On Daffodils, Dust Bunnies, & Beads

Apr 2, 2008

"...Not enough hours in the days, or days in the week," my
mother used to say while cleaning. And boy, was she right -
I cannot believe we're already into April.

I just love this time of year. The fat robins are out and
about, the Vinca ground cover is all ablush with lavender
blooms, and the daffodils in the garden are swaying gently
in the afternoon breeze.

At least I think they are.

I can't really be sure though, as the windows in this place
are so cruddy that I can hardly see out of them. The dust
bunnies too are multiplying and spreading faster than
Carlie can drop a tray of loose beads, and the bead strands
still need to be cleaned.

What? Huh? The bead strands still need to be cleaned?

Yep, you heard that right peoples.

Your favorite bead store (Buttercup Beads) is doing some
spring cleaning. After the windows and floors - the beads
are in need for a little spring sorting too - and that's
precisely where you come in.

Run on over and help us with a little Spring
beadhousekeeping if you can. To make room for more stock,
we're in a "buy one, get one half off" bead kinda mood now
until April 15. Buy any two strands of beads and get the
lesser price strand at half off!

While you're in, check out our new custom blends of The
Buttercup Bead Soup mixes - they have cute names too like,
"Starry Night, Paperwhites, Cool Water, Hydrangea Garden,
Golden Afternoon, Rose Blush, & Purple Hyacinth" - perfect
for almost any beading project. A full 60grams of assorted
beads in one little resealable package. You will love these

Now for some housekeeping of other matters:

And the winner is!...Congratulations to Ms. Jeanette Jahn
who came closest to guessing the Jarred Jelly Bean Count at
533! The correct number was 534! Jeanette will receive a
$20 in store gift certificate - (if she ever returns my
email or phone call...)

Also, the April class (and Bead Soiree)schedule is up in
full bloom! We're excited to bring you a pretty garden of
new projects too- Carol's Byzantine Chain Maille Bracelet,
Gina's Wrapped Ring trio and wrapped bangle, Eileen's
Triangle Weave Necklace and more. Check out the website
for details. Classes are filling fast, so hurry and reserve
your seat.

Life just got easier folks.
Did you know? That we now have a "Class Wish List" for
those of you who wanted to take a certain class and
couldn't make the date? Yep. Just sign up for a class in
our very official looking CVS notebook - once we get enough
to book a class we'll make it happen. (And always - if I'm
teaching the class - private dates are always available at
no extra charge.)

Okay, I know there is probably more to tell you - but I'm
tired of thinking, as well as typing...and besides, there's
a Dust Bunny biting at my ankle.

So - Happy Spring. But more - Happy Beading.

Hope to see you soon!
