Happy Halloween!

I love this time of year! I love the colors of Halloween and the aroma of all the candy! I'm sitting here waiting for all the little ones to come dressed in their costumes. It brings back such great memories of when I was little. The costumes certainly have changed! So far, I've managed to eat two fun size Snickers, a box of Milk Duds and a Kit Kat... that Tootsie Pop is looking pretty good too!

This past weekend, my husband and I made the annual trip to Dallas for a Halloween party. We always have such a great time dressing up and acting like complete idiots! This year was extra special as I met up with some old high school and college friends. It's amazing how we just pick up where we left off. That is the beauty of real friendships. I have known Susan since 6th grade. Yep, we were the nerds that ate brown bag lunches together. We laugh now, but we were pitiful!

Here are a few pre-party pics. It makes me laugh looking at them....

Thank you to those who expressed interest in my pieces. The show was a great success and my work was very well received. It is always hard to put your work out "there" for others to review and judge. It is one thing to make something for yourself, but to make something in hopes that others will like it is always a bit frightening.

For those of you that inquired about available pieces, these are the pieces I have left. If you would like more information, please send me an email and I would be happy to send you more information.

Where is Fall??

I know I live in Texas, but come on folks...a little cool weather wouldn't hurt! We have had a few cool mornings, but that's about it. The days are getting shorter, leaves are turning, but it is still hot! I long to wear a sweatshirt,curl up with a blanket and a good book. I'll give it one more week, and then I'm cranking the air conditioner down to 65!!

I've been busy, busy. Busy at work and busy at home. I'm getting ready for a trunk show next weekend. I'll be glad when it's over. I love the "groove" of getting ready, as I stay focused, and get alot accomplished. My head always swims with new ideas, but I have to stay focused until the show is over. What kind of show? A Jewelry Trunk Show held in conjunction with Clay Ole. I'll be participating with nine other metal artists. If you're near San Antonio next weekend, it will be held at the San Antonio Garden Center, 3310 N. New Braunfels @ Funston, from 10:00 - 4:00. It will be fun! I'll be posting some photos of available pieces on my jewelry blog in the next couple of days. Take a peek when you get the chance, but better yet, stop by my booth next weekend!
