Happy New Year's Eve!

Today is the big party day--Woot! I hope everyone has a very fun and very safe New Year's Eve!

I bought a little dress, some strappy shoes, and even a swanky wrap ;) Needless to say, I am ready to have a great time!

I hope we all have a very fabulous 2009, and I hope your 2008 was great too!

Let's all remember to live, laugh, and love as hard as we can!

The Day Before New Year's Eve....

And I finally worked something new into the shop before 2009! Yay!

These are fabulous! They are the Chelsea hoops - LARGE and in charge. They are about 2 and 1/4" across, but have posts so they are sturdy in your ears.

And right now I am offering them at an introductory price, so hurry in to my shop!

Happy Ho Ho Ho To You!

Twas the night before Christmas......and I am still at work--ACK!

I am worried about a few packages that have not been delivered yet - one was guaranteed over-night delivery.

Yes, there are things I will do different next year.

Anyway, I am going to leave my studio here in the next few minutes and try to enjoy my Christmas!

If you are in need of any last minute gifts, let me suggest gift certificates! I will email the picture for you to print out and then give you a secret code for your loved one to use to redeem them treasures.

Merry Christmas!

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!

I have been crazy busy and I am still stressing about the post office delivering everything on time!

I did take a moment today to make something new to give my niece for Christmas. I hope she likes it! I went ahead and listed it in my shop and one sold right away! Totally unexpected!

To keep, or not to keep?

I am sure this happens a lot, but I am in a pickle. I really want this necklace, but I really need to sell it.

Sure, I could make another, but it will never be just like this one!

So I decided that I will list thin in my shop, as the Sterling Rose, and after awhile, if it does not sell, then it is mine!

So, I guess the question is, how long do I wait? It just sits there, taunting me!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Experiments In Brass

Today I found a sheet of brass and decided to play!

The result? The Brass Rose Necklace!

I really like it, and I think I will also make a sterling silver one. I would love your feedback!

Sunday, What A Fun Day!

Now it is another Monday, but before that, it was Sunday!

I love Sundays anyway, but this one was extra special :)

Why? Because when I got the Sunday paper, I saw my very own hand on the front page! Then I saw my mug on the front page of the Lifestyles section! Yay!

Humberto Martinez, a features reporter for the Beaumont Enterprise, wrote a great article on local artisans and how they are utilizing Etsy to sell their crafts ( photos by Guiseppe Barranco). I was one of the lucky Southeast Texans to be included. Check it out:

I think it is so fabulous because most people I talk to around here have never even heard of Etsy. I am hoping that this article will move them to check it out and buy more handmade this Christmas.
