BTW - Bead Table Wednesday

Okay - I've been slacking off with the blog posts since returning from vacation, but I wanted to get back in the swing of things here and show you what's on my table today for Bead Table Wednesday.

I got these gorgeous beads in the mail today from Jeannie for the Echo Creative Club Design Team Reveal that's happening again on the 25th of next month - pretty huh?

I have no idea what I'm going to create with them, but it's going to be fun!

Don't forget to set the alarm and get back over here on Wednesday, April 25th and see what the other team members have created, too!

And, well, here's the bead table today ~ All kinds of little goodies on the bench.

There's the way cool pendant that I received from Diana over at Suburban Girl Studio for the 2012 Spring Design Team. (De-Lish!)

Come back on Sunday, April 1st - yes, this Sunday - and you'll get to see what I created with it!!

And, I've got a few other little goodies on the table, too - like one of my "Shel's Ribbons" for a client who wants me to put a pink Swarovski Crystal dangle off one end and tie a pink ribbon to it because she's a breast cancer survivor (yeah!!) and some nice Irish Waxed Linen from White Clover Kiln over on Etsy,...and some seed beads and other things,....

So, what's on your bead table today,...or your work table, your 'to-do' table,....whatcha up to??

Hop on over to Flickr and see what everyone else has on their Bead Table today won't you?

Until Tomorrow,....yes, tomorrow,.....(It's my birthday!)

Peace, Love and Fun at the Bead Table!!


October Means Awareness!

Shel's Awareness Ribbons

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I thought it was a good time to do a 'reminder campaign'. 

Please remember to get your mammo's, do your monthly self-check, and remind all your girlfriends, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, cousins, neighbors, co-workers and any one else you can, to get checked out for breast cancer.

Helping to support breast cancer awareness through causes that are dear to your heart or volunteering in whatever ways you can to help bring awareness, funds for education and research in order to help save lives and eventually eliminate breast cancer is what it's all about!

Shel's Awareness Ribbons - 2011

"Getting Smashed"

With tons of things on the “to-do” list today and tomorrow, from a conference call, an afternoon appointment, shuttling the son to/from school and sports practice, to “Academics Night” at the high school and then also getting my “boobs smashed” (yep ladies – this is important – don’t forget your annual mammograms!!) there’s no time to create jewelry before I leave for my sis’s cabin for the “Girls Retreat” this weekend.

Most of you are stuck back there on the “Boobs Smashed” thing, aren’t you? 

Well, as most of my friends and family know I usually do a shout-out each year for this – it’s my annual “Takin’ the Girls Out and Getting’ ‘em Smashed” campaign. Bringing a whole new (and positive) meaning to the term - “Getting Smashed”.

I’ve been doing this ‘campaign’ as I call it since before I had a blog and all I could do was email all my girl friends and family members and tell them how important this is and not to forget to do it! 

I mean no disrespect what so ever to anyone when using the words “getting smashed” and don’t use it to promote drinking and driving. I’m actually trying to bring a whole other meaning to the phrase – a positive one - in hopes that it will take over the other meaning and in the process put some light and levity into the situation.  Most people aren’t as open to talking about personal issues and things of this nature – and that’s okay, I am.

So, here’s my annual plea.  Take your ‘girls’ out this year and go ‘get ‘em smashed’ for the sake and safety of yourself and all those who love you. 

As I’ve said before, make it a fun day with your girl friends. (You’ll have to plan this in advance because as you know making appointments for these types of things doesn’t happen instantly).  Get a group of girlies together and all of you head over to the Mammo-Place and “get smashed” and then afterwards go out for a nice lunch or dinner and celebrate being the loving, caring, creative, positive and strong women you are!

Please, even if you go by yourself and just remind your girl friends and family members online or via text, twitter or whatever – take careof yourself - and let’s help raise awareness for this. I believe awareness can save lives!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and let’s “Save the Ta-Tas”!!
