New Heart & Stars Kandy Beads

Hoorah!! A new product line for Rave Beads has arrived.  I ordered these heart and star beads coz they're so pretty and when they arrived I checked them under the black light and guess what?!!!  They glow.  Cool.  Now my kandy products include neon pony beads, rainbow alphabet cubes, PLUR bead sets, heart and star shaped beads and all my bracelet designs.  I am keen to do some video tutorials but don't have a camera at the moment.  I'm also working on getting a reliable supply of glow in the dark pony beads.  Oooh AND looking forward to my order of silicone glow in the dark wrist bands.

Glow in the Dark Beads and Pride Belts

Finally!  More beads have arrived.  I now have glow-in-the-dark beads to add to my product range.  Monnie has already gone ahead and made up a few kandy bracelets with them.   They look awesome!  We have pony beads as well as shaped beads.  Not to mention the alphabet and PLUR beads I received the other week - there are so many combinations of kandy jewellery we can make now it's insane.

I have also ordered 2 dozen rad studded belts I came across in rainbow pride colours.  I have had a hard time sourcing products and materials in these 6 colours but would love to add to my gay pride range so I am stoked I found these belts.

As usual, soooo much work to do so I'd better get back to yet.  Cheerio!!

Soooo much mail

Spent $50 at the post office today sending customers their items.  And that's just the stuff I didn't have stamps or satchels for!  They know me at the post office, very nice people - lucky cos I spend so much time there and always get stuff wrong.  My scales broke so I can't weigh anything.  But all this is a good sign that people must like my shop or they wouldn't be buying stuff.

Still waiting on my new beads.  I'm not sure I know anyone else who would get so excited about a big box of loose plastic beads.  Is it just me?

The yard work continues.  I am injured - blisters and cuts - yesterday I nearly took my finger off.  Tomorrow I will mow and do the edges and it should look all pretty and tidy for when the boys get home from overseas.  Dan and Aaron have been away in Europe for five weeks.  We miss them!  It's not home without the boys.  I will wash Danny's car for him too.  So many jobs!
