Better Late Than Never

For any and all of you who were waiting for my normal Wednesday post announcing this weeks giveaway winner and my words of wisdom I apologize for the lateness of my post.

I was out of commision for most of the day today thanks to a horrific migraine courtesy of some new meds I'm on.

But better late than never!!

I've been one busy been lately! Re-photographing my jewelry and making new pieces and stocking up my shop. This week the focus as been all about necklaces, lol. But thats me, I have way too many interests and shift back and forth heavily alot. Anyways, I thought I'd give you all a glimpse of a few of my new pieces :-)

Wednesdays Words of Wisdom

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward in the same direction."
- Antoine De Saint-Exupery

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to confront only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
- Henry David Thoreau

"You see things and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were and say, 'Why not?'"
- George Bernard Shaw

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."
- Winston Churchill

"The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just."
- Abraham Lincoln

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
- Aristotle

This weeks blog giveaway is officially over and we have a winner!

As always I used the Random Number Generator website to make sure that the prize is awarded fair and square. BIG Thank Yous to everyone of you who entered for a chance to win, making this a super sucessful giveaway!! You all ROCK!

CONGRATS to Cicada Studio who wins the amazing 3 card set from Three Red Hens Letterpress & Design!!

***NOTE*** I've decided to take a break from my giveaways for a little while - in part because tommorow my family and I are leaving for vacation in wonderful, sunny Flordia and I'll be away from etsy-land and blog-land for a little over a week (don't worry folks, I'll still be checking in!) and partly because I need a break - its tough to have to make time every single Wednesday Thursday afternoons to post when life with 2 kiddos is wonderfully unpredictable. I will still be doing a few etsy seller/item features, but no giveaways for a bit - maybe when school starts in the fall. Hope you all understand and can support me and my little blog on this ♥
