Hooray! It's the weekend. I will definitely be sleeping in tomorrow.

Wednesday did not turn out as horrible as it had started out to be. I am a home improvement junkie so when I heard of a new home improvement store in my area I just had to go check it out. The Habitat for Humanity Home Improvement Outlet is fantastic! The only thing better would be a jewelry supply outlet or a fabulous and chic clothes outlet, but you go with what you got. I had a ball. Plus, everything you buy has been donated so all of the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. I found the most delicious aqua blue paint. I had to buy it even though I have no idea where I'm going to use. It is just the most delightful color. If you need to do some home improvement, see if you have a Habitat for Humanity Outlet Center in your area and check it out!

Well, for once, I finished my Creative Challenge piece before the next one was out. This week's challenge was to create something using the color of lime from the spring color chart. I decided to use some lime-colored glass beads I had lying around and paired them with aqua-colored glass beads. They have been wrapped with sterling silver and added to sterling silver links that I of course handcrafted. I like the way it turned out. It's very simple and summery. Plus, since it is a plain chain, it could be worn to dress up an outfit or with a pair of jeans. Snazzy, if I say so myself. It will be listed in my shop shortly.

Yesterday, I was EBSQ's Art of the Day feature. Yay! Well, I should say that my Lava Decadence Cuff was the feature of the day. That was pretty cool. I have only been a member over there for a couple of months so I don't know how prestigious this is, but it's fun. Plus, my cuff sold within hours, and I have some interest in me making more of them. I should see if willowglass can help me with that.

Oh, I almost forgot. Today is the start of the Destash Bash on Etsy. Lots of people have joined up to get rid of their stash so they can create a new stash. I'm one of them. So head on over and search for Destash Bash.

Aimee - congratulations on that feature - and that is wonderful that there is so much interest in your jewellery and cuffs - well deserved.

I hope this weekend is a great one for you and you enjoy your lie in (well deserved too I think!)

Thanks for the habitat for humanity tip! I'm jealous of your paint...I live in an apartment and I'm cursed with white walls! I wish I found out about the destash bash sooner...oh well maybe next time :)

I love your challenge piece-It's beautiful!

I wish we had a habitat for humanity outlet here. The local place we have here borders on junk!Although I did rescue some Elvis things once.

That aqua paint sounds like a bath to me!

Congratulations on your feature and sale of your cuff!

Heading over to the destash bash now!
