So, here I am.....

The girl that said she'd never blog. The far from computer savvy girl that is always up for a challenge despite a serious lack of time.My blog goals. Do I have blogging goals? Hmmm, I guess I should. So I pledge to be funny, lighthearted, not vent or complain to much and maybe just maybe share a crumb of wit and wisdom on occassion.I will most likely chat about etsy, my addiction and muse. the incredible artsists and friends I have found in a community that oozes with creativity, friendship, support and a home for all things handmade.You will hear me ramble about the insanity of my life including my 3 boys, ages 12, 16 and 53. Yes, that last one I am married to, but trust me, he is just as much boy as man. After 17 years of marriage I find myself raising him along with them. Then again, he would probably say the same of me at times. I will often speak of friends I would go to the ends of the earth for and a family that more often than not defines dysfunction. Then again, I strongly believe a functional family is the stuff legends are made of.I am a lover of music of all kinds and not so much the TV ( except maybe Glee). I have an addiction to handmade glass, especially venetian and lampwork beads as well as unique pottery. I have made a concerted effort to tame my jewelry fetish with my own creations which can be seen at you haven't figured out by now, I can jabber my jaws and my fingers as if someone could care what I have to say.

Moving Too Fast

That's what the calendar seems to be doing these days. Selling jewelry makes you think almost a season ahead, or at least a holiday ahead. This makes the calendar go by a little to fast for me. Not to mention, the holidays, even the quick ones seem to last forever.

So here I am in January, not even through a birthday party or a school holiday and already I am working on these. I am not a big fan of pink ( or reds for that matter), but these Venetian Beads just make me swoon. i admit, I do miss getting these little jewels as gifts, but it is also so much fun to sell them to the person who then feels they've purchased the perfect gift.

I haven't quite figured out how to get my husband to start buying me other peoples jewelry creations, but I am definitely working on it. In the mean time, I have bought these from Jewelyrie, and these from the most wonderful modcustomjewelry for myself. I deserve it!
