Year of Jewelry ~ Weeks 19 & 20 ~ and some other random things..................

For week 19, I once again did not follow the prompt, which was "Your Favorite Flower". My favorite flower is the "Swingtime" fuchsia  It is just so fluffy and happy looking☺ I still plan on trying my hand at making some polymer clay fuchsia but for week 19, I was busy with a custom order. A new customer of mine had a beach stone that she picked up while overseas many years ago.  It has special meaning to her and she asked if I could "do something" with it. I was a little nervous about whether or not she would like it,  but then again, I always am. She picked it up today and lets just say ~she's a hugger~ WHEW!☺
For Week 20, I did follow the prompt, which was "Made in 10 Minutes" Which was lucky cuz that's about how much time I had. I think I could have gotten one more pair done, but my area is so messed up it took FOREVER to find the copper ear wires, and I ran out of time. And, sadly, my work area is going to stay messy a little longer …

Year of Jewelry ~ Week 18

I'm only a few days late in posting this. Still trying to get caught up☺ The theme for Week 18 was  "Pantone 2013"
This necklace is a similar design to the one I made for Week 4, (the one that found a new home) This one has the addition of leather, which I really like. I was able to incorporate several of the Pantone Spring colors: Emerald, African Violet, Lemon Zest, Monaco Blue, Tender Shoots and Linen.

Hello Internet ~ I've missed you☺

Be warned... I'm feeling a bit chatty☺

So.... A few  weeks ago Hubby decided  that he needed faster internet.
(we really don't, but he thinks we do. If it's available he's got to have it)
(I seriously think it's a guy thing.  What.ever.)
So a couple of weeks ago they came out to upgrade the  lines so we could get the faster speeds, per my husband's request.  They did the "outside work" on Tuesday the 23rd and they would be out on Saturday to do the "inside work". After they were done messing with the wiring on Tuesday (while we were both at work) we had NO internet connection. I was patient ~ Hubby was apologetic and we waited until Saturday,
at which time we found out that we had the wrong wiring coming
 from the "source" to the house and that they
don't do anything "structure to structure"
so WE would have to run the correct wiring before they could proceed.
(Apparently the guys that did the outside work would have…
