Welcome To What's Up With Me!!

This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.

This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!

So Welcome

Where Have I been??

I have not blogged in such a long time ... Where have I been?  What have I been doing?  I have been promoting my Supplies Shop on Etsy and it is doing well thanks to your support.  But I have neglected my original shop on etsy ... My Jewelry Shop!  So today I am going to promote my Jewelry.  I am going to tell you how I got started with this endeavor of making jewelry and show you some pictures of the pieces I like the best.  I am going to make you some deals and put some coupon codes in this blog and nowhere else.  You will have to read this blog and leave a comment to use these special codes.
I started making jewelry to help me with the blues that I get during the winter.
my winter: I don't want to leave the house.  I don't even want to leave my robe (I named robee) I get up, put on robee and whatever slippers I find handy (they do not have to match) get my coffee, which Cecil usually hands me already fixed with French Vanilla Creamer, take my daily meds, (you know - high blood pressure and such things) and that is only if I feel like it, sometimes I will sit at the kitchen table long enough for Cecil to read me the Bible Text for the day then off to the den where my beads are overflowing or the couch where Cecil has a small table for me because the den contents have spilled out into the living room.   I have decided on the bead color for the day, or I have decided just to do bracelets or quick sets for the little ones.  Whatever I have decided I am now ready to GET THROUGH ANOTHER WINTER DAY OF NO SUNSHINE ... and it begins.
so let me show you some of what has gotten me through these winters.

The 1st piece of Jewelry I want to show you is a bracelet ... I like making bracelets.  All kinds of bracelets.  This bracelet is multi-strand with small pearls, glass and acrylic beads.  I have some wonderful focal links that look great and worked well for the multi-strand bracelets.  Although I am not a pink type person I do work with pink beads when the mood hits me.  This bracelet turned out very nice.  It is a one of a kind.  I have had many comments on this bracelet.  It has been hearted, tweeted and posted to facebook but this bracelet has not been purchased.  So this multi-strand pink pearl bracelet in included in the special coupon code I will put into this blog.


Next I want to show you a set I made using European Style Charms.  I used 5 Faceted Bluish- Green Crystal European Style Charms and Sparkley faceted glass beads, more faceted crystals and some acrylic beads. Sparkle, Glimmer, shimmer and shine.  This is a matching set.  17 inch Necklace, a Bracelet and Earrings about 1 inch long.  The necklace is on stretchy cord with a toggle.  I make necklaces on stretchy cord because sometimes our fingers are stiff or sore and the necklace may have a toggle or some other type of closure but it would be to difficult to wrestle with the closure.  So stretchy cord seemed like a good decision.  It is the right decision every time I make a new necklace for my mom. (She has arthritis) She does appreciate the stretchy cord on a pretty necklace so she can still wear it when no one is around to help with a clasp.  So this dressy 3 piece set needs to be not just liked, tweeted and hearted but it needs to be worn and loved.  This set will be included in the special coupon code mentioned in this blog.


Now I want to show you 2 pairs of earrings.  Fun earrings ...  Kitty Cat or Puppy Dog Earrings with a Big Pearl Belly
These are cute. Gold metal with black pearl belly.  The earrings are about 1 inch long.  What a fun pair of earring to wear to school or to a summer party.  Who doesn't love kitties and puppies??  I listed these as a choice.  Maybe I needed a better picture to show just how cute these earrings really are.  I will work on that.  Both of these pairs of earrings are included in the special code for a special price.


Only 1 more item will be added to the special coupon code ... But this one listing has 3 nice bracelet groups.  All of these bracelets were grouped together and listed to sell that way.  A you can see group #1 has sold but still available #2, #3, #4 (#4 includes bracelets 4,5,6).
All Bracelets are Stretchy. With such a variety of colors and shapes and beads.   The Bracelets are numbered so it will be easy for you to see which bracelets are in which group.  Each Bracelet is a little different from the next.  I used rhinestone rondelles, cube beads, acrylic beads, silver and gold.  Variety Variety Variety ..  This listing also is included in th special code pricing.


Now for that special Coupon Code you can use to purchase these items.  By the way these items can be added to your purchase and when you add the coupon code all of your items will get the discount.  So if purchased alone or purchased with other items be sure to use the coupon code (MAS30) and you will get 30% discount on all of your items in your cart.  At least 1 item from this blog must be included in your purchase to use MAS30 so you can get 30% discounted from your total purchase.  Remember to leave a comment also.

I will try to keep my blog up.  Now that the winter is over and the Sunshine is once again beaming through the windows of my den I am a little more active and a little more peppy.  I even leave the den now ... maybe even the house.

I do accept offers if you do not like my prices or my shipping fees convo me.  I am a reasonable woman (sometimes and to a certain degree).  Have a very good day with lots of sunshine and good thoughts
