Results from my open house

I did rather well on Thursday. I always enjoy seeing how people respond to my jewelry.  It is interesting.
It was fun just sitting around and chatting with a bunch of women. I don't get to do that very often.
Today a piano recital for my grandaughter. I am done with jewelry for awhile. I have 2 more custom orders to do then I am done til after the first of the year.

Thursday Open House

The open house that was postponed from Sunday is tonight. I think the weather will let it happen this time. I have made a few new pieces. The people that will be invited tonight are people that haven't really seen my jewelry except for on the person that is giving the open house. So all new contacts  there. I am excited. I am always excited to show my work. It makes it all worth while. Some pieces I have made and torn down and remade alot of times. I have a picture in my head how it should look. There have been times I will get a piece made late at night.  Then look at it the next morning and 1 bead will not match. I don't know how I do that but I do. Usually that 1 bead is close to the middle so almost the whole thing has to be restrung. But I enjoy doing this. Something about stringing beads makes me unwind. A very good thing.
Hopeing for a good turn out tonight.

Check out Thankful Thursday on my other blog.

So here are a few I worked on for my open house that was moved to Thursday night. If you see one you would like e-mail me.


Thanks for stopping by and looking. Check back soon. I add often.

A letter

Dear Mom.
It is quite strange that I have been thinking about you for a few days now. I then looked at the calendar,  to discover that today is your birthday.
I just wanted you to know that I miss you. It is true that I wasn't around alot the last years. I had to follow my own path which took me away. You were always in the back of my mind helping me make decisions. Helping me take care of my children. I could hear you saying  things to me. That truely helped.
I have tried to keep a few of things we did together as traditions in my family. In my mind there is no better way to honor you than that.
I think my fondest memory is baking at christmas time. I loved it when you baked period. Sitting and chatting watching you knead the bread that we all knew would be baked soon and then served warm, with butter and jam on it. The smell was wonderful. I still get that picture in my head when I bake bread.
I still make your popcorn balls. It is the highlight of the christmas baking. I do it last and then everyone knows were are done for this year.
Whenever I go home during the summer , I will be outside and I can see us all riding, you the greatest yoddler ever would be yoddeling.I could never get that.
But I think the things I remember the most is the laughter.
Thank You for the laughter.
Happy Birthday
Your loving daughter

Hot Coffee and Conversation

Tomorrow morning I will be one of those crazy shoppers out there at 3 in the morning looking to get a great deal. I am going with my 2 daughters. I really don't need to purchase any of these, so on sale items. I just really enjoy the coffee and the conversation after all the craziness is done. We usually stop somewhere sit down and get coffe and a donut or cake. We talk about our purchases and what happend with the crazy people around us. I  mostly just like to sit and listen to my girls chat with each other. It warms my heart.
Tomorrow afternoon new jewelry will be posted after I get in a good nap.
Here is to coffee and conversation.

That Christmas Feeling

I started this blog for selling my jewelry. But as I go through and read other blogs(I have become addicted) I have decided to combine the two and write a little also. I am no great writer and I a have a hard time typing(should of paid more attention in typing class) but I am going to give it a try. We will just have to hang in there and see what happens. Hope you will be patient and hang in also.
So we have all given thanks and that is a good thing.
I want to know what is your favorite holiday movie? 
1. Which one makes you cry and you watch it every year knowing full well you will cry.
2. Which one do you watch that makes you laugh?
3. Which one expresses that feeling of christmas?
4. Which one gives in to the romantic in you?
Okay for me:
1. The Family Stone
2. This was hard. Just Friends, Christmas Vacation or Elf. I watch them all over and over.
3. The Santa Claus(the first one is my favorite)
4. Love Actually
I will probably change my mind in a week or two when I actually get out my christmas movies. I put them away every year that way I don't get burned out on them. The grandkdis would have me watching them year round if I would let them.
Have a wonderful  Thanksgiving

A wonderful day

I have to admit it. I love the cold weather, I love to look outside and see snow falling so hard you can't see across the street. I love to build a fire in my wood stove, so of course I love that smell of wood burning.

It was cold yesterday and I spent the day working on a few new pieces of jewelry for my open house I am having in December. I have also been Twilight inspired. I am not a big fan of red but it keeps drawing me back to make pieces that have red in them. So this is where the new red necklace came from.

$10.00 with free shipping within the USA.

Saturday Snow

It is snowing here today. Just alittle, but enough that my girly man dog doesn't want to go out. I don't know how he does it. The other 2 go out quite frequently. When it rains or snows he goes out twice. Once in the morning and once at night.He hates the water and the cold. Did I mention he is also afraid of the dark. So when we put him out at night we have to turn on the outside light. He is a German Shorthair Pointer and we rescued him from the pound, so maybe that has something to do with it. But he has been living here happy for 4 years.
go figure

Who said you have to throw things away

Taking a moment today to organize my craft room. Who says you have to throw things away. Thank god for table clothes. I can hide all the stuff I told my husband I was throwing out.I am a big packrat. What you don't see is the boxes of material sitting buy my sewing machine. I haven't been sewing much lately. But can't bear to part with the material or the yarn I have. I know I will get time soon!
