Hello there......

Hey there... I have a bad blogger...I admit it.  Many things have gone on since I last posted here.  Illnesses, operations, and getting some new creations up has been a juggling act.  Family is always first for me and that doesn't change- but when you get sick, boy does everything else go out of whack!

While in my funk, I posted some new items in my FaceBook page and in my Etsy shop

Coupons are my new best friends

Hello to all!  I have been busy with working, family time, business time, etc that I have not been too constant w/ my blog.... :(

I have discovered that using coupons have been a great asset for my family.  I go to this wonderful site and print out many needed coupons that I use at my local supermarket. is a great site that I go too.  I wanted to share the link w/ you so that way you can all start saving too.  Even if your local supermarket does not double its coupons, you will still the savings if you sit down and calculate you costs.  I sit down and browse through the local supermarket ad w/ the coupons I have on hand.  Many times I have been able to score FREE items and cut my shopping bill by 75% to 90%! 

Just click on this link, and start saving!!!

Long time no speak

Hello Everyone!

I have been so busy with family life, work, my shop that I have not blogged in a while.  I am slowly but surely adding many items that I have on my Face Book page to my Etsy shop.  Tax season is around the corner that I need to organize all my receipts and my inventory.  This is the first year doing my taxes by adding my business- I usually do it by myself, but this time I will look for some guidance. Argh!

Winter is upon us and I have many wonder items now available in my Crochet Item section of my Etsy shop that are not only stylish, but will keep you warm.  Plus I am having a sale in one of my albums in my Facebook page.  Take advantage of these wonderful prices.  For Black Friday, I will be having a great sale going on as well. 

If you are a Tweeter, you can follow me now on Twitter- just click on this link or the twitter box above on your right hand side....

It was great blogging to you all.  Have a great evening and talk to you soon!

Design a Day- Day 7 and 8

Shades of Spring- this multi-color bracelet will go with any outfit. Its made with purple, green and yellow crystal beads, black/clear crackle beads and 3 ivory glass pearls. It measures about 8.25 inches round memory wire (for bracelets).
Kata created this beautiful bracelet because she loves color.  She picked up all my bead boxes, placed them in front of her and started creating.  She would come over to me and show me all the bracelets she created and they are very beautiful.  This bracelet is very comfortable on the wrist as well. 
Please click on SHADES OF SPRING to purchase this beautiful creation in my Etsy shop:

Black Out bracelet- made with black crystal beads that measure from 4mm, 6mm and 8mm. Has one large bead that is wrapped with black stain rope and silver findings.
It measures about 8.25 inches round memory wire (for bracelets).

As you know, I LOVE BLACK.  When I saw these wonderful beads I just had to have them.  They look so lovely in person and you can easily use this bracelet as a causal wear or for an evening event.  It's very comfortable on your wrist and no fear of it falling off your wrist.  I love creating this and I hope you do too.
I have 3 of these bracelets available.  Please click on this link BLACK OUT bracelet to purchase on my Etsy shop.
Thanks! ;)

Custom Order- NY Mets Set- and not for a GUY!!!

I had fun creating this wonderful set for a great repeat customer.  She apparently loves the METS and wants to represent with this beautiful set.

These are official Major League Baseball pendants. Actual pendant measures 2.5 cm across and 2.5 cm tall.
Earrings: Length of earrings w/ hook are about 3 inches long.
Necklace: pendant is hanging off a 16 inches round gunsmoke color chain with a 3 inch extender. Actual pendant measures 2.5 cm across and 2.5 cm tall.Chain also one royal blue bicone and one orange crystal bead hanging on the sides of pendant.

The colors of the glass crystals I used really bring out the details of the pendants.  I shipped them out today and I know that Stefanie will be pleasantly surprised when she sees it in person.  My hubby loved it too.

Woo Hoo!  Let's go Mets!!!
