New Blog Background

Some of you may have noticed my background has changed.  I'm still trying to decide if this is the one I want to keep or another one I really liked.  The problem with the other one is, I'm not sure if all my posts would show up properly with the colors in it.  So I may switch back and forth for a little while and see which one seems to get more comments, yay or nay.  Anyway, "the cutest blog on the block" moved all their backgrounds to another site and sent out notices that we would be losing our backgrounds last week or before.  I was gone and couldn't get around to checking them out.  But I finally did last night and made the choice to change completely and chose between this one and one other for 3-Column backgrounds.  I hope you like it. Keep checking back.  You may see a different one before long or like I said, they may switch back and forth.

"It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" Beer Bottle windchime

Woohoo! I got my first Custom request. A customer on Etsy convo'd my shop, KayzKreationz, and asked about a custom Beer Bottle windchime. She has a "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" area on her back porch/deck and wanted a beer bottle windchime, like the Miller Lite one I had listed some time back. But she wanted a Miller Lite, Bud Lite, and Coors Lite bottle on it. (One of each) I got the bottles fired fairly quick, but it took me a while to find a suitable piece of "driftwood" from off our small Texas ranch to hang it from. I finally got it finished today and listed for her. She loves it. So if you're interested in something similar, just post here, convo me on Etsy or tweet me: KayzKreationz and I'll be glad to make you your own Custom Beer Bottle windchime. (If I have the bottles, since I'm not a big beer drinker.) :) Here's a pic or two and a link if you want to check it out. Enjoy.

Turquoise Copper wire-wrapped Donut Pendant

Well, I was trying to list this pendant last night for sale in my Etsy shop, KayzKreationz. But evidently Etsy was having issues. And this is the pendant I was going to feature for Saturday Blog Shopping this week. So I'm featuring it today anyway for the Shopping event and if Etsy gets over it's issues, I'll get it listed today or tomorrow. It's a great Turquoise Donut pendant that's been wire-wrapped with copper wire and glass beads. It makes a fun, funky piece of jewelry for the adventurous person. The copper wire swirls, coils, vines and wraps all around the turquoise donut to make a unique pendant. The Turquoise isn't real, as far as I know, but it's a really nice donut pendant anyway. You'll love this pendant. If you're interested in it and it's not listed in my shop, yet, leave me a comment here or convo me and as soon as Etsy is over it's issues, I'll set up a listing for you.  It's going to be priced at $30.00 with $6.50 shipping for the U.S. and $8.00 for Everywhere Else.
And while you're at it, be sure to check out my Glass Kreationz for your home and garden. Stained Glass, Mosaics and Fused Glass items really set off your home and your garden. They're all at KayzKreationz.

Adorable Girl Accessories

Recently on the Saturday Blog Shopping network, one of the great Etsy shops, was offering a giveaway for her special and I won!  ChiggerHillCottage makes the most adorable little girl accessories.  Although she is closed for the summer, you can check out her shop and sign up to be notified when she returns so you too can get in on the exciting accessories she has for little girls.  And although I don't have any little girls of my own, I knew exactly who I was going to give my winnings to.  It was an adorable bow holder, made to look like a little girl with pigtails.  You just clip your girl's bows and clips onto the braids/pigtails and keep them all in one place.  But she also sent an out of this world, very professionally made bow along with the holder as an "extra".  By now I was wishing I wore bows in my hair!  LOL.  But they made great gifts for 2 little girls that are very special to me.  To get a peek at her fantastic accessories, here's a pic of the 2 great things I won.  And be sure to sign up for her notification that she's open again.
In the meantime, if you're looking for some great Glass Kreationz for your home or garden, be sure to check out my shop for your newest Stained Glass, Mosaics or Fused Glass home/garden decor, KayzKreationz.
