On Tropical Nail polish, and great new Beads

May 7, 2008

So suddenly we're into May already. And because I was feeling flirty, I went off to have my first of the season - pedicure.

Well, let me tell you - picking out the perfect shade of toe color can be as overwhelming as a first time beader walking into a bead store... Too many colors to choose from - too many shades of pink, and reds, and oranges, and...uh.. blue?

But eventually I settled on "Tropical Sunset" - a beautiful corally pinky orange color, which, lucky for me - as it turned out - would also compliment my purply-blue SPIDER VARICOSE VEINS that have suddenly appeared on both my insteps and ankles! What!! What the heck! ...it so terrible getting old!

Anyway - overall, my Tropical toes are an improvement, and the chair massage made me forget about my purple veins for a bit...and I was happy to be out and about with my daughter in the warm spring afternoon.

Good colors and a great season can make you forget about a lot of things like that. Kinda like beading does - which always makes me happy. As I know it does for more than a few of you too.

So take advantage of seeing my Tropical toes when you come in to see all the new colors of beads we have here at the store. We beefed up the Stone beads - with some delightful new stones in all shapes cuts and sizes, we got some new sterling findings in - including Hip Chick beads, along with Splendid Loon porcelain, new finishes and colors of seed beads in yummy spring colors, a nice little selection of Kazuri Beads, Borosilicate beads, and beautiful - dyable - Acrylic flower components to make buttons or focals - the kind featured on the cover of the April/May cover of Beadwork Magazine, and we have some great Grace Lampwork bead sets too! I've also been at the torch a bit more coming up with some pretty combinations of Spring colors for your project needs. Hurry on in to see them before Karen buys them all. ;)

And remember, MOTHER'S DAY is this weekend! - there is still plenty of time to make your someone special - something special - with these great new beads selections. (Or - better yet - just send Dad on in to buy a finished piece or Gift Certificate!)

We've added some great new classes too - including Gina's Wire Wrap Ring Trio & Beaded Wire bangles - Susan's Shake, Rattle, & Roll, Sensuous (Get Hammered) Bracelet, Boro Bubbles, Pearl Crochet, Hollywood Squares, & Zero Calorie Donut, and Carol's beautiful Kumihimo Braiding and Calypso Fringe Projects. Check the website for dates and details. www.buttercupbeads.com

The spring/summer is also a perfect time to join in on our free bead soirees, and drink a little Sangria along with dipped strawberries, homemade brownies and share laughs with good friends. We host them twice a month - with the next one scheduled for May 21. Call to reserve your seat!

Also - look for our current Ad in the Clipper Magazine - you can save up to $10.00 on your next purchases so bring them in before they expire on the 23rd!

Well, that's it for now, my veins are throbbing and my eyes are blurry - but my toes still look great!!

As always - thank you to everyone for your continued support and bright & beautiful energies - we're digging this new adventure - even if it is adding a new shade of purple to my legs.

Happy beading, and Happy Mother's day to all my fellow beading buddies.
