I managed to pull myself away from my desk for the holidays, and have been a little slow in my lil' factory over here.  I am a workaholic when it comes to what I love, and creating my latest pieces is my absolute most favorite.  I am really loving what I do, and feel really, really, inspired and wish sometimes I had like eight of me handy, lol.

New Years is approaching and looking back at 09', I have to say this is a year I will never forget.  I finally put myself out there, and found something I could put all of me in, my jewelry.  I have always loved creating and can be a "jill of all trades", but I would always try new things, never finish or lose interest, but now I feel like I am really living my passion, my dream, and that is to create jewelry.  I  would like to thank my husband for the push, and that little voice inside of me that said to just, "let it go and go for it!".  I am glad I did, and I will never look back.  What warms my heart even more, is to see the love and appreciation that others share with me and my work.  What I do is very personal, and I put all of myself and my heart into my work.  I was always afraid to put myself out there, for fear of getting my feelings hurt,  but I am glad that I finally opened up for the world to see. It feels great and I truly appreciate the love and have complete gratitude.  I am looking forward to sharing more of me, living my passion, and dream.  I love what I do, and its the best feeling in the world.  Thanks to know who you are.  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!

Home is where the heart is, truly....

One of the benefits of working from home besides freedom, is the special moments that are experienced.  The moments you get to share with those most important in your life.  For me these moments are the ones where my daughter and  I get to act silly, sing and dance together.  Its the laughter, the happiness, and the joy of just being in the moment that are most inspiring to me.

Cake it up sweeties....

It all just came together over the last few weeks with out planning and I am soo psyched about it.
Here is my first collection The Eat Cake Mary Antoinette Collection.  The necklace from my one of my recent blogs already sold and was my absolute favorite ( I had to make myself one).  I sold a few of the rings and earrings and I am so inspired and can't wait to make some more designs and share them with you.  

She showed up on my door step yesterday...and I <3 her!!!

**Note after just a few weeks of my pieces being on etsy,  my Eat Cake Line is currently being imitated by another Etsy Seller, so beware of unoriginal "copycakers".  The cake may look similiar, but it sure doesn't taste the same.**  Thanks and enjoy!

I was watching the film Marie Antoinette by Sophia Coppola a few weeks ago, and was reminded of why I loved the movie soooo much.  The eye candy in this movie is so lovely, beautiful and inspiring to me.  The color palette, the sweets, the clothes, the shoes, its just soooo gorgeous and captures an opulance and decadance that I just adore.   In my pieces I incorporate an essence of Marie Antoinette, but with a modern funky twist as I did in my most recent pieces.  I really admired her sense of style and its over the top luxurious fabulousness (I know that can't be right, but oh well, lol.) Love her or hate her she will continue to be muse for all forms of art, including my own.  You should definately check the film out, a definate visual feast for those who can appreciate that aspect of the film.

*Note:   Images are off of google images and will get them linked as soon as hubby teaches me, lol.  Thanks.
