Spine Twines


I just finished making about 20 Spine Twine bookmarks! I made a bunch in gold and black, our high school colors! They turned out really pretty! I also made some others using some old lampwork beads that I picked up a year ago on clearance somewhere. They are cute, too! I am headed to take inventory of my crystals. After checking in my order I received yesterday, I figured out that I didn't have the right color for the pink/plum lampwork beads I have on order. That's not good! I should probably get some more black, too, since two of the other sets have black in them as well. And, now that I think about it, I don't have too much of the light sapphire, that I should! UGH! This just keeps adding up! Well, the initial investments in any business venture are huge, I know that, I just don't have to enjoy it!

I made my door-prize box and the papers for people to fill out to have a chance to win a door-prize. I am going to take any extra ticket sales and give that money to the local food bank. Anyone can register free for a door prize, but if they want to BUY more chances (4 tickets for $1.00 or 25 for $5.00) the proceeds will go help those less fortunate than me. I was thinking about doing this type of fundraiser for breast cancer or something major, but then, I thought, you know... WHY NOT help my local community? SO, that is what I have decided to do. And, given the timeframe being so close to Thanksgiving, I think I will stock up the foodbank with green beans, stuffing packages, corn, and other items that would be normally had at a family Thanksgiving dinner.

I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend! It is dreary and cold outside. Typical for late October, here in southern Indiana. But, thank goodness my crafting keeps me indoors!
