Pin It I just returned from Beadfest in Philly where I took a Boro class & fell in love all over again. I'm chomping at the bit now to get a bigger torch & oxygen concentrator that will melt Boro rods. My DH had a canary when I told him the news so I am doing some creative fund raising, LOL! I've decided to offer 25% off on anything on my site from now until September 10th.

I found someone selling the torch I'm interested in & someone else selling the oxygen concentrator so everything is right with the world, except of course coming up with the funds for these major purchases, ;-). If taking advantage of the 25% off sale, you'll need to e-mail me at lajewelrydesigns @ (remove the spaces) & I will invoice you with the discounted pricing.

best party ever!!!

Pin It
I've become close friends with 2 local bead buddies. We get together to bead about once a month. We bead, we laugh, we eat. Is there more to life ;-)? Well, we were supposed to do a party together this past weekend, Soiree we called it. It was hosted by Linda's step daughter. Unfortunately Jean couldn't make it. Her MIL had brain surgery earlier in the week.

Well, Lisa, Linda's daughter, put out a beautiful spread. I was feeling guilty at how much money she must've spent on the food. I'm not sure how many people were actually there, but there was a steady stream and each one was nicer than the next. They enjoyed looking at our jewelry, trying them on &......BUYING!!!! We came away with just shy of $1000 for the night. Now all we need to do is find more folks wanting to host a party. Here's a photo with my side of the table:
