New Camera, revamped kiln and a 25%off Coupon for my etsy shop!

You might have noticed that there have not been any new beads lately. 
This has 2 sad reasons. 
First, my beloved Camera G7 which trustedly has made pictures of my rosaries and beads for 8 years, died a sudden death almost 5 weeks ago. It could be revived for a few days, but then I had to let it go. 

Searching for a new one was quite the adventure, but 10 days ago I got a Canon G15 and the learning curve was unexpectedly steep. 
Tons of new functions I don't need and problems to get the camera to work properly with the settings I need..well I also have a new photo tent and I am still learning....

Then 2 days after my camera, my kiln controller broke down. My kiln is well over 10 years old and there were no easy accessible digital controllers around at that time, at least not in my country. So a good friend built me a digital controller from "scratch" using an old computer, writing the programming himself etc. 
Suddenly the computer would not react anymore. I had to wait for our friend to come and visit us ( he lives almost 700km away) for my kiln to get repaired. 

Now everything is back to working order and the first "new" beads are in the kiln. Pictures to follow soon ;-) 

To make up for this long waiting and to make room for the new beads, I offer an exceptional sale in my etsy shop. You get 25% off every order over 20€ with the coupon code NEWCAMERASALE.
Valid until Sunday 22nd June!
