A few of the goodies I have been making!

It took me a lot longer to upload all my new products than I thought it would. I began designing and creating these items in March and it has taken until now for me to get them on the site but here they are. I have a collection of pendants that are little works of art. Some of the designs are collage work under crystals and some are on bamboo tiles. I have a lot more that I am working on but this is the first batch. Check out the Soul of the Rose Jewelry Designs on the site for each individual design and for prices.

Revolutionary Collection

I made these little black and red crystal charm pendants and Nina and I decided they reminded us of the musical Les Miserables so I named each pendant after one of the female characters in the musical - how funny! We thought it was coincidental that Fantine should have a black ribbon because she just gets one song and dies at the beginning of the musical. If you don’t know this musical then the humor is totally lost but I hope you still like this collection!

Ok here goes – I am getting old. I don’t want to Tweet. I don’t want to be hyper-connected to my friends and I don’t wish that on my friends from me. No offence but I don’t want to know that Tiffany is walking the dog, hell, I don’t even want to know that Ashton Krutcher is washing his face or falling asleep watching a movie. Wow, that really sounds old – but I think he likes old chicks anyway.

Twitter, how much can we take? I’ll be honest, it is all I can do to run the web boutique, manage my other job, try to create goodies for the store, check in on Facebook and upload a blog post in between life. And can I just say that all of this activity has helped tremendously with excuses for why I don’t have time to cook dinner! But I really think I draw the line at Twitter. What sort of things would I Tweet anyway???

Just ate 5 cookies!

Am watching Godfather for the 1 millionth time.

Am cleaning cat barf yet again

It is not that my life is not interesting to me, I just don’t think that what can be said in a tweet can be that interesting to others. Ok some things could be great tweets I admit:

Just won Nobel Peace Prize!

Have finally lost those 100 lbs I was worried about

So that is what an orgasm is!

Now that would be interesting stuff, but until I can produce a stream of these types of riveting tweets consistently I am not going to sign up for twitter. And that is my final word – for now.
