At the speed of Light

Where did the time go...Christmas was here...and then it was gone...Here's Josh and I at his class Holiday Party...

and Daddy and Josh sharing Christmas memories at Universal...


and before we count to three...Christmas was upon us..New Years flew by and through it all we made some wonderful memories.
I also had a busy month with publications.I have four articles out on the shelves,so be sure to look for me in the Winter editions of Belle Armoire Jewelry,Somerset Studio,Jewelry Affaire ,Somerset Studio Gallery...and soon to come
Belle Armoire.
Phew.


Now for this year I have already picked my quote for the year...and I'm finishing up a leather cuff so that I can wear it and so that it can remind me to be true...


"Out of Love,not Fear" -Elie Tahari
When he said this,he was referring to the act of "Creating"(He's a fashion Designer that I love)but I think it can apply to everything...
I will create out of love and not fear..
I will take chances...
I will live my life...
I will make my voice heard...
I will be a good wife...
I will be a good mother..'
Oooh I can go on and on...
See what I mean...heehee...

Now today I am offering to you my friends a new giveaway.I just listed my Jenga pendants(that were published in Jewelry Affaire) in the shop...I ended up making another one and if you want to have it just leave me comment and friend me on Facebook.
I will pick the winner Friday Jan 11th.


As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Congratulations on being featured in so many places. I saw your "Bliss" pendant in Somerset Studio and just loved it! I tried your method on some paper tags with lovely results... Thank you so much for sharing this technique. =)
