Facebook Page

Well, I think it's safe to say that this here blog is neglected.

Thing is, life is so fast and hectic (and I mean everybody's in general) that finding the time to write and read blogs is a bit tricky. I'm not writing the blog off totally. I expect I will blog from time to time but it won't be a regular occurrence.

If you'd like to make sure you keep up to date with all things Beads By Laura then your best bet is to look at my Facebook page. You don't need a Facebook account to view it and you'll find that there's a lot more happening over there than there is here.

I've also set up a Tumblr to act as a record of what glasses I use for each bead or bead set. My most recent Creation is Messy testing posts can also be found there.

Sneaky Peek

Lampwork glass beads by Laura Sparling

I thought you might like a sneaky look at some of the beads that I'll have for sale later today. Those up there are they. New beads will be for sale at 8:30pm this evening.

Thank you so much to everyone who has completed my bead survey so far. Your responses have been brilliant and I really do appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions.

I'll be making a few minor changes to my little bead business (hence getting your opinions) and I've already implemented a couple of those.

Firstly, due to what seem to be constantly rising postal rates, I am now charging £3.50 to post beads to Europe, America, Canada and the rest of the world. However, postage to the UK mainland remains free of charge.

Secondly, I have opened a Folksy shop. I did consider Etsy but a few of you expressed a negative opinion about buying beads through Etsy and suggested Folksy instead. So, I listened and have set up shop there. In my Folksy shop you will find any Freshly Baked Beads that don't sell within a week of my listing them on my website. I'll put the odd set of Lonelies and one-offs in there too so do have a look occasionally to see if anything tickles your bead fancy.

Lastly, I am here now giving you prior warning of bead sellery tonight. A few of you have told me that I don't give you enough notice about new beads. It's not always possible for me to give you lots of notice but I promise you I will do my utter best. If you are signed up for email blog notifications and you rely on these for news of new beads then might I suggest that you sign up to my actual mailing list? It's just that the blog emails are sent via a third party service and I never know exactly when they'll be sent (I can only select a three hour window) which means that they might well be out of date when you receive them. Annoying, I know.

Righty-ho, that's enough waffling from me. I'd better go and melt some glass.

Have a fab Tuesday,
