Old School Monogram

Let me start by saying that I don't know if I've ever owned anything monogrammed in my life. But my college roommate did. And while I still don't think I'd go out and get my towels monogrammed, I will totally wear my initials on this necklace! Or, get creative - get your kids initials with your last name as the larger middle initial, or grandkids, or anniversary date with two initials on either side - think custom! I gotta tell you - I love doing custom work. I like hearing the stories of who it's for and why. It makes it so special knowing who it's for as I make it. You can check out my custom page on my web site But you are getting a preview of this necklace because it's not even on my website yet. Just e-mail me if you want it!! :)

I've got to toot her horn!

You've probably seen my previous posts with pictures from my full day photo shoot. Well, a couple of months have passed and I am still in love! I look through the pictures almost every day. Quite a testament to the photographer Casey Woods Maddeux. Check her out at Here Haley and Kristin are showing off the Square Resin Necklace and the Giant Round Resin Necklace. I am crazy for all of the "circus tent" pictures - I'll have to post more soon! Anyway, they are fun and playful and everything I wanted.

Introducing Miss Sally Sunshine!

For those of you keeping up with the goings on at metalsgirl studio/rest of my life you probably remember Chia, my cutie pie foster with the bad case of mange. Well she is practically all better and looking GORGEOUS! A few days after we rescued her from the shelter her little sister made her way to the very same shelter. She was brought in by someone who found her in the exact same spot Chia had been found. Now we couldn't leave her there, could we?! So now we have Chia and her sister Sally! They are too adorable! Sally is a little bit smaller with more white in her fur but they are equal parts cute, sweet, and playful! Makes you just want to Kiss 'em!

Ooh la la!

I've been super duper busy lately, which is wonderful, but sometimes it makes it hard to come up with new designs. So a few months back I had a customer wanting a kinda specific design on a pair of earrings. We talked it through and together came up with these! Although hers were fuschia and lime green (real cute!). I loved them so much I decided they needed to become part of my repritoire! :) So here you go, coming soon to You saw it here first folks! The new "multi dotted hoops"! Love 'em!

And the winner is...

BRIT! The black, celery green, white, and red look fantastic together!! I actually just put the top coat of clear resin on this it's just started the drying process on one of my resin boards.

The black has no herb, the celery green has nutmeg for health and change, the white has sprigs of thyme for cleansing and clearing, and the red has a pinch of cloves for love and protection.

I want to thank all of you for participating in my little challenge. It was so cool to see all of your creative color choices. You guys Rock! I know I'm going to put several of them to use. Stay tuned for more photos ...

It's my Party and I'll Nap if I want to...

So today was my birthday! And while I'm not so thrilled with turning another year older I do have to admit I enjoy the idea of the birthday. Not so much the spectacle kind of birthday, more the do-whatever-you-want kind of birthday. So, I slept in, had a yummy brunch at my parents, opened presents, and then took a long, decadent, two hour nap! It was heavenly! That's the thing about birthdays, you do tend to think a bit about's sure a good thing to be able to truly enjoy something as simple as a nap.
