Call Me Maybe!

18 California Nights You know, I love California! :o) I’ve always been a California Dreamin’ girl in my heart! Yes, I wonder often why it is that I live in Illinois…my whole entire life I’ve lived here! I have visited California a couple of times and oh, I do love that state. I can’t imagine what life is without mittens, scarves and boots in the middle of January! I can’t imagine not spending 2 hours getting home from work on snow days! I can’t imagine not living in plant zone 5 where my beautiful plants droop and sleep for the winter time! I can’t imagine being able to get into the car and drive to the oceanside for an afternoon! I can’t imagine what it would be like to go and pick a lemon off a tree in my background! All things that one time in my life I wish I could experience. Yes, I am a California girl wanna be! 

01 California Dreamin’ 2 And, maybe this is why I relate to California girls so well! Yes, the last 19 of my 26 sales have been from California! So, I guess that kinda proves that California loves me back! :o) Take a peek at just a few purchases from my California girlfriends!

Oceanside – Apatite Gemstone Bracelet

Intuition Necklace – 32″ Long Kingman Turquoise and Mixed Metals Necklace

Body and Soul Chakra Necklace

Harmony – Kingman Turquoise with Lotus Charm

I have the best customers. And often, I email them with special customer appreciation sales, good for just  my customers, who I can now call my friends! I do love that too! See, it’s not unusual for my customers to jot me a note, a convo, or an email, and oh boy do I love that! It’s so nice when people take the time to just write something nice to me! It’s certainly makes all my effort worth while! And, checkout the feedback these girlfriends write in my shop! WOW! So, along with the excitement my customers share with me, well, I’m happy to say, me and the big guy talk about jewelry and gemstones just as much, I’m sure every day! Right now I am awaiting 4 slabs of Turquoise that the big buy is going to make some cabochons for me to make into jewerly! I must say, from the minute I get up, my mind is whirling with jewelry thoughts! And, now, I’ve been buying gemstones that are the colors of my flowers in bloom! Nature does inspire me so much!

I do wish I had even more time for jewelry making! I wish I could afford to make the career move to do this full time, unfortunately that’s not something that I could do!  But, that makes me love my jewelry making time even more! I do know that this will be my choice when I do retire from the 9-5 world! How fun would that be….gemshow shopping trips with the big guy, jewelry making into the night (ahhh, late night is my favorite time to create!)

So, be a part of the excitement and fun and be my customer too!  Here’s a little coupon special going on for this weekend only WEEKEND10 for 10% off anything in my shop this weekend only. Enter coupon code WEEKEND10 for 10% off your purchase.

How fun to have people love my creations as much as me! So feel free at any time to email or convo me! Or Hey!….Call Me Maybe :o) enjoy this song! 01 Call Me Maybe

One Lucky G-ma!

Jaden the Rock Star!

07 You Baby click to listen to this sweet song!

ring ring….as I answered the phone this afternoon at work. “Grandma, can I come over tonight!”

I rushed home tonight to greet our little sweetie! Oh, not here yet….good, I had a little time to let Savannah out and get his bagels and cream cheese away….just in case! Grandma always has to be prepared!

Gems and Stones for Grandmas Jewelry

So, I just started up my computer to get some labels and things printed to happily ship my Etsy orders, when I hear Jaden upstairs! “GRANDMA! running down the stairs! “I have something for you!” So, he comes running in with a Ziploc bag full of  “Gems” for me to make jewelry! (Talk about my heart just melting!) So I open the bag and dump the rocks out on my desk. The super smooth white ones, I found….Kyle, my friend found this one….little Jayden found this one! “I like all the white ones” , I said. “I found all those white ones Grandma!”

These are the things that make parenting the best thing ever! How cool is it when a little one not only thinks of you all on his own, but then has him and his friends go digging for “Gems & Stones” for his grandma to make jewelry! I would have loved to have been there to witness this! Imagine all these little guys running in the house to Mom! Muddy hands open, “Mom, we were digging for “Gems and Stones for Grandma for her to make jewelry! Real gems! She can sell ’em on Etsy! They’re so HUGE, she’ll probably be rich!”

Jaden's Shop

Did I ever tell you how much Jaden loves Etsy, yep, he does! Every year he grows up so much! But, I remember when he would sit on my lap and we would browse Etsy! It inspired Jaden so much! In fact, I had an Open House at our home for my jewelry. Jaden was SO excited. So, I get a phone call the night before my Open House….”Grandma….could I have my own table to sell the ornaments that I am making?”  Well I was so excited, “Yes, of course you could!” He was such a little salesmen! He did great! I think every person that came would have bought one…but he sold out before everyone could get one of their own!
