I’ve had a few folks dropping a line with concern that I haven’t blogged in some time, and “are you alright?”

Thanks for the concern. 🙂

Sparkling Pumpkin Pendant

Sparkling Pumpkin Pendant

Yes, I’m alright. Fine and dandy, in fact. Just been a little pre-occupied with school starting up for the youngest, wedding plans for the oldest, and starting prep for shows that seem to be non-stop until Thanksgiving. Plus the myriad of other “stuff” that seems to just pile up on top of everything else.

Until I get back in the swing of things (which will hopefully happen soon!), take a gander at a few “older” articles and projects that are perfect for fall and this time of year!

Sparkling Pumpkin Pendant is perfect for fall or Halloween – easy to make and a great little gift. And what youngster wouldn’t love a BOO bracelet for the month of October?!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it’s right around the corner. Why not order the supplies you need to make our fancy Think Pink BCA charm or a classic BCA Stretch Bracelet?

Attending some craft fairs this fall? Be sure you print out a copy of Beading Help Web’s popular Craft Show Checklist before you pack up! I’ve been showing for 8 years and still use it!

Happy fall!!!
