We’ve got a friend visiting from out of town this week who’s offered to help us run errands Monday afternoon, so we’d like to be able to afford to do so and stock up on a few things that are normally difficult for us to come by! This would help us out a lot, as many of the buses here stop early and I have to do a lot of walking — with chronic pain and a cane for back support — to run certain errands on a regular basis… I love walking when I’m feeling up to it, but don’t always feel up to it when I need to do it. Anyway, that’s why this particular whopper of a discount will only be available for 24 hours. 😉

There are still earrings available in my shop that have been marked down as low as $4.99. You can use the code on them as well!

Here’s a look at some of the new pieces that I posted yesterday; as I type, all of them are still available. I’d love to hear what you think! Which is your favorite?

New baubles & fundraiser ending!

Now that hubby’s been bouncing back a bit, I’ve been able to jump back into beading mode, and I’ve got some unique new baubles to share with you. Here are the pieces added to my shop yesterday, along with a custom necklace.

After another few days working on pieces for the shop — some of which may also end up in grab bags next month — I’ll be focusing on catching up on custom orders again. I’ll also be going to the post office this coming week and will be announcing a flash sale for tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that if you’re looking for a deal.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHere are the new pieces that I worked on last night! I’ll be listing them in my shop today… As each item is listed, I post them on Twitter and Pinterest. I try to keep up with Instagram as well, but sometimes I fall behind because I get frustrated typing on a little touchscreen. I also post the new pieces to Facebook within 24 hours of being added to my shop, but I have to spread those out or none of my posts are seen by anyone, so they’re not usually posted immediately after the pieces are listed. So you have several options for following along!

I’d love to hear what you think of these pieces, and which is your favorite. (My reach on Facebook has been sinking again, so if you have a minute to join the conversation over there and perhaps show some of my other recent posts some love, that would mean the world to me.)

Our fundraiser has just a few days left, and the prospects for meeting our goal are not looking good. If you’d like to take a look, please visit the campaign page and consider whether you may be able to contribute. There are some awesome rewards available for everyone who does! I’ll be planning another fundraiser soon, most likely in the form of a sale event or auction, to help us get the funds that we need to replace AJ’s work laptop and get a platform so that our bed is no longer a mattress on the floor. (We are incredibly grateful to have a decent mattress, but it’s hard for us to get up and down with a mattress on the floor, both having chronic pain.)

Thank you all for being here, being you, and being awesome! I am so blessed to have such an amazing network of friends and supporters, and I am so grateful that you’re here.

Much love and many blessings,
Bri

Introducing “Mommy & Me” sets!

Katt got in touch yesterday and convinced me to take her order for this set — a custom order for her tiny princess who loves “Mommy’s pretties” — because she wanted to help with my fundraising for new eyeglasses.

Thanks to Katt, I’ve decided to open custom orders on a very limited, temporary basis. Please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to inquire about a piece! I’d also love to hear what you think of this set, made with peach pearls, rose quartz, pink glass crystals and pewter pendant/accents. I’m happy to report that Katt loves them!

Quartz, also known as rock crystal, is the most universally known and plentiful mineral. Quartz enhances the energy of other stones around it and is also excellent for use in finding balance, clarity and harmony. It is also used for healing, channeling, clearing negative energy and protection. Its energies can aid in meditation, divination, channeling, manifestation and more.

Labradorite is a wonderful stone for protection, sealing energetic leaks, intuition, working on psychic gifts and connecting with your inner/higher self. This stone helps with maintaining a positive outlook and healing from addiction. It is an often-favored crystal among shamans, healers, energy workers and psychics.

Rose quartz is a powerful but gentle healing stone and can specifically help with encouraging self-awareness, dreamwork, trust, harmony and dispelling negativity. It is also often used in fertility magic.

Rhodonite is named after the Greek word for rose, because of its pink and reddish hues. It has a strong connection to the heart chakra, so it is wonderful for balancing and healing related to emotions, relationships, etc. Use to foster unconditional love and forgiveness, and for emotional balance in general. Wear to help you hold onto patience and calm during stressful or traumatic periods; it can also be quite helpful in fostering self esteem, self confidence, self love, and encouraging compassion. Darker shades of rhodonite have been reported to be especially helpful with issues related to hormonal imbalance. Some find the stone helpful with inflammation, arthritis, lung ailments, fertility and joint-related issues. Also known to help with detoxification and skin problems. Meditate with rhodonite to help you discover and learn how to use your inherent gifts. Eases impatience and helps ground negative energy away.

It is a wonderful stone for calming, relaxation, forging trust and finding balance. This is a great stone to help you make your way through a period of transition. Wear to foster self-love, patience with oneself and others, success in business, and purging of negative or harmful emotion that no longer serves you. Use to ease symptoms of depression, anxiety and other potentially debilitating mental health issues — but be warned that the effects can be swift and intense, and only wear it when you are ready to activate its energy in your life. Can help ease hormone imbalances, immune system issues and more; can also be used for general healing. Wonderful for dreamwork and forging connections with the divine, spirits and our higher selves.
