happy emails and fall shows

I've just finished participating in the Webb School Show in Bell Buckle, TN and the Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. I had some broiled shrimp, grilled shrimp, boiled spicy peel'n'eat shrimp, shrimp bisque, shrimp on a stick, fried shrimp, and stuffed shrimp (seriously I ate all of those in one week!). I felt like I gained ten pounds, but a polish sausage at the Webb School Show seems to have cleaned me right out again. Ewww...

Ah, anyway - here are some more customer testimonials! I literally got four awesome ones in one day - thanks guys!!

Beth--I purchased a necklace from you during the 2006 Creative Arts Guild Festival and I LOVED IT!!! I recently purchased a pair of earrings from you and LOVE THEM! I have emailed your web site to ALL of my family and friends and have told them what a wonderful artist you are. Hope they give you lots of business and I WILL BE SHOPPING FOR CHRISTMAS and for years to come :) I LOVE YOUR JEWELRY!!! Heather

and another one...


Thank you so much for the beautiful freshwater pearl necklaces for our 2007 FrivoliTIES fundraiser benefiting Family & Children’s Service! They are so fabulous and will definitely help us reach our goal of $140,000. It is such a treat to have something personal and handmade at an auction and we are privileged to display these necklaces.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity over the years. Our community is lucky to have you – I know you have been donating to local charity auctions and I appreciative that you always support the ones I am working on. Thanks! And Congrats on all the well-deserved recognition you are getting!

Thanks again for everyone's support! I couldn't make jewelry if I didn't have happy customers!

gramps and granny

so... greggles and i "went out" for the first time all month by ourselves to kick back and relax a bit after our grueling month of work, reunions and craft shows. it started at jackson's with some wild and crazy wrap sandwiches and i had one bloody mary. the party's warming up.

then, back to my place for some shiner boch - not even the high alcohol content yazoo we usually drink. then, we really let loose - we both surfed the internet on our laptops on my patio until our batteries were dead. then, two beers a piece later, we were completely passed out on the couch watching "myth busters" on discovery channel at 9:15. we were both fighting to stay awake to watch one of the myth buster brothers jump into a big tank of water with a whirlpool funnel, just to see what happened. alas, we crawled up to bed at 9:45 and couldn't even manage to stay awake for ten more minutes to watch the whirlpool stunt. what can i say? we're just party animals, the two of us... did i mention we had a yard sale earlier in the day? rock stars, i tell you!!!
