Life is good. I am making jewelery and attempting to stay out of the sun during this super hot period!

Day job busy but doing okay..........I think something just froze over! LOLOLOL

I am so thrilled that it is the weekend. I have been so non productive it isn't funny. I am not sure if it is the heat/pain or just being tired all the time. Day job has been the day job...bleck. It is a cloudy not was hot as usual day. I am thinking about buying a better camera for taking pictures of jewelery. I truly believe that is why our sales are down because our pictures aren't the best. People buy our jewelery all the time when they see it so that is the next project, take new pictures of everything & repost everything on Etsy.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

need energy and more balance

"To believe is to dream" not sure if that belongs to anyone already but it just popped in my head so if it doesn't, then it is my quote:)

Day job is overwhelming all my do anything! I went to bed super early last night but my house is still clean LOLOLOL.......

My plans aren't working with personal stuff so I am throwing them to the wind and just be.

We have a baby rattlesnake hanging out by the day job, it is cool and I did call animal control. I am exhausted so not much jewelery designing nor making in progress, tonight I go to Target to buy that camera thing so I can get stuff posted on Etsy.

Hot hot and hot....

As you probably have guessed, it is HOT in Tucson. I did my errands and just remembered what I forgot to purchase while I was at Target, that picture thing, OH CRAP! I have new pieces made and they are sitting there pouting because they aren't in the sites yet:(

It has been a zoo here at the day job. I am tired and trying to think of something to say but I forget... LOLOLOL

Stay cool, laters....

Favorite Etsy shop

I love this shop espically for the items that we make for our Viva Mexico shop, I would like to present:

Lachapina had wonderful and beautiful pieces from huiples and other goods from Guatemala which are bright, full of history and are simply wonderful to work with. This piece below which is listed in Vivamexico, the dancing dolls are from this shop:

You will enjoy your shopping experience with her:)


PRAISE GOD IT IS FRIDAY AND NO DAY JOB FOR 2 DAYS................................
**Picture taken from my backyard.....beautiful isn't it, shows God's majesty:)**

Evil noise

is finally gone...............PRAISE GOD! Now, last night, I have the most awesome idea for a necklace, got my butt out of bed, dug for something to draw it on and it will be coming to life in stages here:) It is going to involve more crafty stuff from me and Ms Margot Potter just inspired me last night............hee,hee....just wait!!


The alarm system at the day job is goofed up and they can't get a tech out here until tomorrow, okay we can live with the noise going off occasionally, what is driving all of us nuts, the high pitch beeping that is going on that I have to contact the company to shut this thing off and no one is there! sigh..........


Bleck, I much rather be busy at beading. My power went out for an hour and a half. It was hot in my house, so I went outside and just watched the storm in my porch. It was AWESOME! When the electricity went back on, I ate and then I saw the cardinal that I see sometimes and his red coloring against the steel gray sky was beautiful! I did try to take a picture but the flash went off and totally ruined it, darn it.

I haven't been able to swim nor bead this past couple of days so I will tonight, hopefully no monsoon!

Pick up your favorites today before they go bye bye and get converted into another piece of jewelery!

I don't know about you but

I am getting tired of all the Michael Jackson stuff....what is going on in the world? Is it just me, or is this getting old?

Behold the monkey created...

Yes, it is back!!!! I was one creative person these 3 days off. I feel so much better. I re watched Factory Girl and made a necklace with Edie Segwick in mind. I have it on today. It is black and white and hopefully retro. I also made a couple of rings, which is pretty unusal for me to do and they both turned out quite nicely if I do say so myself:)

I made a couple of necklaces with the beads that I won from Lorelei back when. One of them is full of skulls with one of those glass art beads and skulls from Gaeawhom I love and I can't spell either name correctly right now but I promise (all fixed:)) I believe that one will go to the museum gift shop in San Antonio. Oh I have my jewelery or I should state mom and I's jewelery in a museum gift shop in San Antonio. It is fun to state that but of course, sales are a bit down:(

Friday I will pick up a thingee that my mom had so I can download/edit and get new product out in our Etsy stores...I am thinking about a huge sale also just to move stock out:) I will let everyone know here and on my Facebook. I am on Facebook, not the business but thinking about getting that addressed soon.

Happy 4th of July!

I guess no fireworks for the city of Tucson but some neighbors are shooting some off and that is all I need. May God bless our country and keep it safe!

I am at work and taking drugs....I am hoping that I can get more relaxed so this shoulder will quit binging me. bleck.

Must make some more bracelets for our jewelery that I finally got up in Copper Country! I need to find the stick thing mom had that allows me to put my picture disk in it and upload to the computer right away:)

I had bunnies and quail in my backyard last night. I do believe the bobcats have moved on to something cooler. I also found out that we do have a mountain lion living in our wash here!!! WOW, I definately don't want to run into her/him!

This 3 day weekend, I am going to relax, buy some beads, go to pool and start beading!

funky and not in a good way either

I haven't been feeling too hot these past couple of days. I have fibromyglia and arthitis so everytime the weather changes, my pain rating shoot up and I am miserable. Since the monsoons are finally hitting now, this monkey girl is miserable.

Everyone have a safe and blessed 4th of July weekend and always remember those who fought for our freedom!
