I Survived Thanksgiving

Happy Belated Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you all had a glorious holiday. I know for me the holidays are always way crazy. I have so many dinners to attend that it is hard to get them all packed into one day. But I was thinking about this and complaining about being so busy running from house to house when it dawned on me that I should stop. I realized how truly blessed I am. I am fortunate enough to have a family that loves one another and wants to spend time with one another.

So I quit my whining and I gave thanks this year for being so busy. For having the opportunity to spend another Thanksgiving with my parents, brothers, nieces, my precious grandmother, and friends. Three of my four grandparents are not with us this holiday season and I miss them terribly. I wonder many times did I let them know just how much they meant to me when they were here. So the moral to this story is: slow down, breathe, look around you and see the people that you have in your life. Take the time to enjoy their company and make sure before you depart to go back home, to your everyday routine, that you tell them just how much you love them.

I am frantically trying to get inventory built up for a show next weekend. Thus I have let my blogging slide. I just wanted to thank those of you who take the time to check in on my site from time to time. Hopefully after this show I will be able to get more involved with my stay tuned. Thanks again

Complete Creative Block

Well I am in a complete creative block. I just can't seem to get inspired. UUUgggghhh! It has been 9 days since I made anything new. What is going on? I think it this time of year. I really have mood issues during the fall. I have had so many personal tragedies happen to me during the fall of the year. It brings back a lot of painful memories and associations. You know, it might be SADD too (seasonal affective disorder). Maybe I just need a sunlamp?! Oh well, anyhoo I am going to go sit down at my work table now and pray that my creative muse will return. Keep your fingers crossed. :(

Hi all

I Have No Idea What I'm Doing

Okay this is my very first post on my brand new blog. In case you are wondering what took me so long to get here to blogger land well refer to title. I will submit the aforementioned "title" as exhibit one for my argument. I have heard really great things about blogging so I am here to give it a go. I really can't imagine that I have anything to say that anyone would be interested in reading but I guess I'll find out huh? So anyone that's interested go ahead and buckle up cause this is probably going to be a bumpy ride. Just bear with me and remember I am just learning to "drive" this blog machine.

Hi I'm Heather.

I'm glad you took a minute to check out my blog. Here is a little info about me. I am a native of North Carolina, a born and bred mountain girl. I love animals especially my little puppy EJ.

I love spending time with my family and my nieces. I am a non-practicing Registered Nurse. I enjoy crafting of all sorts and diy projects. My most recent love is making jewelry. I have recently opened an etsy shop and I'm gonna see if others like my work.

I am a self taught jewelry artist. I think being self taught is an advantage because it allows you to be more liberal in your designs and techniques. You can ignore all the rules when you don't really know them. I really enjoy making beautiful, well crafted, affordable jewelry. I use high quality materials and love the look of sterling silver and natural stones. I believe everyone needs to feel beautiful and I hope that my jewelry can bring a little beauty into others lives. So check out my esty shop as well.
By the way Etsy is an awesome venue for artists and crafters of all kinds. Some of the talent that you will find there is just amazing. There are somewhere in the range of 700,00 jewelry items available also in all styles and price ranges; so if you don't find something you like in my shop check out some of the other artisans and buy handmade. There is a certain uniqueness and character about hand made items that you just can't get from mass production so help us spread the word and support the Handmade movement.

Have a great day! God Bless
