Yes, I am at work. And yes, I should wait to post until later. But I just couldn't wait!
My amazingly talented friend Angela just alerted me to her *new* Etsy shop she opened over the weekend! I just took a look and WOW! The jewelry, the photos, the descriptions - beautiful! So, so impressed!
Angela and I became friends when we started working together about 2 years ago. I remember commenting on her pretty necklace her first day; she replied, "Thanks, I made it." I couldn't believe that she had actually twisted all the wire herself and taken the time to make something so intricate (to see what I mean, look at her Mary Neckalce, which I love)! She does it all -cooking, sewing, and of course jewelry-making. And I owe my introduction to the craft-blogging world to her. So a BIG shout out to Angela!
Be sure to stop in at the shop and visit her blog - she's doing a giveaway for the earrings pictured above (or another similar pair - your choice). Yay!
UPDATE: Congrats, Jordan, on winning the earrings!

It's Primary time! I have spent much of my past week watching debates, interviews, and covereage of the Republican and Democratic Primaries. I even dreamed about a couple of the candidates the other night - yikes!

Glitter, well, pretty much everywhere
Tasty cheescake treats, bean dip, shrimp, etc. etc. in our stomachs
Noisemakers in our mouths
Sparkling Cider in our goblets
Sparklers in our hands
Family and friends filling the house
Along with hopes, wishes, and dreams for a wonderful year ahead.
Happy New Year!
