I am so excited. I just opened another shop called Helen's Light Readings. I do tarot readings and have done them for many years. I got this idea from someone who bought one of my watches. She is in an online tarot group. I had been thinking about doing something like this but just hadn't done it. She was the catalyst that pushed me over the edge. She has a shop too. I don't know how I will do cause there is some competition. I am putting in quite a few spreads so people can choose and there will be a wide range of prices so people can choose how many cards they want and how much they want to spend. You can find my shop here . It's on Etsy. Each listing explains what you get. So go take a look!

Look at this Treasury and this Curator

My watch was placed in this treasury which I am always grateful. And this curator is a very talented artist in my humble opinion. He goes by Serdomania and you can find his shop here His art is breathtaking and dramatic. Even his treasury has a earthy and sensual feel to it. Go ahead, look at the treasury and his shop. Enjoy!

I made a treasury!

Yes you read that right! I made my first treasury called Passionate Purples and Blues. I took the shops for Handmade Harbor, a team that I am on. This team is great cause we try and promote each other. You can find my treasury Here . I got a lot of positive feedback but the ones that really count are from you all. The people that are not in it. If you can promote it that would be great. I am only the curator. None of my work is in it but being the curator is still a very good thing. I hope you go and look at it and enjoy it and facebook about it and tweet it and blog it and do whatever about it. lol Thanks!

BTW, I never would have been able to do a treasury without the help of Shelly who is very talented at doing them. Thank you, Shelly.

Handmade Harbor Team Treasury

I'm on an Etsy team called Handmade Habor and we promote each other. And Shelly put one of my watches in one of her treasuries. She has a cute shop where she sells all kinds of things included cool knitted scarves. I LOVE scarves and have lots of them and I am always open to buy more. lol

The treasury can be found here. It is filled with blues and is quite beautiful. As you all know I love blues and purples. My kyanite watch is perfect in the treasury. I hope you all go and look at it and check out the items. There are some interesting things in it. If you're reading this Shelly, thanks for including me. :-)

Not Sleeping Tonight

Okay, so I know you all are wondering why I am up so early in the morning posting on my blog. Well it is all because of this darling black and white dog you see before you. He answers to the name of Chopper. The other dear one is Bailey.

You see, hubby and I and Chopper and Bailey and Max the cat (yes, he's the one that looks like he owns the place) all were in bed. Chopper had his in between us place with his head down and his butt close to my face. Yes, I was praying that he would not get gassy. Aren't you amazed that I can read your mind? Bailey was further down on my side being gentle harassed by Max because Max wanted Bailey's attention and the attention I was giving to him was JUST NOT DOING IT. Bailey finally schooched over some and that made Max leave him alone.

Now we were already to fall asleep. Did I ever tell you the Chopper sleeps VERY LOUD? I mean don't get me wrong I love him to pieces and I kiss his big nose every chance I get. But that nose snores! So tonight, he was just breathing loud but I was being OVERLY sensitive and decided I would get up and check on some Etsy and gmail stuff. And come back to bed and the worst would be done... ... ... ... I was WRONG. I came back and he was DREAMING and his body was jerking and his legs (which were by my head) were kicking. Finally, I said to my husband, "Honey,(yes I said honey)can you take the dogs out so we can get Chopper on your other side?" Of course he said yes. I think he saw the beginnings of insanity starting to form.

So they all come back...Chopper is on the right of hubby. Sweet and quiet Bailey is in the low middle of us. And we are ready to go to sleep. Now guess what? I CAN'T SLEEP!!! I have been a bit manic lately, I think, and this set me off for not being able to sleep tonight.

I thought that maybe my readers might find some humor in my ramblings. Hope you enjoyed my experience with a small bout of mania. This won't last long or maybe it will. One never knows. Perhaps I'll make some more watches or earrings. My shop has plenty but could always you a few more.

Comments, suggestions, anything is welcome in my comment section

I am featuring for Etsy Bloggers an artist that works in the field of jewelry. I love her work and I have just discovered it! I love this brass heart with the blue crystals. The chain is wonderful too. You can tell in the rest of her work that she takes time and effort in what she does. You can tell she puts her heart into her work. I can tell she loves what she does. Her shop

You can read her blog at: Her blog is springy and fun.
