I got a pretty fantastic gift this year on Christmas Eve....Cory proposed and gave me this dazzling ring!!!!!! I cannot stop staring down at my finger, it's almost embarrassing. I have to say being engaged to Cory & having a rock on my left hand has made me pretty giddy indeed ♥

I just had to share this beautiful video I saw over on Rockstar Diaries today. I worked this past weekend and had a replacement day to use this week - I decided that day was today! I have a long holiday to-do list...but the sun is shining & I had bowl of hearty oatmeal for breakfast, along with some earl grey tea. I am ready to rock this to-do list! I will be back later today to share some photos of my accomplishments ;)

|*estate sale necklace - sneak peak at my shop*|
My laptop has been knocked around a bit and finally, the worst of the worst happened - dead hard drive. And worst of all to say, not backed up. It's a pretty major loss. Only days before that, the screen on my cell phone went out completely & had to be replaced (18 days before I was due for an upgrade, of course). And the heater in my car is blowing out cold air...not kidding. Why when it rains must it pour?
I am so thankful for the photos I put up on flickr and here on the old blog as well. To think about all the inspiration I had gathered and was saving...all the awesome downloads & tutorials....my mind reels. But I guess a fresh start is necessary every once in a while, so I'm trying to make the best of it. It will be just a little while before my hard drive is replaced so I will be pretty scarce around here.
But I did want to share something lovely that has been happening around here lately...my preparations to open my very own etsy shop!!! I decided that I would sell only things that I love and would buy myself and that I would try to support as many other etsy sellers as possible in building my business. That means buying supplies from various etsy sellers; everything from product packaging to charms and what's in between (like felt and fabric and beautiful beads)! And my suppliers come from all over - some within the state and some across oceans! I'm working on building a (rather small) inventory and am having a total blast! So stay tuned for more...I'll be back! ♥
