Blog, Blog, Blog

Hello and good morning,

I have been busy setting up three new blog spot's, so yes that Is a total of four. By starting these other blog community It will open up so many avenues. When I get them all finished up, to my liking I will post some link's.

Tomorrow Is the big B- day. So, I would like to have a special In my shop for all you wonderful customer's. Tomorrow until 12.00 midnight every purchase made will get a FREE birthday gift from me. I can't tell you what It Is because then It wouldn't be a surprise but I think you all will love It. I will give you a hint, It Is jewelry, something that Is listed In my shop right now. Go ahead take a peek and see If you can guess what It Is.

Tomorrow I will be going out with My Mom and Sister. We are going to go shopping and then out to dinner. I plan to be gone from Dennis for about six hours. That Is along time for me not to be with him. I have a very good nurse that comes In once and a while that I trust completely and I'm only a phone call away. I don't travel to far away from my home, because I want to get home quickly If he needs me.

Well need to run. Have a fabulous week.

God Bless,

Get Ready Cause Here They Come

Hey, Isn't that a song.

I have been devoting every spare minute to designing and making new piece for the up coming Fall season. Fall Is my favorite time of year. In fact Dennis and I were married October 12th. We picked that day because the leaves have changed by then the tree's are beautiful and the memories we carry In our minds of those days are unforgettable. We use to go to a little town every year named Galena. It was full of B&B. We would try to stay at a different place Every year.
On Main street they have quint little shop's, great food and magnificent scenery.
If you ever get a chance to go there, you should. It truly Is a beautiful place that holds so many memories In my heart.

I still have the 1/2 off section In my shop. I have sold quiet a few but there Is still some great summer piece. In fact now would be a great time to start your Christmas shopping, and remember all of my pieces are shipped with a little surprise.

Have to run. Take care. Stop by for a visit at my Etsy shop

Whee, Is all I have to say. What a long week. I haven't had any help this week with my husband so I've been going solo. Our Nurse that helps two day's a week has hurt their back, I'm not sure when they will be returning. Oh well, I will manage to get everything done....Just keep telling yourself that..Kathi

I got those cute little pouches In the mail yesterday. They are sooooo neat. I will take some photo's and put them up hopefully sometime today.

I am going to make Salsa today..yummy. I usually end up giving most off It away to Family and Friend's. All though I think I am going to can some this year. Won't that be tasty In December.

Don't forget the 1/2 off section I just added In my shop.

Have a fabulous week end, we are going to a Birthday Party for my Great Niece that turns one.
Her name Is, Finley and she Is a absolute doll.

Have I got um. I have so many tomatoes I will never use them all so today after I finish up with Dennis's I am going around the neighborhood and giving them away, I bet you wished you were living In my neck of the wood's.

Yesterday we went to see the Bourn Ultimatum, what a great movie. I highly recommend.
Dennis loved It. He loves to go to the movie but I have to say It takes allot of time making sure everything Is perfect. We have so much stuff that we have to take, It Is like having a set of twins. But It Is always worth It to see him smile. That smile will light up a room. As a ALS patient you loose all of your muscle control basically, you have none, AT ALL. Sometimes people will loose facial muscle but that goodness Dennis hasn't. If those eyes could talk, what would they say. hum, I'm not sure.

Well I have to run. We are having company today. Don't forget the shop special Is still going on until 12.00am. Have a great day..Kathi

Hot Hot Hot

Oh my Lord Is It ever hot. Yesterday I was making homemade Salsa all afternoon so I didn't really have to get out In the heat to much but boy when I did. It just about takes your breath away when It's that Hot.
Last night In rained and we sure needed It. Ginger Is so afraid of the thunder and Lightning she just gets frantic. Pacing back and forth not sure what the heck Is going on, so we don't get much sleep when It Is doing that out side.

I have listed some new pieces on my Etsy site so you will have to take a peek at those.
I am still learning how to navigate this crazy blog but I'm getting there.

Last Sunday I had a contest through my Etsy shop to win one of the Trinket necklaces. The contest was, guess how many brass Sparrows where listed In the pieces In my shop. The response was overwhelming and allot of fun. I had people visiting my shop that might not other wise know It was there. There Is so much competition with jewelry designer's on Etsy you have to always be thinking of ways to promote, promote, Promote. But I enjoying doing that.

Have to run, I am working on some custom order's this week so I need to get back to those.
Have a fabulous Wednesday. Take Care.

Catch Up

Man oh man. We had out of town guest all week. We had a great time but, I was very busy. I could In no way put my Caregiver duties to the side for the week. Dennis was so patient and knew how busy I was. He watched TV or surfed around on the Internet. He amazes me sometimes how he just sits back like he saying to his self, hey I can do this. I will live with ALS and enjoy my life to the best of my ability. Yeah for Dennis...My hero !

Last week when I had some free time from entertaining I was able to make a few pieces and list them In my shop. One piece I made was a pretty antique brass bracelet. I made myself one and wore It out Saturday shopping. I tell you just about every person had such kind word's to say about the piece. So I made sure to reach down In that purse of mine pull out a business card and simply say, You too can have a bracelet just like this. Hop on over to my Etsy shop and there you will find one. You can check out the bracelet to the left column.

This week I will be playing catch up. I will be trying to up grade my blog, since there Is so much you can do I haven't even scratched the service. My goal Is to have everything running smoothly by the Holiday shopping season.

I have some exciting thing's In the work's with my jewelry and I will share them later on this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my blog. Have a great day..Kathi
