Okay, I know I haven't been a customer of Artbeads for very long, but wow, so far, I have never had a bad experience with them. They have fast shipping, everything is well packed, and their customer service is absolutely superb. I especially love the fact that they are a small, family-owned business.
But when I opened my mail last week, I got yet another reason to love Artbeads. As one of their Design Partners, they gave me a coupon code worth 10% off all purchases until July 31, 2010, and they told me to share it with my blog readers! So here it is:
So, after my sad news from this past weekend, my sister and I agreed that a little retail therapy is in order. I've got some great ideas for a few new pieces made with those gorgeous Swarovski stones - their aquamarine fancy octagonal stones are just calling to me! - and I've been perusing the online auction catalogs for Sotheby's and Christie's, and I've decided to make an entry for the August Etsy Beadweavers' Challenge.
I can't think of a better way to spend a hot, gross summer afternoon than sitting in the air conditioning, shopping for beads on my laptop. (Unless, of course, I'm in the swimming pool with Colden.)
Anyway, we're off to have dinner with the family tonight, and I'll be watching Colden blow bubbles again outside, if I can stand the heat!
