Vintage inspired idea for earrings

Going through old craft and crochet magazines and leaflets my mom was going to throw away, I found an interesting and cool idea. Just a few days ago, I was brainstorming for ideas. I needed a different design for earrings. I have a customer and she is well...eclectic. I had made earrings made of guitar pics for her once. But, this time she wanted something different. Well, going through these vintage magazines, I found one. The leaflet showed earrings made of crochet circles. My design will be of crochet circles but I will add beads and make them chandelier style. I'm sure my eclectic customer will love them. In fact, I think I will make some for me, too.

Have a blessed day.

Last week was a week of cleaning and eating at my house. I was having a Thanksgiving "lunch" at my house with my parents and my siblings and their families. With four children, it's hard to keep an organized home. There's toys all over the place; the good thing is that they pick up at the end of the day. So, having company over meant I had to really clean house. Since I had a back injury, I try to do everything slowly. Before, I could do chores within hours. Now, it takes longer. It took me three days to clean and organize mostly everything.

On Thursday, I got up early and started chopping celery and onion (which my family and I love in our stuffing). I had everything cooked and baked by the time my parents arrived around 11:30 am. By 12:30 we were serving our lunch. It's enjoyable having family over. There was lots of laughs and did our kids have fun playing.

But, there was so much food and boy did I eat a lot. My kids don't really like the idea of eating turkey again the next day. I made turkey sandwiches on Friday and there was complaining: "Turkey again!?"

This morning I trying to figure out why there's turkey smell in my house. I'm using deodorizers, hope that helps. I feel like I ate too much these past days (guilty). Also,since we have been in and out of the house more than usual this weekend, there's toys all over the place, again. Back to the daily routines.

I forgot, I found this great article on how to stay slim during the holidays, anyone interested just join our mailing list and I will send that to you asap. Have a lovely week.

Metallic purple earrings

According to MSN in the fashion section, purples, reds, black and white, chocolate, and emerald green, including metallics are the "in" colors for this Fall. I went ahead and made a cute pair of earrings in metallic purple. I just ordered a couple of strands of beads in the above colors. With the Christmas holiday just around the corner, I'm behind. (Remember I was in the hospital:) I'm working diligently, I promise.

Welcome to Sacred Stones & Gifts Blog
I am very excited having launched my website a month ago. There's a lot of work I need to catch up. A couple of weeks ago I injured my back. I was hospitalized for almost a week. I couldn't walk or get up the hospital bed. That was the worse part for me. It turned out I had a herniated disc. But, thank God I'm better!! I have no need in taking medications, no need for surgery and I'm pain free. A few days ago I visited the specialist and he was impressed in my fast healing. I just praise the Lord for that.
For that reason, I am behind my work. There are many products that need to be added in my website. There a orders that need to be filled plus there are some fall shows I will be doing every other weekend. Boy, am I busy! I'll be adding new jewelry for the fall season in my website. Make sure to check that out. Many other cool products will be added that are just perfect for the holidays, too. Let me know what you think.
