The new issue of Lonny is here, and...I have no words. It's...amazing. My heart was seriously pounding while I was reading it. It was that good. The only thing that detracted from the whole experience was the typos, but I am a grammar and spelling nazi-type, so it probably won't bother most people.

Here's a teaser:

It's designer Vanessa DeVargas's bedroom. DY-ING. Inside. By the way, she shops at JCPenney. WTF? Don't get me wrong, that's freaking awesome, but since when did JCP get cute home stuff? I guess I need to hit them up. When I get some money. Which will probably not be anytime soon.

I just wanted to share because I love Lonny, and I'm so excited that their new issue is out! Go now and read it! Here's another link: Lonny. Go now!

Once again, time has slipped by and I haven't posted! I've been relaxing and enjoying my freedom from homework and lesson plans...I haven't even been making jewelry! And it's been fabulous. If there is one thing I love, it is relaxing (or being lazy, as Nick would say). I don't really have any fun updates...just a new header for the holidays! I've been working on some new branding, so you might notice I've used different fonts. It's still a work in progress, but I like it better thus far.

I was looking for a pretty lace ornament-type thing to put on some of my branding items, and couldn't find anything that was 1. free (cost-free and copyright-free), and 2. cute. So, I made my own. I thought other people might want enjoy it as well, so I've included it in this post! It's a free, printable, vintage doily! I used the mustard-ish color you see here, but feel free to change the color to anything you want! If you use it, just link me so I can see what awesomeness you've created with it!

Here's a link for the PDF download.

I don't think I have any other news as of right now. Still no job, but I honestly haven't been looking! When school starts up again after the break I'm going to send my resume to a couple of schools and see if I can get an interview.

This was a lame update, but I hope you can use the doily!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

And I don't mean Christmas. Don't get me wrong, Christmas is awesome, there's no doubt. BUT this year, the most wonderful time is now because I am DONE with student teaching and have turned in anything and everything that has to do with student teaching. I spent 6 hours at Converse on Monday, filling out forms, submitting my ADEPT Portfolio, and other paperwork stuff, and now I can say I AM FINALLY FREE!!!!

To celebrate, I'm going to make some jewelry! But first, I wanted to show you our itty bitty Christmas trees. Nick is not impressed, but WHATEVER they are awesome! See for yourself:

Here's a closeup of the fabulous bowl of all-pink ornaments:

Also, head on over to Design Gal's blog for the 11th day of her 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! I am the featured seller for the giveaway, so you can comment and enter to win a pair of lovely earrings by yours truly!

Tomorrow, you can see me in person at Mia Alexander Salon for their Christmas Open House! I'll be there with a table full of hawleywood gorgeousness that has NEVER BEEN SEEN!! Not on Etsy, not here, not anywhere but my studio (aka, the crap room)!

So, come out Saturday, December 12th from 12-4 for food, wine, lovely salon and spa gift cards, and jewelry!
