We're going to the Ocean! Yes, we're leaving in the morning for Destin, Florida. We'll stop in Jackson, Mississippi overnight and then get up Thursday morning and drive into Destin. I have been there before as a "single" girl....but my son has only seen the ocean from Galveston, TX so I'm so excited for him to see the blue blue ocean and the white sand. We bought our snorkling gear today, we have our beach umbrella and swimsuits and of course.....Sunscreen! Sam is very light skinned so I make him wear a swim shirt which he doesn't complain about too much! I can't wait to sit on the beach with my husband and son and just ... R E L A X! I'm taking magazines on quilts and beads and a book I'm currently reading so I'll have lots to read...I love to read!

And when I return...I promise to have a new piece of jewelry to show!

Your life is your message!

A copper pendant measuring 1 1/2" square on a copper chain. I added lots of colorful beads so it can be worn with just about anything! It has a baked and antiqued shiny finish which makes it look really rustic!

I made an anklet out of pink heisha beads and a heart charm from Thailand and a sterling silver clasp. Click on the picture to see it up close.....if you want a better look at the pendant.

I also just stamped, antiqued and tumbled some charms so I'll be putting them into jewelry pieces this weekend.....visit again soon and take a look!

This is Sam! We were playing with his BB gun in the back yard today and it was not working so in frustration, he decided he needed a newer one that would work but he was down to only $6.00. So he decided to have a Lemonade Stand! He actually sold out of Lemonade and made over $6.50 so he was pretty excited!
This is why I haven't any jewelry to post......he keeps me hopping but I wouldn't want it any other way! I just love this boy!

Gem Faire Came to Town!

Wow, the Gem Faire came to town on Friday morning and I, needless to say, spent most of Friday shopping and Saturday morning. I had to stop.....I was getting "beadshoppers overload". It's where every bead starts looking the same and you can't remember what you bought and what you didn't. I was having fun shopping for my friend PrairieEmporium.com, it's fun spending someone else's money! I also picked up some sterling silver findings and quite an assortment of copper clasps and spacers! I can't wait to get started beading but it is "summer break" and my 10 year old son keeps me very busy during the day and by evening I'm ready to crash and burn!!!!

School Is Out For The Summer..........

This is the first day that School is Officially out. And this is the first day that I'm finished with my job for the last school year. So....I now have time to make some jewelry. These are the latest pieces I made this morning. I sold the orange owl bracelet at the Blue Dome Festival so I found this green one and I love it!

Sam and I are off to Grand Lake with some dear friends tomorrow so I won't be making anything over the next few days....I'll be getting sunburned and having fun!
