The Low Down,....

The 'emotions' roller-coaster was in full swing last week. 

From sad things to happy things, here's a little run down and also a gesture of appreciation for you at the end of this post!
 
 
  • A childhood friend was laid to rest.  (this was the sad/sucky part!)
RIP My Friend - See Ya On The Other Side!

  • Had a bead magazine ask for an article from me for publication in 2013! (Woo-Hoo!!)
  • Found out some various designs I submitted were accepted by a couple of bead magazines (double woo-hoo!)
  • Saved a turtle who decided to venture out of 'lake-land' into the "asphalt jungle". (feel good kind of thing!)
 
He's cute, isn't he?!
 
  • Created Jewelry to submit to more magazines and to put in a boutique. (fun part - but I can't show you anything yet!)
  •  
  • Listened to the adventures the Hubby and Son had while camping this weekend: torrential rains, held baby horny toads, almost broke a bridge by crossing it, chased by a swarm of bees and stung (hubby!), hit a tree head on,...with his motorbike and his head (again - Hubby!), heard bears, found gorgeous crystals and fossilized shells, helped a stranded motorist, returned some one's lost phone, saw a gorgeous rainbow, and got pictures of none of the above! (they ARE the reason I have so many wrinkles and why I twirl my hair with both hands at the same time!! Actually - more Hubby than Son - Son's the responsible one!)
 
Partner's in Crime!

 
 
  • Had an awesome massage!(Thanks Debbie!)
  • Cleaned the house, did laundry, got groceries. (nothing new there!)
  • Stopped by Creative U and got my Creative Fix (and some supplies!) and chatted with friends!
 
Hanging with Jen @ Creative U
 
  • Filled orders and shipped stuff (thank you to all my wonderful clients - you rock!)
There's lots of other things too, but this is plenty to list for now!
 
I wanted to spread some love around by having a sale over on my MiShel Designs Etsy site from now until September 7th, 2012.  
 
 
 
 
 
When you use coupon code ENDOFSUMMER45 upon check out with Etsy, you will save 45% off your total order!
 
The reason I'm having a sale this huge is because I'm clearing out my inventory to make room for some new jewelry designs coming in October.
 
The other reason for the sale is that I'll be shutting down both of my shops from the 8th of September thru the 30th of September while I'm away on vacation (more details on that later next week!).
 
Hint: There's a Roman Aqueduct where I'm going!
 
The sale is only good in my MiShel Designs shop, not my Shel's Jewelry Supplies shop.(Sorry about that, but I've got my findings priced as low as I can possibly go right now.)
 
So, what kinds of things have been going on in your life lately?  Any stories to share?

I'm going to be having a little give-a-way, sharing some jewelry pics and putting up another little tutorial here on the blog this week.  (At least that's the plan anyway - wish me luck!)

So, stay tuned and have a great Monday!!
 
 
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Hair Twirling!
Cheers,
~Shel~

  1. Oh goodness I don't even know what to say except congratulations on your magazine submissions, and I'm glad you survived the emotional rollercoaster--at least up to this point.

    I hope this week is a bit calmer!
