|I Love You Blogs and Coffee Print (ESPRESSO) (8X10) |

I'll admit it...I've been a bit of a blogging slacker the last two days. I haven't blogged a single word!!!! I'm still trying to figure out what the right amount of blogging for me is, per week. Say, if I managed to actually blog everyday, would people be so annoyed hearing about my simple, little, mundane life ALL THE TIME that they would want to repeatedly bang their heads against the wall just to fend off the boredom? On the other hand, I certainly would like to keep my blog fresh and current so Sweet Sincerity Jewelry can continue to grow-PLUS blogging is free advertising! Which you gotta love! :) I sure do! It's these dichotomies that keep me up at night. :) Still not sure what my blogging future will hold, besides getting this fantastic poster from jenniferramos' shop on Etsy. For now, I think, unless I suddenly become a blogging goddess with insanely fast typing skills and an endless amount of interesting things to blabber on about, I will probably aim to blog three times a week. Any thoughts? Please, feel free to leave a comment and tell me when you're sick of hearing from me every other day. :)

iloveyouthankyou. She's destashing a lot of quality beads because she is a metal smith by trade, and she plans in the future to only do metal jewelry. So...she gave me an AMAZING deal on these beads! YAY! I need to keep repeating to myself, "WORK MORE, BUY LESS! WORK MORE, BUY LESS!"
Oooh, here's something exciting (speaking of shopping)-I am in the process of gathering a collection of vintage brooches from various Etsy vintage sellers to use as pendants in an new, upcoming line of necklaces! How cool is that? I can't wait to get started. Here are a few of the ones I have in my possession or have ordered thus far... I can just see they are going to make fantastic pendants. They will give me a certain style to work with, a sort of focal point for the necklace to start from. Stay tuned! I'll be sure to let you know when they are completed!

Sweet Sincerity shop. It's a hard decision, and I am not known for my decisiveness, that's for sure. I don't really want to mess with the ALL JEWELRY focus of my current shop, but I don't think I have time right now to start up a second one! I have so many more ideas too, if only there were more hours in the day and enough coffee to caffeinate me so I never needed to sleep! :) I dream of starting a clothing line, a shoe line, and a shop selling men's jewelry too! Well, for now, here's some Art. Back in reality, that's all I've got for you today. LOL! Enjoy.
Finally, I just joined a Etsy team called Pay It Forward, with the idea being that every time you are featured in a treasury, you create a treasury to feature the person who featured you! It's a way for artists to promote each other and to repay the kindness and hard work of those who selflessly make treasuries that don't include their own items. I think it's pretty lovely. However, I only just figured out how it works, so let me apologize to the many people who already featured my jewelry in their treasury and have not yet received one back! :) I will be getting on that ASAP! :) Here's one of my favorite treasuries that my Mamma Mia Yellow Sundrop Pendant Necklace was featured in.
