Ahhh, Jasmine!

Hi out there!

It's been awhile since my last blog, not much has been going on..
I have just been getting my yard together and getting some flower beds dug...
Before... there was a big Rubarb plant in the corner..


This is my Lilac bush, not yet in the ground. It had 2 really nice blooms and my puppy ate them! ugg, she eats EVERYTHING!!!!

nice little fencing to keep the dogs out!

My beautiful Jasmine, my favorite, this plant has such an intoxicating scent!!

In other news, I finally had a sale.. a cute necklace. I hear some of the blogs I follow talk about how slow there shops are when they haven't sold anything in a week.. my sales are few and far between... but I have only had my shop open since Jan of this yr.. I figure if I just plug away at it eventually I will start to get more sales... So this lovely gal said that if she likes my necklace as much as she thinks she will, she will be back to purchase a pr of earrings she has been eyeing.. I'm sure she will like the necklace, I try to be as accurate as possible with my listings and photos..

Sometimes it is hard to be creative when I'm not selling any thing, and I know I'm not a failure but I have those thoughts of self doubt... you know.. "what if my stuff is no good" "what if no one likes it" those nasty little thoughts that creep into your mind.
But I am trying to get better about my self doubts and just know that what I put out there is good quality workmanship. I'm a bit of a perfectionist also and that tends to bite me most of the time.

chow for now!!


  1. Ahh, self-doubt is a nasty thing. Have some friends over, show them your work for some real live feedback - I'm sure it will be all be good and it will be a self doubt destroyer! Your work is beautiful! Hang in there :)
