Are you a crafty mom?

If you are a crafty mom, I have the perfect contest for you.  Parents magazine is going to feature one winner in a future issue of their magazine & that person plus 3 runners-up will with prizes from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft.  I know that you get most of your supplies from members of ESST(Etsy Supply Street Team), but this would be great for those items that you can't find on-line.

In order to enter the competition you need to upload a photo & instructions for a unique craft that you can make with kids by August 9, 2010.  The link for the contest rules & instructions are at http://www.parents.com/photos/photo-contests-1/craftiest-mom-contest/   Good luck! 

By the way, Etsy is always a great place to get craft ideas.  Click the supplies section & enter Team ESST in the search field (in the upper right hand of the screen) and browse the supplies that are available.  Or search the handmade section to see what amazing creative items are for sell.

Treasuries that Treasure Evarose1900

Oh my, I am feeling treasured.  Several treasuries have included beads from Evarose1900.  What an honor.  You know that I am the kind of gal that reads her feedback when she is feeling down.  Yeah, I am that shallow.  Treasuries are great - sometimes I feel like they are little creative energy packs.  You look at a collection of often times very diverse items that someone has grouped in a theme & poof there goes your mind coming up with your own creative idea.  Other times I just like admiring the colors & textures - an art exhibit without having to leave my computer.  Ahh.  See, I am easy to please.

I still haven't figured out how to include a link on this blog.  It is just one of the many things that I need to figure out this summer - if anyone wants to come help me with my technical issues, let me know.  In the meantime, here is a list of some of the treasuries that my beads have been in.

Red, White & Blue & 700 too!

Wow!  Evarose1900 celebrated its 700th sale on Etsy this weekend, which made both me & the lucky customer who got a special surprise with her order very happy.  I wonder how quickly it will take to get to 800. 

Evarose1900 is featured in another great slideshow created by Etsy Supply Street Team member Karen of Runswithsissors.   The link is:

Enjoy the great summer weather like I do - take your favorite bead project to the pool or park with you.  It is a great conversation starter & you'll have fun!  I've met some great people when they've come over & asked what I was working on.
