So I'm going to try and change things up a bit here.  In the past, this blog has been all about keeping my family, especially those without facebook, up-to-date with pictures.  But since I am trying to start a business from my hobby, I will now be putting more pictures of jewelry on here, in addition to the cute and fun pictures of the kids.  I have some things on etsy, but I've created way more than I would ever put on etsy - you know, the learning-a- new-technique-bracelets that have become my favorites and others that were one-of-a-kind and I like to much to sell.  So the people out there in the web world can see the kind of designer I am or have been and what I am progressing too and then, maybe mosey on-over to etsy and see what I am doing there.
And, maybe now I feel a little more official, since I had my first sale on Etsy in the last week - YEAH!  
First, I have to say a huge thank you to two other jewelry designers that I have only recently been following (and they are awesome) because I won some beads and a gift certificate to buy beads from their blogs - both in the last month.  I feel like the luckiest person because that just doesn't happens.  I wish some of that luck would rub off at the festivals around here so I can win a basket.
Thank you to Lorelei Eurto for the cool flower beads - so pretty.
And thank you to Amy Freeland for the gift certificate to Ornamentea - which has already been used.

And now here's some of jewelry shots - I'm debating whether to sell them.  They are both made extremely well, but the shell one is a choker length and I don't know if that is the length that people would like and is the best for it and the silver one - well, I can't decide if I want to keep it.  Plus, I need some better pictures.  If any jewelry makers follows this - how much jewelry that you make do you keep vs.  sell or giveaway?

And, of course, a cute shot of a kid.  After a day of fun in the sun, sometimes you just get tuckered out.
