I’m a winner!

So excited to see I was a featured winner on's monthly customer showcase! I didn’t even know. Was checking my Google Analytics and lo and behold, there was a significant increase for Thursday. Upon further investigation, I had a nice surprise!!

Treasury Crazy!

I have been making some cool Etsy Treasuries this week and really enjoyed it. First two that I made I included (of course) my own pieces of jewelry! In fact, that was how I got the inspiration for the themes! I was a little bummed to read in the Etsy forums that Etsy Admin. probably won’t pick them for the Front Page if you include your own items.  I think that is a little bit unfair, but I failed to research Treasury guidelines beforehand so, my bad! I do so want to be on the Front Page!

So anyway, I made up some fun Treasuries and really tried hard…I mean, hard,  to make them Front Page worthy…and now I’m thinking that I sure hope some of those people who I included will take pity on poor ol’ me and include me in Treasuries of their own (if they make any, that is!), since I can’t toot (I like to say, honk) my own horn!
So here they are. Take a look. Hope you enjoy.

Lucky 50th!

I was very lucky to sell my 50th item to a wonderful repeat customer, GeoffBe, who makes his lucky lady or ladies (!) happy, I'm sure! He bought one of my favorite bracelets called Fruity Pebbles and picked out the pretty rose and copper earrings. Thanks, Geoff. It feels good to reach 50! Sales, that is!

Fun & Inspiration

Oh how I love going to Elaine Ray’s trunk shows at Ornamentea. I get so inspired! Elaine had some new goodies that I hadn’t seen yet (even though I snuck a peek around her workshop a couple of weeks ago!). There were some great pieces of jewelry on display to inspire using her beads. I loved the hoops idea that, I think, Tracey of Ornamentea designed! I was also inspired by Art Bead Scene bird’s nest design using Elaine’s bead caps upside down as little nest!

Can’t wait to show the bracelet I’m going to make with the large rectangular bead!!

Happy Sunday! Don’t forget to enjoy your Spring!
