Bead Shack is re-opening!

This is an email I received today, thought you all might be interested.
Dear Colleen,
Thank you so much for supporting The Bead Shack!
The response of our Bead Club members was touching
and overwhelming.  Because of wonderful people like you,
we are going to give it another try and will be there for you again.  
Please come by and say hi and let us know that you really do want
us to be a part of the beading community.  We look forward to your
support so we can continue to meet your needs to advance your
creativity for beading.  We missed the friendship, joy and caring 
that you brought to The Bead Shack.  
We officially open on Friday, September 2nd.  
Watch for emails from us about new roving discounts 
for Bead Club members and special events, such as 
Amanda Edwards teaching a new project/class and more. 
 Hope to see you soon!!

All of Us at The Bead Shack

Barbara Lewis Bead Give away

Let's have a little fun!  If you were here a few days ago, you saw my video of some pieces I had made with a technique I discovered in the studio.  It is so easy to make a rivet with heat instead of a hammer!  So now that amazon.com has the "Look Inside" feature activated for my book, you'll be able to see how it's done!

Here's what you have to do ... visit Amazon (just click on the link above), take a "Look Inside", click on the "Liked" button, post the contest on your blog and become a follower ... if you aren't already. :-)   But don't forget to come back here and leave a comment on my blog so I can enter you in the drawing. We'll be announcing the winner next Tuesday at this time!

I love giving gifts ... and thank you in advance for helping me to get the word out about my book.   :-)
