No, it's not as interesting as it sounds. I was up late working on my newsletter. I have a tendency to stay up late after the kids are in bed so that I can work without distractions. So last night I remember getting up from my desk at about 11pm with the intention of going to bed. I was yawning and dozing off in front of the computer, after all. But I went back to the desk to proof read what I had just worked on and next thing I knew it was going on 1am. "Just one more edit", I told myself and 2 hours later I was in bed asleep. Half of what I had worked on last night I changed this morning. Figures. I should have called it a night at 11. I did get the newsletter finished and I'm pretty happy with it. Now I need to print out address labels and get them in the mail Monday. I also finished off a new Chakra Balancing Bracelet that was ordered last week. I need to work on the coordinating anklet and get that in the mail. I finished Teresa's two-tone anklet today as well. I'd love to keep it for myself!! And I designed a proposal for a custom cancer awareness bracelet made out of gemstones. I actually accomplished a lot today regardless of the fact that 3 of the 4 kids were home with me. Thankfully my older 2 help occupy the little ones when I'm trying to work. Well, I'm off to make dinner...not sure what I'm making yet but I guess I'll figure it out when I stick my head in the freezer. Have a good weekend! ~Heather

I finished the custom necklace last night after attending Miss Zoe's preschool graduation. Zoe is 5, very rambunctious and thankfully going to full day kindergarten in the fall. Graduation was very nice. All the children had caps and gowns and they sang songs and then the teachers gave each child an award that is specific to that child. Zoe received the "most athletic" award. Needless to say, Daddy was very proud.
So, back to the necklace. My client returned this afternoon to pick up the necklace. She is wearing it to prom tomorrow night and she looks great in it. She was so happy with it, she said it was "bangin!"

Not that everyday isn't busy. There's usually a multitude of activities on the calendar between all of the kids' activities and the business. Today is a busy day because I ended up changing my plans when I received a phone call last night that a new customer would like a custom design to be completed by Friday. Of course, I'm thrilled...new customers make me happy (actually all customers make me happy)! She is coming to the office/studio that is in my home to discuss the particulars of the piece. With 4 kids, hubby and a dog in the mix, I'm thinking the house needs to be tidied up --by 3pm today. No small task. Hubby is off today (thank god) so he'll keep the little ones occupied. And on that note...I must go spruce up the place. One of these days I'll have my own boutique.
