Growing up!

So, today my son had a field trip to L.C. (lewis and clark high school) which is where he will be going next yr.. WOW a freshman! Where has the time gone? I can't think about it to much or I might cry.

I got my new Jewelry workshop book today..... Super excited. I just skimmed through it but it looks like just what I was looking for..

In the process of making my sis a beautiful pr of earrings and necklace for her BIG 40 birthday she has on the 13th... I hope she likes them, I will post a pic as soon as I'm done she won't see them, she is computer handicapped..... I'm waiting on some chain from and should be here fri or sat.. I have my design all sketched out and ready to be put together with love and care just for her....

The weather is FINALLY warming up and the snow is just about gone, I'm really looking forward to a warm and sunny summer!!

first time blogger

Well... here I am blogging.... not quite sure what to say or what not to say...

I am sick of snow and want it to be 90 degrees!! can't wait for sunshine!!
I am having a go with my new business venture Fashionably Adorned.
I love to make pretty things and started messing around with making jewelry a couple of yrs ago and started to become more serious about it here within the past couple months. So now I have a small shop (so far) on etsy and am really enjoying myself...
