I See It...

the light at the end of the tunnel. I have spent the last couple of days managing my to do list.

Finishing the charms for the Charmsters, Words, Words, Words swap. I'm assuming that there will be lots of inspirational charms. I wanted to do something a little different...light, fun...this is what I came up with. I hope these are well received, as this is my first swap. I had too much fun making these...

Creating a few more pieces and getting prepared for the Artist Studio Tour this weekend.

I love this necklace sooo much...I hope it doesn't sell...

And finally, getting prepared for Thanksgiving. I cooked...and this was the best Thanksgiving! Low key this year, usually I have about 20 people...and this year only 9. My hubby deep fried a turkey...YUM! and over all the day was much more relaxing than normal.

Now, I'm ready for the onslaught of people coming to view and hopefully purchase my wears.

I hope you all had a Wonderful Thanksgiving...we really do have so much to be thankful for, simple things that we take for granted everyday.

Have a GREAT weekend!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! That necklace is so beautiful...I wouldn't want it to sell, either!

  2. Hi Shelby
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving today. I've never tried a deep fried turkey, but I've heard they are good.
    Your 1st Charmsters swap charms turned out wonderful!!
    I love your new pieces, but especially the necklace (I can see why you're hoping it doesn't sell!).

  3. I love that necklace too! Just stunning!
    Good luck with your sale...I am having my open house tomorrow and hope for that onslaught too!

  4. I'm a bit late in wishing you a great Thanksgiving, but glad to hear you enjoyed it! What I can do, is wish you a fantastic Studio Tour with lots of enthusiastic buyers!!

  5. I enjoyed helping you today and keeping you company!

  6. How could anyone not love a bit of whimsey? We had a similar low key Thanksgiving with lots of laughs as well. I'm thinking all holidays should be the same. Good luck with your studio tour!

  7. Oh that necklace is super funky! I think you should hold that one for yourself. Good luck on the show, Shelby!

  8. PS. Love the charms for the Charmsters group. Can't wait to get mine!

  9. Your necklace is really gorgeous Shelby, love the beautiful links and this incredible focus bead. Good luck with your sale.

  10. I hope your studio tour went well. I love all your new designs! Mmmmm.....deep fried turkey. I have heard from friends that it is amazing and hope to try it out one day.

  11. your work is gorgeous and i do think that your choice of word is wonderful... we do need whimsy in our lives... did that necklace sell? :0)
