700 Etsy Hearts!

I just received my 700th Etsy heart from The Sproutz Store. Wouldn't you know, this shop is full of one of my favorite things - FABRIC! So now I have to decide which fabric to purchase - to thank her for being my 700th! Here's some examples I have to choose from, but it's going to be a tough choice as there are 26 pages of fabric for sale in her shop!

If you love fabric as much as I do, you're sure to love browsing in The Sproutz Store!

Some Beauties Created in Germany

Where have I been and what have I been doing? Amazingly, I haven't been anywhere outside my four walls, but I have been busy.

To start with, I've been caught up with making dichroic glass cabochons. I just can't get enough of them. And while I'd like to do beadwork around each and every one of them, I only have 2 arms and there are just not enough hours in the day. So I started selling them in my Etsy shop.

Here are the first two cabochons that were purchased by Sabine Lippert from Germany.

I just love what she did with them. Her beadwork is always unique and I think she really shows off the cabs wonderfully!

You can see more of her work on her blog, Try-To-Be-Better or on her website, Try-To-Be. She also just opened an Etsy shop, Try-To-Be-Unique, where she sells her patterns. I am going to be one of her customers for sure!

Stay tuned for more dichroic cab updates and some information on the process of making them.
