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!
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!! Kyanite Bullet earrings
I just realized I still have my old DIY blog out there in good old cyberspace...lol. 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 :)
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 saw it in IMAX 3d and LOVED IT! The visuals were stunning. I enjoyed the storyline too! I thought the military dude was a bit over the top, but hey, thats the movies lol! I serioulsy don't know how they created some of those scenes! They were so real, seamless cgi...
What did YOU think of it??
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 now...lol
An animal loving, diet coke addicted artist who loves to laugh! I have always enjoyed creating. Working with beads inspires me. I handcraft pieces like they were for me, as wearable art. This is a place for me to show my new items, showcase other crafters and share my thoughts.
