Sarcasm Reviews Thread Burners!

  Sarcasm reviews thread burners and throws out a reminder about a contest that ends in just a few days in this installment of snark! Not every beader uses thread burners, but in my opinion, every beader should at the very least, try one out. After a couple of years of using plain old scissors to trim my threads, I decided to go the cheap route, and purchased the Berkley Fireline fishing line burner. It runs around $9-$10 at Walmart or any sporting goods store, comes with its first set of two AAA batteries and an extra tip stored in … Read more

Sarcasm Needs Your Votes!

Yup, just as the title says, Sarcasm (me, HA!) needs your votes! Today will be short and sweet folks, because I have been having seizures all weekend. Bello Modo is having their annual bead challenge in which I have two entries. Prize winners win gift certificates, and thanks to the very expensive new meds for my seizures, I can’t buy beads like I used to, so I NEED to win! Winners are determined by votes in the comment section of their blog showing the 15 entries. If you wouldn’t mind going over to their blog HERE and voting for my entries, numbers 12 and 13, … Read more

Sarcasm Has It’s Own Month!

During October we celebrate (or at least I do!) a relatively unknown observance in the United States, National Sarcastic Awareness Month. Although some people like to refer to sarcasm as the “lowest form of humor” according to the Sarcasm Society, it actually requires a quick wit and the ability to extract the finest points of weakness in a conversation. I personally celebrate it as a month-long “I can get away with anything in a conversation-fest.” In case you haven’t already noticed, Sarcasm has gone Purple. October is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically … Read more

Sarcasm Got Her Groove On!

You all are going to HAVE to start sending me sarcasm and bead memes. I went to Google them for this blog and the first three rows that popped up were actually from this blog! Ha! I guess that means I have some sort of web presence, even if it IS as a snarky beader! You can send them to my email at tinybead@beccasbeadedbangles.com by the way! So this week I have been taking it really easy and taking a LOT of naps because of this nasty MRSA infection that has caused a crater in my beading arm. LOTS of naps, … Read more

Sarcasm Issues a Challenge (With a Prize!)

Oh.My.Freaking.Heavens.it.is.HOT!!! Living in Alabama in the summer is ridiculous! I mean, it’s only June, and we have already had near 100 degree temps. i am SO dreading August!!! It’s enough to melt my beads! The only thing the heat isn’t melting? The bugs! O.M.G. they are almost as big as my car!  All the more reason to run back inside in the A/C and back to my beads! For those of you who are regular readers, you know I like to participate in the monthly Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge. It is held using a different color palette over on Facebook … Read more

Sarcasm does a Beaded Bezel Tutorial

Welcome back to another fun-filled week of snark, honorable mentions from the Challenge, some of my beadwork (yes, I have found some time to bead, despite everything that has been going on!), and a tutorial! This is going to be a long one, boys and girls, so grab on to your nearest glass of wine (or whatever else lifts your spirits) and hang on! First, let me apologize about the tone of last week’s posting. I know it was down and depressing, and I apologize. Sometimes though, you just need an outlet for your emotions, and since my family was center stage … Read more

Sarcasm Shows Beautiful Work

Happy Easter! I hope everyone has had a pleasant day. I have spent it with my husband and our granddaughter watching her play with all her books and assorted goodies the Easter Bunny brought her overnight to our house. It was so cute this morning after she ate breakfast watching her march around the living room looking for her “prizes.” That’s what we had to tell her so she would go off and look! She is a very precarious little 19 month old, and smart as a whip! To convince her to do something she isn’t sure of though is … Read more

Sarcasm has a Winner

I am sooooo glad that this is Spring Break week where I am.  I can actually sleep late – wait, no, sleep at all, for that matter! See, I am the one who runs carpool for my grandbabies every day and with one gone to his other grandmother for the week and the Doodlebug being taken to daycare by my daughter and son-in-law, I have a few days free! Wheeeee!!! Eat, Bead, Sleep, REPEAT! The other reason I haven’t had much sleep lately is I have been staying up each night long after.most of you, posting entries to my blog … Read more
