After many Late late late nights and lots of coffee and TONS of Earl Grey tea Almost all mother's day orders are shipping out. Thanks Tracy for the encouraging e-mails at 2am to keep on truckin' :)

The last of the Mother's day orders will head on out Monday morning!

But today I'm off to pick up my good Friend Tracy of Creme De La Gems so we can head on down to Carlsbad for Friday night and we're not running off to the beach for a girls weekend...we're flying on down to meet the Queen Bees at the QUEEN BEE MARKET!

Are you coming too?!!! You really should, It's going to be Fabulous! Tons of wonderful creative vendors, and so much pretty eye candy and hand made shopping bliss. Not to mention all my pretty jewelry ;)

You can bee sure I'll have photos to post of the event....after one last late night on Sunday to get the last of the Mother's Day goodies on their ways to some very lucky mommies.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Lookie what I made!

After the Mother's day orders all ship I will be taking a little creative time out to make some new beauties for the shop.

I made this pretty over the weekend and I just LOVE it! The stone is a gorgeous blue flash Labradorite that I set in sterling and created a pretty and feminine border with a flower and vine.

I can't wait to make more rings!

Aren't they cute!

I love these little cutties.

They are little silver pebbles set with gem stones and Cubic zirconia. They are simple and organic looking with a bit a sparkle.
I hand form each one and set it with a little gem. They will be a great way to add on birthstones to a design, or just to wear all alone. I have my 6 kiddies birthstones on my neck.

As soon as the rest of stones come in I'll have them in my shop.

This group will be with me at the Queen Bee Market with me on May 1st.
If you are anywhere near Carlsbad Ca (or even if you are not) you should come out!

I've been a busy busy bee at my work bench getting all the Mother's day orders created.

I'm super excited to announce I have an assistant! She is one of my closest girl friends, we've know each other since we were 13. She started work today helping me keep up with my e-mails so I can keep creating. I'm so lucky and blessed to have her help. Stop back by here on Friday to meet her!!! She doesn't know yet but I'll be snapping a photo to post here...shhhh don't tell her. ;)

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Wednesday!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who shopped with us for Mother's day. Yesterday was the busiest day we have had since we opened.
We've had so many sweet compliments over the last few days. I feel so blessed to be able to share what I love so much with others. You all bring me so much joy :O)

Now to get all these pretties out to everyone in time I will be living at my work bench for the next 15 days, so post will be short and few.

Just a sneak peek at something that will be appearing in my shop soon.

This little guy is #1 in a series... I form each one by hand and they can be stamped with any message.
They will make great graduation gifts for a young lady setting out in to the world!

Final Shopping day...

Today is the last day to get Mother's day orders in.

Every Year I get hubbies in pleading because they waited too long to order, and I'm such a push over I always say yes, but this year I Promised my hubby No Late Orders so I have to keep my word.
If you've been dropping hints to your hubby be sure he knows today is it! :O)

For those that do procrastinate I do have Gift certificates.

I finally uploaded my photos from Disneyland and Easter last night.

Here are a few of my favorites

Gabriel insisted on wearing is tie...I think he wanted to charm the ladies ;)

What can I say this boy melts my heart!

My future rock star

My little sister. I love her expression, I just couldn't resist. Meggie is just behind her and that's my mom in the back :O)

Happy Friday!

One More Day!!!!!!

Well being the klutzy woman I can sometimes be... I fractured my pinkie finger this week.

I'm still not sure exactly how I did it but i did. Nothing major, a little crack that is healing quickly, but as ever set me back a few days with orders and messages. I couldn't grip my hammer for two days, but now i can with my pinkie held out like I am enjoying afternoon tea in a British garden. Yes it looks funny.

Because I haven't been able to finish getting to convos and setting up reserved listing I have extended the Mother's day order deadline to Friday April 16th.

Be sure to get those orders or requests in by tomorrow!!

Nesting momma

I LOVE this little cuttie! I hand drew a little momma bird on a branch. She is gaurding her nest filled with gem stone eggs.

The chain is all made by my little hands and will be accented with matching gem stone dangles.

She will be soaring in to my shop soon!

New (sort of) Goodies!

I've been working on getting ready for the Queen Bee Market in Carlsbad on May 1st.

I spent part of Saturday re tagging jewelry and polishing goodies that have been tucked away for almost a year now, and I realized how many designs I have made that never ended up getting listed in my etsy shop.

So today these old pretties will become new listings in my shop, Just in time for Mother's Day shoppers. I have TONS more but I didn't want to overload blogger with too photos

Don't forget April 15th is the last day to shop, and I promised my hubby that no matter how hard anyone begs I won't take any late orders (apparently I'm kinda grumpy when I don't sleep because I took too many late orders ;)

I have this bracelet in several different colors all made with natural gem stones.

Love this little cutie!

A different version on my "Sun Sea Sand and Serenity" necklace

"A mother holds her child's hand for only a moment but holds her heart forever"

I have a thing for Star fish, can you tell? I spent a forever looking for the perfect tiny star fish to create this one. It's dainty and so cute!

infinte love...simple ~ romantic

I dicontinued my crescet "love you to the moon and back beacuse everyone seemed to have teh same one on etsy, so I created this one to offer something different from the same sweet story.

Love ROCKS! This one was born of an experiment. I don't like to waist any silver and try to use recycled silver when ever I can. I made this little guy by recycling my silver scraps. I love the simple organic look of it.

Mother's day ordering....

If you have dropped hints to your hubby, your kids, or anyone who will listen ;) Be sure to let them know that April 15th will be the last day to order and receive your jewelry for Mother's day giving.

I will be working around the clock to make sure that many a lucky mommy out there has something pretty to wear this Mother's day.

Thank you so much to everyone who has shopped with us already!

Something new...

I love the simple beauty of this piece. I've had the pendant sitting on my work bench for ages trying to figure out what to stamp on it.

It was raining the other day, and after a couple of long weeks the sound and smell of the rain in our garden brought me such a sense of peace, it was just perfect!

You can find my new Silver petals pendant in My shop

What brings you peace?

Happy Wednesday!
