What are these beads?

I can't for the life of me figure it out. I thought they were trade beads, but maybe not?
Finally, a good link to sk*rt

There's a big marketing outrage going over at bentolunch on LJ. I use bento boxes for the farmer's market since it's a lot better to have little cut up strawberries, peanut butter crackers, etc on you instead of buying fast food.

Also, never procrastinate. I did and it rained and I have five things to photograph.

To the person who stole the pet jewelry lady's keychain at the farmer's market:

When you steal from a vendor at the farmer's market, you're really not helping your local community. When a person vends at a farmer's market, a lot of the money goes back into the community. There's the booth fee, which helps the farmer's market keep going, encouraging local produce and crafters, which take less gas to get to market and thus are better for the environment. Any profit that people make at the market often either goes back to buy stuff at the market or to help support the local crafter- when you buy local, you help kids go through college, stay at home mothers surmount the wage gap, disabled people have decent work...there's so much value there. So boo on you for stealing.

No love,

I've started posting some of my stuff on Gumiyo. No clue if I'll get anything out of it, but the more exposure, the better,eh?
Soap Review:

Lather Lemongrass: A lot of lather, very little in shower smell, very subtle scent on skin. I really like the slight citrus smell. Special thanks to dad for the hotel soap.

Is your gemstone a real stone? Also, olive jade is sepertine and african turquoise is jasper.

More product reviews:

Venus and Vixen Vanilla Chai Body Milk: Be careful with this! I wasn't anticipating the thinness, put on too much and ended up smelling like dessert(it mixed with my cinnamon soap) all day. and not subtly either.

Lather Yuzu Bergamont Moisturizer : Smelled a little too fruity at first, but goes on subtle. Not the best thing ever, but pretty good for free.

Meringueshop tries to clear her name.
I've started a free shipping sale on my etsy store until 12 am CDT on Friday to celebrate my 100th heart.

I saw that post too, and thought that jared shouldn't have posted with his badge because people would confuse his personal feelings with an Ok to copy others from etsy itself. Don't copy, please.
I've started a new flickr account for my jewelry pictures. Also, Pass made a new store for her (much) cheaper glass jewelry.

Etsy top sellers. I only have sold 26 items, so it's really inspriring to hear about those who have sold in the thousands on etsy.
A comparison between the showcase and relisting. When ebb and flow relisted she got exposure in several places: the time machine two, the fresh items on the buy page, the newly listed items on the bottom of the front page, and in the search and category pages.

I finally got this set up at my site I broke my little hand, so I'm debating super glue or getting a new one..
I've started selling on ebay again. It can be tough to pull several venues together, which is why I don't do more, even though the extra exposure doesn't hurt.

Awesome artist Jelene has a romantic comic themed pop painting up. Someone should make romance comics for today
I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this, but I guess more books are donated to the library since used copies are worth nothing.
