I realized I have said in my About Me that I wanted this to be mainly for my jewelry and my personal life will creep in and thus far it has mostly been about my personal life. Well I just wanted to assure you that after I get back from Tucson Gem Show next Friday the 5th I will have much (*crossing fingers*) to post about in the way of jewelry! I can't wait to show you all the great items I find! 

Just a little F.Y.I. 

Until next time...

Xander's 1st Birthday!

I had a great time today at the birthday party! I terribly miss my friends on the west-north side, I often wish we lived closer. I think the worst is leaving them or them leaving me it saddens me a bit not to know when I will see them again.

I took pictures I won't post them all, but here are a few...
 Birthday Boy! Xander! YuM! Cake!
Momma Janae and Xan opening presents
Dani, Janae and me - my girls! I love them!
Jeremy - Xander's dad and me. Cheeese!
Me and the creeper behind me, that would be my husband.

Well he had a great time destroying his cake and opening presents all around it was a wonderful day and I can't wait to see them all again!

Until next time...

Almost February

It seems January flew by. I can hardly believe that it's almost February.

Well as my family and friends know I have a bad back. My L-5 is twisted and I have sciatica nerve problems, sometimes it's to the point of not walking. It seems about once a month this occurs and it has been coming on all week. I went to the chiro today so am hoping to wake all better tomorrow. Sometimes one adjustment works and well other times it might take 5. I REALLY want to go to Tucson next Friday the 5th for the gem show so I MUST get better before then. So good wishes people, good wishes!

Xan's birthday party tomorrow! Should be a great time seeing everyone again!

That's about it for this Friday

Until next time...

New Necklace

I made a simple goal for this morning, to make a necklace and I accomplished that goal. I think that is how I need to approach things - one task at a time not a million, then I just get overwhelmed.

This is a Wood Pendant (sadly no I am not talented enough to have painted it) with Red Jasper beads and Black Onyx beads. The pendant is a LARGE pendant, so if you like big you'll love this necklace!

 This necklace is posted on TDT Designs at Etsy already.

This afternoon I must go buy a present for my dear friends baby Xan's 1st birthday, I am excited to see all of my westsiders on Saturday.

However if I have time I will make another jewel today!

Have a great day!

Until next time...

Spilled Coffee

I had planned on making a necklace to post tonight but instead spilled a cup of coffee on me, my desk and the floor. I decided to walk away for a bit.

1 Dog and 1 Stray Cat = Love Affair

Every morning when I take Sophie out I have to battle a stray cat. If I don't intervene Sophie would never get to relieve herself. This stray cat isn't so very afraid of me, I have to get pretty close before he/she will leave Sophie alone. Here are a few pictures from this mornings meeting..

It's love - I don't understand it, but it's true my pup is in love with a cat.

Next Friday the 5th I will be going to the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. 

I am quite excited! I have been a few years and last year I didn't have any idea what I wanted and it was an unsuccessful trip but this year I am going through my bins
to see what I will need to get. Definitely pendants and I think I'd like more freshwater pearls. By the end of Feb. I should have some great new jewelry made to have on my websites. 

Well it's time to start the day. We have a few sprinkles and thunder out there today, but I don't think it will be anything like last week!

Have a great day! 

Until next time...

Tuesday, January 26, 2010


Hello! I'm finally ready for my first post! I am the type of person that likes to start things on Monday but since I was away from the house all day I am starting today - Tuesday. This is me...

For those that are just running across this blog and wondering who I might be here is a bit of information. My name is Teresa, I'm 36 and the wife to a hardworking wonderful man. We have been together 20 years next month and have been married 12.5 years.

 I design and make jewelry, upkeep on my websites and have done so since 2003. (There are links to the right for my website and my Etsy store.) I am also a babysitter, errand runner and sometimes counselor to friends and family. We have our adorable (and ever so spoiled) Shih Tzu puppy Sophie she is 2 years old.

I love to design and make jewelry, however I need to learn to wear it more. It seems when people ask what I do I am never wearing any jewelry and might have possibly lost a sale. I really must work on that! I love to read and will love to write since I am starting a blog ha. I probably watch too much TV but as with reading it is my guilty pleasure.

I think that is a good introduction. I hope to blog often, I might even add to this more today. I do have a lot to say, I only hope I don't bore people!

I'm still working on prettying up my blog so please hang in there with me while I get the hang of this! 

Until next time...
