I experienced many great moments these past 12 months and I'm so thankful for each and every one. I must mention that, without a doubt, one of my best moments was 'meeting' my sweet friend Janell! She is the reason I set up my shop on etsy.com. Besides being a very talented artist, she is sincerely a sweet person and friend. Thank you Janell - you're a big part of my life!
I also want to thank my boys Jeremy & Jason who are the best kids a parent could every hope for! A HUGE thank you to Mark, my soulmate/best friend/hubby, who stands by me, supports me, encourages me, listens to me, and loves me unconditionally - even when I ramble, like now.
On that note, I have many goals for the coming year, both personally and professionally. In fact, my brain is swimming with so many new creations to, well, create, that I don't know where to start exactly. Well, actually I do know where to start and that would be with my list.
Happy New Year everyone and thank you all!
p.s. The ring shown here is another fun creation of mine. Feel free to visit my etsy.com shop to see more :)

These stones are amazing in person and I wanted to create with them right away! Mark even commented on how beautiful they are - and that's coming from a guy who referes to my inventory as 'car parts'.
While sitting in my studio and looking at my other stones, it hit me. Gorgeous new Poppy Jasper squares with Poppy Jasper rounds! Yep, that will work. I didn't want to use all the squares, so I'm thinking up another creation to use with them. Feel free to check out the entire creation in my Etsy.com shop.
Have a happy day!

Being drawn towards more earthy and natural materials, this creation seemed to flow while listening to one of my Native American flute cd's. Very inspiring music.
Eclectic Organic Serenity was created with many natural materials. If you would like to see more of this creation with the list of materials used, or any of my other creations, please feel free to visit my shop at: http://www.rockisrocknbeads.etsy.com/.
I wish you all a very happy day!

This will be my very first time in Hawaii and I'm terribly excited! Mark has been there before when he was in the Navy, but that was many moons ago. We're making this our gift to each other in celebration of our 13th wedding anniversay - which is in November.
We have some activities planned, like a helicopter ride, snorkeling/boat ride and a luau, other than that, we're going to just relax, eat, shop, site see on our own, eat, shop, relax and shop (I have a suit case set aside just for beads, but don't tell Mark!)
This has been planned for months and now as I type this, it is only 2 days and a wake up away! We'll be there for 1 week - that's 7 days! Don't worry, I'm not going to count the hours and minutes - math is not my friend ;)
Better get back to packing now. I'll be blogging about this trip once we return home. Aloah!

We headed over to GlasPro to schedule the replacement of the window and they graciously offered to replace my Rock n Window right then (thank you GlasPro!) So we headed over to grab a bite to eat, discussed our upcoming vacation plans (that will be my next blog when we return) and the weirdness of being hit with a ROCK at that moment. It 'cracks' me up just thinking about it.

(insert cricket noise)
Okay, so there's not much to read or look at right now, but give me a little time and I'll have this place up and running soon.
I want to give a big THANK YOU to my sweet friend DancingMooney for encouraging me to set up my etsy.com shop, which led me to FINALLY set up my blog. You can find my dear talented friend here in the blog world and also at: http://www.dancingmooney.etsy.com/
Okay, I told hubby "just one more entry" and then I would go plop on the couch and watch a movie with him. Guess my "one more thing" ended up to be, well, just a tad over ;)
Come back soon. You can also visit me at:
http://www.rockisrocknbeads.com/ (a work in progress)
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
p.s. Speaking of time, do you know where I can buy some?
