It's hard to believe that it has been over a month since my last blog post! For better or worse, the feverish, December shopping rush has carried into January, which leaves me little time for my beloved blog. GASP! I know, isn't that just terrible? I admire professional bloggers who have the time and energy to post something new and intriguing EVERYDAY. Obviously, I have to wait MONTHS to find something worthy enough to share with anyone! HA! Because of of the flurry of this sustained craziness, I find myself more than a little tired. So, the subject of today's Handmade Fashion Finds is NAP TIME. On this rainy, overcast Friday morning, I'm wishing I could just snuggle on the couch ALL DAY in my pajamas, with a thick, soft blanket and a cup of chai tea in my hands. Enjoy the restful luxuriousness of the handmade items above, and if you MUST WORK like I must today, make sure to pour yourself some tea to comfort you while you work. :)

|My Bio on the Maine Jewelry & Art web page|
Ever since I was a child, I ALWAYS knew I wanted to be an artist. I loved drawing, painting, sculpting, and the prospect of having a job where I thought I had to wear a little french beret. Of course, I did think about going down a few other career paths as I grew up (eg. a ballerina, Stone Philips' co-anchor on the Nightly News, an architect, an art teacher, a construction worker, a medical receptionist, and a foreign language translator) before I decided on being a Jewelry Designer.
When all was said and done, my inherited artistic abilities (thanks dad!), and my general, overwhelming joie de vivre and love of sparkly things (thanks mom!) led me to comfortably settle into jewelry making. I'm not going to lie, I still secretly want to be a ballerina, but the thought of being the only student over 3 feet tall in an introductory ballet class makes me realize that the ship of opportunity has REALLY already sailed on that career path.

I also love to blog (www.sweetsincerityjewelry.blogpost.com), to participate in community volunteer work, and shop-while attempting to control my seemingly insatiable love of pretty shoes and overpriced handbags."
