Gorgeous Patriotic Jewelry Collection

Wow, I was really blessed today... I had 3 of my jewelry pieces included in Member-Curated Collections on ArtFire!! I'm honored! And, in honor of all our men and women in the military, I thought I'd share this one with you...

Isn't it a beautiful collection? I love flags and these pieces are just gorgeous! I also decided to share this one because it's May... and May is National Military Appreciation Month.

So I'm shouting out a huge THANK YOU to all our 
soldiers, veterans and military families
for all they do for us and all the sacrifices they make

Do You Have a Business? Is it Successful?

I know that a lot of you who follow this blog own your own businesses so I want to share a couple things you may find helpful.

First, I've started a business called aWAEHQn dreams Success Coaching specifically geared toward Women Artisan Entrepreneurs and I'd like to invite you to join my community :)

My mission is to give women entrepreneurs the knowledge and tools they need to successfully make a living from their passion and  run their small business on a small budget while also empowering them to grow as big as they want to be and live the life they have imagined.

I'm starting with a blog, facebook page and twitter account and hope to turn this into a bustling community with answers to all the challenges... business and personal... that you face as a woman entrepreneur.

I just started on March 30th and I have so much to share. My fingers can't type fast enough...LOL. So, if you have or want to start your own business, hop on over to join the journey! You can catch up on the blog posts, read About Me and How aWAEHQn dreams Came to Be and take a look at how it will help you and what I have to offer. And please take a sec to say hello and introduce yourself and your business to the community :)

Second... If you're looking for an all-inclusive business program to join, there's a fabulous one launching right now called WE Mastermind. (You probably already noticed the pretty ad over there on the right side and now you can learn what it's all about!) It's put on by two leading online entrepreneurs, Natalie Sisson and Natalie MacNeil. So, if you want to build a thriving online business doing what you love, take a look at the Want More? Dream BIG? page over on the aWAEHQn dreams blog to find out all about it.

Don't wait though... there's a limit to how many women they can accept into the program. Take some time between now and Sunday to invest in yourself, make an informed decision about whether this program is right for you and learn a whole lot for FREE while you do it.

WE Mastermind Go read all about WE Mastermind, the things you'll learn, and the opportunities you'll get. And look at the testimonials from women who have done the program. Yes, your truly is one of them ;) As you're reading this over, consider whether you think it would help you get to that perfect life you've been picturing.

* MOST IMPORTANT * Please follow this link to sign up and be my guest at the WE Mastermind webinar this Sunday! It's being held at 4pm EDT on Sunday, May 13th. Now I know... it's Mother's Day here in the US. But, trust me, you don't want to miss it. Even if you end up deciding that WE Mastermind is not for you, you'll learn a great deal just by attending the webinar itself and it's FREE for you to attend. So, please take advantage of the opportunity.

In addition to great content, they're also going to have awesome giveaways and a special offer so don't miss this webinar!! You have nothing to lose... but everything to gain :)

And, if you have any questions, just ask. I'd be happy to help.

I've Added Stamped Metal Jewelry!


Ok I'm very excited... I can finally show you the piece I mentioned  last time!! I decided last fall to add stamped metal jewelry to my repertoire because I LOVE doing custom designs and adding this option gives me soooooo much more freedom to do that for you! You saw my Island Girl test piece which was the very first time I tried stamping:

Well, as is often the case, it's usually a custom order that gets me to find the time to do things :) I didn't want to ruin a surprise because it was a 1st Anniversary gift, but now I can show it to you!!

You might remember the Custom-designed Dolphin Wedding Jewelry Set I made last year for Julz:

Well, this was a 1st Anniversary gift from Julz to Joe to hang in his truck. 
~ ♥ ~ Happy Anniversary!! ~ ♥ ~

I'm VERY excited to be working with stamped metal designs so there will be more examples to come!! 
I'm working on another one now. I'll have photos soon :)

How about you? Do you like stamped metal jewelry? I'd love to know your thoughts because, after all, I do all this for you. If you're not happy, I'm not happy.... so lemme know!!
