Incoming Geekiness

Look what I made! Eeeeek!
It is the sale icon for my shop. I changed it to add the text. I am not very good with these graphic programs and the fact that I taught myself how to use Adobe Illustrator to do this sort of thing as well as the banner for my store and blog, well, I am very happy with myself.
My husband is suitably impressed with my geekiness.

It has begun!

Woohoo! I love sales :D

In honour of Canada's birthday, I have decided to run a Canada Day Sale!

June 30th to July 4th, everything in my shop is now 20% off.

New Jewelry

Here are some new pieces.

This one took forever to get the motivation up to do. I had the idea for it floating around my head for weeks and I just put it off because I knew it would be a lot of work. It took me a day and a half to do. It is a copper cuff strung with loads of pearls, crystals, shell and stone beads. I absolutely love it!


This is a rose quartz that had been lacquered red before I bought the stone. I thought it was weird, my husband thinks this looks like a hot pepper when worn. This will be going up on Etsy soon :D

The light was getting bad when I took this one, but this is garnet rodinite and hematite drops on a niobium chain. I'll photograph it again and add it to Etsy soon.








Wood and jade earrings.
There is also a matching necklace but I was losing light. Up on Etsy soon.
Sterling silver and carnelian earrings.
Also going on Etsy soon :D

Sunday Musings

Well, another weekend come and gone. A brand new work week starts tomorrow. I sincerely hope this week is less stressful than last week was.

Cleaned the house today. Hopefully it will stay clean for a while! It doesn't take long to do in this tiny apartment, but it is irritating to do. I need a housekeeper, lol in my 500 sq. foot apartment!
Must do some crafting this week. I am running out of new stuff to post. I have 2 more rings to post and a pair of earrings left and then that is it. I'd also like to start making more of the designs I already have. I'd like to start doing craft fairs and the only way I can do that is if I have more stock. It's silly, I have 43+ rings around and they are all one of a kind at the moment.

Time for bed. Night all!

Midterm update

Passed my midterm with 72%. I am just happy I passed and even more happy I remembered to take the darn test. It looks as though a few people in the course didn't remember to do the midterm.

I wonder if they left the course?


Wondering if I should do a Canada Day sale. Hmmm...




*These little guys have been getting some attention lately, so I thought I'd show them some love too.

Updates - My busy life

I gotta say, I am more the laid back, go with the flow, relax, BC mindset kind of girl. I am not into the rush, rush, rush, busy life I've been living these past few days. Things have been crazy busy around here, but I finally have a moment to update my poor neglected blogs!
Work

Work is a constant source of craziness, frustration, and accomplishment. It is going well most days. I like the challenges presented to me - and I like even more that I am able to solve them satisfactorily to my boss' liking. This is a good job for me. One girl, who comes in once in a while, says that it is sad that her best strength is data entry. I said that it is good to know your own strengths. I thought about that for a while and I decided that my biggest strength is solving problems and creating new procedures. I am good at cleaning up other peoples messes. And I like doing that. It is when I am bored and there is no challenge left to a job that I feel it is time to move on.

Life

Well, this past week has been taken up with wedding stuff. I am not in the bridal party, I am just a good friend of the bride. I made her jewelry as well as the jewelry for the bridesmaids (so cute, I thought!). I am already married and I am so glad I got married the way that I did (I'll tell you about it another day) after these past few days. There was so much that needed to be done and so little time to do it all in! Get the dress, get manicures (which I never got, grr) and pedicures, set up the hall, go for the rehearsal dinner - and that was just the day before the wedding! I love my friend dearly, and I sincerely hope they have a wonderful life together - I just know why brides freak out before the wedding now! So stressful!

Well, the bride was beautiful walking down the aisle; the groom choked up a bit at the alter (as expected) and all in all, it was a lovely day once the wedding was under way.

Oh, another thing going on! I am taking an online course all about payroll legislation (yay). I have gotten so far behind with the wedding and work and life, that the midterm is here and completely taken me by surprise! Thankfully, I love to learn (even if the subject matter is drier than dust) so I think I will be ok. I just have to remember to take the test before the end of the week!!!

Frog Princess Designs

Sadly, I have been neglecting my store a wee bit. I have a few new things to post and some reorganizing to do. I am also wanting to do the YART sale http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/ya-gotta-yart-4049/) - I love sales, lol! I will post with the link to the YART section when I have it all set up.

I will be here more often. Life should start to calm down now. I look forward to getting back to my laid back, relax, BC kind of life.

Yay, Another Monday

Good morning everyone. I am still around I've just not been posting for some reason. I am trying to keep up though!

Got another custom order from Lisa that I appreciate so much! Thanks Lisa! Happy Birthday!!!

I was panicking this weekend. I am taking an online course through the CPA right now. (I am taking the Payroll Legislation course right.) I thought my mid term was this week and I was panicking because I hadn't completed all the chapters that needed to be done for the test! LOL. Well, it isn't until next week and I had better get my butt in gear and start studying!

Happy Monday everyone!! (if that isn't an oxymoron, I don't know what is, lol)
