Yart Sale

Here it is the Etsy site wide Yart Sale hosted by Etsy Supply Street Team (ESST). Not only can you find great deals on hand crafting supplies of all kinds, EVERY SHOP on Etsy is welcome to participate. You can go to the ESST blog for more info and shop's participating.
To search for items, use "yart", as many shops will have tagged their items with this.
I am offering sales in both my shops! Since I am a member of ESST, my supply shop, will be offering 25% off all items in the Vintaj/brass section. (Look for YART SALE SECTION)
And in my hand crafted jewelry shop, there will be a special section of YART SALE items listed at 30% off, plus another special I won't reveal yet. You'll have to stop by the shop.
Enjoy these 5 days of savings!

New items in my shop and more news

I finally got a job! Part-time only for now, but that's o.k. It's been over 8 months since I've worked out of the home. And it's not easy to get back in the swing of things when you've been away from it for so long. Boy, am I tired, and boy, is my body sore! BTW: I am a veterinary technician, C.V.T. It's all new, so we'll see how it goes!
Here's a couple of new items that I've finished. First is a lapis and Hill Tribe silver necklace with a Hill Tribe pendant. It's simple, but it's something I've been wanting to make. Oh, and I made this great anklet; lapis with crystal quartz and Herkimer diamond. If you've never seen or heard of Herkimer diamonds, they are hard like a real diamond and have great shine, they look like glass with double terminated points.

And I made this fun "candy apple" bracelet and earring set. Great lampwork beads from Quinlan Glass and lots of heavy gauge wire wrapped beads, coils and clasp.

Oh, I must…

A walk in my neighborhood

I thought it would be fun to take a stroll around my town here in Florida. Hope you enjoy it. First we'll start out on foot, so you can see the lovely ponds that we have and the walking paths I take often.

The gazebo. And the path around this pond.

This is the path right behind our condo; we are on a preserve.

This is a boat dock in one of the nature parks closest to us, that leads out to the lake.

Down the road a ways, you'll find fields, cows, and birds!

A few miles away, near my father's house is this little pier over the water and where people bring their dogs to swim! (dog beach)

Looking into the water from the pier.
Our local bird, the egret.
The Atlantic ocean.

Here is the art center where I've been taking classes.

My favorite place to shop!

My favorite place for groceries!

Well I hope you enjoyed the walk in my neighborhood. You know, taking these photos really makes one appreciate all that surrounds them. I am so glad that I did this!
