New and Improved

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I stayed up pretty late last night tweaking my blog, trying to get it to look more cohesive.  Up top is my logo I designed for a craft sale last Spring to mimic my Treasure Bird earrings and necklace shapes.  I decided to add that distressed edge to the sides of the page as well.  Now, if I could just figure out how to fix my profile page- yuck!  Does anyone know how to do that???  That orange and blue is killin' me!

P.S.- The necklace above is one of the new pieces I worked on over the weekend.  I will be listing a few things in my Etsy shop this week so stay tuned!

Left Buster outside for 10 minutes by himself and look what happened!  We had a lot of rain this weekend, so he found himself a mud puddle and went to town.  I have already bathed him twice and it seems it's going to take a couple more to get him back to this color

Etsy Treasury

I love this sweet, vintage inspired treasury that ShaneLilyRain put together today.  So cute, and it reminds me that Easter is just around the corner!  Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Check out this video that's been circulating 'round the craft scene. Holy crap. That is funny. It's actually what I sing when I'm in the studio making jewelry, "You're sure looking crafty, you could make a raft outta pencils and foam..."

Etsy Front Page

Woo whoo!  Thanks to shavingkitsupplies for putting together this wonderful treasury that made the front page today!  I love all of the earthy colors in this one- so pretty.

UPDATE:  I am now sold out of the Treasure Bird rings that were featured (big thanks to everyone who bought one!).  I will plan on having more available in a few weeks and still have a few Treasure Bird earrings and necklaces for sale in my Etsy shop...

And the Lucky Winner Is...

Number 5 aka Jennifer according to the Random Brian Generator.  Email me your addy and I will get the goods shipped out next week.  A big thank you goes out to everyone that entered the giveaway and for all of the birthday wishes!  Birthday was great BTW.  I got a very special phone call that day with some exciting news.  Can't wait to share, but I might have to wait a few more weeks.  No, not preggers, but I will say that it has to do with my artwork and a super-awesome-dream-come-true-project so stay tuned...

Perfect Day for a Bike Ride

Happy Birthday to Me and a Giveaway for You!

So today I celebrate turning 29, barely holding on to my 20's with everything I've got!  I have a feeling this year is going to be great though!  Anyway, now that I'm making jewelry and have an endless supply of stuff it is time to get rid of a few things I love but just don't have room for anymore.  I have about 6 necklaces, 7 pairs of earrings, and 3 bracelets so far.  Feel free to wear these things as is or tear them apart to make new stuff (this stash would be perfect for jewelry makers b/c there are a lot of great beads in here).  I don't care, I just want it to go to a happy home!  Just leave a comment in this post by Wednesday at noon EST to enter to win.  Ok, off to take a quick nap before my big night out!

Snow in Georgia?!

And I'm not talking about the little flurries that don't even stick but we still get so excited about it here that we shut the whole state down...  I'm talking about the real deal!  It was awesome.  The dogs loved it too (can you spot the snow bunny in the last picture?!).  Brian and I went for a walk around the town and it was like a little Winter Wonderland- so cool.
