Back again

I am back from a wonderful time in Cape Cod. I'm happy to be home, but I sure miss the nice weather. It's SO hot here! But we are on the downside of summer, so that's good.

Many changes happening, all good. My partner and I tied the knot in Massachusetts while she visited for two overlapping weeks while I was there. We got married in my parent's back yard. It was a beautiful ceremony, and so special. Just family, very small and low key.

Then about two weeks ago, right after I returned, a little stray kitten showed up in our yard. He's all black, absolutely adorable and sweet (his name is Henry) and I have not been getting a lot done since he arrived! He's too active for me to get a photo, but I will try and capture one soon. My honey isn't sure we need 4 cats (crazy cat lady starter kit, anyone?), but I think if we can get the other cats acclimated he will be a great edition to our household.

I have also been hard at work on my fall line of jewelry. I have a couple of new shops, so am getting some pieces together for them, and I need to get some new pieces in my etsy shop too. I want to hit the shops hard before the holidays and reach my goal of 40 shops by the end of the year. I'm up to 27 shops now, so we will see where I end up.

Here's a little peek at the fall line:

another rainy day

I have been hanging out with my Grandma watching the raindrops pour down today while my parents enjoy a quick little getaway in upstate NY. It was a great day to work and I got an order completed and put up a couple of new necklaces on etsy:

waiting for Andrew

We're settled in ready to watch for Hurricane Andrew which is scheduled to reach Cape Cod by tonight around 9pm. It has been downgraded to a tropical storm, and we are not going to get much in the way of wind, just some rain. It was a good day to make jewelry:

Thursday, June 12, 2014


After a wonderful week long visit to Portland, I am prepping to head out again on Saturday. There is always so much to do before a trip! I did have time to create some jewelry this week, here are a couple of photos. I am really into an industrial, patinaed look right now. Raw, full of texture, a little old, a little new...

Lots of contacts

I've spent the past three days researching and calling boutiques and gift shops all over the country. My little fingers are ready for a break from all the emails I've been sending! Hopefully some good connections will come from it.

No new pieces over the past few days, but a few I haven't shared yet:

These are already gone to their respective shop locations. Hoping to put some new pieces in the etsy store in the next couple of days.
