Lots of new gems in my GemGourmet shop!  I had these specially cut just for my Fall/Winter 2010 work.

  I also have them in Cognac Quartz. Rock Crystal Quartz and Garnet.. LUXE for sure!

Crazy Busy.. New Work and Musings...

I SO want this new tutorial I ran across on Etsy.. Really cool.  I used to do some great wirework (will have to find pix of old stuff) but  have got away from it for the last couple of years.  These are on my wish list!

I am still learning the in's and out's of blogging.. I think the above pix SHOULD have a link to her page.  If not here is the link:

Finally My Cupcake Review!

Cupcake Update!!! (Hey that rhymes! *smile*)

Oh where to even start!

Well as you can see the package was an explosion of fun!
Totally amazing presentation and it was like opening a fantastic gift.

These are the best cupcakes I have ever had and that is saying allot because this girl has had bunches of cupcakes over the years! I also call myself quite a cupcake creator and these blew me away. Truly Spoonful of Sugar is a cupcake connoisseur!

I had four different types:

A Red Velvet Cake with Vanilla cream cheese frosting and chocolate ganache filling
A Banana Cake with peanut butter frosting and caramel filling
A Chocolate Cake with peanut butter frosting and caramel filling
And A Lemon cake with coconut frosting and raspberry filling..

Well the Red Velvet and the Banana Cake were actually for me and the Chocolate Cake and Lemon Cake one were for my DH. I did of course HAVE to taste his because I had to know how amazing they were for my review didn’t I!?

My very fav was actually the Banana Cake one which surprised me because my fav is normally the Red Velvet one but the Banana cake was out of this world! OK.. they all were but the peanut butter frosting blew me away.

My DH loved the Lemon Cake one the best.

I guarantee you can never go wrong with Spoonful of Sugar and any of her amazing creations!  One thing I also love is the jars!  I am still using my nice mason jars to this day. 

I just saw that she has some really cute Halloween treats!! It’s not too late. Get them ordered today.. her shipping is lightening fast!

Hi To My New Followers!

I am checking out everyone's blogs and wow, I am really impressed.  I can learn so much from each of you.  Your blogs all look fantastic.

Right now I want to learn how to do a link with the text that I want in it.. where it does not look like a link.  I have done it before with HTML... I just can't remember how!

I've been working on photos today.  I have to break down and purchase a new light setup.  What do you guys use?  I would love some advice.  I only have a small card table in my office I use for shooting.  It's in front of a window now and I can take good photos as long as I hit late afternoon.  Other than that, I have to shoot outside!  It's too damn hot here right now for any of that craziness.

Some fresh work:

My store:

I am having a hard time with my camera inside.  As you can see with the two top photos my lilac Chalcedony looks like two totally different gems.  I am thinking about getting an Ott light to shoot under.  Maybe having light that is supposed to look natural (like they are) will help me!

Well now for something completely different.

That actually says allot doesn't it. 
Night all~

Well.. I was not a virgin for very long! (shut your mouth).
My second post.

I have my very first follower!    She owns the shop "Lilbitty" on Etsy,
check our her shop:

She of course does metal work which is fitting because I bitch at all my friends that "some day I want to learn metal work" but never seem to find the time.
I wanted to share this beautiful copper cuff bracelet in her shop that I NEED.  It's just brilliant:

You can see it here:

Stop by her shop and show some love.
I am excited she's my first follower.

It's a Virgin Post..

!!! My very first post.  So much loveliness I have in mind I want to share. I can't wait to post here! 
So many blogs I follow are amazing and I hope to feature them all here eventually. 

Off to learn more about how to design my NEW blog!
