My new fall line includes lots of copper, deep reds, and lush purples. This necklace is just one of many.

Holiday Gift Ideas

I love giving gift sets for the holidays. Whether the gift set includes, bath and body products or yummy treats; I think gift sets make the holidays fun and easy.

So for this holiday season I plan to have a line of gift sets. Each set will include necklace and earrings and will be packaged in a fabulous and reusable box designed by another Etsy seller.
More details to come....

I'm Starting To Stress Out

I am going back to work next week after being home with my little guy for 16 months. I know he will love the daycare he is going to. I am however, worried about how on Earth I will be able to keep up with my Etsy shop, blog, website, ahhhhhhhhhhhh! I vow to somehow keep up with all of this. Any tips would be really appreciated =)

The picture above is f the newest item in my shop. I call it Russian Tea because the colors alone make me feel really warm.
