I am headed to North Scottsdale for Mardi Gras & Casino Night to benefit The Melonhead Foundation. I’m one of a handful of vendors who will be selling items and donating a portion of sales to the foundation.
It should be a great event and the weather is cooperating very nicely. We’ll be on the patio under cover, but just outside. Supposed to be in the mid-70s today, so the evening will be mild.
Through the years, I’ve supported the Melonhead Foundation by donating a portion of sales from my Joolz (especially the Melonhead themed Joolz) to help their mission of providing financial assistance for familes going through pediatric cancer treatments. I’m also a trustee on the Melonhead Foundation Board and the founder, Deb Leone, is a dear friend.
Here are a few pics of available and previously sold Melonhead Joolz. Be sure to check the foundation’s newly updated website too!
My “baby” is going to be 16 on May 11th, so I’m having a “Sweet 16 Sale” in my Etsy store through that date.
All Joolz (rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, accessories) are marked 16% off already low prices…not to mention that free first class US shipping. What a deal.
Think of all the events coming up that need “Joolz”…you can’t? Here, I’ll help you:
I think you get the picture…every day is a holiday!
Welcome to another Thursday of ornaments and decorative items for the holidays!
I’ve got a sparkly red fan pull to dress up a ceiling fan or lamp switch for the holidays.
This beauty starts with a handmade glass lampwork bead…this one is by Fay Katherine, an online bead friend. It is swirly red glass and sparkly silver dichro glass encased in clear. I’ve wired it with sterling silver wire onto a fan pull finding. Add a couple of Bali silver beadcaps and a silver spacer and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind decorator item. Great for gifts too!
Here’s another angle:

It’s the Holiday Edition of Ornament Thursday and just like last year, I am not fully prepared. Life got in the way between Thanksgiving and yesterday. So rather than bail on OT entirely this wee, I am using this slot to show off my friend Jodie Ruskin’s very cool holiday icicle ornaments!
Aren’t they amazing! I love what my beady friends do with melting glass and these ornaments are no exception! These are made from boro (borosilicate) glass rods and are about 5″ in length. Imagine the sparkle when the tree lights shine on these as they sway from the branches!
Be sure to check all the great OT creations this week and keep coming back every Thursday this month. Lots more planned!
