Hello, lovelies! I know that 2015 was pretty hard on many of us, and my wish for all of us is that 2016 is a bit gentler. I hope that your year is off to a wonderful start! ❤
I just got the Facebook fundraiser up and running. There are just a few items so far, but I think they’re pretty great… Though maybe I’m a bit biased.
Belinda from Feeling a Little Crochety is donating these adorable bookmarks.
I made these sweet li’l sunstone bauble and wooden feather necklaces the other night.
And I’ve also decided to auction off this beauty, featuring a stunning polymer clay pendant by Deveon at FaceARTifacts. The opening bid is just $20!!
I’ll be adding new donation rewards and auction items created by myself and other artists all month long. If you want to know about everything as soon as it’s added, RSVP for the event. I hope to see you there!

We have not yet met the goal for our med fundraiser, so I am extending the offer through the 13th. Use the code “MEDS” to save 30% on any non-custom jewelry order in my shop. Spend $50 after the discount (not including S&H), and I will refund all US shipping charges.
I also have an auction coming up, from the 13th through the 16th. AJ’s birthday is coming up on Monday, mine is Friday, and the 15th is the one year anniversary of our arrival in Tacoma. We’re hoping that when all is said and done, we might be able to have our basic needs covered for the month and have something left over for some sort of birthday treat, like an inexpensive meal out or a visit to a movie theater. I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed for that.
I expect I’ll have some bargain-hunting holiday shoppers at the event. It’s a great chance to snag a deal or five while helping a hardworking disabled couple stay afloat. I generally list everything with a starting price at or below half of retail, and many pieces end up going for insanely low prices. If you enjoy my work but you’ve never participated in one of my auctions, I highly recommend checking it out. Even if you don’t have funds for this one, you’ll see how it works… And I’ll also be doing other fun stuff, like door prizes, this time around. 😀
Thanks, as always, for being here, being you and being awesome. I really appreciate you taking the time to see what I’m up to!
Much love and many blessings,

I have been working hard the past few weeks, first on pieces for the auction, and more recently getting caught up on custom orders. That means lots of new goodies that I haven’t shared with you yet!
While most of these are custom orders, I also threw in some of the items that I created just for the auction that happened two weeks ago and made it so that we were able to pay it forward with a contribution to the True Colors Fund.
Interested in a piece like any of these, or something completely unique? Please get in touch! We’ll see what I can do for you.
Much love and many blessings, as always!

Aside from Michelle’s custom owl prayer beads, these beauties have been added to the shop! Any of these would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift; the code “MOM” will take 20% off your order through the end of the month. ❤ I’d love to hear what you think of the new additions!

My Facebook reach has been ridiculous, but I’m still in the same predicament where most of my customers and fans follow me on FB — where I have many times more followers than I do anywhere else — and not on any other sites. I’ll have a PO box soon and will then be able to set up a newsletter, since a mailing address is required by anti-spam laws and I’m not comfortable posting my home address publicly. But in the meantime, I’m still having a hard time reaching the folks who are already part of the community I’ve worked hard to build on Facebook — and every time you visit my page and show my posts some love, you help get my posts into more feeds. Thanks so much for your support!
Congrats to the lovely Elizabeth Miller, who just won the rainbow chakra necklace! Good luck to everyone who enters the new contest. ❤

It’s been a while since I had a giveaway for y’all, so I’ve decided to rectify that by giving away TWO collaborative pieces in the second half of April! Here’s a sneak peek at the prizes that I just finished up tonight,,,
The piece on the left features a fancy beadwork leaf pendant by my friend Tracey at The Healers Touch – A Journey In Healing. This necklace combines labradorite, peridot, serpentine, gold freshwater pearls, glass crystals, metal accent beads, and pressed glass Eye of Providence beads.
The necklace on the right features a sweet hand-painted chakra pendant by my pal Windy over at Windy Paints. This piece combines faceted Czech glass beads with clear quartz and pewter accent beads.
I’d love to hear what you think! Which of these are you most excited about entering to win? Keep an eye on my Facebook page and/or my posts here on the blog over the next week for more info on how to enter both contests… And while you’re at it, please pop over to my co-conspirators’ FB pages to show them some love, too!
