Thank You Vintaj.♥

So I was checking my email yesterday and to my surprise 
I received a special note from Vintaj
(my brass supplier)
Thanking me for using their products in my designs 
and that they are featuring one of my bracelets
in their COOL FINDS...

    The gals there must have searched
    high and low through
    etsy to find this piece.
    I am very THANKFUL!!!

    I have been creating jewelry for several
    years  and used to only use silver,
    but since I've found Vintaj Brass,
    I haven't touched my silver.
    They've got me hooked.  Thank You Vintaj!!!

    Did anyone happen to see this Sunset on November 10th?

    Every evening that I'm at home, I look out my front porch to see the sunset.
    Some evenings it is overcast, others there's not much depth to the sunset,
    & then there's evenings like this.

    It's just absolutely amazing how, for such a brief period of time,
     the sky can transform into a beautiful piece of art
    and then as quickly as it appears, it is erased!

    Oh My Buttons!!

    So, I found the cutest sweater the other day
    that had a button missing.
    Well, I still couldn't pass it up so I bought it,
    and in the middle of the night
    (that's usually when all my great ideas hit me
    and I can't get back to sleep)
    I woke up thinking,
    "I can make some cool buttons for my new sweater!!" 
    So the next day, I started creating.

    Here's a few of what I have so far...
    Bunch o' Buttons

    These are my fav so far...Fleur De Lis
    Vintaj Brass blank, Filagree, Rhinestones, glitter

    Sweet Lil Black Birds
    Vintaj Brass Bezels, Embossed Birds, rhinestones, glitter

    Let me know what you think of these little gems....
    I will have some for sale in my etsy shop soon
    or contact me if you have anything special in mind
    for that garment of yours...♥ Kerri

    This is seriously the view I have of these beautiful sunsets,
    I don't have any special devices on my camera or computer to make
    them look like this.  Amazing!!

    Monday Morning Hike

    MOM, The miles may be far, 
    but your LOVE is near my heart...
    I made this for my mom, and gave it to her after
    our hike this morning.  She & my dad live in Costa Rica
    a majority of the year and I thought I would give her something
    that she could hang in her house to remember how much 
    I love her....
    She absolutely LOVED it, 
    both she and her friend had tears in their eyes.

    This is my mom Rona, posing a sec for my nephew Bryce,
    the photographer, on our hike.  

    Me, Teresa, and my mom enjoying the fresh morning air
    and the great outdoors.  Oh yeah, the exercise is great too!
    Yes, there are still spots like this in SoCal to enjoy.

    Another awesome photo of our view while we hiked.

    What a trip!  This rock is unreal. Do you see the heart?

     So, many people have asked me if I have a shop online,
    Finally I can say "YES".

    But I think it will be worth while...

    This sunset was taken a few weeks ago from the deck of my house, it's looking out towards the Camp Pendelton mountains. 

    Finally, I'm up and running!

    I signed up for a blog a couple of months ago, but only got as far as the name and page style I wanted.  So today I decided to step away from the crafting table and sit at the computer desk to get this thing going.  I'm sure there will be many adjustments in the future, but for now it'll do.  So keep in touch cuz there's always changes going on!!
