Good Monday! How was your weekend?

I had a fantastic show on Saturday!

It was fun, in a great artsy venue, a nice crowd, lots of awesome vendors, and good Holiday sales.

I had made up some new items so that I would have plenty of selection and what didn't sell at the show, I'm listing on Etsy in the next couple of days, so be sure and come check the new stuff out. There are some great sets that I made up in all price ranges that are perfect for gifts!!

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend and has a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving week!!!

Happy Holidays...

I'm prepping for 3 holiday shows in a row, this Friday night, this Saturday, and next Saturday, and I'm running around like crazy.

So much to do and I want to get some more jewelry made just to be sure that I have enough stock, I feel like a one-man factory LoL.

Kid's These Days... LoL...

I just had to share this story!

To make a long story short, my son, who is 9, is and always has been a very early riser (much earlier than me or my husband) and has learned to keep himself busy while we "night people" finish our sleep.

He knows that he's not allowed to do certain things, such as play computer games, and he's usually very good about it.

Well this morning when I woke up I walked into the other room and saw him sitting on the computer. Still groggy, my first thought was --oh, great, off to a good start this morning-- but I casually walked over and said "You know your not allowed on the computer in the mornings"...

Then he said --and here's where it gets surreal-- "Well, I was just putting together this Keynote presentation. Wanna see it?"

"huh?" --remember, I'm still groggy... maybe I misunderstood...

Then he said "Come look, I went through the basic tutorial and decided to explore the other features on my own"

???

Low and Behold, he had made an entire Keynote slideshow presentation about the fun things in life, like the playground (exercise, friends, etc) and more.

I was stunned! When did 9 year olds get this smart?

I'm Late, I'm Late...

EART Blog Ring - Getting Prepped for the Holidays.

Well, honeslty, I'm not a good "preparer-aheader" :) --I'm scrambling now trying to make some extra pieces to last through my several holiday craft shows, and the "hopefully" holiday rush of online sales.

I don't actually make holiday specific items, so I don't need to prepare there, I just need to have enough stock so that I'm not a complete mess all winter! LOL.

Anyway, that said... back to work ; )

Check out how the rest of the team preps for the holiday season by reading their posts, starting here: Michelle's Charm World Blog

What do Spirals Mean to You?

I love spirals and I notice that a lot of other people do to!

What is it about them? the fluidity? the simplicity? their eternal feeling?

What do you think?

I've feature two of my jewelry pieces today that are all about spirals. I'm offering a FREE pair of simple spiral earrings when you purchase either one of the featured items. Put FREESPIRAL in notes to seller on Etsy!
