The problem is that I have so many necklaces and no place to hang them or keep them organized. My problems are solved now that I have found Lauren Mollica though. At Lauren Mollica you’ll find jewelry and displays that can accommodate almost all your accessories. My favorite item is the sweeping tree organizer. I’m swooning hardcore for this one. It’s amazing! I have a wall in my bedroom right now that has been begging for something on it and this finally might be the piece I’ve been looking for.
Don’t let the price turn you away. This is handcrafted! That means it was made with love and special care. A person made that! It was not made in a factory. That’s why I love handmade.
Have you heard of The CraftStar? If not you better get with it!
The CraftStar is a brand new venue for handmade lovers! Sure you might already have your favorite handmade websites bookmarked but I assure you this site sounds like it’s going to be a hit. It’s set to launch any day now and the buzz is getting louder and louder. I’ve watched the site go from 5 thousand followers to nearly 10 thousand in a mere two weeks! That’s a whole lot of steam!
Ever since Baligate sellers and buyers alike are jumping off the Etsy ship. A lot of people don’t want to be invested into a place that doesn’t care about what handmade truly means. Don’t believe me? Go read Regretsy!
For now follow them on their Facebook page and participate in all the fun. Today’s color of the day is orange. Every seller following them is busy posting their orange items for the world to see. Do you have something to add to the fun? These earrings are from Lovely Luxe Jewels.
You wouldn’t believe how excited I was to discover Carrie Bilbo yesterday. Nylon Magazine described Carrie’s work as “ridiculously edgy and chilling, but also impeccably crafted and wearable.” I couldn’t help but agree!
It was love at first sight for me and the small blue druse ring. It’s made hand fabricated sterling silver ring with a really unique and beautiful bezel set light aqua blue druse quartz over crysocolla stone. Such a simple beauty! It would go with just about anything and be such a perfect everyday ring for me. I’m swooning and only wish I had the $150 to make this purchase. What a stunner!
Every Wednesday night I have a special dinner with my girlfriend Crystal. She’s a stay at home mom to 2 month old boy girl twins and a 2 year old little girl. Her husband is a project manager for a large local corporation and works in California so she doesn’t get much adult time. I can count on Wednesday’s as a good time because we like to let loose with a few drinks, do some heavy girl talk, and just hang out.
Last night we headed to Red Robin for dinner and then off to the casino so spend money I didn’t have. Crystal knows this local casino. I’d never really done slots before so it was exciting and fun. We grabbed and beer and headed to the penny slots. I stuck my 1st 20 dollar bill in and bam! I won 72 dollars! I can see how that would get seriously addicting.
