Still Adjusting

I still can't believe that summer is over:( The kids and I spent the last week of August enjoying the beach, the arcade, and the boardwalk. We ate it up! It wasn't busy at all, the week before Labor Day is always the best! Shhh!, Don't tell! I guess it's because those who haven't returned to school are busy preparing to return, and have gone home to do so. Then we made a 180 degree turn! School started on Wednesday, while I love the lazy days of summer, I prefer routine and structure with the weekends thrown in to mix it up. It's always a huge adjustment period and I'm thankful for us all that the first week of school is a short one! Shew!

When the opportunity has presented itself, I've been working in the studio and updating my Etsy shop. There are a couple new pieces
absolutely love this stone!

and I had to say good-bye to one of my favorite rings. I so, so bad wanted to keep this one! (but then I feel that way about quite a few, lol) But alas, it went in the shop and found a new home. A good thing, cause then I can purchase more stones and metal!! Woohoo!

While I try to list more jewelry in my Etsy shop, I'm also having a sale! Save 15% on any purchase in my shop by using coupon code: LETSGO.

Now that the kids are starting to get settled back into a routine, it's time for me to get back to mine! I have high hopes for next week!
