Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

It's so nice to have an extra day and have Sunday feel like a Saturday all over again!! We just made a quick run to Big Lots (no longer called Odd Lots). I believe there are certainly still some "odd" lots there, but I like odd, so it works for me!!

I have given into temptation at Big Lots over the last couple of months and bought quite a few multiple-movie packs on DVD. Over the years we have accumulated the 50-movie-pack of classic sci-fi, horror, mystery and drive-in classics. We had pretty good luck with them and found quite a few that we liked.
The "new" movie packs at big lots I recently purchased are the historic figure, detectives and family classics. (Not to mention the best of the Lucy show and Howdy Doody!)....I think it's time to put on the brakes...

Anyway, what I was leading up to was (as I mentioned one day last week) I found beads there too! I went tonight to find yarn or ribbon to tie onto some book marks I made and not only found some nice ribbon for $1 a spool (including Martha Stewart ribbon), I found more BEADS!!

I have seen this strand before at Meijers and Joann's, but for $2 at Big Lots, they were hard to resist!! Perfect timing with fall coming up around the corner.

And NOW, please join me in taking a trip through our fellow bead blogger's worlds to see what they have been up to! Enjoy!! Jewelry Making What's in a name, the name of your jewelry pieces that is? Here are a few tips to consider when naming jewelry you sell through the web.

Lisa, thank you SO MUCH for your kind words and encouragement!!!

I have thought of crocheting with softflex, especially with the new trios. Wouldn't that be pretty? I haven't tried it yet, though. I've got some gold on hand. Just may have to do that today!
