It's almost more day!  Tomorrow morning, I will be at artBLISS!

Hosted by the lovely ladies, Jeanette Ryan and Cindy Wimmer, three days of jewelry making classes filled with creativity will be taking place!

I will be taking two classes with Richard Salley and Jessica Papke, and one class with Stacie Florer! My classes will entail making rings, rings with cabochons, and POST earrings!   I hope to hone my soldering skills...we shall see!  

Miracle Horse Rescue - Fundraiser Update

As of September 25, I have raised - and already donated - $1,865.00 to benefit the equines at Miracle Horse Rescue!  I have been gobsmacked with orders (THANK YOU!!) and I am beyond flabbergasted! Quite frankly, I anticipated maybe 6-8 sales over the 7 week fundraising period ...I never thought I would raise so much money, especially in such a short period of time.  I am truly humbled by this support! I am hoping that I am also raising awareness to the plight of horse rescue - all animal rescue!  

I have been bombing Facebook with my fundraising efforts - thank you for not "un-friending" me! :)

I will be away from my shop from Friday- Sunday (September 27 - September 29).  Normally, I would place my Etsy shop "on vacation", but since I will only be away a couple of days, I decided to leave it open.  So, I stocked my shop with new earrings:

And this lovely bracelet, too!

The current discount in my shop of 25% off continues through  9/27/13.  From September 28th - October 12th, save 20%!  No coupon required!  It's not too early to shop for Christmas - or yourself!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend (I know I will!!)  Thank you for stopping by!
