"I need somebody...Help! Not just anybody!"

OK - Now I am going to have that song stuck in my

I am finally feeling better and I have a new bracelet to show you. I am really proud of
this piece as I made it "on the fly" out of my own head. I am really happy with the over all effect and look of the piece. But I need your help:

What would you pay for this piece? If you are a designer - what would be a fair price?

It needs a name - please help me name it.

Doing a little happy dance!

Well - I have had a good Etsy weekend for a couple of reasons. First of all, an Etsy seller by the name of Noah's Ark Collection picked my "Hip To Be Square" earrings for a treasury that they created. (By the way - she has some wonderful animal items in her shop - mainly beads and charms - I have spotted a couple of beads there that may have to find their way into future pieces that I make.) I am terribly excited about this as this is only the second treasury that I have been featured in. To make things even more exciting, while I was at work yesterday, this treasury actually made it to the front page of Etsy. This is hugely exciting for me - I have never made it to the front page of Etsy, so I am really happy about this. But as my luck would have it - I was at work when this happened (of course) and I guess that the treasury had *just* made it to the front page of Etsy when their system crashed - so although it should have been there for a little while, it was only there about 5 minutes (bummer).

So, I decided to share my news with my online friends. And one of them liked my earrings so much that she bought them (thanks Cyn)!! And now Noah's Ark Collection was kind enough to choose another pair of earrings from my shop to feature.

I am showing you pictures of both treasuries - the original one that made it to the front page - and the second with the "new" earrings.

All in all - this has been a really great Etsy weekend for me! Do I dare hope that the second pair of earrings may sell as well???

It's voting time....

No - it's too early to cast your vote for the presidential elections, but if you would like to give yourself some practice, it is time for everyone to vote on the monthly challenge for the Etsy Bead Weavers team. There are some really amazing pieces created for this month's challenge of "A Midsummer's Night Dream." Please take a few moments to check out the wonderful bead weaving available there and vote for your favorite!

I was not able to enter this month's challenge - but there are so many beautiful listings that I want to encourage everyone to visit and vote!

Just a quick update here:

I have not been doing much here as of late as I have come down with a nasty case of bronchitis - something I have not had in years. I have been spending a lot of time resting and a little time creating when I feel up to it. Hopefully, I will have a new bracelet for everyone to look at soon.
