New Creations for this week.....

Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Handmade Wire Wrapped Necklace
Dark Star - Handmade Necklace.  The star portion is up-cycled from a vintage clip on earring.

My Necklaces are named from song titles.  Can you name the bands?

What the New G4 iphone can do for you, even if you don't buy one!

Studio Jardine I will share a marketing idea with you. While waiting for my husband for lunch in 104 degree heat I decided to pop into an air conditioned apple store. While there I messed with every G4 iphone I could, brought up in safari the front page of my Etsy store and left it there. So anyone who picked up the phone next and opened safari got to see my stuff first. One way to leave a calling card!

My new thrift store find!

It may look like a bit of a tight spot but, it works great for me.  Especially now that I have been able to switch out a folding plastic table for a vintage wooden desk....and now I have drawers!  There is even a nice, stable pull out for when I need more table space.  I really scored on this after looking for months.  Thanks to our local Humane Society Thrift Store in Sonora, California.

An earring tutorial

The link to this tutorial will take you to an Etsy Shop - BobbiThisAndThat..... I searched for a long time for some nice floral beads to use in items like this one and I ended up getting all of my floral shaped beads from her store.  She is really great to work with.

ONE DAY A YEAR! Wicked Arum Flower Blooms!

And today is the day.  This Arum puts off a strong smell of rotten flesh from 2-4 hours and attracts many bees and flies...... as well as my dog Odinn.

So happy with my booth banner from vistaprint!

I am really happy how my sign turned out!  Here are photo's of my sign work up and the actual sign that I got moments ago!!
I created the banner in Photoshop and easily uploaded to vistaprint.  The actual sign matches closer in color and saturation than what my photo shows.

Dust and Repair for Farmer's Market's

Getting ready for my first Farmer's Markets of the Season.  I won't be able to make them this week since it is the last week of school for my son Klavey, who graduates this Friday!  Next Wednesday June 9th I will be at the Tuolumne Village Market from 4pm to dusk and on Friday June 11th I will be at the Twain Harte Farmer's Market from 4-6:30pm.
