This is a blog about how we came to have an on line store and the trials and tribulations of trying to succeed in business during a recession!

I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty!

You wanna know why I feel so pretty – well, I’ll tell you! I now know what I would look like blond, puffy lips, extra white teeth, tons of concealer, heavy-duty make-up and any colour eye shadow and lipstick you can imagine! And you can too! Yes, my friends, the only really bad part is first you have to take a picture of yourself without make-up and your hair pulled back, and yes, gasp…download it onto the internet!

Go to the site called There you register, and can then download your picture. Once you see your face on the computer ( Warning: This can be scary) you have to follow the instructions and put the blue dots where your eyes,mouth and chin should be. Please take note, if you do not get this right you can end up with a crooked mouth (like I did) or eyes that are crossed. After you complete that part the fun begins. First, pick a hairstyle. You get to choose from all kinds of celebrity doos.(Second Warning: You will not actually resemble the celeb just because you have their hair). Once you pick the style and fool around with it so it actually sits properly on your head, you can change the color and add highlights. After that you pick your make-up - blusher, foundation, concealer, eyeliner, shadow, lashes, lipstick, the works. You can even plumb up the lips, whiten the teeth. and change the color of your eyes. The only thing this site does not let you do is lose 10 lbs! I played around with it and decided that long locks are definitely not for me. Blond hair, well not so bad!

Na Na Na Na Na! We got the flu shot, we got the flu shot! We’re sooo excited we are beside ourselves! I won’t divulge how and where but suffice it to say that you definitely need a connection. O.K., maybe we pushed ahead in terms of waiting for the day when healthly people can get the shot, but who cares? We were never so happy to get a shot. It’s like everyone has gone crazy. Someone sneezes and you run away as fast as possible in the opposite direction. It’s scary times, People!

Work at BeadandSave Enterprises Inc. seems to be getting busier. Orders are coming in and people, both beaders and manufacturers are buying from us. We are also getting ready for the Holiday Boutique Day on December 3rd taking place at the Jewish General Hospital, in their auditorium. We plan on selling everything from gorgeous Pandora bracelets, necklaces and keychains to exotic Millefiore and wood and rhinestone beads on leather bracelets, pendant and lampwork necklaces and gorgeous kilt pins. So mark your calendars and plan to drop by and say hello – its from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. You can even stay and help us if you want!

O.K. Now I am really excited! I just realized that Pandora cell phone holders can also be attached to zippers as pulls. What a great idea!!! You can attach them to purses, jackets, sweaters – anything that has a zipper!

If you, or somebody you know is interested in hosting a Pandi Party – give us a shout at And don’t forget to visit us at – not only did we get our site ready for the holiday season, we added many more items to the ON SALE department. 

Good news, we have not killed each other yet, nor do we bear any visible scars!
