WOW Time Flies

Yesterday was Christmas and today it is nearly Valentines Day.  I hope each and everyone get a box full of beautiful and loving cards.  I use to love Valentines Day in school, because when it was art time we got to make Valentine Mail Boxes, it my day we used lots of crepe paper and construction paper and cut out hearts for 2 weeks.  When I was teaching school I got the students in my class cigar boxes and we covered them in contact paper and they cut hearts, cars, lightening bolts and everything else you could think of to decorate their boxes for 2 weeks.

Well January came and went on roller skates without to much fan fare.  But I got a sale on my Handmade Artist Shop Lady Faith Jewelry.  Alix from The Alchemist Vessel bought my "It Turns Necklace".

Quoting Alix here is what she said about the pendant it is a real honor that she bought the pendant to honor her father.  I ask for a picture of her wearing the necklace to put in here but after she sent it to me I couldn't up load it here because I had not taken the picture or I don't know enough about what I am doing but I am going give you the direct quote about her feelings on the necklace.

This piece spoke to me, in fact it just screamed "BUY ME!" from the moment I saw it in Lady Faith's Shop on handmade artist.  Featured in a blog post of my own, two of my friends mentioned that the necklace was very me. They were right.  Too cute to pass up, this is a unique and fun piece to wear.  I constantly fiddle with my jewelry and this makes fiddling worth the effort, all the parts move individually, the propeller spins, the gear and cog turn and the copper star is bright and shiny.  I have a serious penchant for all things airplane.  Propellers, gears, gauges, they fascinate me.  My father was a pilot during the Korean War, I wore his Captain Bars in High school, and this piece is worn to honor him.  I could not have found a better piece to express that.

Alix also makes beautiful jewelry and if you read this and have the time here is a link to her shop:

There are also many beautiful treasures on the Hand Made for everyone to enjoy:

I hope each of you visit and enjoy all the wonderful artists that are selling there.  I know I enjoy being in the group.  It is a great bunch of people.
