Fun in Tulsa!

The kids and I are enjoying our time in Tulsa with my family :)

I'll have lots of great vacation photos to share after we are back home next week.

tomorrow we plan to meet up with my sister and her 5 kiddies to go swim and play at the splash park(yes that will make 11 kids altogether! Then in the afternoon we'll meet up with my cousin for a chat and maybe some coffee...iced, can we say hot and humid!!)

I'm working late at night after the kiddies are in bed to finish up e-mails and convos so I will be ready to reopen next week.

Here's another peek at some thing you'll find in the shop next week...

This fun little rings look amazing paired up with the stacking rings!

Hope you are enjoying your week so far!!

and we're off....

We're off again! I'm packing up the kids bags today and cleaning house to get ready for our trip to Tulsa to visit with my family :)

(books I'm hoping to finish reading on the remainder of my vacation)

I was able to fix my DSLR camera myself (YAAAAY) so you can expect lots of pictures!
Did I mention it was broken? I pulled it out of my camera bag/purse some time back to find several Hershey's kisses stuck to the display screen and buttons. Keeping my temper in check so I didn't have a mommy tantrum, I calmly asked if anyone knew how kisses ended up in my purse, to which my 4 year old proudly announced she put them in there so I could have her kisses with me all the time...melt my heart how could I be upset with that??!!!

It took a very long time sitting with t little needle to get all the chocolate cleaned out of each button but I did it!

On a business note, We will reopen on August 5th so mark your calendars! I have several new designs to debut including this sweet little bird who is currently perched on my neck.

She pairs beautifully with the Psalm 84:3 necklace.

I also will re-open with a BIG giveaway over on Design mom's blog, plus a fun contest on my blog!!

For now it's back to packing diapers and swim suites for our trip, then maybe head out for a little afternoon treat of iced coffee at Starbucks on my way to mail out the last of the repairs and alterations that were sent back to me in July. (oh and your beanies Tracy :)

Have a fabulous weekend!!

a break from vacation...

We are in between trips. Back from Colorado and getting ready for Tulsa. The kids and I had a great time in Colorado, swimming, skipping rocks in the creek, and just relaxing. I'll have photos as soon as I can figure out how to get them from my fancy phone to the computer.

I'm doing an in home show tomorrow so I've been busy this week getting ready for it.
(if you live in Southern California and would like to host a jewelry show send me an e-mail :)

So here are a few sneak peeks of what I make when the shop is closed and I'm on vacation...

Yummy Yummy Gem stones and hand made glass beads!!!

This gal is a bit whimsical with a touch of boldness. I handmade the chain and sprinkled it with a generous helping of sparkling gem stones.
Remember these little gals?
As requested a little bird, the fleur di lis, the cross, a daisy, a heart, and a little star! I have more in the works I'll post soon.
We're home for a week and then the kids and I are off to Tulsa to visit my sister and see her new baby :)
How has your summer been?
