Get Better Bret!

I was sad to hear yesterday of Bret Michaels in critical condition with a brain hemorrhage. He has always been one of my favorite singers, as I was a huge Poison and 80s glam rock fan back in the day. Ive met him a few times and he was always down to earth and didn't hesitate to spend some time with his fans to sign autographs or take photos. I have also enjoyed watching him on Celebrity Apprentice! It really showcases how creative and hard working he is.....thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery Bret!

New! Blue Kyanite Bullet earrings!


Earrings made from a bullet casing from a that I shot myself! Shooting can be fun, a real stress reliever. And with everything we are going through, it feels like therapy!
I was inspired to make these earrings when I saw the perfect fit of the cool and raw blue Kyanite aqainst the rich brass patina of the bullet casing. I have a great variety of bullet casings and hope to have more designs online soon!
Check them out!!

BonBon DIY!

I just realized I still have my old DIY blog out there in good old It chronicles some of the home improvements that were attempted on my home. The guy that lived here before me (us) was such a moron. He mustv'e fancied himself to be good at home improvements, but all he did was mess things up! I wish I could say to people like him: HIRE SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE WORK!! LOL :) is the link! :)

I'm still here!

I've been a little MIA... to be honest, I've been feeling "creatively stumped." The fertility meds I'm on make me feel tired, depressed, bloated, hungry, and just so drained. I can't explain it, normally I am a go-go-go type of person.  Working out in the morning, working all day, and working on jewelry at night. But for awhile now, I've been so wiped out... mentally and physically.

I'm hoping to create some new fertility jewelry this weekend, to jump start my creative-ness (is that even a word?? lol). What I own of my fertility line, I've been wearing (need all the positivity I can get!) so my etsy shop is is major need of some new designs! I will post as soon as they are done.
Have a great weekend!

I Heart Costco

I freaking love this place. Love the products, prices and of course the free samples! Those carts are extra wide to make sure you fill them up!  lol  Why do I stop in for 2 things and leave with $150 worth of items? Gotta get that 12 pack of socks and wagon wheel size pizza! My mouth is watering thinking about the Stacy's Pita Chips right

Are YOU addicted??
