Happy New Year!

I've never been one for making New Year's resolutions, but this year I think I'm going to make a few this year.

1.  Blog at least once a week.  I'm a fitness instructor by day --even though I teach some night classes ;-)
     so I'm going to start blogging about health and fitness too.  If I come across a truly  healthy, AND yummy
     recipe, I'll be sure to pass it along.  I may have a fitness tip or two to share as well.

2.  Try to do something creative everyday, whether I'm working on a piece of jewelry or sketching a design
      for something.

3.  Try, try, try to stay organized!  That means keeping the house clean and the laundry done--even when I'm
     busy being creative.  This is going to be the hard one lol

I have been busy listing new items in my newly opened shop at

Recycled Green Bottle, Oil, Vinegar or Dish Detergent Decanter with Clay Leaves
Happy, happy, happy New Year!!!!!  Enjoy the fireworks!

New shop on

Handmade Necklace Clay Sunset Pendant Set in Silver Teardrop Frame
I've opened a new shop on  I'm pretty confident that I will be closing my Artfire shop at the year's end.  I found this new venue and am really excited about it!  They truly sell HANDMADE items.  Yes, they do sell some supplies for recycling purposes, but you will not find any COMMERCIALLY made items on this site.  This is one of the many things that I don't like about selling on Artfire (they recently added a commercial section).  I'll leave it at that.  Bonanza also sells commercial items, but since my account there is free, I'm going to leave some items there as well.  I also still have some items listed on Zibbet.  My goal is to eventually make this site, my main one.  It's really tough to maintain this many.  Transferring everything over is going to be a process though.

The items that I've listed here are completely new.  Here's a peek (p.s. you can access my store by clicking on the link right below my banner).
