Just sent out the March Newsletter

Trendy Expressions Blog

What is a blog?
A blog is a type of website with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics, pictures or video.
The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

Why am I using a blog?
I am using a blog for a few reasons:
1. I do a lot of custom orders. I would like to let my customers provide feedback on purchases they have made.
2. I also would like to show potential customers my creative abilities.
3. You can also be notified of ideas I have when you check the Blog for new product lines or materials I wish to use and make comments.
4. I also can give more information on the charities I support and get feedback or suggestions of new charities from anyone.
5. The website that I sell my products on doesn’t provide enough space for information about upcoming events and previous events that I have held or attended.
6. And most of all, it’s a fun interactive way to keep in contact with my customers and it's super easy! You can include your name when you leave a comment or post a comment anonymously on anything I blog about.

New Jewelry Line!
The new line is called Loving Luxury. The jewelry is made with Swarovski Crystals, Fire-Polished Glass Beads, and more precious gems and metals. I have listed below the pieces of jewelry that are in the Loving Luxury line and will be adding more soon:

Elegant Black and Crystal Necklace
Crystal and Pearl Cluster Necklace
Silver Crystal Circle Necklace
Pearl and Metal Swirl Necklace
Crystal Lariat
Silver Crystal Wave Bracelet
Silver Rhinestone Bugal Bracelet
Elegant Black and Crystal Earrings
Glitter and Crystal Earrings

Silver Crystal Earrings
Smokey Pearl and Crystal Earrings
Crystal Dreams Earrings



What I'm working on:

Local Bead Shops that I love!

Some of my customers have asked....
Where do I shop for my beads?
What are my favorite places to get beads?
Do I buy online?

My favorite local shops are:

Fat Cat Beads:
I like the selection of metal charms.
Favorite: I love the punch card that I fill and get 10.00 off my next purchase!

Meant to Bead:
I love the HUGE selection of beads. I have to stick to the list of things I came for, or it gets bad.
Favorite: The selection of Swarovski beads.

Tropic Jewel:
449 State StreetMadison, WI 53703-2031
I love the atmosphere. Hippyish. I love the selection of frosted glass beads.
Favorite: Fill a small zip lock bag with random beads for $3.00!

Shopping Rules:
My only rule when I go into one of these shops is I HAVE to leave in 30 minutes or less! Or I go a little nutso on the beads. There are so many choices and opportunities!

My favorite Shops Online are:
and a new favorite.... Thanks Phillip!

I can't wait for spring to go to garage sales and flea markets! That is where I find most of my Vintage Trinkets.

AND Bad news....... There is a Bead Show at the Alliant Energy Center this month. I'll need a chaperone!

Please let me know if there any unique bead shops in your area (Dane County, WI) so I can help support the economy!
