crazy but awesome life....

Life gets away from us at times, but I always feel so fortunant to be able to do what I love! I'm married to my best friend, I create art and sell it, I'm still in awe that people actually want to pay for what I make....such a compliment! I work for my best friend selling wine....this job truly does'nt suck, and I'm a Mom to two wonderful, sweet, healthy, beautiful children! Life is so good, but we still get behind, frustrated, caught up in the rat race and we find ourselves forgetting to tell those closest to us how important they are to us and how we couldn't get through this rat race without them! The people in my life lift me up, support me, give me a reason, and make me want to be better! I love them so much and am so lucky to have them! Thank you!

What matters most.....

I'm going to share something I read that means so much to me and is so true.....

Some things don't matter much.
Like the color of a house.
How big is that in the overall scheme of life?
But lifting a persons heart, now that matters.
The whole problem with people is....
they know what matters, but they don't choose it.
The hardest thing on Earth is choosing what matters!

Branching out!

Okay, so i have been talking to other shops and such to find out where would be the perfect niche to sell more of my jewelry! I am building up a nice stock and need to get more of my pieces into the market! Of course, me being who I am, a dreamer, optimist, or just plain crazy; you decide....hope to see my pieces featured in a magazine, or on the red carpet on Drew Barrymore, perhaps....or in a cool shop, like Spool 72, or Anthropologie, etc. I could go on and on, but I don't want to bore you any more! A girl can dream, right? I also want to go to a big "art" show or festival somewhere? Maybe Austin, or Chicago? Or a Country Living Fair! Wouldn't that be cool? It could happen, right? Hopefully sooner than later! Please?!

Okay, this is me, freestyle blogging! I feel like I am on a creating high! It's all I can think about! Whether its looking in magazines for inspiration, other blogs, or etsy....or looking for items to create with, and then actually creating! Even looking in style and decorator magazines to see whats happening on the style  scene makes me want to create! I don't know if it's because people actually enjoy what I'm making or if it's like the floodgates of creativity have been opened and I can't create enough! Its awesome, and bad, all at the same time because I don't want to clean the house, or go out, I'd rather create, and when I do clean and do things that "need" to be done, I'm not fully vested because I'm still thinking of what my next project will be!!!!! Sleep is such a waste of time!!!!!

"After Midnight!" This is on of my favorite pieces made with a cool vintage pocket watch, blingy swarovski crystals add great flash, watch cogs, an awesome 1940's era NY state class pin, black freshwater pearl, and a lovely frosted crystal irradescent art noveau style face, all hanging from a cool gunmetal link chain! This piece always gets compliments and looks great casual and dressed up! I enjoy creating these necklaces so much, and it makes me so happy when people like and enjoy my work!
