I finally got the pictures of the jewlery for my niece's wedding onto the computer. The first picture is the jewelry for the Grandmother of the Bride.
This picture is for the Mother of the Bride.
This is the Flower Girl's (also daughter of the Bride)
This is for the Jr Bride.
This is what the Maid of Honor and Bride's Maids will be wearing.
And last but not least, this is the jewelry for the Bride. I hope the Bride and Groom like it.

Those of you who manage to find enough time to do the art, take and edit awsome pictures, and post every day are my heros. I try and try to get it all timed correctly to make this happen on my blog but I always seem to have too few hours in each day. Someday it could happen. I will keep trying til I get it all figured out. I have been working on the jewlery for my niece's wedding. I finished the last brides maids jewlery tonight. Tomorrow I will try to get some really good pictures and get them edited. If I have time, I will post them tomorrow night. If not it will happen over the weekend. Katrina has been bugging me for pictures since I told her I had her's done and the first brides maids, flower girl's and jr bride's done. I have been putting her off because I really want to be able to watch her face when she sees it for the first time. They are having a birthday party for her little girl next weekend and I plan to give it to her then. That way they will have it for final fitting of dresses for everyone.
I have also been working on my livingroom floor for the past two weeks. It took so long because I had to work around the furniture. I would work on a small section, wait for it to dry, move all the furniture, and work on another small section. I put the last coat of sealer on the small strip that I had to leave so that I could get into and out of my bedroom. I will take pictures of the new floor as soon as I get the furniture back to where it belongs.
Now I have to get to work on a birthday present to take to the party next weekend, my dress for the wedding, and the jewlery to go with it, along with my mom's, and both of my daughter's jewlery and dresses. I also need to finish the trim in the livingroom now that the floor is finished, and finish the drywall that was destroyed when the roof leaked in the kitchen and mudroom. This is all along with working on art to stock my new etsy shop, creating a new logo, figuring out the new website for registering businesses in Michigan and getting my EIN number. I am going to be a busy girl. Is there any way to suspend time so that I can get it all done? Just kidding. I know that I just have to keep plugging along. I got behind in the months that I couldn't do anything because of my shoulder. I am still limited in my physical activity and will be for a while longer, but it is improving every day.
For now I am going to try to get some sleep so that I can get in a full day tomorrow. I hope you all have had a great day and will have a wonderful night.
I keep trying to get this blogging thing down. I keep trying. I keep believing that it could happen. I think if I keep at it, it will happen. I will keep pushing myself til I get the timing thing figured out. Those of you who manage to post...with awsome pictures....every day, are my heros. I seem to always run out of hours in the days. I have time to work on the art, or take the pictures, or edit the pictures on photoshop, or post. I just haven't figured out how to get it all done in one day. Lately I have been working on the jewlery for my niece's wedding. I finished the last bride

I have been reading a new to me book for the past few days. It is 29 Gifts in 29 Days by Cami Walker. In the book, Cami is given a prescription to give a gift to someone each day for 29 days to help her deal with MS. Following the prescription for these 29 days changes her life. It doesn't cure her disease, but it does help her come to terms with the disease and learn to live with it. I logged onto the website for the challenge of giving a gift for 29 days. www.29gifts.org. I had already decided to take the challenge before logging on to the site. I started giving earlier today when I went to the Post Office here in town and gave a stained glass stepping stone to a former co-worker and friend. She had ordered one stone to give as a gift to her daughter and at the time of the order, she had mentioned that the one I had made for the same daughter several years ago for her wedding had broken and that her daughter was heart broken over it. I decided to make a replica of the same stone as a gift. I delivered the stones today. To my surprise, Sandy, my friend, ordered another stone as well as asking if I can make something for the steps they have that go down to the lake from the road. I hope to start this job before fall but I don't think it will be able to be installed before spring. Thank you Cami for writing your book about your experience. I plan to pass your book along to someone else to read and hopefully he/she will join the challenge. I hope you all will read her book and join the challenge. Think of how wonderful this world would be if we all put energy every day into giving a gift to someone else rather than dwelling on the bad things in life. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
