Thong?!?

Monday, May 16, 2011

A few girlfriends and I went off shopping a couple Saturdays ago and I was talking about getting ready for a art/craft show I'm vending at in June and mentioned that I was going to make some book thongs as giveaways with each sale, not a single one knew what I was talking about. Today I posted a picture on Facebook of some of the thongs I made yesterday and I got the same reaction....."book thong??", still nobody had heard the term. Well, to be sure I wasn't simply crazy I Googled it and it came back with nearly 17 million results = not crazy! It was a great way to use some of my glass bead stash I have been hoarding the past few years.


I'd like to plug a couple shops real quick. One is my friend Annie's brand new store ChinChic, she makes the cutest fleece accessories for chinchillas or other small pets...cage liners, hammocks etc. (ditch the messy bedding and get a couple sets - just wash and reuse). 
Next shop is Beth at Ravens Sight, she has THE best handcrafted soaps - trust me, I know, I've been using them for the past couple years - and she's also added tattoo balm to her offerings. Both Annie and Beth use only the best materials and ingredients. Check 'em out!


Above are a couple books I've made lately, they aren't listed for sale since I've got to build a stash for the show but I've got more in my shop! They're scrolling there on the right sidebar too.
I am slowly making my way through my fabrics....but have no fear, I still have about 30 to go to have used each design just once! I have been showing great restraint though, I have quite a selection on my wishlists....maybe I'll reward myself with a few once I am show-ready!

Not much for a video but I love Bob Seger's version of a fun Chuck Berry tune. Get up and shake it...it's quite a danceable ditty!

The coolerator was jammed with tv dinners and ginger ale........at the Shores
