News in Gabriel's world!

Well, we finally got the results of all the tests we run on Gabriel my son, in the hope of getting him better. The results shows that there is something going on with my little guy, something more of just language impairment like we initially thought. The good news is that we found a school program that will help him evaluate and recuperate whatever is going on. This school program is available at the school just across the street from our house {which is very good, the car broke down again :(} and they're available to start with him right after spring break.
My thoughts today go to all the children out there like Gabriel, because children with this kind of issues are usually the sweetest in the world.
And to all the parents that like me are struggling with the desire and the fear of doing the right thing. If your child is smiling at you, you probably are doing something good!
I'd like to post some picture of my sweet little guy, but unfortunanly I'm having computer problems and the pictures are not available at the moment.

First Artfire Artist Feature: Gems by Jerri

Your name? Jerri

Location? Comfort, TX

Where can you be found on the net?

How long have you been crafting?
I have been crafting off and on for most of my life. I only started creating for sale in the last year. I previously gave my jewelry as gifts or sold to friends and family.

How long have you been selling?
I have had an Etsy shop since July of 2008. I recently opened a studio on ArtFire as well.

What is your favorite item in your shop?
My current favorite are the newly listed Chysolite and Jet pieces, particularly the earrings.

What's the most exciting thing about your craft?
I love when I receive new materials. I get so excited about what I can create. It's almost like Christmas when I get an order in the mail. The next best thing is logging in to my shops and finding an order, because that is when you know you aren't the only one who loves an item.

What do you like least about your craft?
I can't begin to explain how much I dislike photographing and editing photos to post. It has to be the most difficult part of any listing for me.

Is crafting a full or part-time job for you? If part-time what's your day job?
I craft in my spare time. I work full time for a jewelry manufacturing company here in south Texas. I prepare waxes for casting, usually in silver. I actually get to do a job I truly enjoy, so I couldn't be happier.

What would you like to learn next?
I am currently learning to work with polymer clay and really think it could become my new addiction.
Did you enjoy learning about Gems by Jerri?? I sure hope so! I know so, I can see you, my readers, digging in the etsy and artfire shops admiring this beauties...eheheh
Jerri was also very king to feature my ArtFire studio on her blog, so go read what she wrote about me!

Exciting News!!!

I'm here tonight, very tired but I had to post on my blog....lately I neglect it a little and I'm heartbroken for that!
The reason behind my limited time is in part because recently I become poster on 2 very important blog sites that I loved waaaaaaaaaaaaay before I joined the crew:
etsygiveaways and indie discounts.
Most people know that etsygiveaways does the hard job to promote all the giveaways coming from etsy sellers.
Indie discounts is newer and over there we promote special and sale hold in any online shop (etsy, artfire, shophandmade, ebay, etc).
So, If you have a giveaway or a sale to post, now you sure know where to go :)

Also, I'm revamping my etsy shop, I'm holding a spring cleaning sale to move out old inventory and make room for new, a little different items! So, stay tuned for more news!!

I won a giveaway: Featuring Angel Heart Beads

I must admit I;m a realy jerk and all the time I enter a giveaway I'm very sceptical about winning! But this time actually happened!! I couldn't believe it when Tracy, owner of the etsy shop Angel Heart Beads, emailed to comunicate this to me and still I couldn't believe my eyes when I found a silver elegant package in my mail box.
Are you curious about the content?? Here you go, look for your self:

Mine are actually blue, while this pair in the picture is a delicate shade of lilac.....still stunning and breath taking, don't you think?
And that's not it!!! I found my self browing for hours in Tracy's shop and I found some very unique pieces.

Safari Sunset puzzle piece necklace and bracelet set

All the colors of the Safari at sunset, this beautiful set is sure to get you noticed. Each vibrant piece is individually sealed with diamond glaze. The backs of the pieces are painted with acrylic black paint, and sealed for protection. Genuine swarovski crystal flat backs adorn these already stunning puzzle pieces for an added flare.

Love ring

Pretty deep pink facet cut Czech glass beads cluster together and shine on this pretty silver tone adjustable ring. So feminine and dainty - perfect for the girly girl!

Gothic Love Glass and Hematite Watch

This stunning piece if our version of Gothic Love. Pretty red watch face with little hearts, is adorned by large blood red faceted Czech glass and hematite beads. Beads are woven on a firm flex stretch line and can fit from a size 7 1/2" to 9" wrist.

Here it is a little bit fo story behind this beautiful shop:
Tracy and Robert Armstrong have been creating jewelry for four years together. Robert has a back ground in graphic design, while Tracy has an extensive back ground in theatre arts, and music composition. Their jewelry designs featuring a vast spread of beads, gems, glass, and clay are inspired by the lush Pocono mountains surrounding their home in North Eastern Pennsylvania. While not creating jewelry, the duo divides their time attending craft shows, painting ceramics, and adding to their ever growing movie collection.

Enjoy!! And don't forget to pass my Tracy' shop to say hi!!
