Sometimes I make sense and sometimes I *don't*

A little Christmas Help!

OK, I have done it too, wander around looking for the perfect things and either I end up buying stuff I'm not really that excited about...or nothing and have to go back out again. So today I'm gonna show you some of my faves and hopefully some great ideas for Christmas gifts.

A girl cannot have to many cool pouches!! These little bags by are just Darling!!

And this girl makes the most beautiful cards!!! Just lovely and the price is so reasonable!

Ya, that last post was a little dark for me...ok, you saw my big freakin' grin in my pic......I DO smile a lot. So, sorry if I brought the room down!! Why do holidays bring out the grinch in us? I the only one? NO, I KNOW I'm not, I have to drive on the freeway with ya'll, there are more grinch's out there than just me and I want to HIT you....yet, smack you.....get outta my way, will ya.....we have to share the same road and you are up my tiny car's rear end with your gross fat gas-eating giant ugly SUV (OR truck...why do the jerks drive WHITE trucks....sorry to any of you nice white truck driver's out there, there must be at least one or two of you.....somewhere....) You make me want to say words that might make me go to hell!!!!!!


Ok, well, now...... (works up nice LA white toothed smile)'s my newest piece of heaven........

Ever feel like you are being Targeted?

Like you could look up and there would be an anvil on it's way down....coming right at your head?

Oh how about sitting in your car and feeling like something is gonna ram right into you. I think this is a reaction to stress. You ever get that? I walk around ducking and hiding because I'm SURE something is gonna get me sooner or always does!

I suppose that with the holidays right around the corner especially woman will feel like that. Like some big awful thing will happen if we dont create the prefect holiday for our family. We have to have the perfect presents, well thought out and lovingly created...for everyone!! Then there are the cardsw..of which I just cannot handwrite anymore, I'm sorry, I can't do guess what, I'm waiting for that friendship that will be out the window cuz I couldn't write out my best wishes to their card. Sheesh, so many expectations.

For me, it's all about hanging out, eating good food and hopefully having one or two moments that make you gasp. Connections with old friends, conversations with mothers and sister, a family member finally singing for all, and with a very nice voice to....seeing how big your nephew got. Seeing how gentle your son is with his new girlfriend. Seing how gentle my husband is with his lovely 14yo daddys girl. Life is full of gasps. I want them ALL.

Oh, that picutre is of a rose necklace that I just finished....isn't it purtty?? I have set a little red coral cab in the middle. Its for sale on my Etsy account check it out!!

Balance Challange

Its always a struggle for me to find and maintain balance in my everyday life. Mostly I would just put everything on the back burner and make jewelry. But there IS a business side of it that must be dealt with. But REALLY, I mean, I just want to do my ART! (whine appropriately) I guess I could end up really soon just sitting in piles and piles of my own jewelry. That would be bad! People are supposed to want to want to wear this stuff!!

So, I goota sell it somehow. What I want to do is just make it and not worry about what happens beyond that.....yes, really realistic, right???

More Jewelry stuff

What can I say......I GOTTA do it! So if you stumble in'll see it for sure!!

This is a necklace that I had so much fun making....I love hearts and this is fun because every one I make has it's own personality. I have oxidized the chain and kept the heart shiny bright silver......isn't it cool? It gives it an edgy look!

This second set is made with Swarovski Crystal Hearts and sterling silver. I have selectively antiqued it to give it a rather edgy look.

I donated this set to help raise funds at a silent auction for Kids Konnected

Well the holidays are approaching fast and it's that time...time to start shopping for our loved ones before all the good stuff is gone!!!

So go check out my jewelry site, I'd love to make you something special!! And there are plenty of lovely, well-made and unique items, I gift-wrap for free!!

Big sale gong on right now....check it out!!!!
