Snowpeople and the zen of marketing

I had some requests for winter beads (ho ho ho...it's August). I love snowpeople any time of year and it seems pretty fitting since we've had the coldest summer since I've lived here in California, I think. We are just now getting some temperatures over the 80's. Every night, though, it drops below 60 again. Weird. Anyway, I love the breezy weather so I'm happy. Poor skinny girls in bikinis are going to have to put on a sweater. Boo hoo. Yeah, been on a diet for a few weeks now and I'm settling into cranky. :/ Ok, back to the snowpeople! I am experimenting with a few different styles. With hat, without hat, with buttons, without buttons, big eyes, little eyes, big noses, etc.... Not sure if we have a clear winner yet. I still have to try out poked eyes, stripey stocking caps and maybe even some sticky-outy arms. Although, I need to get some hi-temp wire to do that. Could be cute, though.



Ahhh yes, I promised some chat about the zen of marketing, didn't I? Well, I believe in truth in advertising. If I don't like something I made, I will tell ya. Like the beads below....I think if I were to sell these, they would be called "Tape Worms" because that's what they look like to me. And yet, I am compelled to make more. Damn Double Helix and their addictive glass....*shakes fist at sky* Look for my clever marketing scheme involving the benefits of tape worms in a weight loss program.... (wah, I wanna quesadilla).

Thanks Pam! Maybe I'll have a beauty contest after I finish all the different varieties....

Donna, Donna, Donna....I suggest YOU come HERE and find out what good weather feels like. I just finished my guest room *wiggles eye brows*. Jus sayin...

Thanks Jan! Hmmmm...you may be on to something here. Lots of people like snakes. Tape worms...not so much. Maybe I can market them as snakes in a lake. *shudder*
