hey guys!

So, who doesn't love free stuff??? They seem far and few between these days...
I am taking part in a fabulous giveaway this week! Check it out and enter - just maybe you'll win a pair of my opalite water drop earrings from my jenuinejewels Etsy shop!

Here's the info on the giveaway...
A super kind soul, Kristina runs this darling website and contacted me a little while ago about taking part in one of her fabulous giveaways, so naturally I jumped at the chance! She, like myself, is attracted to all things sparkly and pretty! LOL! She writes about all kinds of neat stuff and always has something fun going on at her site. Not to mention, she's just a seriously nice person! You can check out all of the details here at

the Opalite Water Drop Earrings Giveaway. So check out her cool website and while you're there be sure and enter to win my earrings!!! You never know...this could be your lucky week!

In the mean time, I've been busy again down in my workshop. I was lucky enough to have my family in town this weekend for a visit and my sister and I had a blast making some jewelry together. It was such a treat for me, as I'm usually working alone. We just laughed and had so much fun! She even indulged me with a trip to one of my favorite local bead shops where we found so many new jems! I have SO much work to do - these beads are amazing!
Hope my creative juices will flow this week!

I did get a few jewels made between all of the fun! I have several new items to list this week so be sure to check in the shop in the next days!

Here's a sneak peek at a few! I love these jasper stones!

Thanks so much for checking in. Hope you all have a great week and are smiling!

Well, Happy late New Year to all! I promised myself I would not let an almost month go by without checking in here! One resolution wrecked already! And I say resolution VERY loosely - I made that *resolution* (not to make anymore resolutions) - years ago! LOL! I do love coming here and letting it all go though. It is so good for me. I'm sure some of you can relate...Life just throws stuff at us each day, some good and some not so much and for me that always translates into working it out. Whether it's here, within myself, with family or friends, or through my art. Sometimes I wonder if that's why I love creating so much. Maybe it's just my way. Of working it all out. Life. So another year is here and so we all go into our own way.
More later...
Hope you are all well. More than well. I hope you are all smiling!
