I want to type something stupendous today, to post pictures of new jewels that are forming under my hands and in my brain when I sleep, and whose designs are sketched on a pads of scrap paper next to my bed and on my desk. I love the things that are dancing about me.
I want to write about how I am honored to be asked by Vintage Indie Editor/Writer Gabreial Wyatt - the smart chic gal behind Vintage Indie Mag, Vintage Pulse, and Indie Wedding Guide to be a mediator and editor for her site, and the March issue of the Wedding Guide. It makes me excited to write more, and to share with vintage lovies and antique collectors around the world. Like a marrying of soul paths for me: writing. creating. jewelry. vintage. antiques. collectibles. my work with AntiqueWeek.
When I look over the jewels scattered across my work bench, and I realize what's been making my creative heart beat strong lately, it is all vintage. The idea of reworking, upcycling, recreating. Ahhhh. loves it, I surely do.
And because it's almost Friday, and I have a feeling betwixt composing 29 treat bags and Nutta Butta ghosts and brownie goblins tonight for JC's preschool party (so fun!) and because I love etsy and my want list is becoming quite long, a sharing time of bootiful things. (sorry, had to do it.)

And one more thing: a fall break, my son got all A+'s, momma doesn't work on Friday trip to the Indianapolis Childrens "Mooseum." Where approximately 4,000 other hip moms/dads/grams/gramps/etc. decided to also venture on the same day.
We did have a total blast.
