Yep, today's my birthday. I'm enjoying the first latte of the day, watching Maverick (the original one, with James Garner) on TV (not my choice, but it's okay), and preparing to head to Asheville for a free birthday lunch at my favorite restaurant. Yay!
So this is just a quick blog post to tell you all that I'm giving YOU a present today... a coupon for my Etsy shop, good for TODAY ONLY, for a whopping 28% off anything in the shop!!! The coupon code is Birthday2011. Remember, this is good for today only. It's the largest discount I've ever offered, and you probably won't see this again.
I'm not sure I'll get any new pieces made today, but I did finish a new bangle of sorts yesterday. Melon Twist was made for the Bead Art Originals color mosaic, which you can see if you visit the BAO blog.
Melon Twist is a bead crochet rope made from a mixture of beautiful Czech glass size 11/0 beads. It's crocheted with eight beads around, which makes it more structural than a rope made with fewer beads around, and I added a wire and some extra stitching to help it hold its shape while it's being worn.
Okay, off to celebrate my birthday!! :-)
