Happy Etsyversary



Today marks my 6 year anniversary selling jewelry on Etsy. I didn't want the day to go by without mentioning it. It's been a fast 6 years! I've spent the morning thinking about all the folks that I've met along the way. Those that helped me get started. Answered my never ending stream of questions. Those that I laughed with. Cried with. Got in trouble with. Those that moved on. And those that are still around. Thank you one and all. You know who you are.

We Got Snow




For a moment, I thought it was going to be a REAL snow. It came down hard and fast, big flakes blowing in the cold north wind. But when all was said and done, this is what we had. It's better than nothing.





Althea loves snow as much as me. So I grabbed the camera, the cat and headed outside. We lasted all of 15 minutes before she was ready to go back inside. She headed for cover.
Here's hoping the next snowfall tops this one.

My New Favorite Photo Prop



When my chippy bead board lost most of it's chips, I switched my photo backgrounds in my Etsy shop. I do like the handmade paper backgrounds, but sometimes they're just a little too 'clean' for me. I started gathering up photo props to liven up the show. My new favorite prop is a pair of deer antlers that I've had for a long time. I'm very pleased with the results.

Winter Decorations















The holidays are over, but that doesn't mean that I take down all of our decorations. I leave some of them up, both indoors and out, to jazz up the winter landscape. I love the smell of fresh greens, so I keep fresh cut pine and spruce boughs tucked into corners around the house.


I love the winter months. It's when I get to slow down. The garden is harvested and there is zero yard work to be done. I get to concentrate on my Etsy shops and I have more time to blog and to read blogs. There's always something in the oven or on the stove top. And that's something to celebrate. Might as well have some decorations to go along with the joy.

Love Is In The Air




And it's in my Etsy jewelry shop in this section. I will be adding new heart pieces, just in time for Valentine's Day, sprinkled throughout the coming weeks. Most of the items are OOAK (one of a kind), so if you see something you like, well, you know what to do.


I get to take photos today with my new camera. WooHoo! Have a good one.

Happy New Year!




It's been a while dear ole blog, but I've come to wish you a happy new year! We've had a wonderful holiday season and I'm sad to see it winding down. Santa brought me a new camera, so we should be seeing more of each other. We only had one camera, which went to town with John most days. When I blog, it's a spur of the moment thing. Grab the camera, shoot something and blog about it. But since there hasn't been a camera, there hasn't been many blog posts. Now, as soon as I figure out this DSLR, I'll be good to go!


Here's to a fabulous year.
