Oh no...,I just accidentally hit the delete button instead of the publish button on about 5 comments just now (Wednesday night around 6:45 central time) if you left a comment but don't see your name, please do it again. I'm soooooo sorry.
Have you guys seen the Fall issue of Stringing Magazine? They have the 100+ must have jewelry-making accessories and tools in this issue.
It was my lucky lucky day that my handmade copper toggles were featured in the clasps section.
Do you remember these clasps? You can still find them on my Etsy store.
In the mean time, I finally got some of the copper clay toggles listed for sale on my Etsy store. I love these and the textures.
So in celebration, I want to do a give away for a set of two handmade copper clay toggles. Just leave a comment to be entered in the drawing on Saturday morning. I don't usually have a lot of comments left so you've got a great chance of winning! Here is a pic of the toggles you can win.
So Caiden brought home school germs a few days ago and I have been knocked out for two days getting almost nothing done in the beading world. I hate being unproductive but in a way, it has been nice hanging out in bed all day chillaxin.
Speaking of chillaxin, I have a cool find for you. Have you ever heard of a Hydro Flask? My brother discovered these and had bought our Mother one as a gift. She liked it so much that I had to buy us a few.
It is basically a magical insulated water bottle. These are the best thing since sliced bread. They can keep ice and water cold for up to 24 hours. I can fill it up with water and ice at bed time and when I wake up in the morning, there is still ice in the cup!!! Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night or early morning to an ICE COLD drink. I take mine in the summer hot car and many hours later, I can get back in the car with over 100 degree temps and there is still ice inside.
I bought mine at Amazon. Just do a search for Hydro Flask. Oh, and I recommend the add on pop top lid for another $6. I don't like having to screw the lid off every time I want a drink. If you get this lid, make sure you order the "Standard mouth" size Hydro Flask. We have a few of the 21oz sizes. I also bought the smaller 12oz size for Caiden to take to school. His teacher lets them have a water bottle in class and now he has nice ice cold water all day long. He loves it and I feel like I'm being a good mother:-)
