Surprises and Sales!

A big thanks to my friend Megan for buying a whopping 8 pairs of earrings from me today!  (Here is a few of them. I hope her friends are not looking!) And, for her company last night at our friend, John's, surprise 30th birthday party. We had so much fun. Even though we raced to get there in time to not spoil the surprise at breakneck speed, John had already come home early so we ended up being the ones surprised! The surprises didn't end there, either. But we promised John we wouldn't embarrass him online so you'll just have to imagine!
He had admired my copper bracelet a while back so I made him a more manly looking version which I think he really liked. (I say "think" because by the time I gave it to him last night, he was happy, happy, happy!)
It's back to routines again tomorrow. I have enjoyed my time off even though I didn't get as much done as I wanted to. Hope you all have a great week!

Remember to:  Love your animals as unconditionally as they love you!

A Season of Thanks (and clutter!)

I thought it appropriate that with my first blog I should mention how much I appreciate all the good things in my life, past, present, and still to come. It's not always easy to remember how wonderful the gift of life is on a daily basis, but with this wonderful season already upon us I wanted to make sure you know I am giving thanks!

That said, welcome to my blog. Today has been an experience in finding out how to blog, how to make my blog page attractive, how to link, how to draw interest, how to fix this darn layout and finally, to keep it short and sweet and to the subject! I have to give a big "shout out" thank you to Shabby Blogs for their inspiration, without whom I wouldn't have attempted to do this!

As you can see from the pictures, my work desk is definitely suffering from abandonment!

Look for more to come. I hope I can keep you interested.
