Happy Holidays!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted on my blog! Where has the time gone?
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Eid or whatever holiday you celebrate at this time of year. Now that Christmas is over it's time for me to get back to work. I have been thinking alot about trying different techniques for creating my jewelry. I'm going to be reading alot of info and trying new things and I promise to post pictures as soon as I have something.
I'm also going to build myself a light box. I'm hoping better pictures will intrigue people to take a look at my jewelry and BUY SOME! LOL.
So stay tuned for the new changes. The new year is going to be very exciting!

Black Friday is here!

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone (and been eaten) and it's now time to start frantically shopping for Christmas. The newspaper was full of stories this morning about people sitting outside retail stores since 11:30 am Thanksgiving day, waiting for the big sale. I personally, never go out on Black Friday. The idea of being crowded in a building with lots of other people and then standing in line forever trying to pay for something, gives me the heebee geebees.

It's also time to start the old Christmas decorating. If your looking for a beautiful, fresh cut tree - look no further than Plantation Pines Christmas Tree Farm in Tyler, Texas. They have beautiful trees in a gorgeous country setting with FREE hot chocolate and a wonderful gift shop where you can do all your shopping. I am selling my jewelry pieces in their gift shop for the second year in a row and I hope everyone really enjoys them. I've taken some really pretty pieces out there so if your in the area, stop in and browse. Even if your not in the market for a fresh tree, the gift shop is worth the drive. Check out their website at You will not be disappointed.

Happy Holidays!

Getting ready for Plantation Pines Christmas Tree Farm!

I am getting some of my jewelry pieces ready to take to the AWESOME gift shop out at Plantation Pines Christmas Tree Farm. They will be opening their doors next weekend for all the Christmas tree shoppers coming to chop down a tree. It is located between Tyler and Lindale off of Hwy 69 North and is definitely worth the drive. Their trees are beautiful and their gift shop has soooo many cute things (including mine, of course). If your in the area, stop by and see.

But never fear, my etsy shop will remain open for all of your holiday needs! My earrings make great stocking stuffers and I have cell phone charms that are too cute!

As an added feature, you can get your purchase gift wrapped for only $1.00 and I will mail it out to the gift recipient if you so choose.

Happy shopping!

Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving?

And soon the Christmas season will be in full swing! We have some neighbors up the street from our house who seem to compete with each other every year with yard decorations. They live across the street from each other and every year their yards get brighter and brighter. I bet their electric bills are gianormous! We are just waiting for the first decoration to go up and we think it will be this coming weekend. The great thing about it though, is that no one else needs to turn on their regular outside lights because those 2 houses light up our whole neighborhood.

It does look pretty though!

Halloween is only 3 days away!

Can you believe how fast time is flying? Halloween is only 3 days away and I haven't even started decorating my yard for the Trick R' Treaters. I absolutely must do that today! LOL After that it will be time to get out the ol' Christmas decorations. At least I have already started my Christmas shopping - so I'm a step ahead of the game.

I was at our local mall a few days ago and JC Penney's already has all their Christmas decorations up. Wreaths and little trees and everything. The employees looked a little embarrassed by the Christmas finery when we haven't even had Halloween yet. Sad how retailers try to hurry the time up even more. It just makes us all older. Sigh.

Rose Festival is over - on to Christmas!

Well the Rose Festival Arts and Crafts show has come and gone! And what a great weekend it was! I sold lots of my jewelry pieces, a few of my handpainted pieces and I met some really nice customers and fellow vendors.

Time now to start thinking about the upcoming Christmas season. I will have some of my jewelry pieces at the Plantation Pines Christmas Tree farm gift shop starting Thanksgiving weekend. But for right now, I'm still trying to get all my current listings reactivated on etsy. Hope to finish that big job by tomorrow. My fingers are crossed. :)

Getting ready for craft show!

I have a big (for me) craft show coming up in less than 2 weeks. AAARRRGGGH! I have so much to do I can't think straight. Luckily, I made a list, which I'm still adding to about 20 times a day. LOL
Just got a new shipment yesterday of really cool jewelry supplies, so I have to get beading. Check out my etsy shop, and if you see something you like, now's the time to buy. I'll be taking my entire inventory to the craft show, so it may not be in my etsy shop if you wait. ;)

Pumpkin Patch Day!

Well, it was another hot and sweaty day in Texas! Today was field trip day for my son's class and we went to the Pumpkin Farm. We did a hayride, picked a pumpkin, carved a pumpkin, pulled a plow to show how pumpkin seeds are planted and ate lunch. WHEW! It was a busy day and now I'm tired ;).

But alas, I'm off to work on my wooden nativity sets that I hope to have finished and sold way before Christmas. A mother's work is never done. LOL

Oh, and check out one of my latest listings in my etsy shop. It's called Winter Chill and is listed for only $12.00. There's also a matching pair of earrings!

Making Jewelry!

I have been working every available second this week trying to make some gorgeous new jewelry pieces and painting my Mary's for my handpainted Nativity sets that I will be selling later on. I have been working on my Nativity sets for a few weeks now and boy, am I ready to finish them so I can move on to something else! Each piece of the set is cut from 3/4 inch pine and handpainted and they are very cute nativities. I have finished the Josephs, the cow/sheep, and now the Marys. I'm going to go sand the angels right now! I can see the finish line - yeah!!! All I will have left is the baby Jesus!

I have a big craft show coming up in October and after that, I will be listing my sweet nativity sets - I promise to post a picture on my blog for all the blog readers to see!

It's Monday!

Fall is in the air! Here in Texas, we had a very short summer because it rained soooooo much in June and July. The rain kept the temperature down, so we only had 1 month of really hot weather. Of course, it's still pretty hot, but not over 100 like it usually is at this time.
So therefore, all this cool weather (85-90 degrees!), is making me anticipate fall.

I've listing a really cute handpainted sign in my etsy shop - check it out! It says - Watch for Falling Leaves. Very cute for the front door or to hang anywhere!

I also have some adorable handpainted Fall/Halloween decor for sale right now on eBay.
Just check out my ebay ID: soapymom2006 for the pumpking fence and frog fence!

Friday, September 7, 2007

Christmas - Here already??

Well, no, it's not quite Christmas but maybe it's time to start thinking about it! After all, the stores are already full of Christmas trees and decorations so it can't be that far away. Of course, it was July when they put that stuff out so maybe their alittle screwed up about when the Christmas season really starts. LOL!

So, in preparation, I have listed some adorable Christmas jewelry for your little princesses!

Check out my Candy Cane Bear Boutique Girls Bracelet for only
$12.50! It's adorable and sooooo sparkly. Very festive for the Christmas season!
Or check out the matching necklace for only $19.99. What a beautiful addition to your little girls Christmas outfits!
And of course, there's always something for mom - for Fall, Christmas or any time of the year!

Not enough time in the day!

Do you ever feel like there just aren't enough hours in a day? I think I need about 34 hours. Or maybe I could just stop sleeping. LOL However, the problem with not sleeping is that everyone else in the house IS sleeping - so you can't make any noise if you do get up and that's just toooo hard.
Well, I'd better get back to work - maybe that's it - I just need to work faster! LOL

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

First day of school:(.

Well, today was the first day of school. It almost kills me every year. I wonder, does it ever get any easier?? Even my sons teacher was melancholy about her own kids starting back.
He had a great day though, and that's what's important.
No one ever told me motherhood would be so heartbreaking and so uplifting at the same time. Like when he got into the car at the end of the day and asked if I missed him. I said I did and he said he missed me too (and his dog). LOL. I hope I rated slightly higher than the dog but I'm not sure. LOL.

Computer dilemma is solved!

Good news! I got a new computer - ahh smell the new computer smell!! LOL.

It will take some getting use to though - you know that saying about teaching an old dog new tricks. Well, it takes me awhile to get use to new things especially since all the keys are in different places and they made the tab key smaller. Why would they do that??

But enough about my computer woes!!
One of my ebay groups - Beads, Beads, and More Beads (BBMB) is having an Autumn Garden Jewelry design challenge.
So I have created "Orange Mums and Pumpkins", a custom boutique bracelet and it is currently listed on ebay.
to go to my ebay listing.
The lampwork beads I used to create this piece are gorgeous, the oranges and yellows really pop! So keep your fingers crossed that I'll win the challenge!!

Monday, August 13, 2007

Computer crash!!!

The most horrible thing has happened! The laptop which I love and which my wonderful husband bought me for Christmas has crashed. I am heartbroken. Oh well, the world is still spinning so it must not be the end. LOL. And it happened to crash just when I was listing a very cute pumpkin bear girls bracelet. But never fear, I will borrow my son's computer and still be able to list my beautiful jewelry. LOL.
Thanks for reading my blog~ I hope you find something in my shop that interests you. Please post comments as I would love to read them.

It's time to get ready for BACK TO SCHOOL!

It's that time of year again for everyone! Rushing around buying school supplies, trying to find new clothes that fit. My how they have all grown since last year! I think my son grew 2 inches this summer!

I, of course, have been busy making beautiful new jewelry pieces that would compliment any new fall outfit. This bracelet would be great for your Senior! These fun, funky, bumpy beads have every color in the rainbow so they are sure to go with every outfit and match your school colors!

I call this bracelet "Unbreak my Heart". The colors are spectacular - green, orange, and yellow. It's sparkly, fun and looks great on your wrist.

These Fall colors are hot. Topaz and red. The small red and light colored beads are light siam and gold shadow colored Swarovski crystals and boy do they help this bracelet sparkle.

Thanks for looking and I hope your check out my shop! I would love to hear from you! Please leave your comments!
