Two New Beaded Batik Bags

I'm kind of starting to quietly panic about both of my grandsons and son-in-law coming for a three day visit this summer. Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited I get butterflies and grin, like now, when I think of the visit. Then, the impact it may have on my health makes me afraid that I can't keep up. I think I'll plan things so we all can keep up. Like do grandma things and preteen things alternately...it will be fine/fun! Finished two more beaded batik bags. I will take them to the Live Life Love Life Gallery in Gatlinburg this week.

I've Been Blogged

My etsy shop, Billi's Paper Batiks, has been blogged. It may have happened before but this time I understand better what it means. It's short and sweet. Please drop by. http://tncrafter.blogspot.com/2012/06/this-weeks-feature-business-is-bills.html I photographed a few new pieces to list in my etsy shop. If not today, it's on tomorrow's agenda. I need some props to photograph my necklaces, like a bust, a hand and a head. I just thought of this, so, I'll be researching. Anyway here are some shots, as promised. :-D These are polymer clay.

Ready for the Gallery

I really put out the beading last week. I have an appointment tomorrow to show my bags at a new gallery and I wanted some fresh inventory. Today, I have done the photo shoot and still need to price them. I did some pricing research on Etsy this morning. As usual, some prices were in the hundreds and others just too little. I'll be thinking and working on that later today. I wanted to show the six beaded batik bags I have ready for the gallery. Too bad I'm not sure what to call them: stash bags, gypsy bags, pouches, amulet bags. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
