I've done it...

Well, I have taken the big step, which was very nerve wracking to do, but I have done Etsy shop is now open for business. I'm still trying to figure out how to add the slide show to my blog but for now it's just the Etsy Shop link. I'm flying by the seat of my pants and hope all works out and is done right.  Comments back would be most welcome. I have a limited number of items in my store but will continue to add as the days go on. Who knew this would be such a huge learning curve.

I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful blog friends, and this week I have enjoyed so many of my blog friends posts - Lori shared her story of when she first knew true love and I felt special to be  included in the reveal of her excellent story. Keep writing Lori, you do it well. Sarah shared her way of coping and prioritizing - I always take away so much good advice from her and count myself lucky to be her blog friend. Ginger my BSBP is sharing her experiences in Okinawa, I call them my mini blog-cations. I am so excited that Ginger is my partner, I think we are kindred spirits and share a lot in common. My list could go on and on,  but suffice it to say that I appreciate all my very talented blog friends.

My baby moved out today and I'm not sure I'm prepared for that even though she is 24 and ready to be on her own..the empty nest syndrome has hit me hard but at least I have my fur babies.....

Fur Baby #1 - Rockstar

Fur Baby #2 - MoJo
oh, and  my beading.....I have a couple of pieces I am dying to show, but must wait for reveal days so I thought I would share two bracelets I just finished instead. "Dottie" evokes happiness, and  "A whole lot of Bling" evokes just that. Both pieces succeeded in lifting my spirits and were fun to make.


  1. Yay!!! I knew you could do it. I did it, too -- although I just listed one item and haven't done a thing to promote it because I'm still scared. But we'll figure this Etsy thing out together.

    Thanks for the mention! I'm so glad you found the post helpful. Also, your puppies are adorable. I'm sure they'll step up and give you extra attention while you adjust to such a big change. That's what dogs do. :)

  2. Congratulations on taking that step and starting your Etsy shop! I went over and checked it out...your jewelry is beautiful!

  3. Your shop looks great and your pictures are gorgeous. I hope you sell tons!!! I can't imagine what it's like for your baby to leave the nest...mine is only 11 so I have a few more years to go. But your pups are just adorable!!!

  4. I absolutely LOVE the second bracelet - it is amazing. I would love to try that :)
