for a movie audition.

Things have been really great at the bead shop. We have all the samples in for the guest teachers.. Well, we have Maggie Meister's, Tracy Stanley's and Dallas Lovett's. They are really GREAT, and there are a few seats in each of those classes.
We know what Sherry Serafini will be teaching and the class is full already, so I am going to see what I can do about getting her to extend her visit. Liisa came up with a few new classes. The "Mysterious Moon" and "Victorian Beads" are both really fun!

The other day I started worrying about all the "silver fillings" in my mouth and how I should get them out. I felt one crumble and then freaked out thinking that I might be swallowing some and causing grave damage...
I went to the dentist and 3 hours later all the silver from 3 teeth are gone and caps ready to go on. I am amazed that years of worrying about it got resolved in 3 hours... oh and 1 credit card.

I know school starts Monday so I hope all of you mothers will stop in to see us.... It's time to start making those holiday gifts, and we have plenty of new ideas!
