Cabana Boy Beads Are Coming Soon!

Cabana Boy Blue Lilypads

Even though I'm not quite ready to post this month's Boutique beads, I still wanted to show a little preview of what I've been working on! I know I say this about nearly every series I work with, but Cabana Boy beads really ARE my favorite color combination. They are as bright, fun and downright yummy as an umbrella drink on a summer's day.

As for the reason why I'm not ready yet - here's a little word to the wise (and someone please remind me of this in the future when it comes up again) - never plan to get a week's worth of studio time in during Spring Break when the kids are home! It just doesn't ever pan out the way I intend for it to. *sigh*

So. When will I have beads ready? The answer is: I don't have an answer. Yet. Let me get back to you on that. Make sure you're on my mailing list (link to join is on the top right column of this blog under my picture and profile) because I'll be sending out a Boutique notification e-mail the night before the beads will be posted. For example, if I decide to post beads on Monday, I'll send the Boutique e-mail out on Sunday night. I'll also post a blog update to announce the Boutique date, so you can stay informed that way as well.

I'll share more sneak peeks in the coming days, so be sure to check back in!

Jena I totally hear you on the school break thing! My kids are off this week too and I had such big plans for myself! Needless to say I had to stay up until almost 2am last night to get my own stuff done so that the daylight hours could be spent fulfilling the kids every need! :) Love the Cabana Boy beads, the colors are really so fun!

Jena your beads are so lovely. They *almost* make me want to take up beading, but the last thing I need is another hobby...And, late comment, but I LOVE your chicken coop! Almost too lovely for those feathery friends. I think a Blythe doll could happily take up residence there instead.
