Gems and Hay Fever…

Posted in business-a-go-go, Main, Sharing the Handmade Love at 3:56 am by carrie

It’s 3:39 am. I woke myself up with the delightful “snurgle” of hay fever or a cold or whatever. You know how you are just bored enough to not want to work, but still sleepy and….well, dang it, I wish I could go back to sleep ;)

So… I haven’t been as creative as I would like lately. The store’s sale kept me so busy so I’ve been having dreams of various colored sticky dots (indicating the percentage off of a certain item) and not so much about painting, collaging or creating ;) Btw, I still have a few things on sale at the store, if you missed the “Sale”. You can still find some great bargains on certain items :)

However… I DID manage to make a few jewelry pieces:

This piece is on ebay. It’s a large smokey quartz briolette with a cluster of pink tourmaline on top. All sterling silver chain with the occassional smokey quartz here and there :) And the bidding start at 30% off the retail price.

Also on ebay…Matching earrings:

There are more pieces in my ebay shop and I’m working on filling up the store with new jewelry, too! :)

So, big news… my lifelong friend Kristina is getting married next month so I’ll be helping to plan a wedding shower, which should be fun :) So many ideas, so little time ;) For her wedding dress, she is looking for a pink sun dress or cocktail dress that is simple, yet elegant… if anyone out there has a suggestion, we’d love to hear it ;) I’ve never been good at finding dresses, for some reason? I would always get them made or settle with something I sort of liked.

We’re going on vacation next week so at least I’ll have plenty to share when I come back ;) The store will have odd hours for the next week:
Tuesday, July 17th – 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Wednesday, July 18th – Closed
Thursday, July 19th – Closed
Friday, July 20th – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Saturday, July 21st – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Sunday, July 22nd – Closed (usually closed)
Monday, July 23rd – Closed (usually closed)
Tuesday, July 24th – Closed
Wednesday, July 25th – Back to normal hours (unless I’m completely sunburned!) – 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

So, ebay and website orders may be delayed this week :)

I’m going to attempt getting some sleep… anyone else experiencing the itchy, watery eyes and having a sneeze fest? ;)

Enjoy your weekend, and this not-as-hot-as-last-year July! :)

    Beautiful necklace! I love the pink and white bracelet on eBay. Do you have a necklace in that style as well?
