Don't miss this victorian looking watch!

Today is a good day for this beautiful Victorian looking watch, because it has received many compliments today. If your not looking for the usual red flowers or candy for Valentine's day, this piece is a one of kind gift. Even though I love this piece, it is not meant to be produced in multiples. Additional information on this piece which is sure to become a favorite watch is available at

I also have finished a darling pink bangle that I have to get listed soon, and am working on so many other ideas. I just wish there was more time to bead, and less demands on my time from outside sources. But I bet this is a wish that the majority of people have.

As you probably know, I am a Biggest Loser junkie, and last night's episode really threw me. I never expected the orange team to leave, but Dan looked great, and I hope he wins the $100,000. Joelle and Carla are going to drive me nuts, and they should have been gone long ago in my humble opinion. What are your thoughts on the show?

I will talk to you soon.

Free Advertising on blog

It's time to change things up again. Would you like to post your etsy mini here on my blog? Just leave a comment with the code for a 2x4 thumbnail, and I will put as many as possible up. It's just kinda my way of giving back to all the wonderful people who have helped me on this journey.

Things are becoming more hectic at work, and it has just begun. Are you ready for the dreaded tax season? There are not a huge amount of changes this year, but if you want to review them and see if any apply to you, this is the website for the IRS:,,id=202106,00.html?portlet=7

I'm not an expert, but if you have questions, let me know and I will do my best to answer them. I only specialize in personal taxes, not business.

Between my day job (legal assistant), the jewelry business and my own tax clients, life is bound to get hectic soon, but then I get my brand new counter tops in the kitchen. I just hope I can split myself in multiples and make it through.

On the jewelry side, I'm working on a bangle, and hopefully going to learn bead crochet. I've strung the beads, but now have to actually crochet them. Since I've been a crocheter for 30 years, hopefully it will come naturally. Maybe this weekend. I'm thinking I should take work in progress pictures, that way I can let you know what not to do :).

I forgot to tell you, that I have extended the free shipping through January 31. Take advantage now!

Until next time....

Perfect gifts for Valentine's Day

I listed the new additions to my etsy shop today, as promised yesterday. I bet you thought that I wouldn't get to it and the blog wouldn't be updated for while. I also took new pictures of Maddie today, so I had to add one at the end.

Are you looking for a great, unique gift for your sweetheart or something to wear with your outfit for that special night? I just listed a one of kind Valentine's Day bracelet. You don't want to miss this one, as Valentine's day is approaching fast.

In case your not into red, check out the hugs and kisses which would be perfect for your little black dress.

On the left side under my newest additions is my Pocahontas bracelet. It turned out so beautiful and the bronzes and topaz just blends so well. It was fun to make and watch the colors play on each other. But don't forget to wear your sunglasses with this one, because it is sparkly.

On a personal note, I accomplished today what I set out to do. Maddie doesn't need more pictures taken of her, but she is so cute, so I just had too. In case you have been following my dilemas with her, the puppy biting is getting better, and she is behaving periodically. When we leave her in the living room, she starts crying at the gate blocking off the rest of house. It's just too cute.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I will give a minimum of Maddie update by Tuesday.

I'm back

Life is starting to calm down! The holidays are over, my job is going to go into overdrive with tax season, but best of all there is hope that my new puppy is finally calming down a little. She is so much fun, but has so much energy! Since she is an English Springer Spaniel and now a whopping 14 weeks, she is maybe (and I say this with much hope) recognizing that my fingers are not a toy. Maddie still is nipping a lot, but with lots of exercise and love, she may turn out okay after all. I say this with tongue in cheek, because I know that she will be a great dog, but some days are touch and go. Here are a few newer pictures of her.

I will be adding new pieces to my shop tomorrow. Just in case you forgot where to find me (my fault) it's The green watch is really a great piece, and gets lots of compliments. It definitely is a one of a kind piece!

I hope your weekend is going well and if your in the cold Arctic that has captured the midwest, stay warm.
Just a note: I'm on facebook too. If you want to know more about me, just friend me.
