History Hop reminder and other things

Ahh, my poor neglected blog.

I've just sent out a reminder to everyone in the History Hop (who left me an email address or had one on their profile - check your spam! :)). And for those who I couldn't contact and are following my blog, the reveal date is on June 1st, but you can post at any time during the day that is convenient.

Don't forget you can schedule the post, if you think you'll be busy on that day. When you write your blog post click on "Schedule" on the right hand side of the screen. Select the date and time (it's usually in Pacific time, for some reason), click "Done", and publish. Double check it's there on the day - sometimes blogger can be funny like that.

I hope you're all enjoying the History Hop and designing. I know I can't wait to see what you make!

I've been really busy making beads, commissions, working on the blog hop, and a new magazine project. It's an e-magazine that will focus on art beads and one of a kind jewelry. So far I have contacted various artists who have given me permission to show photos of their work in small gallery sections, with direct links back to their shops. Just in case you feel the need for those beautiful beads.

There will also be artist profiles - some short, some more in depth, as well as tutorials on jewelry projects, handmade findings, and/or beads. This is just the first issue, so who knows what it could turn into! I find so many jewelry designers and bead makers inspiring, so I thought it would be great to give you a peek into it.

The e-mag is totally free and will be available on June 1st (barring anything unforeseen). I'm really excited about it and hope you'll enjoy reading and sharing in some of my inspiration.


  1. I didn't get an email. Can you please check, if I'm on the list? Thanks! Sent you an email to make sure you got my addy.

    1. Yes, you're on the list. I just emailed you to confirm. Thanks :)

  2. Oh no! I missed this one! I remember seeing the last one, and wanted to join up this time around. I think this is my favorite theme for a hop!! Have a great hop this weekend :)
