Happy to be so busy....

I am back to give you an update on things and to also post new pictures of some new stuff I have designed!!  Let's see...I participated in a vendor night for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of Lehigh Valley last Friday evening.  It was a wonderful evening for a wonderful cause!  I met some great ladies and got to spend the evening with a great friend who I met last year at a local craft fair.  She is a very crafty one herself making gift baskets, candles, lotions, soaps, etc.  She is also a consultant for Usborne Books & More.  Which is an awesome book company that has fantastic childrens books!  Since that night I have decided to also sign on as a consultant to do it part time to get books for my boys who enjoy them so much.  So if you are ever in need of some great books please check out my site you won't be disappointed and neither will your kids!!  I have also received four more custom orders this week and I am planning a open house to launch my line.  I have done a lot of designing this week as well and I am posting some pictures of my wares.  I am also happy to announce that my FB Page is at 99 fans!!  When it hits 100 I will be doing a giveaway!!  Tell your friends!!
Thanks for checking in and taking a peek at what has been happening!  Enjoy the new pics, I am having a bracelet moment in my head so that will be next time I'm sure!!

Ciao for now!

Some new pieces.....

I have really been slacking on my blog, but have really had my creative juices flowing!  I have decided that I will  blog a few times a month with new things going on and post pictures of my creations.  I am preparing for an event this Friday to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of Lehigh Valley.  I am so excited and hoping I have enough inventory to put on a fantastic presentation.  I have just finished some new charms made of polymer clay.  They are stamped with inspirational words and I am going to use them on a combination of Irish linen cord and also sterling silver chain.  So in my next post you will see those!  But this post I have a few custom order pics and also a few pictures of some new earrings that I have designed.  I hope you enjoy the pictures and pray for some warmer weather for NJ, I have been freezing the past few days!  Brrrrrrrr!!

Oh my!

Oh my has it been this long since I have posted?!?!  Well, honestly it has been crazy for me thankfully with orders, the kids, and this time of year.  I have such a love/hate relationship with this time of year!  I love spring here in NJ with all the beautiful trees, flowers, and warmer weather.  But then ugh, call in the pollen and yard work and I am not a happy girl!!  We spent the past weekend getting our fenced in backyard ready for the boys.  We decided to separate it in half and make a playground area for the boys and a grassy area for our crazy dog.  It came out just wonderful especially with the find of the day by my sister!  She found the boys a HUGE Little Tikes castle (for boys!) at a yard sale for, get this.....$15.00!!!  And it is awesome!!  The boys can climb and slide, there is even a trap door!!  The love it!!  So that and their sandbox, basketball hoop, and cars I think we will be in business for the summer!!! 
We then got up to our elbows in weeding our rock garden, which is the length of our driveway.  Probably half the length of a football field but feels like 10 miles long when I pick the hottest day so far to weed it!!  But it is finished and weed free, yay!  We still have a bit more to do but this weekend should cover it, well at least Saturday since Sunday is Mother's Day and I am OFF DUTY!!
I also have been able to get a little creative in my little bit of spare time that I had left after that and the boys!  I have designed three more pairs of earrings and a very funky cool ring!  Pics will be posted soon, I need to run them through the tumbler to shine and harden them up!
I am also getting prepared for an event to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of Lehigh Valley.  I am looking forward to showing my work and helping in every way I can to help this great cause.
I will be doing another giveaway here on my blog in the next couple of weeks!  It is going to be a good one so stay tuned!!
