Happy Thanksgiving!

We, as in me, Tim and Maddy, will be heading to Oklahoma for the Thanksgiving holiday to see Papa Mel and Patty. When I return I can NOT wait to tell you about my weekend at the craft fair in Cape Girardeau Missouri!!!!! I'll give you a hint......I saw a lot of green.....if ya know what I mean!????!

I have put my shop on vacation while we are away. Business is booming, so it was a tough decision to make, but I can not spend quality time with my family always thinking of going to check my shop or convo's! So, I apologize for any inconvenience. It will reopen on Monday December 1st!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Take care, be safe, and above all.........be "Thankful" for all the great things in your life!

I am a wife, mom, and a registered nurse to the community. I am also a self taught jewelry artist that was inspired to take up jewelry design after my father taught me the 'basics' of bead stringing in 1999. I was HOOKED! After my daughter was born in 2005, I found that jewelry design became a necessity to get us through our first Christmas holiday season by making jewelry as gifts for family and friends! One of those friends worked at our local county health department, and soon the jewelry orders started to fly in. I was then commissioned by the WIC department at the same health department to create a piece of jewelry for their breastfeeding clinic......and a business was born! I found Etsy through a postcard my mother picked up at an art show. I opened my Etsy account in March of 2008, but did not list my first item until September 2, 2008! Cold feet I guess! I also started my blog in March of 2008. This blog is committed to showcasing my work, featuring other artists, promoting Etsy, offering parenting information, and ALL about trying to have fun in the process!

Remembrance Day. Veteran's Day.

To my US, Canadian, New Zealand, British and other friends,

"They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

Laurence Binyon (1869–1943).

Lest we forget
