Jewels of the Sea

Thank you so much for the sweet birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day with my girls including lunch, shopping, and a trip to Chuck E Cheese's (that's what happens when you let a 5 year old be the event planner:). We had a great time though! My sweetie had to work a realllly long day, but I let him off the hook since he snuck out for an hour to bring me one of these. Yummmm.

I stretched the birthday festivities all week. Lunch with my best friend, a day trip to visit my sister, dinner at my parents. I'm officially having a "birthweek" from now on... one day just isn't long enough to get everything in!

Also be sure to stop by and send some birthday wishes to my friends Beth and Mel.
They're July babies too!

In other news, the Jewels of the Sea Swap that I'm hosting is wrapping up. You can see some of the fabulous pendants that the players created here. Really gorgeous stuff!

These are the ones that I made. I finally put to use some of the vintage components that I've been hoarding! These were made with a vintage chandelier crystal, pearls, and glass beads. I really love the colors... it's actually the same palette of colors found throughout my house. Lots of shades of whites with some aqua, light green, and a touch of pink.

I guess that's all for now... time to get back to packing orders. I have several boxes (and random piles) of goodies to add to the shop as well. I've been promising them to you for a while now, haven't I? Soon, I promise. For real, this time! :)

Have a great weekend!!!
