Trunk Show March 1st and 2nd 2013

I've had several people inquire about purchasing items from my truck show when out of town. If you can't make it to the show and would like to make a purchase, please call Ornamentea after 11:00 a.m. on Friday or Saturday. 919.834.6260

They will have staff available that can be on the phone with you as a "personal shopper" and are willing to text pictures, etc. to help you shop from a distance. If you see something pictured that is already sold, you can let them know the item/s you are interested in and I'll make it for you after the show. I'll have print outs of the pictures to help with clarity.

Here is a link to Ornamentea's web site which includes more Elaine Ray beads and pendants, along about every beading / stringing / crafting / creating supplies you could ever wish for. If you see anything you like there, it can be added to your phone order - just let your personal shopper know. Remember, free shipping for orders over $50.00.

Thanks again to all of you!

Feel free to leave comments here, but no orders please.  You need to call Ornamentea at 919.834.6260 to place an order so they can get your shipping and billing info.

Attempt at re-growing celery

Follow up from my Pinterest board This I will try and let you know how it turns out:  

Regrowing celery for me has been a bust.  I have tried low sun, bright sun, inside and out without with the same results.  As you can see, the plant continues to grow, but the stalks are very thin and consistently die off as new stalks emerge.  I tried never letting the dirt dry out and letting the dirt dry out between watering   The dirt was new dirt from bag of potting soil, so I don't think that poor soil was the problem either.  Anyway, this was a "busted" for me.  It would be interesting to see if re-growing celery resulted in edible produce for anyone else and how they made it happen.  

The original pinned post can be see here:  Even though this didn't work out for me, I'd still recommend taking a look at their site - good info to be had.

You hold my heart in your hand

During the next couple of weeks I am dedicated to only making items for my trunk show at Ornamentea on March 1st and 2nd.  This pendant was my kick off to new items and bringing back some old shapes and colors that I haven't visited in a while.  I've told myself I'll not work on any items that are currently on Ornamentea's web site for these two weeks to keep myself on track.  This is going to be great fun, I have 5 pages of ideas to test out.  In reality, as I work on each new shape more ideas jump out of the clay and the list goes on and on.  Stay tuned for pictures as the ideas progress.
