Well... More like... I'm so happy it's time to kick back and relax! It's been a long week- but I've made it through!

I'm waiting patiently for dinner to be made- roomie is cookin up some teriyaki and chicken concoction that will most likely prove to be divine.... I just got home a little while ago. I'm stahhhhving!


So I actually noticed the date today. 8/21/09.
I can't believe it's already almost the end of August.
Where did the time go?! It seems like yesterday I was waiting for the warm(er) weather to get here so I could kick off my shoes and run around barefoot- which I do all year anyways- and lounge at the beach.

Well.... I've successfully done the kicking off the shoes part. Haven't made it to the beach. Yet.

It's making me think... Tiki Torches. Sand. Mai Tai's. Sarongs.
Siesta! Let's have a party!


Bright and vibrant! Colors speak so much as to what kind of a mood you're in, and I while I love muted colors... Sometimes bright and bold is what you need. You have to admit that if you catch a glimpse of yourself wearing something so intense it puts a smile on your face. Admit it. There you go!


As a celebration, I had to create these earrings. I originally didn't plan to put them together like this- I was going to have complimentary muted colors that were similar to each. Until I felt I needed the bright factor. Enter Indian Pink. Thank you for the eye popping color!

I'm also totally psyched because today I was featured on a blog! A special post, all about me! Sorry to be so excited here for a second, but WOW! It's awesome! I've been really active on Facebook lately- trying to promote my shop. And then I got the magic "100" needed for a URL.

And I took a look at all the people that were becoming fans of my jewelry... And it made me realize, hey. Those are the people supporting me... So why not return the favor?
I had the idea and began implementing it... A quick status update, and there you go! Items! Referrals! Fans! Marketing! Links to shops, new people, new friends... Why not!?
So I'm madly posting like no other has done before....
Well, I think so at least!
My fans are just as important as I am, so why not share the success!?
So thank you Comfuzzled for featuring me on your blog!!

And for those of you that want to keep up to date on the "Sales Fairy" visits... Find her on facebook and fan her too for special updates!!! Her page is here!

So Afternoon Siesta is on!!!

Who's bringing the pitcher of Margaritas?

Facebook Fans/Cross Promotion

So I decided to post an Etsy Thread.

First time for everything, I hope it doesn't look TOO bad!

I've been intrigued by how easy it is to advertise on Facebook, and of course there's no shortage of awesome artists on Etsy.

So why not combine both?


Fan Pages and Etsy Artists!
There's no reason you can't have your cake and eat it too!!!

The idea is to get as many shops/fans as possible. I don't know how realistic this is, all things considered... Because I do realize that people have different tastes with items and shops. But that's ok- just as long as we help each other out!

So take a look, and fan away!

3 Weeks!

Without Internet!

I can't believe I made it!

I apologize for being MIA, but between the nightmare moving was, and getting everything all over here to the new apartment... Let's just say I'm very glad it's all done and over with. Now it's just a matter of getting unpacked, settled and organized.

So tonight is the first Friday I'm in the new place.
I have to say, I'm quite impressed with myself. I've managed to get most of my room set up the way I want- I just need to purchase bed/nightstand/dresser in the next month. And all my things are put away and stored... In the closets! I love the storage I now have! It's awesome!

I'm thinking I may actually remove a door from one of the closets, that way I can build a little workstation on to the wall and use it as a craft area. However, I don't know if I want all the closet contents to be "seen"- but the good news is that there's enough of a gap between the door and the wall where it opens I could conceivably tuck a small table and keep a chair off to the side.

Heck. What's wrong with the bed!? LOL

I have to say... I love my bathroom the most. I'm hardly finished decorating with it- but oh... So pretty! I ended up purchasing a sheer purple shower curtain with sparkles all over it, and I wasn't so sure I'd like it. I'm not a purple person, but I was going for "Spa" feel. I'm impressed. It's delicate, and I decorated with cream colored accents. Bamboo and candles on the counter, and we're starting to get a look going here! Next up is a space saver above the commode, and a towel cabinet for next to the bath in Espresso wood. So there's the color scheme- lavender, cream, greens, rich wood.

I could get used to decorating! Maybe it'll become a new hobby... I have so many....

I'm excited about my jewelry though. I think I'm going to take more pictures this weekend, just to change up how I have some of them listed and shown. More textures, better light, different backgrounds and backdrops. We'll see how much time I have- since tomorrow night is an Impromptu Sushi Night and Birthday Celebration!

Mmmm... Sushi... I haven't made it for over a month... *drooling*
