Rainbows in the depths of winter

December is a hard month for a lot of us. Its dark and cold (especially if you live where I do) and often full of holiday stress. Sometimes a little light and color can cheer one up or make the day seem lighter, in that spirit here is a rainbow for you to enjoy.

Blogging and the busy woman

Okay, so I admit it. Blogging is the bane of my existence. It's not that I don't have a lot to say. I just don't always know if it makes sense to blog it. There is something rather intimidating about having the contents of ones mind on ones musings being available to the public at large. So what do you blog about to keep things fresh and interesting? I think I need to brainstorm on that a little more.

I have been using my blog primarily as a platform for my business. I love making jewellery. It relaxes me. I do not however care for the amount of time it takes to market my business. I have learned that marketing is not for me. At least marketing my own products.

So while I stew about how to blog and what I should blog about I have some stunning new gems and beads that are positively screaming at me to get back to my job of creating.
I'll be back.......later.

Fantastic Contest with WillowWalkerDesigns

I have a wealth of very talents artisan friends. They are all wonderful to spend time with during the good times and the bad times. I am truly blessed.

I hope you enjoy perusing her blog and her shop. Its full of gorgeous pieces.

November is fast approaching.

As many of you know I'm a November baby. Growing up I really didn't care for my birthstone but now as I have matured in my tastes I find the richness of topaz is very appealing to me. So for everyone who has a precious November baby in their lives now is the time to start shopping for their birthday gifts. I was recently included in this great November birthday inspired collection and I thought I would share it with you for some great ideas for gifts.
