Customer Appreciation Month

First things first. Yesterday was my anniversary. My 17th anniversary. And, before all you smart-assy McSmartypants out there go "Wow, how old is she?", I'll have you know I got married quite young. Not, like, 12 or anything, but young.

Instead of having some tired dinner out, we (all of us) went to my most fave place in the world - the beach, of course. It was a beautiful, breezy day and while we were swimming, a small pod of dolphins was leaping in the waves right in front of us.

We always see dolphins at the beach, but these were especially close and so playful, really jumping completely out of the waves and just enjoying the day.

I think I'll take it as a sign of good luck for the coming year.

Speaking of the coming year, I know it's been a tough couple of weeks out there and there's probably more to come. I know at our house, it's been stress-central.

With that thought in mind, I thought it would be nice to just spread a little love. So I've decided that, instead of having a weekly discount code, I will make October my


Every week, I will practice RABK (Random Acts of Bead Kindness) and I'll send out 1 or 2 or maybe more beads to my customers. If you've ever bought a bead or buy a bead anytime during the month of October, then you're eligible.

I think this will be fun. I think it's nice to get a little surprise in the mail. I think everyone needs a boost. And we all know how good it feels to do something nice for someone else, right? So I'm actually being kind of selfish, right?

Oh, btw, here's the revised picture of this week's Coffee & Donuts beads. Better, doncha think? They're on eBay right now.
