Be part of the club !

This is something I started recently. The "Earrings of the Month" Club, a bit like a "Soap of the Month" thing =) I have a listing up for 6 months in my shop, and will add one for three months very soon. My hubby told me it was a "grand idea", but you know, he's my husband therefore his advice is not very objective =P Anybody willing to give me some feedback on that ?

And Again !

Dichroic Pendant Necklace, originally uploaded by brindegazon.

This necklace has been featured in this treasury by Catherine. It is a treasury list that features CASTTeam members, and I am honored to be part of it.

I have to get listing more tomorrow, so I just hope we have some sun to take neat pictures and be able to list some items. I don't really know what I am going to do in the winter, since natural sunlight happens to be the best for my pictures. If I take pictures indoors, photos end up orange-ish and ugly =/ Anybody knows a good (not too expensive) lamp to avoid this ? I already have a light tent so I know this helps a bit.

Also, reminder to all, my walking team for breast cancer has a Silent Auction going, and we will feature items donated by fellow artists and crafters. If you want to bid on unique items and support a great cause, click here and browse !

Might be back later tonight with more interesting stuff to say =)

Black and White Treasury, originally uploaded by brindegazon.

Sometimes you think you'll never make it into a treasury, and there's always somebody to remind you that you are absolutely wrong. I had a beautiful surprise yesterday, when I was back from work, I was part of Anastasia's black and white treasury. (You might want to check her shop by the way, she sells some neat stuff ! http://mattscraftywife.etsy.com )

The necklace featured is very special to me, as it is the first piece I made that was part of my Christian collection. It was the necklace that started it all, and since then, it has never stopped.

Of course, it takes me more time to put the pieces together and form a full collection, because this is a higher end product, and I really take my time to create pieces that have a meaning.

I think the treasury is still live, I don't know if it's Treasury West or regular Treasury, because I'm featured in treasuries in both, but go take a look, some great sellers are featured there with me !

When Inspiration Strikes !

I haven't done anything in a long time. No, it's not true. I made a lot of stuff recently, for my cocktail night coming up on November the 29th, but I haven't done anything to list on Etsy or on my own website.

Sooooo, after picking up my brownies from A Sugar Affair at the Post Office, I started looking at my stash to see what I could create. I was in the mood for grey. I don't know why, because I mostly like bright colors, but grey was my inspiration today. And I must admit that I am quite happy with the results.

I bought these borosilicate beads a long time ago and never found what to do with them. I have other colors as well, but I couldn't figure what to match this particular pair with.

This was the only thing I did today. I'm now waiting for my sister to arrive, because she's coming to spend the night with me ! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ! I can't wait, I miss her very much since I moved out. Here's a picture of my tiny little sister with a friend. I spent a part of the afternoon browsing through her trip pictures, and I must admit, I am jealous.

...So jealous, that I am planning a trip to Hawaii with her for the next year. She will also come with me to the UK during next summer. I plan on catching up on the traveling. (Although I won't find any kangaroos where we'll be going...)

Anyway, I have rice on the stove, and I don't want that stuck at the bottom of the saucepan...
