Although it's been a while since I've posted, I have not been slacking off...I've been busy making lot's of new designs for last weekend's Lone Star Ladies show and for my upcoming Annual Mother's Day Sale! The show will take place over two days, April 28th & 29th, from 9am to 3pm AND from 6 to 8pm on Wednesday, and 9am to 3pm on Thursday, special offers will include buy 2 pair of earrings receive the 3rd pair free -OR- 20% off your entire purchase!

For those of you who were unable to attend The Lone Star Ladies Present: Shop Austin, be sure to plan on attending their future events, there was a fantastic array of goods from some of the most talented (and fun) artisans in Austin, along with a few new ones from Dallas and Houston! A great time was had by all, and there was even homemade pie and gourmet chocolate & popcorn! 

I had a great show, and the icing on the cake was getting awarded the first place prize for the Vendor Booth Contest sponsored by Texas Store Fixtures; I now have a $300 gift certificate to spend at their store and a "big check/gift certificate"! I feel even more flattered due to the stiff competition, including friends & fellow artisans Christine Terrell of Adaptive Reuse, http://adaptivereuser.com/home.html  and Kristen Pumphrey of Pomme Frites, http://www.pommefrites.etsy.com/ who were awarded 2nd and 3rd place - congrats! It was very exciting and very unexpected!

This week's featured item was chosen because turquoise & copper are a hot combination with lot's of appeal!  http://www.etsy.com/listing/45187671/turquoise-tuesday-copper-canyon-turquois
