Hello there!

Where have I been?  Here, I swear it.  But I have been a very naughty blogger.  It isn't that I didn't want to talk to you, I promise.  It is more that I am a wee bit overwhelmed with life in general and it has me blinking sleepily at my screen often these days.  A large part of it is... *looks around anxiously, then at you earnestly*  I am itchy.    I have been itchy for about a year now.  And sometimes it is worse than others... the last couple of weeks it has been a bit much.  I have discovered new allergies *wince* thanks to my wonderful dermatologist.  Hopefully removing these allergens as much as possible from my environment will help my skin calm down :).

I promised you an inspirational lady and I will fulfill that promise, but she's been a bit busy herself the last while.  So for now, I am going to share some of my current favorite things... things I am wistfully sighing over ;)

This is from the wonderful Erin of Tesori Trovati... I love to write, someday I hope to be published!  My wonderfully talented friend Marjorie and I have been writing together for four years now... so this pendant of Erin's just made me gasp with delight:

I also love to dance... though just for fun, I'm not trained or anything lol.  And I love this gorgeous piece by my dear friend Janice over at JLynn Jewels:

As some of you know, I've become enamored with dolls again... I collected dolls for many years (my first "special" doll was given to me when I was about 8) but stopped in college (lack of space...).  I decided to combine my loves for making jewelry and dolls... and am making jewelry for dolls lol.  I have started making friends with the wonderful Blythe community and found some incredibly gifted people through it.  One of these is the amazing Cindy Sowers, she customizes dolls (new hair, face carving, face ups etc), sews the tiny costumes, and even makes wonderful hats!  I fell in love with this gorgeous dress she made...

Another shop I just love to stare at is Mab Graves'... it is the most deliciously, eerily, charmingly beautiful shop I've ever been in.  Truly.  I am currently eyeing about twenty things in her shop, bemoaning many that sold already... here is one of her prints I'm fond of:

The details on everything she does are incredible, she makes the tiniest paintings you can imagine for cameos too, using an itty bitty paintbrush!  

And the last one is... this gorgeous pendant from the sweet and kind Yoli of Yolanda's Clay:

Ok, dear friends, I have little girls who are late to bed, I will hopefully have my special beautiful soul up next week for you all!  Have a beautiful weekend :)



  1. What a beautiful pendant - LOVE it and the saying! Thanks for including me - I just listed that Dance one this evening :). The print reminds me of a song..."Walking on Air" - you know the Creepy little girl song :)

    Hopefully you are doing better with that itching girlfriend :) - been thinking about you <3
    Enjoyed reading your post!

  2. OH...and your favorite of Yoli's has been in my cart I think since she listed it...:)

  3. Beautiful pendant and I love the saying too. Lots of nice goodies Jennifer, thank you for including my pendant. Want to know a secret? I've been a naughty blogger too.... it's been a while, I better stop by and shake things up over there. Too sweet Janice! thanks ladies. :)

  4. Oh Jenn I hope the itching stops soon! I know it must make you feel absolutley miserable! I enjoyed reading your blog post and seeing all the beautiful pieces from other artists that you like. That painting is amazing! I'm going to have to check out her artwork.

  5. Miss Jennifer! I am sorry that you are itchy. Nothing worse! At first I thought that maybe you had the itch... to create! I think you have that as well. I am delighted that you like my little pendant. And writing is a special love of mine. I can't seem to stop the words from flowing. Keep writing with Marjorie and keep believing!
    Enjoy the day!

  6. Glad to see you pop back in Jennifer. Hope you can get that itch under control and get creating again soon!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, it means so much to me!
