Recently I was fortunate enough to be asked to make jewelry for a very dear friend’s wedding.  I had the most amazing time designing and then creating it.

Her wedding was this past Saturday, 10/23/10 and I wanted to share some pictures of what I made.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isn’t it all gorgeous???

I am really proud of the work I did and just couldn’t wait to share it with you all.

I have a couple craft shows coming up at the end of November and early December that I have been working hard on getting all my products ready. Which is why I’ve been absent for so long, I hope to be around more and keep you updated of the great things to come in my shop!

Waiting for the SPARK

For the past couple of weeks my day job has been really rough.  I come home from work exhausted and don’t want to even think about doing anything other than putting my comfy clothes on, this includes warm slippers, and sitting on the couch for a long night of internet and TV.

I’ve been thinking a lot about why I have zero energy because even though the work days are tough I shouldn’t be THAT tired and I realized that I have been doing no real physical activity and eating awful.  I decided in order to find the spunk to get myself back into my design (Christmas is coming!) I need to get my butt off the couch and get moving.  Not to mention I’m engaged and need to get myself into wedding day shape!

So for the past week I’ve been trying to walk and today when I went out for my walk, I decreased my min/mile speed by 30 seconds.  I’m not speedy, I’m still walking at about 18.5 min miles but to drop my time after being so stagnant, felt pretty darn good!  I just had to brag a little.

I’m sitting here just itching to go back to my beads, so really….   Why AM I sitting here and not making jewelry!?!?

SEE YAH!

Engaged!

So I’ve been missing…

I sometimes have a habit of going missing for no really good reason, however that is NOT the case this time.  Last Wednesday, my boyfriend of 3 yrs asked me to marry him.  And I said yes!  The last few days have been filled with bookstores (for bridal magazines), bridal shows, sharing with family, creating wedding websites and starting the planning process.

I am so beyond deliriously happy.  He’s the love of my life and he’s made my dreams come true!

Myself and my (now) fiance!

That picture was taken at my sister’s wedding which was back in August.  Now a month later, it is my turn to plan a wedding and this excites me to no end!

Here’s the ring he proposed with:

Gorgeous Engagement Ring!

I absolutely love and have yet to stop staring at it.  It puts a smile on my face constantly!

We’ve set a tentative date of October 15th, 2011 and our colors will be burnt orange and brick red.  We don’t have a venue yet but we’re working on it!

Well I’m off to have lovely sweet dreams of my love!

Facebook Fan Page

So finally after being in business for almost 2 yrs I created a Facebook fanpage!  (Sound the trumpets)

Jewelry by Jillian <— (go ahead and click on the link, it will take you directly to my fan page)

I had been trying to decide if I wanted one or not because I was getting quite a bit of business by just posting new listings on my own personal Facebook page.  But after having it created for only about 3 days, I can see the value in having a fan page.   I’m currently up to 58 fans and I hope that number continues to grow.  I’m honored that people find my items nice, pretty, fancy enough to buy and wear.

I’m slowly but surely adding pictures of all the items in my shop, plus I plan on continuing to add to it as I add new items to my shop.

Right now I’ve been pretty busy with getting my wholesale order ready as well as a few different regular orders from Etsy.  I also will be starting on some wedding jewelry for a friend soon so lots of new items will be coming but slowly!

Here’s a little peak into my crazy world of supplies.  Underneath all those pieces is the table I work on…someday I’ll see it again.  😀

Till next time — happy beading!
