one year anniversary

it's been one year since i starting selling my jewelry on etsy! my first order was on october 6, 2009. since i became a stay at home mom, i loved having a creative outlet for me. i used to hand paint children's clothing, had a website/blog, and enjoyed sewing and crafting a variety of things. i would feature a variety of handmade items on my blog and write reviews. i was particularly interested in personalized jewelry and decided one day that i wanted to try it and learned on my own how to create jewelry. being a perfectionist made it very difficult to accept the fact that letters come out uneven and crooked occasionally. one year and 570 sales later, i'm still plugging away. i've had a few detours, including my mom's cancer, summer vacation, and now my daughter's possible back surgery. but, i hope i can find balance to continue to create meaningful jewelry for my wonderful customers. ♥
thank you to all of my customers who have ordered keepsakes for themselves and their loved ones to cherish!

I'm sorry to hear of the challenges you've faced recently and hope you are able to take the time you need to overcome them and find time for you to relax. I just recently found your Etsy shop and ADORE your creations! I became a first time mom on April Fool's Day this year and was very excited to ask for one of your necklaces for Christmas, but I am more than willing to be patient! :-) Your designs are just so clean and beautiful, well-made, and very affordable. I give you credit for all you've been able to accomplish over the last year and look forward to your return to the jewelry-making business. Best wishes!
