Gettin' Ready to Get Crabby...

I never got around to working any further on my first Fat Book Swap entry this weekend. In my excitement to get started, I apparently had a momentary lapse of reason. My DH reminded me that I have not one but TWO shows in the next seven days. I’m doing a private trunk show Wednesday night and then participating in the Blue Crab Festival Memorial Day weekend in Palatka. This will be my first time showing at the Blue Crab Festival--which reportedly draws more than 200,000 people over the three-day weekend--and my first time doing a three-day show, so I thought I might better beef up my inventory! I have a large collection of beads I’ve been hoarding, so I’ve decided to turn some of them into simple, casual pendants. With gas nearing $4.00 a gallon, I know I’d have a hard time splurging on one of my Showstopper pieces right now, so I thought I’d add some more affordable pieces to my line. Here’s a sample! Just one gorgeous bead jazzed up with sterling silver wire and Swarovski crystals, all wrapped up with a leather cord. Whatcha think?

And BTW, I'm sure I'm a little behind the curve on this, but the guy who invented the new peel back resealable Oreo bag? Genius! My morning fix has become much easier! Like this post? Click here to sign up for free weekly email reminders. Click here for the Happy Shack Designs website.
