make time to make.

March is almost here and I am THRILLED. When I left for work this morning the sun was shining, the sky was blue...what a perfect day.

So I have been working on making pendants for awhile now and want to share them with you. The images are saved from old magazines and storybooks and make these necklaces truly unique. It took me awhile to get comfortable with making these as jewelry making in general is a very new medium for me, but now I am in love!

My last show is the first time I offered these for sale and I got a good response from shoppers. Right now I only have a few for sale in my etsy shop but plan to add more. I love these pendants because they are BIG and bold and such a fun shape. I'm offering the pendant only or pendant on an adjustable 18" necklace. I also think these would look gorgeous worn with a ribbon.

This weekend is going to be full of cleaning, playing and hopefully some crafting.

I promise to make time to make if you do?

Well I think I'm officially over winter. It seems like I always get to a point around February or March where I just can't handle the season any more. This year the crazy is apparently coming early for me. The cold and snow are not my favorite but those things aren't what bother me. It's the lack of light. The grey days. Such minimal sun. I am so glad that the days are getting longer because I am totally done with it being dark when I leave for work in the morning and having something like an hour of daylight when I get home. This lady is looking forward to spring!!

We have a couple of shows coming up! If you're in the Madison area, please stop by the Valentine Craftacular at the High Noon Saloon on February 13. Free goody bags for the first 25 shoppers! We'll also be showing off our goodies on March 14 at the Daisy Cafe and Cupcakery from 4-8pm. Hope you can make it!

I love Valentine's Day. I especially love Valentine's Day crafting. It's a good thing that I got started early this year because I think I have hit a wall with creating for the holiday. I made some fun cards and goofy buttons and printed some old favorites. One of last year's designs was featured on along with several other great geeky valentine cards. Awesome!

Hope you are enjoying February! Or at least tolerating it. Spring will be here soon!
