I just want to add a note to say how extremely happy and humbled I am by so many new and returning customers during my Cyber Monday Sale. Thank you everyone! I can not follow my dreams without you. I appreciate your support so much!
I'm getting into the spirit and am offering a 20% discount until Friday, December 6, 2019 for CyberMonday. Please visit my Etsy Shop VickiBeadsandLeather for handmade one of a kind gifts.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
It is so beautiful outside. Spring is definitely here. Our daffodils are in full bloom. I have done some spring cleaning in the studio and am so inspired for new spring and summer fashion. I've been beading a lot of earrings with seed beads. They are Native American inspired using porcupine quills and beads. Here is a pair recently made. Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop.
Exciting news. My new shop and remodel is getting closer to completion. I'm looking forward to the day when I can once again find all my tools and supplies I need for creating "one of a kind" articles. It's been a long time coming and will be greatly appreciated. If you have any ideas for the first project in my new place I'd love to hear them.
I made this cute little purse recently. It was inspired by summer fun and sunshine! It is a lemon yellow fold over clutch. I fell in love with this beautiful soft leather the moment I touched it. Isn't it so bright and happy looking?
So excited to get together with my friends and artists from Lake Tahoe for a Holiday Open House. We have been having fun getting ready for the big night making a lot of new items. Veronica Lichter artist has some beautiful painted ornaments and Julie Water Drop Jewels has wonderful jewelry. Here are a few of mandolin and guitar straps I made for the event. I love the strength of these straps and they are so colorful!
Is it just me or does it seem like after Halloween the days just fly by. I've been trying to keep up with posting new items on Etsy and making new items as well as mailing out sold packages. Sometimes this one women show is difficult. Lists, lists, lists and more lists are what keeps me more focused (and a little meditation). So, as my list indicates, I will be outdoors shooting photos of new products before the weather changes again. Hope your day is productive!
Had a little setback with my photo editing and tagging. I tried to update my computer and lost Picasa. I have been using Picasa for a long time and had it figured out. I couldn't download it. Picasa has been removed and replaced with Google Photos. So bummed. Now it looks like I will have to spend hours learning new software. Ugh. If anyone knows of a good photo editing program I should use please let me know. What I loved about Picasa was that I could add my keyword tags to the photos. I haven't found anything like that yet.
In the meantime here is a little something I made recently using Pendleton fabric and leather. Thanks for visiting my blog!
