New Website Coming!

I haven't posted in a couple of days. I've been busy trying to get my new website up and running. I'll have newsletter sign up, maybe some "How To" videos for jewelry making and of course items to buy.

I have it published as of now, but not all of the sections are finished and I've noted them with the ever famous "Under Construction". Stop by and check it out.

What do we have here? A little Red Hotness for Valentines!

One of the groups that I belong to have Themes of the Week sales. The one that is happening now is the Red Hot Theme of the Week and it runs 1/11-1/24. Some members of the estyBEAD team will have specials for these items going on.

To see what is included in this awesome theme, simply follow these instructions:

Go to www.etsy.com and log in.
At the top of the page is where you will find an area that looks like this for searching:



The tags are "ebtw" and "red hot", which is what you need to enter here. Helpful hint: Do NOT type ebtw in all caps, you will get nothing. Click "Search" and wait for the pages to load that have these specific tags associated with them.

Just for fun, here are some of the pages I looked at earlier:

For All You Small Crafters Out There!

If you do not already know about the new government regulation that could affect you; then you really need to read this article at World Net Daily!

And if you really want something to read so you can fall asleep; then here is the link for the actual Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008!

I'm writing someone today in the house of representatives! Can you imagine what it will do to all of us who currently try to make a living online? Let's take some action and get this ridiculous Act reversed.

Let's Hear It For Recycling - Junk Stop

I'm always looking at those green bean cans wondering what I can make out of them besides luminaries. Junk Stop takes it one step further by actually making stuff out of recycled items.

Way to go Junk Stop. Stop by their shop and find out what else they are recycling!

Dealing With Discrimination

I was using Stumble Upon! by Firefox when I came upon an interesting documentary about a teacher who, after Martin Luther King was shot, took to teaching 3rd graders and correctional institute employees about discrimination. At first, it seems as though her method is harsh. But just keep watching. I think everyone should have to see this video series.

China aims to silence reform call

This is a truly sad story and I agree with the Charter 08 document. How does anyone expect to prosper in a time where freedom is in question all around us. I also think they should release Liu Xiaobo, as he only signed a piece of paper standing up for what he believes is right.


DO NOT TAKE YOUR FREEDOM FOR GRANTED!

Aahh...Plagiarism!

This is great!!




Dippylulu has the right idea; too bad this can't be circulated worldwide. I love the other cards in the series as well. Stop by her shop and show your support in believing that plagiarizing is BAD!

When I was in school, I wrote on a discussion board about plagiarizing. There was someone in one of my classes that was copying my work word-for-word and calling it her own. She was kicked out of school as she was doing this to a number of people.

If you want to know about creative commons licensing and the "RULES", visit the Creative Commons FAQ page. My argument to all this is can you prove when the idea was born?
