Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Hi all! I'm finally back after a long absence! Sorry for that (again). Spring has sprung and now summer's almost here. It's already been soooo hot in Charlotte as well as stormy. It's almost as if we missed spring totally! Kevin's doing really well in school and Barney's back seems to be all better, so things are definitely looking up!


I've been quite busy since my last post. Kevin and I went to the mountains over his spring break in April which included Easter weekend. He had a great time playing in the snow (yes, snow) and even got to make snowballs. Then two days later it was sunny again and he was riding his bike. Go figure! We had lots of fun getting back to the mountains. It's always nice. :)

It snowed during spring break last week....

the boy likes to jump!


This morning I had a very pleasant surprise. A pair of my new chalcedony earrings was on the front page of Etsy! I was so tickled! It was very, very unexpected.

Etsy Front Page 5.6.09

Thank you Etsy gods!

I've been creating lots of new pieces for my shop. As always, I'm struggling with the pics. It takes me forever since I'm so very picky and hate it when the sun keeps going in and out of the clouds. Can't get the white balance correct to save my life and it's so frustrating! Here is the necklace that matches the earrings that were on the front page. (I such a sucker for chalcedony.)

And these use natural colored chalcedony (not dyed).

I love the cut of these briolettes.
They aren't being sold as a set, but would make a beautiful one!


Also, I'm about to hit a milestone in my shop. I'm almost to 700 total sales! I'm so very excited about that! And with today's front page appearance, I made it to 4000 hearts! :D

So as a result, this is how I'm feeling today.

This is Kevin's "Happy Shirt." He picked it out all by himself. It's his favorite shirt now. Mine too! You just can't help but feel happy when you look at it. He's such a sweetie!

Well, I have to run. I just wanted to pop in and catch up with everyone. Since I will be adding these new pieces to my shop (and more), I thought I'd give you all the first sneak peek.

And I can't forget this. Solid 14K and AAA blue topaz.

Multi-color sapphire rondelle and blue topaz necklace in goldfill.

Look for these and more coming soon!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and great rest of the week! Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time....
