Speaking of Etsy shops. If you haven't been to SupplyEmporium yet, go check it out. HERE is the link to the shop. Claire has a nice selection of interesting and unique beads for reasonable prices. Plus, she is offering readers of my blog a discount of 15% off any order over $30. The coupon code for this offer is: 15BLOG. In case you forget what the coupon code is later, and can't find this post, you can find it on her shop banner on the right hand side of my blog. It looks like this:



  1. Thanks for the heads up Linda but I should just get you to send me your order print out and save money and time because I always love the colors you choose. Ann

    1. Well, I would do that, Ann, except that I rarely buy my beads with a particular project in mind. When I find a pattern that I want to try, I dig through my current bead stash and start making little piles of colors that I think will work well together. It's a bit like an artist mixing paints on their palette.

  2. At least I would have some what the same palette to choose from after some time. Your color choices are always so attractive. Thanks for sharing with us. Your blog is the first thing I check every morning. I tend to be drawn to pastels and sparkle when buying but love your earthy muted colors. Ann
