Oh, hey, I'm still here

Don't look at me! I know I've been a lazy blog mom!
First of all, I'm sorry it's been forever. I really am. I've been doing lots of planning, lots of making, and lots of thinking, and very little blogging.

The first big news is that I will be a panelist and vendor at the Creative Women's Conference in Denton, TX on September 27th. You can find more out about the event on Facebook, plus ask me. If I don't know, I'll find out for you. In preparation for this, I've made new jewelry, gift tags, cards, and more. Anything that doesn't sell on site will hopefully be going up on the site before the holidays. 

Behind the scenes, my husband is helping me to redesign the website. Thankfully we think we've found a way to keep it from ever affecting you guys much. We should be able to import customer records and have zero downtime if all goes smoothly, it just may take awhile for the new look and feel to go live. Trust me, it will be worth waiting for. 

Additionally, I'll be doing some blog entries about my cosplay work soon so that you guys can get a glimpse into the process and how I assemble this stuff because, well, people have asked, which excites me to no end. If there's something you'd like to see here, tell me! Believe me when I say I'm always game for suggestions.

The Wild World of Printables

As part of my plan for revamping, renewing and updating this year, I want to get some printable designs going. Some of them I'll sell as digital downloads, some will just be freebie giveaway things because I like you guys. I really do. With that in mind, what kind of printables do you use or would you like to use?

Quick note: Sorry for the typo in the poll. That should be " to use" at the end of the question. Whooops!

What kind of printables do you/would you like to you? free polls

Wilde Feature: Leticia Holuska of Creative Chaos Jewelry

Shop | Blog | Twitter | Facebook

What inspired you to open a shop?
My mother. She learned to make jewelry from me, and did it for quite a few years even after I gave it up for a bit. She sold her pieces mostly locally to her friends and coworkers and family because she didn't think she was tech-savvy enough to open an online store and expand. She always wanted to open a shop with me, where she was the creator and I was the tech mind behind it. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2013 and passed away in November 2013. After that, I was inspired to start creating jewelry again and do something we had always dreamed of doing together.

What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why?
It's so hard to choose! My first favorite would have to be my Bridal Stardust Cluster Necklace (and there's a matching bracelet as well), because I love the "stardust" beads. They have such a unique sparkle and texture.

My other favorite would probably have to be any of my rosaries. People have loved them so far, they are functional but I think they are also a piece that can be passed down in the family. I recently gave one as a gift to a friend that had a newborn baby, and the whole family loved it.

What is your favorite quote?
I have two that I can think of off the top of my head. First is the verse from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 - "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

The other is the poem Footprints in the Sand. "One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand..." and so on. I am not a particularly religious person, but they both hold significance in my life.
