What’s New Wednesday 5/7/14 (Crayons and Teacher, Keys and Hummingbird and Hazel Cove)

What’s new?  Not to much I can tell you right now, but it is in the works!!  As always I have ‘lots’ of things in the pipeline.  BUT, for now, I can’t tell you about it all!!  Can I just say FIRE MOUNTAIN GEMS???  OK, that is all I can say!!  But just wait, it is going to be BIG, very BIG!!!
Who has been watching this one?  I will be finishing it today and I hope that the ‘extras’ I add on will make it really unique!!  Keep watching today and see what happens!! All you have to do is come over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post ‘working photos’ throughout the day!
Another day of ‘showing off’ older creations!!  These are just sitting in my studio waiting to go to their new homes…..where will they go??
Yesterday I introduced Hazel Cove, and today I would like to tell you more about them.  When I asked her how she learned how to make her creations she said that there was a trial and error period of teaching myself that made me capable of creating the designs that I do today.  After figuring out how to make the creation in her own style she has now perfected it!  I have to say that when I look at these great creations her attention to details really shows – no ‘bubbles’, all the links are secure and the bead work is impeccable. 
After moving her family to Oklahoma to support her husband career she started making Key Chains.  From there, after trying many other crafts, her love of personalization was born!  Like many of us the transition from working full time to being a stay at home mom was a big one.  But, throwing herself into these creations not only helped, but turned her ‘down time’ into a productive business. So, what started out as a necessity to create something from her children to their Grandparents is now making LOTS of Grandparents (and many others) happy. 
Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you HER favorite designs and mine, and more about how this amazing lady has taken a passion to a business!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;

Never forget the debt you owe to all those that come before you.

    I LOVE that last one, ‘thank you for raising the man of my dreams’. I would like to say that to my future mother in law. I should when we see her this weekend.

      🙂 I did a whole cross stitch picture with a saying just that for my mom-in-law and gave it to her at our wedding – 15 years ago!!! 🙂 ~KM
