ArtLog: Beads of the Month schedule and roll call Grand Roster, Year Three
lion
elisem
(Need basic information on the Beads of the Month program, including prices and shipping costs and the questionnaire? Look here. Please note that there is now a third price level, the Mother Of All Magpies level at $50; this started due to the November package coming up, because that's the Astronomy-themed month and I wanted to offer a package containing really truly true meteorite beads. There are now Mother Of All Magpies available for May, December, and January too. Shipping costs for Mother Of All Magpies will be $4 for November, but I had to tweak the shipping on May, December and January to $5.)

Deadline for each month will be on the 15th of that month unless specified in my LJ when I announce roll call for each month. If there is a limited number of spots available for some particular theme or level, I'll list that here too.

Here's how roll call will work for Year Three (Feb 2006 through Jan 2007): I'll list the names of people signed up under the relevant months. This listing will have the whole year's run. I'll link back here every time I do a reminder post so that people don't have to look in more than one place to see if they left a comment asking me to put them on the list. (If you want to use a pseudonym, that's fine; e-mail me at elise a-t lioness d-o-t net and tell me how you'd like me to refer to you in the roll call.)

Somebody who was given a subscription by somebody at WisCon has a whole bunch of BotMo coming. Like, dude, a lot.


There you have it. Let the BotMo fun begin!

Thanks! skipper_dee took the photo. She is brilliant.

I put in a subscription based on another post you did. I don't know if she might like to know but she inspired me to start some photo work. She's another very ripply person.

I am excited about the labs. I had some larger tumbled arrive last week (they are calling a bracelet but need some more to go with) along with some amethyst and a herkimer diamond. Have you ever seen these? I am flummoxed that the mines are just a click west of here. I have to go one day.

If you wouldn't mind too much there's a rough Uruguayan amethyst and one of these crystals that I'll send you out with the check for the lab upgrade. I've a another parcel of six HD A coming soonish along with a mixed 1/4lb bag. The BotM has been glowy thing both for making jewelry and and what that has done for the drawing. Ripples are quite cool.
