Look What the Clouds Brought In

Aw summertime... For most, I'm sure you think summertime in California has to be gorgeous with the beaches and mountains. It can't get more than 70 or 80 degrees there right? Ha! You have been watching too much tv or movies. Or perhaps if you have ever visited California it was coastal and not beyond a mountain range. Most of California is a desert which means it can get up to 100-115 degrees during the day and no cooling off in the evenings. Where I live is closer to the desert area so dry, hot, heat is what you get. There are days you see shade under a tree and think ah relief. Further from the truth, there is no wind so dry, hot, heat even in the shade. Well last week we got a break and there was a very overcast and cloudy day. It was actually too cold to wear shorts and I was really wishing I had a sweatshirt. It felt like a normal day at the beach. But I pressed on and took 647 pictures of gemstones. Was able to take some pictures of gemstones that have a high glossy coating and have been really hard to get a shot without all the glare. So this next week I will be re-doing some of the pictures of listings and also listing some new beads for you to enjoy. Here is just a small sample:

My Little Corner of Facebook

YaY!! Excited to announce my own little corner of Facebook now has it's own official url. Thanks to all who have been "liking" Beads2string on Facebook, http://facebook.com/Beads2string is now alive and kicking. You know I literally could not have done it without you. It will look more professional being able to use this nice, neat url instead of that long jibberish one don't you think?

Well that's it for today, nice, short and sweet. Nothing else to see here until next time. Go on... have a fabulous day.

To a New Year and Changes

This year is going to be fabulous I can already tell. Or at least I'm bound and determined to make it go that way haha. Am very excited to soon be introducing some more flowers to the bead stores. Including some pretty flower cabochons, so be looking for the pretties coming in February. There will also be some new charms coming your way too.

For those of you who may not be following me on Twitter I've had some changes going on this past year. One particular is a new computer due to the death of the old one. With that, went pictures of all the beads and findings in the stores. So it is time to get an overhaul, revamp, chachachachanges with the look of the store pictures. You will be seeing a lot of colors soon with the backgrounds of the product pictures. Some can already be seen with the findings category. Hope you like the changes coming your way.
