Hi dear ones!  It's been a little while, hasn't it?  I wanted the last post to be seen by as many people as possible (I feel the message is important) so I just sort of dropped off with the new posts for a bit. 

I have been super busy creating.  This new year of ours has graced me with a great deal of creativity.  The ideas are flying fast and furious...yippee!  My needles and hooks and I are trying to keep up with my ideas.  It's been a bit of a challenge with Ron away for two weeks (he returned this past Tuesday night), and now another two week trip for him coming up at the end of this month.  We miss him terribly and I worry like a fiend, but he does get to travel to the most amazing places. 

I will continue to work on my new ideas.  I have several pieces just waiting for the right photo lighting.  I also have a 12 piece series that I am very excited about.  For the past two weeks, I've been staying up late sketching each of the 12 designs.  They have become a very distracting obsession.

The three items above are my latest designs.  I listed them in my shop these past three days.  I'm quite in love with each one.  I can't seem to get enough of the Wild West Series.  The bustle scarves, scarflettes and now the new collar are designs I love to create.  Also, there is a brand new design coming to the Wild West Series next week.  I'm absolutely ecstatic about it.  I've been working a long time on it and can't wait to show you.

The cloud brooch is also a favorite of mine.  So fluffy and fun!  It's a great and inexpensive way to add lots of style to your wardrobe.  I have more colors for the cloud brooches coming your way soon.  One next week, as a matter of fact.

And finally, I wanted to mention the fact that tomorrow is my
4 year Etsy anniversary
I can't tell you how much I've learned over these past four years. 
It's been the most amazing learning experience. 

To celebrate my anniversary,
I will be having a Fringe Giveaway this week, here on the blog. 
So stay tuned, darling dears!

I hope you had a wonderful week.  May your weekend be filled with little (or big) bursts of happiness and moments to cherish.

Thank you so much for dropping by...xo

Congrats on your 4 years on Etsy. I'm still fairly new and still learning the ropes. Would love to see a do's and don't from a pro like you!

Abby

P.S. Your work is amazing!

Thank you so much for visiting, Abby, and thank you for your lovely comment and generous compliment.

I like your idea about Etsy Do's and Don't for a future blog post. I will definitely give it some thought.

First, I want to say that you are such a talent.
Second, I want that brooch. (I will shop Etsy.)
Third, Ron really ought to take you away with him to one of those amazing places. ;)

Hi Jayne! I hope your having a lovely weekend so far. Thank you so much for your kind compliments. You are such a peach :)

Yes, I would like to go along with Ron on many of his trips. It's hard to get away during the school year though. We hope to join him on one of his trips in the near future.

Thank you for visiting me...xo

I'm so happy to know you are enjoying your Cumulus Brooch. That color is no longer available, so you bought the last one :)

Oh, the pink Cloud Nine brooch is so sweet...it reminds me of a sunrise cloud...just plain pretty!
The idea of having a "cloud" collection is starting to intrigue me...my Cumulus Brooch might just need a friend (or two)!

Happy Anniversary!!!
xo J~

Dennice {Fringe} said...

Oh my GOSH, J! You'll never believe this. I almost named the pink cloud brooch Sunrise Cloud because it reminded me so much of the pink color of clouds during early sunrise. We really do think alike. So awesome :)

Thank you for being such a lovely friend and always leaving such charming comments. You're a peach!
