Cats And Jewelry!

Copper spiral earrings with peals

Ricki and Icky on a lazy Sunday afternoon

 It's been an excellent week so far filled with friends, swimming, working in the studio, making and mailing orders, time spent with my daughter, and the business workshop, Hello Soul Hello Business with Kelly Rae Roberts and Beth Nichols. And last night I went to Underworld: Awakening in Imax 3-D. What an experience it was! :)

Above are some images I photographed over the week!

New Jewelry!

It was a lovely, quiet weekend for me. Finally took some photos of the jewelry I recently made. To see more of my jewelry you can pop over to my Etsy shop.

Another Snow Day!

Another snow day and all is well! The chickens are in the oven, the kids are safe and snug and warm. I have pages to bind onto journal covers, jewelry to make and a painting to begin. Life is beautiful! Have a happy weekend everyone!

Lately, the trees surrounding my house have been visited by dozens and dozens of crows, all at once. I love crows so I think it's pretty cool. Others believe it's a sign of death and that I better watch out. I believe it's a good thing and I welcome their visits. Today they stayed put while I took many photos.

Snow Day!

I love snow days, don't you? I spent the entire day in the studio making jewelry! In the evening I folded enough paper to make pages for ten journals. Watching my favorite program on tv while folding makes the time go faster and the task seem less tedious. Cutting ten pieces of canvas and painting each piece for journal covers is next on my list.

I am so excited to begin this e-course with Kelly Rae Roberts and Beth Nicholls on Monday. This is exactly what I need in my life right now. I want to grow my business in a big way this year and this will help me tremendously. I know it!

Reading this crazy vampire trilogy now. I do have to take it in small doses because the content is so bleak. Not a good read if you're depressed! The vampires are super creepy and I've had several bad dreams since picking up the first book over the Christmas holidays. Loving them, anyway! :)
