I Have an Addiction

I have an addition. I'm not afraid to admit it, nor am I in denial about it. Obviously, this addiction is not to blogging! I am a habitual non-blogger. Possibly if there was a few more hours in the day I might blog a little more often.....but the magic eight ball is telling me 'not a chance'!

Anyway, back to my addition. It consumes about 95% of my time. The other 5% I use to sleep. I just can't help myself, and there is no 800 number to call or sponsors to lean on. Whenever I see that glorious sparkle or get in a new shipment it's like being in heaven. I can get lost in all those little moments of feeling wonderful!

It's not as bad as you may think. Sure, it's costly and I've given up a lot to support my habit. But I know I'm not the only one out there. That's comforting. To have others who share your goals and ambitions, they have the same addiction!

It's not drugs or alcohol, but it feels like it sometimes. Anything that sparkles with beautiful color brings on that urge....the urge to create!
Especially if it's from Swarovski. Beautiful, glorious crystals! I have to create a bracelet or necklace, maybe even some earrings or a matching set. I must weave the beads together or I go mad!

Ha! And you all thought I was on drugs :)

Check out some of my newest creations on ArtFire, the hottest place to be if you have the addiction of creation!

A New addition To the Ribbon Hearts

Due to the many requests I have received for a Yellow Ribbon Heart, I finally gave in and here it is!

It's quite pretty! The Yellow Ribbon symbolizes our support for the men and women serving in the Armed Forces to keep this country safe. God Bless Them!!

You can click on the title or the picture for more information on purchasing one. Thank you!

Ovarian & Breast Cancer Awareness

As you can see, I'm not much of a 'blogger'. But I feel this is a very blog worthy topic. I have recently begun to make Swarovski Crystal Puffy Hearts with a pink or teal colored ribbon design. Each color represents Breast Cancer Awareness and Ovarian Cancer Awareness respectively.

Hundreds of women each and every year struggle to fight and survive these illnesses. Many do not survive. No, I do not have cancer in case you were wondering. But I watched some people very important people in my life fight and die from cancer.

I want to do something about it! So I have decided to make these Swarovski hearts bearing the ribbons. I will be donating all profits made from the sale of these hearts to cancer research. I am currently working on building a webpage dedicated to the progress of the sales and donation amounts and I will post a link as soon as it is complete.

So PLEASE, if you know of anyone who would be interested in purchasing or helping with any aspect of this fund raising venture share this blog with them. Or send me an email to;

You can also click on the pictures above to view the hearts and purchase if you choose to help support a very worthy cause. Thank you very much for your time!
