A New Year -  

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

It's been awhile since I've posted, but I am hoping to change this - I know, you hear it all the time! lol But really, not much has been happening -

I have been battling depression some, and it kept me from even getting in the shop. Every thing is better now though, and I've been working hard. I also started school this fall, and that has kept me very busy!

Anyway, over Christmas, one of the pieces I sold was broken upon delivery. Yes, I insured it! So FedEx I guess is doing their job, but it's just taking a long time. I finally got the piece back the other day and have done what I can to repair it for now, but the cold is preventing me from getting into the shop... ugh! The cold is also delaying my getting another piece done for a local buyer and that's not good!




Here is what I have been working on -









So, that's it for now - I will update as I can, and hope you keep checking in =)


As always,
Thanks for "stopping by the shop!"

To Russia, with love....  

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Unless you've been asleep, we've all watched the tragedy in Russia unfold. My heart goes out to those that lost their loved ones in these terrible assaults. Ever since Tyler went to Russia he's been trying to get back there. Wants to move there. I can't blame him sometimes when I think of how wonderfully he was treated by his host families and the warmth of those he met while about. I know we are all shocked and saddened by the ongoing violence.

I've received several emails lately about what's the latest with Deer Mountain. I've been fighting chronic pain in my back and legs and it's caused a great slow down in my production. To the point where I've only been able to produce a few earrings and such during this last six or so months. Well, finally, tomorrow is my surgery; they will be implanting a spinal cord stimulator to mask the nerve pain and while I'm excited, I'm very nervous(scared) also. I hope you'll all pray for me and my little family as we undergo this new chapter in our life! I've heard so many great things about the end result but am trying to be realistic too. I'm just hoping that I will regain some quality of life as the last 14 months have been miserable. I look forward to getting back in the shop - I miss creating so much!

Well, that's about it for now - time to get the little one up for school :)

I hope to write with good news in the next couple of days, please keep us in your prayers...

As many of you know, it's such a busy time for me! It has been for the last 3 months - I just haven't had a moment to myself - lol - but, I sure don't mind!!

Things are going fairly smoothly; right now I only have 3 ornaments and two boxes to get out so I'm doing great! Well, I also just started posting my 'non-custom' ornaments online - take a look!

We're all healthy and happy, so I've a lot to be thankful for this year =D

Backlinks Building, The way to Increase Pagerank and Boost Blog Traffic ~ HypER JaDuLZ - Help Bloggers to Get Blog Traffic and Increase Blog Traffic  

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Every once in a while I run into a blog about search engines, blog ranking, social networking, and other, often tech-heavy, information that I can actually digest and even though the language might be a barrier for some, it really is something that I consider minimal compared to the help this blogger gives in layman terms.

For my poor mind these days I need simple, easy to understand instruction and advice that is quick to the point and has timely content. This blogger gives that and the link below is just one small example of what the blog has to offer.
