New Designs & Embracing the Layered Wrist

You Are Witnessing a Guest Appearance By Alberta's Top Model....I have connections in high places.

This local celebrity and Edmonton's newest Fashion Blogger can be found @

The jewels she is so gracefully modelling are from my newest collection. The larger cross bracelet features beautiful fresh water pearls, and the slim, curved cross is a great gift item as it is adjustable.  Layered is the key to the look!

Fun...don't you think!


Long Time No Post...


It's been so long since my last post that the Kids are all grown up and just barely squeeze into the top floor of the Condo...what can I say...I got a new job; my head was full with learning!

The Christmas Craft Season has crept up suddenly - all most as suddenly as it turned into a Winter Wonderland yesterday.  I have already attended my first sale of the Season and the next is coming soon too!  November 17th and 18th at the Hazeldean Community Center.  It's one of the better shows with many handmade crafts to browse and buy! 

I will post some fabulous photos next time!

A Glimpse of my Christmas Tree...

So, this is what my tree looks like this year....let's just say I wish I had photos of my tree last year.

Poor tree.  It's quite fun to jump and land on top of the branches.  The skirt has also made several trips around the tree as it's quite fun to tunnel through from the inside out, run and slide into and a fantastic place to hide toys.

It's difficult to catch them still in the tree because they really just jump in and out.

In our defense, we did use the water bottle method.  Not too successful as you can see.  Yesterday we just gave up.  I have decided that this year I wouldn't decorate.  For obvious reasons.  I want to have decorations next year!  In their defense, they are only 15 weeks old.  And it's a tree.  Inside.

Does this make us bad pet parents?

We don't care.  It's their Christmas too.

Really, I do a beautiful tree and if my previous year's photos weren't on my hard drive downstairs I would post them and show you!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas To You!

I know, I know...I have been silent for too long.

I have been catching up on my life...everything sort of fell apart when I was preparing for the shows!  At least that's my story and I am sticking to it....I have been one to make house anything my last priority.

I hope you enjoy this holiday season in whatever way makes you happy!  It's so easy to get caught up in the hype and expectations and so easy to forget why we are celebrating in the first place.  We were sent this Savior so that we could just be...let go of expectations and the feeling that we are never good enough, that what we do is not enough, that we "should" be more and being more...Grace has made all of that a mute point.  When we will get it.

So, my thought for you this Christmas is let it go.  So what if you can't get everything done you always do for Christmas.  There's always next year.  Or maybe it won't matter and you will be able to free yourself from that "must do" forever.  So what if you can't find the perfect gift or that recipe you made last year (I can't and have accepted that the recipe I found on line will be just as good!).  Know that only you really notice the dust in your house.  As my Auntie Lori used to say, "They are coming to visit me, not my house".  If you are so stressed that you don't notice the small and wonderful moments that happen then really, you've missed the point of gathering with friends and family.

Of course, I am not denying the fact that red wine will help with the noticing of dust bunnies.

May you feel peace in everything you do.  Be safe, be grateful and enjoy the season.

I have big plans for the New Year and look forward to hopefully getting to know you!

I WILL Be At the Show Tomorrow!

As it turns out due to Winter's ugliness on the highways I can't make it to Calgary so I have decided to turn bad weather into something okay and will be staying at the show tomorrow.

Since this will be my last show for the Christmas Season I will be putting my Snowpeople on half price as well as a great deal on the ornaments.

I will be there from 11 until 4....come on out!

Something I Didn't Anticipate...

I was approached at my last Show to participate in another fabulous event in the same venue the following weekend...when opportunity knocks a girl should answer the door, don't you think?  This event has been organized by the wonderful woman who had the Good Earth Clothing store on 124th Street.  Her enthusiasm to produce a great show is fabulous!  So...I signed up and will be at the show on Friday and Saturday!  I will NOT be there on Sunday as I have a performance of Cinderella to gorgeous niece is dancing in a production in Calgary, which of course is way more important than selling in a craft show...I am sure you understand.

Here's the details...

I hope to see you...and please pass this along to people you's a great cause!
