My favourite clay artists - Info EXPOSED!

During the course of my clay bead making adventures, I came to know 3 very favourite clay bead artists that made a difference in my hobby life. They have been true inspirations and have shown me support in my work. I'm really glad to have found my own community of clay crafters whom I look up to. They are all artists' with their own rights and excel in their own ways with clay crafting.

With their blessings, it gives me the greatest pleasure to dedicate a space in my blog to each of them. If you have found them through my blog and wish to acquire their fantastic works, do support them too! And have them know you found them here. =)

To end this post, I would like to share 2 quotes that is food for your thoughts - to friends and customers that had shared with me the woes of work, study and crafting life. (You know who you are.) Chin up gals!

Hello & M.I.A.

Dear friends and customers,

thank you for dropping me with your emails in anticipation of seeing my new batch of beads. =) I also cannot wait to share with you because I think I've set my own record by producing one of the largest number of beads to date! =P

There are a few new range of beads I've added in for this batch. You will see 2 sets with fun shape focals, a set of pillows made using image transfers, new shapes & many sets of matching assortments! If you would like to see more of the fun shape ones, please let me know so that I can work on improving them.

The reason why I've more beads to showcase today is because of my expected absence during the weekly uploads. As a reminder, I will (probably) not be able to make any new beads for the month of October as I will be relocating to a temporary home until my current home's renovation is over. However when time permits (or when the hands start to "itch") I will spring surprise uploads - but please do not ask me when will my surprise be as it will be impromptu makings.

When I do return for my regular update on Tuesdays, I will probably change my upload schedule to alternate Tuesday instead of every Tuesday as I foresee I will be very busy with home and children affairs. This will also allow me to produce more beads at one go and you can save on postage too! =) I will confirm this new arrangement again in due course.

I hope you will not forget about me when I go MIA for a while and I hope you will continue to check back regularly for any updates or surprise uploads during this time. ^_^

Thanks everyone for giving me such a wonderful experience creating beads for you and knowing that they have been well received by your customers makes it even more worth while.

Apologies for this long post this morning! Beads are coming right up around 10am (SGP time).

These are just some of the beads you will be seeing on my next upload next Tuesday, 25/9.
You can also expect some other kinds of new clay bead, making their debut in my blog. =p
So keep this date with me if you wish to purchase and work with my beads.

Have a nice weekend ahead!

Dear friends and visitors,

I've decided that occasionally (aside from my regular uploads for Tuesdays), I will spring a few sets of surprise batch of beads on my blog. Now, I won't be able to tell you when the exact day and time for it because these are impromptu makings. I will only be able to announce it on the day itself. So do check back on my blog from time to time.

Today I will be uploading an limited edition batch of beads. There will not be many sets but I hope that those who have been following up on my works and unable to acquire them so far, may have the chance to do so today. =)

Please check back in the afternoon (between 3pm-4pm Singapore time) and as usual, use the order form in my blog. (it's working fine now *wink*)

See you later!!

Thank you for your poll!

I appreciate those who have stopped by and contributed to the poll. It looks like I'll have to stick with the current way of managing the sale of my beads. =)

I've received some feedback on selling at Etsy but that's not something on my priority list right now because of the listing costs involved. So until then, this is still the best way to showcase the sale of my beads. Though I very much welcome any ideas you think would be suitable for the kind of fixed day sale I have.

As much as I wish to give everybody an equal opportunity to work with my beads, I will have to reiterate that the reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis. That is why I always stress that to be fair to all buyers, order forms should only be submitted after the last item is uploaded which I diligently announce.

*I will NOT entertain order forms that come in during the period of my uploads*
(Please please remember this as you will not find your name in the reservation list.)

After you submit the form, I don't have control whose order form comes in first because it may depend on your internet speed or the server (which is U.S. based) hosting my order form. I receive the order forms all properly sorted in time sequence so I will base on that to reserve the beads - and not because of the assumption that you may be the first one to submit the form.

Thanks for reading this post and I hope I've enlightened many new & would-be buyers about my administration.
