Happy Belated May Day!

I was lucky enough to participate in Artsy Mama's May Baskett swap and Kari couldn't have partnered me up better. I was partnered with the fabulous Susan. It was quite interesting since Susan and I had so many similarities in likes and dislikes I felt like I was building myself a basket almost.
Here is the basket that I sent Susan, i filled it to the rim with supplies for jewelry making since Susan too remakes vintage jewelry!
Susan made me the most loveliest basket and I love how she used a vintage sewing box in my favorite color of blue! Lola thought it was super cool, you can see her in the corner trying to figure it out!

Susan put everything together so nicely and I am so honored to recieve some of her art work and such a lovely basket and also to meet a new friend that is get this, local!

The rest of the fabulous stash inside the box, she filled it to the rim!

Susan totally spoiled Lola with gourmet doggy treats and Lola was in love with them. She especially like the dog boned shaped one that looked like it had frosting, she licked it like an iced cookie and I know she just loved them! Susan thank you so much for such a fabulous basket Lola and I both appreciated all of the goodies! A Special thanks to Kari for hosting this swap and for doing such a fabulous job pairing the partners together!

Happy Valentines Day

So this year I participated in an Amour Valentine swap that Cathy was kind of enough to organize. Lorena, from Rose Chic Friends was my swap buddy and man did she spoil me. I didn't do her creations justice when photographing them. I have to say that she is a fabulous painter and I loved everything that she sent me, in fact there was a bag of Lindor Truffles, gone already! Hmm now who could have eaten them all?

Anyways a big thanks to Cathy who organized the event!

Check out all of the lovely ladies that participated in this swap and their beautiful creations!

Snow, I am so ready for some Growth

I found myself wondering the faux flower aisle at Michael's last night, while trying to avoid rush hour and trying to soak in some spring feelings, I'm sure I looked odd as I walked slowly and took in each flower but it was great. I know it is only February, but I yearn for the bulbs to start popping up and let's just put it simple, I am not vacationing anywhere this winter and so I am stuck here with more snow. I leave you with some new jewelry added to the store. Come on I can't be the only one ready for spring! Check them out here

Still Here I Swear!

Yes I am still here, for some reason the summer and the fall always seem to catch up to me and I just can't keep up so I am sorry that I feel behind here. It has been a crazy fall with all sorts of things happening. I was lucky enough to take my good friend to the Junk Bonanza on her birthday and I am excited beyond delight to say I will be participating as a vendor at the Junk Bonanza next year! Already on the look out for some new jewels to remake.

Other than that I have been trying to make and make and make to prepare for the shopping season upon us. So hopefully I can share some new photos of things I have been making. I promise to try and be a better blogger, I just sometimes feel like I don't have anything interesting to say. Nothing new just the craziness of life. I need to just stop and smell all of the scents and the seasons so they don't pass me by so quick.

Anyhoo are a couple new designs that I know I actually photographed! You can find some new jewelry in my Etsy Shop too!

This one is already sold but I just love it!
