There is still time to enter. I'm giving away a single red pearl coat necklace. Read more →

On a serious earring-making kick lately. Personally, that is the one piece of jewelry I can't leave the home without. Necklaces are ok but I need to wear earrings or else I feel like I look like a man ha ha! I'm using the last of my Tagua beads for the bottom two pairs of earrings. I've had them since I first started making jewelry and then I stopped, I don't know why I do things like that. Anyway, I... Read more →

My inbox has a lot of pretty stuff coming up for the Spring, like Ruche's latest lookbook for Spring 2012, Enchantment (click images for larger view) Ever since I cancelled getting the Anthropologie catalog, I'm pretty happy to spend time staring at these photos (I actually think it's styled nicer!) I must confess that as beautiful as these outfits out, the lighter pastel colors scare me. I don't know if I can pull off an entire soft, pastel outfit -... Read more →

This week's tutorial came from the lovely folks at Photojojo. They show us how to make a Scarf Camera Strap using a silk scarf. You know those straps can get pretty uncomfortable after having them on for a while, a little rough around the neck. This would make a great and more skin-friendly alternative. How to Make a Scarf Camera Strap The tutorial even shares some interesting facts about silk and it's uses throughout history (thanks to Mythbusters). Read more →

I had a three day weekend and what happens? I catch a cold that pretty much kicked my butt. I spent most of the weekend laying on the couch blowing my nose. Go figure. I was hardly on the computer most of the weekend and my shop update was delayed a little. I just could not engage my brain in anything. So here's what's new... New earrings added to Etsy, Last Mermaid SOLD & Sweet Jade. The Jade earrings hang... Read more →

Did you do anything for Valentine's Day? As much as I enjoy the decorations (like for Halloween & Christmas). Mike & I don't really make that big of a deal of the day. Not that we're super romantic and every day is Valentine's Day (ha!), we're just not too smoochy smoochy about it. However we both have a sweet tooth and we'll use any excuse to eat candy, cake, ice cream. I use to make a cake for Valentine's Day... Read more →

Yesterday's photo for February Photo A Day was "Inside Your Closet". For a minute I thought that maybe I should straighten it up a little. Try to make my closet look pretty like out of an issue of Real Simple Magazine or something. But then I said "Screw it!". I love having a walk in closet but it's so cluttered that there's really not much room to move around in. I still try to keep it all sorted by color... Read more →
