About Me

My photo
Married for 15 years and blessed with three wonderful children, I am a self taught jewelry designer always looking to learn new things! I have been making jewelry for about 8 or so years now and I love every minute of it. Between working full time and running here and there for little league, jewelry making is my relaxing and unwinding time. Live life to the fullest!

Nothing in life is certain, only death.  I have had such a hard couple months.  My whole family has dealt with death and the loss of loved ones. 
My wonderful father in law passed away in February and took a piece of my heart with him.  I love him so much.  He was the only father that I have known for the last 17 years.  He always made me laugh and will always hold a very special place in my heart. 
I also lost my grandfather a week ago.  He was the strongest man I know.  Even though cancer had taken parts of him, he still fought back and had a wonderful will to live.  He was 88 years old when he passed and he lived a wonderful life. 

Heaven received 2 amazing angels and I know they are both looking over us.

Whew, times have changed!

Well Hello there!   I am trying this again with the blogging world and hopefully, I will learn more and keep this thing going.   That is my goal.  :) 

I was reviewing my blog after a while away from it and my what a difference.  I have come a long way both personally and professionally.  My shop is now 2 1/2 years old and I am coming up on my 3000 sale soon.  WOW!!!   I cannot believe it.  My dreams are starting to come true.  It shows what a little hard work and determination can do.  Christmas 2012 was the busiest ever and I hope to out do that Christmas 2013.

My advice to any Etsy shop, whether just starting out or have been an Etsian for a while and just waiting for the magic moment of the first sale is KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND KEEP AT IT, IT WILL COME!!
