So! It’s been a good long while since I’ve posted here, I’m such a
bad blogger! I’m going to try to be better in the coming months though!
So for the past year and half (give or take a month or two) Michael
and I have been renting a foreclosure condo from the association. For a
year the association was collecting their back fees from our rent until
May when the bank moved to finalize the foreclosure. And WHAT A MESS! If
you’ve never been through a foreclosure process it’s craziness! And
this wasn’t even OUR foreclosure! It’s like no one talks to anyone else
involved. The attorneys would contact us and n... » Read More
As part of my work on my crafting studio, I decided
to part take in a fun little DIY project: create a fun crafting bookcase to
house all my goodies. :)
Slowly but surely, my new studio is coming together. I've been trying to create
my crafting space under a pretty tight budget. Michael and I don't exactly have

To kick off 2012, I've decided to work on setting up my beading studio the way I want it!

One of the hardest things to do as a shopper is decide in the moment if a piece will fit you before you buy it, especially when you can’t try the piece on first!For Necklaces this doesn’t possess too much of a challenge, for the most part. Necklaces, as a general rule should be 16 inches or longer, and usually have a chain extension on them unless they have a toggle closure. But for most designers, changing the size of a necklace is very easily done for a client upon request.But often with bracelets there is a lot of intricate bead work that has gone into the design that does not allow for a designer to simply make a quick adjustment to the le... » Read More
