New Sterling Silver Word, Pea Pod & Swarovski Briolette Crystal Charm Necklace

This one is the Light Rose Swarovski Crystal, Pea pod Charm, and Love Charm

This one is the AB Clear Swarovski Crystal, Pea pod Charm and Joy Charm.

This one is the Aquamarine Swarovski Crystal, Pea pod Charm, and Love Charm.
I haven't had a chance to take 'real' photos of these new necklaces I made the other night. I thought I would give you a sneak peek at them. I'm really excited, they are so simple but very eye catching with the Swarovski Crystal Flat Briolette. I will have many combinations of them to choose from, including Sterling Silver and Oxidized Sterling Silver. I, of course, had to make one for myself. It's so great for those casual outfits. I can wear it with just about every thing in my wardrobe. And my uniform, which is a lot like all those 'soccer' moms out there; t-shirt or tank with jeans or shorts or capri or skirts or (the list goes on). I have received quite of few comments from people about how I'm this jewelry designer and they would have never known it because, one I don't wear jewelry or I don't talk about it. So, with this new necklace there will not be a day that goes by that you won't see me wearing jewelry! Hope you will enjoy them as much as I am. I will keep you updated on when I will have them available for purchasing.

Just need to vent!

OK- I live in Arizona and I am originally from Portland Oregon. At this point in time I would give anything to be back living in Portland, Seattle, or Denver! Random cities I know, but I am familiar with them and I know quite a few people in Portland, a few in Seattle, and maybe one in Denver- but there is one thing for sure- I never had to worry about scorpions in my house, lurking in corners and under things! I hate it here! I moved here just about 9 years ago from Seattle; and I am so glad I did! I met the man who was going to be my husband and the father of my two children, and a wonderful son in law for my parents.
But, I am so ready to pack my husband and my two children and move away! We had decided about three years ago we needed a bigger house, so we found a bigger house less than a mile from our old house, because we loved the area we didn't want move far. Little did we know this house had scorpions! Every year about the same time NOW!!! they come out. Lucky for us our daughter is no longer crawling! But, we found one in her bedroom the other night, just after I found one in the garage. Now the garage I can handle- some what- but not in my house. Our old house we never saw one! I would give anything to be cramped in that small house, if I didn't have to deal with the scorpions- you are probable wondering why I am venting about this now- well my husband who goes around the house with a black light every night looking under beds and behind things, found one in our bathroom!!! I WANT TO MOVE!!!! Those things put me on edge! I am a nervous wreck when it comes to those things. I am sitting at the kitchen table writing this and it is pouring down rain outside, which of course reminds me of Portland and Seattle. Yes, I am willing to give up the sunshine during the winter months so my children are safe!

We are constantly picking things up off the floor making sure those things do not have a place to hide- but ya know they climb walls! I was loading the dishwasher and I found one in the sink! And you know little kids like to hide in cabinets and under clothes in closets and those are the places where the scorpions like to hide!

What do you do, but pray every night that my children will be safe from harm! And that one day my husbands company would like to offer him a job somewhere, where are children can actually crawl into bed with out their mom or dad checking for scorpions with a black light first!

In the mean time I need to talk to my husband again about getting a cat. I would feel a little better if we had one more layer of defense in the house! I hate spraying for them in the house, but now that we have found 2 in the last couple of days upstairs, where normally we never find any! It's time to take some action!

I'm heading up to toss and turn now. I know I won't be able to get any sleep!

Here are just a few pages I've completed lately. Since I've been on the design team for Devine Memories I have not been working on one particular book. I kind of work on what every inspires me. I think that's how it should be. But, then I understand how everyone wants to work in "order of life's events", I just don't have the time nor the patience to work in the "order". So, the first page is from 4 years ago when my brother got married and Bryson was only 3 months old. Yes, that is right I was in a wedding, permanent wedding photos, in a dress in front of all my family and friends 3 months after I had a baby!

This page is from this past Christmas. Now do you see how I jump around!

This is one of my Design Team pages. I love the paper and embellishments they gave me. To capture the moment I tried to use a few pictures to tell the story. I just wish I had made a row of pictures instead of tilting them. Oh, well they are glued down now.
Another project for the Design Team using Rusty Pickle this was a challenge because I would have never pick this paper. So, I did my best at working with the products given to me. I love making mini books, it was just the paper that was challenging. I was suppose to make a 'vacation' book. So, when I saw the paper I thought adventure, tropical, the only thing is the only vacation we have been on that was tropical or adventurous was Hawaii and that was 5 years ago. The good thing is I have never scrapbooked the vacation!

So, if you are interested in any of the products used, just email me or visit Devine Memories the projects will be on display starting Tuesday.
All this talk of scrapbooking- makes me want to go create!!!!
Have a great Sunday!
