Picking up the pace

I've got a new spin on my cupcake bracelet...this one has chocolate cupcakes with ivory frosting, a red cherry and matching sprinkles.

They were a special request by a new friend of mine that is soon to open a cuppie shop using these colors.
This turned out beautifully, particularly with that awesome hollow Bali silver bead front & center. Nice.

I'm picking up the pace now as jewelry orders are flowing in more steadily...pretty exciting. I also have had my Minnie Glam earrings featured in a treasury on Etsy, so we'll see what kind of traffic that will bring to my sites.

We are sweating here east of the San Francisco bay...100 degrees today. My husband has long wanted a portable air conditioner for our second floor and I always thought it was a waste of money for what usually turns out to be MAYBE a total of 3 weeks of intense heat each year...well, for us anyway...near 100 is extra hot here.

Well, we finally got the darned thing and now the hottest room in the house has become our coolest so I love it. I stay downstairs on days like these except for using the computer. So, I close everything up in that room before I start dinner so that it's cooler when my husband gets home work. In the past, he felt his energy was sapped by the heat and sometimes he would sleep downstairs just to have cooler air.

We have dinner and then go back up there and chat and watch some t.v. It's reviving to have the coolness, so it turned out to be a good investment, plus we can roll it from room to room where needed. Simple to hook up too!

I've adjusted my MomsArt site to a boutique style. I've been finding fun stuff usable in crafting, scrapbooking & card making so I decided I'd make the shopping there a never quite know what you'll find there so it's fun to keep returning. Check it out at
