New Additions Added!

Now that the Holidays are over I can do some catching up!

I have created a batch of Swarovski crystal cluster earrings a while ago but I have just got them on the website. Here are a few examples of what I've made. A few different colors using both Swarovski crystals and pearls.

So much to do with so little time! I'm in the process of the year end inventory, taking pictures of new designs, some designs have already had their pictures taken but still need to be added to the website. These earrings were a part of that stash. How did I get so far behind??

New Year's Resolution for 2009....Try to stay caught up!

Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself. Everytime I get motivated to get stuff done I get sick. Well, I'm just getting over yet another cold so hopefully I'm out of the woods with this one. I'm just getting my energy back now after a week of having none.

Well anyway, enjoy the new additions and I will hopefully have more coming soon! Busy! Busy! Busy!!!

We Say Goodbye

Saturday January 3rd 2009 we lost our dog Petey. She was 13 years old. She passed on us suddenly at 5:20 pm after eating her dinner and going out to go potty. She came back in and collapsed on the kitchen floor like she was having a seizure. She never came out of it after that. After 20 minutes of seizing up and relaxing she seized up one last time. She had been acting normal that whole day. She followed me around like she always does as I took the down the Christmas decorations and cleaned the house. She always would lay right where I would need to vacuum and she would always have to move. Now she's gone. We all miss her terribly. Tom and I haven't been without a dog for 15 years. It's a very strange feeling. As a family, we've been doing all we can to keep her in our memories. I made a picture collage for the kids so they can show Petey to all their friends. I'm working on a memorial video slideshow of her pictures. I hung the scratchboard portraits of both Petey and Tootsie up together on Saturday before Petey had passed. Now they are together again on the Rainbow Bridge with all of their other canine pals!

I just found the video making program on my computer! It's so easy and so much fun that I quick made a video slide show of my jewelry to show on youtube. It's been suggested to get on youtube to help advertise but I didn't know exactly what to post. I don't think I'm ready for tutorials yet. I think whatever tutorial video I could make is already out there. Then I discovered the video maker and it gave me the idea to showcase my photos in a video format for everyone to enjoy!

Here's the link to the video on You Tube.
