Sometimes as you all know life gets in the way.
I was caught amidst the hustle and bustle of baseball , summer activities , vacations, family illnesses and other chaotic nonsense called life.
As I feel the end of summer approaching I cling secretely to the coming of the school schedule. You know the happiness a mother feels when life goes back into the normal mode of school, homework etc.
I can't wait. With each fall I feel a renewed sense of creativity.
Maybe it's the fall leaves, the crispness of the air but I am looking forward to it.
I have just returned from our summer vacation to St Maarten. It was lovely and much needed. I took all 4 of my children, which by the end of vacation my 21 yr old(the only girl) felt the need to remind us that she will never be doing this again.....

I have not been on to post lately since my every waking moment has been consumed with preparing my 7yr old Michael for his 1st Holy Communion.

I have also been experimenting with a few new designs. Feeling extra creative these day.
Well, my son's teacher is getting married this Saturday. I decided (since I must be the only one in the class that knows how) to bake a mini wedding cake to bring in and share tommorrow. I am throwing her a Wedding shower in the class. So cute. The kids will get a big kick out of it.
I am also going to have them each work on a scrapbook page for her and then assemble it at the end so she will have a scrapbook made by her students for her wedding day.
Hope it's not to corny,. But should be alot of fun.
Well have a great Tuesday everyone.

To actually have my work recognized I have to say is a real kick.
I truly enjoy what I do so for me it does't seem like work. Although I think I have put more hours into this business then anything I have ever done.
Between the research for designs and the networking between other bloggers my website , twitter, facebook, and flickr the list is endless.
But again very rewarding. I try to get my name out there any way I can.
At the bottom of this blog is a link to nominate mom bloggers so please take a moment to access the link and nominate me.
Thanks so much.
Here is the link for the article.

I have made and sold about 6 of these necklaces so far. I have done them in brown cording and in black cording. Although it is extremely tedious since the charms are all hand tied, it seems that this necklace is so popular with my customers.
I use different charms in silver and pewter, hearts, crosses, pictures of the Madonna. And I string amber glass beads for depth of color.
This necklace sells for $50.00. Well, have a great and productive day.

I don't know what it is about winter but I usually get most of my creative energy in the winter. I can't stop working. I guess that's perfect for this time of year.
Well, I am going to enjoy the snow and get some work done. Keep warm out there today.

Jewelry orders needed to be filled. rush, rush, rush...
Just took the tree down yesterday.
Back to normal hopefully.
My newest project I think will be watches. I am trying to create a stretchy band for my marcasite watch faces. Trial and error will prevail.
I'll keep you posted on how I do.
