I've been so neglectful of this blog! It keeps getting pushed back down on the list and for that I apologize! Spring is upon us, and for me that has meant building up my inventory for spring craft shows. Mother's Day is only 11 days away, and I have been busy creating items for three upcoming shows. I just learned that my home town, Chesterland, Ohio has started up a Farmers Market this year! I'm just so excited about this news! It will be held in The Geauga Market House, which I've always been very fond of. I have fun memories of going in there with my grandparents when I was a little girl. I haven't been in there for probably about 10 years (gosh...could that be possible) and I just think it will be a neat location to hold a farmers market. The market begins the week of May 9 (just in time for Mother's Day) and runs through October. It will be every Friday from 2-7! I will be there May 9...and I'm sure a number of other days as well. This is it's first year, but I have good feelings about this. I think it is something our community has been lacking. So come join me at the first Chesterland Farmers Market on May 9!

Well...I did it! The next step for me as I see it. I am excited to announce the arrival of personalized, hand stamped jewelry to my shop! I am so excited about the endless possibilities in this next phase of my jewelry exploration. I have two different sizes of block letters and 6 different design stamps that can be combined in so many different ways! Hearts, birds, stars, leaves, flowers and of course, starfish to go with my beach glass. I have some great Mother's Day pieces in the works...some are already listed in my etsy shop
So here's to exploration and the courage to try something new! It always leads to good things......so go for it and try something new today :)

I'm so excited to announce that I've just received my very first set of metal letter stamps! I have been thinking about purchasing them for quite some time now, and finally decided to make the investment! I received them in the mail today and have already stamped two pieces! I LOVE IT!! I decided to make this investment now to have some pieces ready for Mother's Day...so I'm just in time to get some practice in and get some pieces made! I know I'm excited about this new step, but I think my best friend may be even more excited. She loves personalized jewelry and can't wait for me to make her a cute little anklet...so I better get to work :) I'd hate to disappoint you Kim!
