I'm currently working on my 2008 show schedule. Last year I didn't do a lot of shows, but this year, I'm hoping to get involved in a few more around town.
Many of you know I love to scrapbook, and there is a new contest with Creating Keepsakes Magazine- Hall of Fame. I've been picking up new paper and embellishments lately, so I will make some new pages, and when I feel like I have enough to choose from I will make my decision, whether or not I will enter. I just love all the new 'stuff'' I've picked up, now all I need is new ink for my printer! I also received from my husband a new camera for my birthday! So, now I have no excuse but to snap away at my ever growing children!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season! My husband took some vacation days so we had a great time visiting with family and chillin' out around the house. We did so much remodeling this past summer, that it's nice to just sit back and enjoy our house. Maybe next summer we can remodel the upstairs!
Well for the next couple of weeks I will be working on a spring/summer 2008 line! I've been finding some great stones and pearls and I can't wait to get started!
If you haven't picked up the latest Bead Trends magazine Jan/Feb 2008 issue- I have 6 pieces in there!!! Again, it is so exciting to see my creations in print! Wow! Very cool! I will be submitting some new pieces for the May/June issue. Wish me Luck!
I'll right, it feels good to be writing again!
Wishing everyone a Safe, Happy and Healthy New Years Eve 2008!!!

WOW!! What a great time! It was great to meet so many customers and see such a wide variety of artists! I was across from t'z Market Place- and there was great wine being poured and great music being played! Looking forward to next months Art walk on November 7th! Hope to see you there. Stop by my table to see what's new and just say HI! About half my inventory is new for fall and I have some great markdowns I've done for the shows and events!
Be sure to check out the events page to see were we will be next. There are some great events we've signed up for located all over the city!
I just wanted to thank my dad for taking to and from the Art Walk, and helping me set up! And thank my husband for taking care of the kids- even venturing out to take Bryson to soccer! Without the support and love of my family - my business would not be possible!
Getting really excited about Arbonne! I will be putting in my samples order and Holiday inventory order today!!! I just love all the lotions and salt scrubs they have to offer! I'm not sure if I've mentioned the skin care line- But I love it!!! Last night someone looked really surprised when I told them I had been creating jewelry for 17 years!! Now that says something about this skin care line! I haven't had compliments on my age for a few years! I feel like the RE9 line really works- I've been watching my wrinkles disappear!!! I just love it!
If you can book a home show we can do foot scrubs for your girlfriends, make jewelry, and just shop for jewelry and lotions!
Have a great day! -Trisha

You can check out their website Chandler Art Guild and read up on all the great info. There is even a list of artist who belong and I am on that list!
I just love all media, but I will only show my jewelry work. There are two paintings I gave to my parents that I did when I was in college, guess where they are hanging...the Garage Walls!!! I think it is so funny. It is the first thing my parents see when they pull in. My dad found a great place to hang them. LOL!!!
I think I used some great techniques in them, but they are only worthy of the garage!!!
Better get going...It is so beautiful outside, I want to take advantage of it!

Last night my husband and I had a mini date night. Thanks to my parents. They watched our children so we could sneak away and enjoy a little wine tasting and good music at a local restaurant in downtown Chandler. We visited with some local people and just enjoyed each others company. Amazing how much catching up we were able to do when we did not have two children to talk over and around!
Don't forget Father's Day- my son and I did some fun painting at Mind Over Splatter, a shop in downtown Chandler, where you can paint pottery. We had a lot of fun!
I picked up some new scrapbook supplies on Wednesday and Friday of last week. I am so excited. I got up early this morning to start diggin' in! I can't wait to start putting together my daughter's baby book.
Hope everyone has a great week. I already know mine is packed full!

I've been working on adding my mid summer line. Trying to come up with a new design for the Baby Addison Bracelet card. I'm very excited about the new necklaces I will be adding to the line. But that is about all I can tell you for now! I might just show you a sneak peek one of these days!
I have to go hit the gym tonight and yet I would rather stay in and do some scrapbooking. I picked up some new paper at the store today. Of course I was only going for the ribbon. And walked out with paper and embellishments! Ha, Ha!
I decided to change the look of the gift boxes for my jewelry business. I will have chocolate boxes with a chocolate and light blue striped ribbon. I real love the chocolate color! I don't have the pictures posted yet, but stop by next week and check them out.
Have a great week. I'm headed to make dinner, oh and fold clothes, and, and, and... Yes, I'm a real mom and wife and I run a business from home. Ha, Ha!

Have a great week! Check back for more great goodies. Don't forget we are running a special this month 10% off your total order! Just stop by the boutique www.BGBJewelry.com and enter the code May10 at check out.

As for family, we had a pretty rough day, I think my son woke up on the wrong side of the bed. But, we made it through! Tomorrow is a new day and he is finally down to sleep now. My daughter, luckily, was doing great today. And my husband came home with two ear infections. But, he managed to make dinner for all of us! I am sure lucky!
I didn't get a whole lot completed to day with my business or scrap booking. Just one step at a time. I have a list of things to accomplish and I am marking them off one at a time. I still have some work to complete tonight and yet here I am starting up a blog! LOL
Well, I'm trying to get my jewelry in a few stores online and 'brick and mortar' as they like to call them. So, I need to finish up my samples and head to bed. We have an early morning.
