Over a year of absence. Longest I've been away from this blog, I think. I'm still here. For awhile it was tough going with health and personal issues. But I believe I've found the health care I need to keep moving on.

I fully intend to get back into the swing of things. You can find me over at Smashing Darling. It's a wonderful place to be. Come visit me there...

what a great year this is turning out to be! 2010 started out mighty bumpy but the road has become more serene. i've cleared out the excess baggage i carried around for over a year and set some goals for myself. and began to focus on what makes me happy. i'm happiest when i'm learning and creating. so i've decided to go back to school and work less at the day job. which has given me the space i needed mentally and emotionally to finally feel like creating again.

there is so much i want to expand my jewelry-making skills! i recently learned how to create the rings pictured above. i'm so happy to be able to share this new skill...i've been practicing every chance i get.

i hope you like them as much as i do! because i am going to be giving one away this month...custom made for you with your favorite word or name stamped on it and i will ship it to you where ever you may be on this lovely planet of ours. just leave a comment telling me about one of your goals this year and on june 31st 10pm HST, the random number generator will pick the winner.

giveaway "rules":  1) leave a comment on this post only. 2) one comment per person. 3) you have until june 30th, 2010 at 10pm Hawaii time.


***Thank you to all who left their comments. I enjoyed reading about everyone's goals. I will be notifying the winner soon!***

things are picking up around here. i decided to move to part-time work so i can focus more on jewelry and finishing up my degree this fall. without the stress of a full-time job, my brain has been in overdrive and i'm needing to write things keep my ideas focused. i'm loving it. even made a couple sales in my shop. i'm always grateful that there are people that appreciate what i create. it's a wonderful feeling!

goes to show that whatever we focus on grows...
