My New Etsy Shop

I've decided to open a second shop on Etsy. It is for vintage jewelry that I decided not to take apart for re-use. The shop is called Vintage Desiderata. Besides vintage jewelry, there will be other vintage treasures listed soon. I've been working hard to stock the new shop, and have had 3 sales already! I haven't forgotten my original shop. MsAnomaly is becoming the Etsy shop for just my handmade, upcycled vintage jewelry. I still have vintage listed there, but as the items expire, I will re-list them in Vintage Desiderata. Hopefully, I can add a scrolling sidebar here, for my new vintage shop. Trying to get as much done on Etsy before the weather warms up here. Have had my fill of NE Ohio winter. My flower beds are calling. ASAP, I will succumb to their siren song!

Time to Catch Up!

Wow, obviously I've been away from my blog for a while...a long while! A lot has happened, some good, some not good. My Mom passed away in August 2011, and it took 3 months to get her house cleaned out and get my Dad into full time care. He has Alzheimer's. Also lots of trips to the lawyer who is probating my parents' estate. I stepped down as Captain of the Etsy Beagles Team, but luckily, another team member has taken over. I still update the Beagles blog (link on sidebar). Then, it was Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's....Whew! Well, it's Leap Day today, so I'm leaping into the blogging again! I've listed some new things in my Etsy shop; mostly vintage. I have some new necklaces that I made, but no photos yet, except for the one named "Vicious," that is listed in my Etsy shop. I have serious "cabin fever" now, even though our Ohio winter was not bad at all; can't wait to get out in my garden again! I hope everyone's 2012 has been and continues to be a good year!

Yes, I'm blogging

Unbelievable, but true, I'm actually blogging. Of course, it's about my beagle, Flash, wearing his new "Rock Star" dog collar. Since my eldest son's in a band, it's too perfect; has little electric guitars and the words "Rock Star" all the way around it. I got it from Etsy shop and Beagles team member Cody's Creations. Flash believes he is a big celeb now!

On May 7th, I'll be rockin' a show at the Trumbull Art Guild. I love doing the art shows at TAG; there are so many fantastic artists there; not just jewelry artisans, like me, but all kinds of media! If you live in the Youngstown-Warren OH area, stop in and see for yourself. Great time to buy that special OOAK gift for Mom!
