We're Having Some Weather!

 It is snowing and blowing. We got 10" over the night and it's still coming down. I guess this will be a good day to sit tight and make some jewelry. I made this one last night :)

 I'm working on getting some hearts and flowers and pink and red valentine goodness into the shop before Valentine's Day. This one is kind of subtly valentiney. I think it would be good all year round. I really love these fire polished faceted glass beads. They have so much depth and of course the Fallen Angels Brass heart charm is perfection.

Black Friday and Soo Cold!

 We've got a lot of snow and it's really cold. I think I'll stay home and make some jewelry. I can't quite imagine standing in line at WalMart for whatever their big sale is. I should have some new lovelies to post tomorrow. Maybe I'll feel like going out for supplies then. It's been a long time since I've had a day to just stay home, I'm really enjoying it!

Climate Shock

 I just spent a week in sunny California helping my sister with her yard. It was gorgeous weather in the high seventies and low eighties the whole week I was there. I've lived in the northwest all my life and most of the stuff we planted in her yard were things I've only known as house plants. It was a lot of fun, I wish I was going to be there to see them all bloom.

While I was gone we had a huge storm with a lot of hail and wind gusts up to 85 mph. It wreaked a bit of havoc with my backyard. Blew down the pergola, blew our wood adirondack chairs into the pond and tipped over and broke a lot of my pots and deck furniture.

Gift Tags

I like how tags look on a package. I also really enjoy making them. Such a simple thing and still so satisfying. I recently sold almost all of the tags I had posted in my shop opening up the possibilities for making even more :)

Decorates :-)

I was asked by a friend to create some jewelry for her five year old niece for Christmas. That of course led to my head bursting with sparkly fun pieces that had to come out. So many possibilities that I created a new shop section. When my daughter was very young, she called any ornamentation whether it was jewelry, cupcake sprinkles or glitter glue, "decorates". I really wanted to call my shop section for little girls "decorates" but in my continuing effort to not seem too peculiar (how am I doing?) I just called it Little Girl Sparkles, but anyone who has seen this really should just read that as Decorates ;)
