What is the most fun about designing jewelry?  Playing!! I get the most from spending time playing, not producing, filling orders, or even...

The San Francisco Show

Is here...my first time doing the summer show.  I don't know what to expect but I am hoping for some new faces, new buyers and return customers.  I have some new pieces including crocheted jewelry and some long dangly pieces that are new for me.

In addition I have my new display that was a huge hit last show, so let's hope we keep it rolling. And we were moved to the front of the showroom which will give us more exposure!!!  So with lots of positivity in mind, here it comes!!  Watch out SF!!!!

New Pieces....

I have some great ideas for new pieces, they are all in my head, now if I could get time to make the become reality!!!  I did briefly do a couple of pieces, but let me tell you I need like a week solid of just designing and then I would feel fulfilled.

That's ok.  Some things are just more important.  When all is said and done, no one will ask about my jewelry.  But they will ask about the time I spend with my son.  And that will be the most important thing.

So the orders, the designs, the stores, the customers, all have to wait.  Sorry.

A New Pair of Shoes

I think I mentioned I am a mom.  I love it!  It's great.  But there are times when I think oh how nice it would be to be able to.....

So a friend recently said to me, don't be a victim of your own life.  She was right.  Sometimes I find myself in that staring out there phase thinking, oh I would love to this or that.

One of the things I enjoy the most, and I know I have mentioned this before, is running.  I love to run.  Walk out the door in any city and you can see the sites, take in the air, and make note of the sky just through a run.

So I make sure everyday I get out and run.  Sometimes for 20 minutes, sometimes for an hour and a half, but I love it.  I bring my little bugger with me, and he loves it too.  He has been running with me since he was 2 weeks old, so he is pretty used to it. 

Now with the obligations of a mom, come the tightening of the belt.  I love to run, and I have run my shoes into the ground.  So this weekend, as a little splurge, I said, I want new shoes.  And I found my way to a pair of Nike runners.  So happy, me, my feet, my mind.  It's amazing the little things that make us happy.

So off to the first trail run I have ever done at the end of this month, then to the Vegas Rock n Roll run and who knows where else.  But regardless of where my runs and my shoes take me, I will be sure to not be a victim to my life.
