Free Gift with Necklace Purchase!!

I failed to mention! Any necklace purchase from either of my stores........ OR ..... made between now and Monday at midnight, will recieve a free jewelry pouch! It's beautiful! Just mention my blog when you order!

Getting Discouraged!

This is a great candle, don't you think? It comes from It's called, "Cozy Home and Cinnamon." Check the site out. You won't be disappointed!

I know I should be happy that I've sold a few things. But I'm discouraged because I had a great sale on my website for the last week, and I had only one person take advantage of it! And it was a $5.00 pair of earrings! All that promoting! Then today I added this great simple black necklace and hardly had any lookers!(sigh!).
But I did find that when I was on twitter, that a lot of you DID have sales today! And that was great! It made me feel better to think there really are people buying right now, we just need to be patient.
I even met someone who has a shop that lives right here in my hometown!
You need to check it out! Great candles!
I guess the end of the day has turned out to be much more pleasant than the beginning! Talk at you soon!

Beautiful Monday!!

Good morning all!
It's another beautiful Monday, and I need to get something done. I should do some cleaning today and maybe get a few groceries (if we want to eat, that is). But I also know I'll have to do something creative. I bought some new beads this weekend, and I can't wait to create with them!! I'll be sure to show you my stuff.
I've found some great shops on etsy lately. Have you? A lot of jewelry designers out there. Go jewelry designers!!!!
This bracelet was just added to my etsy shop late last night.
I'm also thinking about making another bracelet like the white one in the picture. Do you think it would have any appeal? I made this for a customer who loves it and says I should make another to sell. Ummm! I'm just not sure....
Anyway, have a great day all! We'll talk later then

I was supposed to pack for a long weekend away last night, when I walked by my workstation and got a creative itch. So I sat down for 5 min. (actually turned into an hour) and played with a few beads. This is the end product. What do you all think? I posted it in my web store last night: Take a look and tell me what you think. Oh, maybe I should stop making them, I don't know. But I do love them.

My Little Darlin'

What a week, so far!!!

I've have had a fantastic week!! No, I haven't had any sales! That would be the icing on the cake, though. But I have a brand new baby granddaughter!!! She was born Monday afternoon at around 2:15 p.m. and she weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. What a beautiful baby! No prejudice here! She is the second grandchild I have. The first, her big brother is almost 4. The beautiful thing about the whole thing is, I was able to watch the entire birth, both times!!! Who says there is no God? How could we have just "evolved?" It's the most beautiful miracle a person could ever witness. And I'm so glad I was able to.
I just wanted to share that with everyone, and I hope your week is good too!

Happy Monday!!

I used to hate Mondays, but lately I'm finding they're not so bad after all. I've been enjoying looking at everyone's blogs. And I've found that you don't have to say a lot to say something, you know what I mean?
I really had a great weekend. I had 3 sales this weekend, that's a first. So what if it was to the same person! A sale is a sale! That's what my friends keep telling me. I'm finding that my purse pull line is becoming a hit. This is just a sample of them:

I also have been working hard on getting a couple of new necklaces in my shops! I only wish I could sell one of my necklaces! This one in the picture is one of my absolute favorites! My husband told me I couldn't keep it, though, because he didn't want to keep supporting my jewelry addiction! Go figure! Me, with a jewelry addiction? There are so many wonderful etsian jewelry makers out there! I've seen some outstanding work, and it really puts my things to shame. But, I guess, we all have our place, don't we? And we all appeal to someone.
Have a great Monday everyone!!!

Busy Thursday

Hey everyone!
I know I was going to write something today. I've been busy creating and lost track of time. But I was able to appreciate this marvel of creation, a magnificent dragonfly! It's in the picture. That made my day!!
I was getting tired of creating more purse pulls, also in the pictures, but it paid off. I sold 1 and got an order for another. Great day, I guess. Hope your day was good. And, as I promised, soon I will write more about myself.

Thursday turned out to be a pretty good day!

When I got up yesterday, I wasn't quite sure how the day was going to go. I didn't sleep well the night before. But what a nice surprise when I turned on my computer! I had 2 sales!! In one day!! How sweet it is! What was really nice is that there was one from my etsy site, and one from my web site. That was my first from my web site. That sale didn't run as smoothly as my etsy sale. I had some issues with PayPal. My problem, not theirs. But we were able to iron things out and get the sale completed. Thank goodness!! Now its all set for more! I guess this is a good time, then to add this carnelian necklace to my sites. I love this!
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day today.
Next time I write, I'll give you a little background, ok?

Should mention. I put that picture of those earrings on this page, because they are my favorite! I just finished a pair in silver too. Haven't put them in my shop yet.

Time to get started

I guess its time to really start my blog. I've been working hard lately on trying to get my website, off the ground. It takes more work than I ever imagined. But my son who owns a graphic design business ( has been a HUGE help. Now I just need to sell something so it won't feel like my time has been wasted.
Then there's my etsy store! ~~ I never realized how much promoting was necessary to make a go of it. I'm tired. But today I made my second sale!! Woo hoo!!! It IS paying off. So I guess, just keep at it. It's a slow time right now, but it'll pick up, I'm sure. Got to stay positive.
