Halloween fun

Halloween was filled with candy, bats, and the cutest little..... sweet 100 tomato you ever saw. Little Marcus was dressed all in red with a hat that looked like a tomato top and a large produce sticker on his chest. He made himself at home at all our neighbors, just wanted to walk right in- silly boy. He is not a shy one. I think he/I probably had way too much candy last night.

Life is AWESOME!

I guess I'm just feeling good, but I do think I'm pretty blessed. I have been able to find more and more time to spend in my studio creating. In fact, last week I rearranged my space and it functions even better for me. Sometimes all one needs is a fresh perspective and a positive attitude. Things seem to be falling right into place for me.

I haven't blogged in a while, but I hope to do it a little more. Since last time I blogged, we went on a week vacation in New England visiting family and seeing my old hometown. It was such a beautiful visit. I was also featured in a blog and sold my first piece through Etsy. So I've been moving right a long on a happy note. I've been doing very well in the other galleries and stores selling my jewelry.

I would like to mention here that if you would like to pick up gifts for yourself or someone else I'm doing a friends and family sale at my Etsy shop
I will give a 30% refund via Paypal once payment has been made- all you have to do is tell me how you heard about my 30% off and you'll get the refunded discount of 30%. Yeah! Plus free shipping. Sign up for my fan club on Facebook- I just started it and I'll list new pieces and specials there.

Happy shopping

No I'm just Fat!

Today I worked at the dental office and first thing this morning a patient said with a twinkle in her eye and excitement in her voice "Oh your pregnant!" or something just as rude as that. I was like uh... no. How embarrassing for everyone. Not to mention crappy for me. This is the third time since I've had my son that this has happen. But I've lost 20 pounds since the last time. The first time was the worst. This old lady looked at me and I saw it was coming because she'd look at me then down at my stomach and back up again. She said, "When is your baby due?" I said, "I had him 3 months ago." Then she proceeds to look me up and down again. She follows up with "Are you pregnant again?" I just said, "NO, I'm just Fat." I guess it happens but it stinks when it happens to you. I need a t-shirt that says "No, I'm not pregnant, I'm just fat... what's your excuse."

Sweet Love- a short story

There was a quiet stir in the air that was unsettling. The evening sun had set and the air had grown chilly. I walked by the light of the street lamps to my dark house. Even though I was alone I felt comforted by an inner peace. I could feel that winter was approaching and the warm glow of sun lit leaves would be fading away. I remember this time of year as a happy time; always full of cider, crunching leaves, and family. But it was mid-winter that I dreaded most, when the excitement of the holidays end, and it seems like winter couldn't get any colder, it gets colder. But this night was different. It was unreal. Nothing seemed natural, almost staged. As I approached my door and drew the keys from my pocket, I noticed that a sweet smell of cookies was creeping from behind the door like a loving invitation down memory lane. I put the keys in and turned the knob. As I entered my house the smell engulfed me, filling my soul with swirling thoughts of childhood that I did not remember. I paused, only for a moment and inhaled the pleasant scent of cookies. As I looked around the dark house that was only lit by the faint street lamps I couldn't see anyone or any cookies. My family was all far away like my distant childhood, only a faded thought that gets more difficult to remember everyday. Who could have created this perfect scent? This feeling of a mother's love? I closed my eyes. Could I be dreaming?

How surprised was I when a fellow Etsian (Kerry) chose me as one of the artist to blog about. I just finished typing my rough draft for the feature. I'll be sure to mention it when it's up! I'm so excited, what a great thing she is doing for other artists!

Kerry does beautiful original art that is whimsical and enchanting! Check her out and her blog!

Working Hard

I'm try to stay positive about my jewelry, but sometimes I feel frustrated. I want so badly to have more time to make jewelry and it seems I spend more time on the computer. I keep trying to get feed back online but get no answers? I wonder if my Etsy account is working right? It's probably the time of year and sales are slow- at least that's what I'm told. Oh well, I just have to keep at it- like a diet but in reverse. I've been working hard in the studio to create new designs and hope to have some of them posted in a week!

Where does the time go?

I feel as though there is not enough time in the day to do everything I want and need to do. I miss my college days- where all my time was spent creating and learning. I can hardly believe that school is starting again for everyone and August is winding down. As a kid it seemed like time went sooooo slow and now every year goes quicker and quicker- AHHHHHH! I love looking at my son and see the future as a kid again through his eyes, and hopefully a little slower.
