Good-bye July

Good-bye July and onto August.  UGH.  Another not one in Texas with 108 degrees looming in the forecast.  Oh me, oh my. 

I update my Etsy profile today and thought I would share it instead of writing a big long yapping post, twice.  I am thinking positively about getting a follower though I was stricken with doubt after writing the first post about being so sure of myself.  Well, enough of that, here is the Etsy profile update. 


I have very busy starting new endeavors. I am also working on getting these beauties listed so check back with me.

I found a stack of antique 78 records at an estate sale and bought them thinking they would be worth something on the internet market.  But, alas, they are not.  I then decided to make jewelry, which is usually my fall back thought.  So, that is what I have been doing.  My heart pounds with excitement to make a find then to reuse/upcycle/recycle it into something else.

I also transform cookie tins into jewelry.  My friend, Christina, was doing this interesting project in our on-going Tuesday night jewelry fabrication class.  I copied her idea, so give her credit. 
Also, joined Twitter, created a Facebook page and started a blog.  Below is all that info.  Feel free to join any or all these spots to see what is going on.

Started a new page on Facebook:

... started a blog...

I signed up for the Jingle Bell Bash (Dallas Etsy) on November 19 and
for the Fort Worth Esty show on October 15.  I will let you know when those dates become definite. 

P.S.  I do special orders and will ship anywhere, just convo me for more information.  It tickles me pink when I can do something fun for you.

I am sure I am not the only one...

Really, what am doing now!!!  Starting a blog.  I must be a wee bit crazy.  No comments please from close friends or family who know that being crazy is a trademark of mine. 

Who am I?  Another jewelry fabricator (we use fire and hammers)?  Why, yes, I am.  Here is where I vary.  I believe.  I know that what I do is what I am supposed to do.  Weird for someone who hasn't been sure of much in my life, but has been carried along despite my trepidation.  This is a knowing deep inside.  That is one reason why I am writing today.  I want to you to see what I have to offer.  I have some jewelry that I love and I want people to enjoy it as much as I do.  I want you to know I hand crafted this piece for you. 

I also offer lots of useful and useless information, no political opinions, and a strong belief in God's unwavering guidance and belief in me.  God doesn't make junk.  More will be revealed in my posts, the junk I find, and the jewelry I make. 

Stay tuned.
