I am back to work on new buckles

These buckles are not grouted yet, but you can see them taking shape.  I still need to clean them too!  I was going to silver and gold leaf the black clay flowers.

Last Day of school for Andrew!

I love packing the uniforms away. I am so glad school is over for now. I don't have to yell anymore.  I am going North as usual, to New Hampshire.  I will post as many pics as I can.  It is the most magical place.  My son gets to go to the farm to buy milk.  we always go to visit the "goat in a coat" a goat wearing a vintage man's grey coat. The goat has had the same coat for years!  My husband is there now. He says it's the most beautiful place on earth.  He called to say that they just got 12" of fresh snow.  Blue and White,  my favorite!

I think I am lost in Etsy.  I Have had my first 2 online sales.  A big step for me.  I have sold my art in shops around Boston and Florida.  I am learning about online.  It's very different.  bricks and mortar are easy!  Traffic is the key.  How do you make traffic online?  I'm not sure.    My Etsy shop is have a peak.  I have been a member (shopper) for years.  I only started listing stuff last month (Nov.08).

These little charm necklaces are decoupage images on glass baubles.  I use a silver bail to hang them on the ballchain.  I have them in my shop
