I haven't started off too consistently on here. I don't plan on making that a habit. The main reason I haven't posted much is that I don't want to bore all of you with my ramblings on gardening and housekeeping :)

The yard project is pretty much done now (just maintenance mode now) and my family and I are now on a mini vacation in Steamboat Springs for the weekend. We SOO needed this too. I'll post some pics of the area in the next few days. It was a beautiful drive over here. Not too long, but full of amazing scenery. I am going to concentrate on getting some good pictures while here and probably on the way back home. So for right now it is all about much needed relaxation and rejuvenation. Mountains are good for my soul...

So a couple of things have happened on the shop front in the last few days. First of all, I had a custom ring order last week (which was my first sale on Etsy by the way :) and the wonderful buyer left me a super sweet feedback that just seriously made my day. You know, I ALWAYS hope that the people who purchase my pieces will be happy, but it is extremely gratifying to hear that kind of response! I also received another custom order yesterday with the request that I make a necklace, bracelet, ring and earring set, patterned after my 'Memories of NM' necklace. That will be a lot of fun to construct and I can't wait to see what they will end up looking like. I will post pics on here when they are done.

Here are the cabochon pics that I mentioned I would post for my mom and sister.

Here are some close-ups to get a better idea of the size...

The pictures are a little dark...I took them very quickly while I was gathering a few things to leave.
Can't wait to get started on these puppies :)

Thank you very much! :)
I am falling in love with the lapidary world myself now that I include it in my jewelry!
