Thanks to all who stop by my little blog. Lots of changes. The first is that we have finally moved to our Dream location. We are in Northern NJ!!!!! We have a place and jobs all within 2 months!!!! We just made it happen, we didn't want to be victims held down by circumstance. I was getting very sick both physically and mentally so we had to do something to change. I have a really nervous stomach and I was throwing up everyday over stress and anxiety. I feel so good now and I will feel better when everything is done in the house. Our apartment is really cute it has a really nice big kitchen, green vintage stove and the bathroom is turquoise, one of my fav colors! The living room is a good size for what we want which is a large denim sofa, love seat, chair set we saw and loved. I think they were from the Cindy Crawford collection. Anyways, I am really happy in my new place, just that it needs TLC and cleaning lots of cleaning. Other than that, I have been just getting things together. I recently did well with some jewelry that I sold so I'm going to try to get more sales......... fingers crossed :) Being in Northern Jersey we see deers and bears lol I took a drive and got nauseous that's how curvy the roads are here. There are cutest antique shops here and my creative home designer juices are flowing. We are starting over and we feel happy. I will be creating more which is what I always wanted to fulfil my reason for being here, besides trying to be the best mom I could be.

My daughter is already 1!!!!! Time has flown by!!! Having a big party this weekend. My hubby is making all the grillin goods. He makes his own rib rub which is outrageous and I will be making rice and a lovely pasta salad. A few of my people are going to bring some foods like potatoes and chick pea salads and yummy stuff like that. Anyways we had some bad flooding in our basement and I was so tired from cleaning that I'm just going to relax and do things at my pace. Here is my angel laughing and saying OH! She loves saying OH and OOOHHH its really cute :) Anyways off to do some more!

SUSAN'S ART very much too, two different but awesome styles. Susan had some awesome metal heart charms and these super big and sparkly pendants one looked like something Einstein invented, that is cool.. I realized even my style was a unique when I decided to put Barbie accessories with Tourmaline and rhinestones for a flea market...... I sold them all so i guess people get it! i think people want jewelry that is one of a kind more so than ever. Some of the other beads are okay, I like my sources better lol and I prefer antique beads and that sort of stuff. In the pic that ultra silvery blingy is a necklace that I got for a steal and now I'm going to use it to make a pair of earrings for my sis and myself...... A far as jewelry I LOVE earrings the most so the earrings I make sometimes are ridiculously blingy in a good way :)

Here are some new earring designs that I have created. This is an original design using my beautiful glass beads again. I am offering these as a special at $30 you know sometimes a pair of glass beads can be that price. You are not limited to just these glass beads, just tell me what colors you want and I will make you a custom pair! No Addtional fees! You want a something a bit different and still in style yet classic..... These are for you, I have not seen this style anywhere else. Making glass beads is definitely fun, most of my originals were made before Isabella was born because now her name is Isabella Jumping Bean! BUT I HAVE SO MANY IDEAS TO MAKE MORE BEADS!!! I have designed so many more styles and colors and different techniques. Next will be glass beads that look like they were rolled in stardust and gorgeous pink flowers with pink zircons that sparkle bling bling I like to use the trends these days but add my own twist.
These beauties are for sale, just contact me if you want one. I take Paypal so its easy. More descriptions here Eventually these will go onto my Etsy shop. They are $150 They are made up of the finest materials including my handmade glass beads. I added charms and all sorts of goodies to them. These are my own designer beads that I had made from my own original designs. I use murano glass and dichroic, moretti,vetrafond lattice ( and sometimes crazy things that I like to add to my glass beads like glass glitter and metal frit ) just like all the Big Boys like PANDORA and others for a fraction of the price but double the imagination. I started making my own charms years ago and was one of the first to incorporate this concept onto upscale style jewelry like my charm bracelets.

We have just been living life and drinking iced teas, nothing artsy going on for now. Isabella is turning 1 years old already, it's going to be wonderful, it's going to be lots goodies and hors d overs, that my mom and my aunt are going to make and I'm going to make something also and get cupcakes trying to do this sort of fabulousness on a budget isn't easy but with the help of good family it's all good. Some of you don't know this but my husband is no longer working due to some physical issues.....like not being able to walk properly, because of the amount of work he had to do,even his hip joints hurt, and tring to get him to a doctor isn't the easiest thing. So times are tough for us right now, but who isn't affected by something. On a good note, my hubby is at home with his family and is much happier. So that's about it more to come soon. We are trying to get the show on the road and do more flea markets!

Here are the finished dolls. I got this stamp years back and it was kinda............... well not kind of, it was expensive at least for me, especially at that time, but I am so glad I got it and it's larger sister. It has taken me a while to play with it but the things you can do are limitless. Some would say that making paper dolls is stupid but I don't care it keeps me from going insane and it brings me joy. So don't poo poo on my parade :) Of course I am not talking to my art friends who understand that playing with paint does something for the soul

If you are curvy like me, go to and get yourself a pair of jeans! I had a coupon and got 3 pairs for less than $60.00!!!!
Another fav of mine is Burt'sBees for natural stuff like lotions and feet cremes and chap stick and now super shiny lip gloss! They are great I love the red! So light and pretty but still sassy ..........I like my cheeks and lips to have color when I wear makeup because I like to look living. I hate nudes or the lipsticks that look like concealers, beiges on lips is tres tacky
