NEW Look

I'm super excited about the new, custom-made graphics for my shop! You must visit Renee, at ThompsonDesigns. Her work is beautiful, and I think she came up with a great banner for my shop.
Tell me what you think!

(Below is my new business card design)

Also, I got some new birdies in for my Mystic Flight Necklace.
They are GORGEOUS! They have even more blue in them - so cute!

Life on the Farm

My Life's Just a Merry-Go-Round Necklace was featured in this great, country-inspired treasury by the seller akkricket. Check out her lovely shop full of sea glass jewelry! Thanks, girl!

What Do You Think? + Blogger Tip

I've given my blog and my shop a little makeover today. Let me know what you think!
And now for a BLOGGER TIP!
Want to remove the NavBar from the top of your blog?
Maybe it clashes with your pretty layout?

Follow these simple steps...

1 Make sure you're logged in to blogger

2 Go to your dashboard and select layout

3 Under the tabs (posting, settings, layout, view blog) you will see the option to edit HTML

4 Now all you do is paste the following code into the appropriate portion of your blog's HTML
(Pictured below)

5 The code inside the yellow box is what you want to insert.
Be sure to add it right above variable definitions.
#navbar-iframe {
display: none !important;

6 Now save template and voila! If you ever want to undo this, simply remove the code.

(The only drawback to this is that you must go to blogger to access your dashboard instead of simply clicking on dashboard from the NavBar. But, I think it makes your blog look much cleaner and professional.)

Treasury Feature

My Fantasque Earrings have been featured in
a BEAUTIFUL treasury!
I love each and every piece
Lindsay, of Southern Girl Florals chose.

until it expires at 8am Thursday (3/16).

Always a light in our hearts...

My Sunshine grew wings and became an angel
three years ago, today.
He is missed more than ever.
We love you, Aydan!

You are my Sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You'll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my Sunshine away.

Me and Aydan (2-3 weeks old) in 2006
