Do you want one of our Birthday Beadaplooza t-shirts?

We have two of our Artful Bead Birthday Beadaplooza t-shirts saved from our big First Birthday celebration.  We have decided to award them to the two people who write the best “I deserve this t-shirt because”  paragraphs in the comments.  You have one week – we will announce the winners next Saturday. 

Make it funny, we’re still a bit tired from all the Birthday Celebrations, and we could use a good laugh. 


PS:  Mary had one of those “Oops” moments at Market last week.  You know, one of those “How many pounds of stuff can I put in the car  before the suspension breaks?” spells we get sometimes when confronted with truly amazing beads at great prices.  As in “lost her teensy mind and where will we put all this stuff?” followed by “HOW MANY BOXES???  Of WHAT???”  “AAAAAAKKKKKKK!!!”

So next week, we’ll have some new chalcedony, labradorite, moonstone, tourmalines, and other wonderfulness.

We’re Soggy but Celebrating Anyway!!

The rain ended our plans for the tent in the parking lot for games and excitement, so we just moved it inside!!  We’re decorated to our eyebrows, and the cake is delicious!!

Ready for the party

Birthday Coming Up!!!

Yes, it’s a BIG birthday coming up this weekend!!  Artful Bead in Carrollton is ONE year old on Saturday, August 1st!!

And we’re throwing a party and inviting you!  All day Saturday we’ll have cake and balloons and games with Prizes!!!  Cool and fun prizes like discount coupons and beads! 

And best of all?  You don’t have to bring a present – just show up and have fun and save money buying the most beautiful beads anywhere!  We’re giving everybody 25% off their entire purchase!  (Except books and classes, sorry.)

The Artful Bead Birthday Sale for the Carrollton store is this weekend – Friday and Saturday from 10 – 7   Yep, all day long both days.  And then on Sunday from noon till 5 too!  

And of course the Artful Bead in Fort Worth is celebrating right along with us, Friday and Saturday from 10 – 6, with the same sale prices, but no games, or balloons, or cake.  Well, maybe we’ll have cake.  (I saw it in a movie – “Cake good.”  Right?  Or was it one of my boys?) 

So get in here, and join the party!!!
