A little green with envy....

A little bit jet lagged still from a quick hop over the pond to premiere my collection of beads that are exclusive to Create and Craft (I'll post soon!).  I had loads of errands to run yesterday and the cool crisp weather is perfect to wear my favorite plaid flannel shirt.  I paired it with a couple of my newest Janie Lane jewelry pieces, grabbed my calendar and headed out the door.  

I couldn't help but stop and take in the wonderful colours we are having here in Southern MO, especially since we've had such a drought and a lot of the trees took it really hard....

above is the view in our yard....

The turn of the century mill along the Finley River in Ozark, MO

I love old bridges!

And during one of my errand stops....I sold the jewelry right off my neck!! :)

I won't get a chance to breathe any time soon.  Every weekend from now till the middle of December I have something planned!!  I'm very excited about it really and it's all fun and creative.  

My latest piece I've named "Green with Envy".  I'm not sure why...but the luscious rich green tones really spoke to me.  I've also paired it with some gorgeous autumn coloured faceted beads and strung it on hand dyed silk.  I do believe that when you wear it, your friends will be green with envy.

Couple of quick updates...If you live in the Springfield, MO and surrounding area (or even if you wanna make a road trip towards Branson, which is a great time of year to visit, by the way) mark your calendars for Friday October 26th.  Get a babysitter...have the hubby watch the kids...whatever you have to do so you don't miss The GIRLS NIGHT OUT WINE, CHEESE and TRUNK SHOW at RESTORE in Nixa, MO.  From 6-8pm we'll be having some fun girl time, shopping and sipping wine and eating delicious cheeses.  

Christine from RESTORE also will be featuring some great one of a kind vintage pieces of shabby chic furniture, you can also see all sorts of artwork from local artists in the area.  It should be a grand time!!!

Then coming the 2nd weekend in November, I'll be doing my first ever VINTAGE MARKET in Billings, MO as part of Phoene's Vintage Market.  I am so excited to not only share my Janie Lane Collection, but also an eclectic mix of unusual vintage finds that I've been collected on my dumpster diving excursions.  I am soo excited to be a part of this vintage market...it's totally me...totally fun...and gives me an outlet for my diving-slash-hording-junk addiction!

Craft on!

It feels like FALL!!!!

Although I don't like the misty rain that has with the weather, I am totally loving the cold weather!  It certainly felt like Fall today at the craft show.

Tomorrow is supposed to be 29 degrees in the morning and frost!! YIKES!!!

I'll be back at the Ozark Craft show tomorrow demonstrating jewelry making and helping the kids sell their pupcakes..! Maybe I should consider selling hand warmers - I hope my fingers work!

PS - Just came home at it's 58 degreess...hubby is complaining that the house is cold and said..I feel like I should be at the football game as cold as it is in here..ME:  Well...isn't that the idea?

Happy Fall Everyone,

Faith, Hope, Courage and Love - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

When I was growing up, my favorite color was pink.  I love pink, everything is pretty in Pink!  Pink also has a very different meaning to me now.  It's bittersweet.

October is breast cancer awareness month and it was 4 years ago that my mother was officially diagnosed.  She fought long and hard but unfortunately the cancer won in the end.  It's a sad story. But it's not a hopeless one.

Everyday women are diagnosed or fight for their life because of breast cancer.  The biggest gift you can give yourself and your loved ones is to have regular screenings and mammograms.  I dreaded having my first one...but it really wasn't all that bad.  If found soon, the success rates are high!

So in memory of those we have lost, and to give courage, strength, hope, love and friendship to those who are still fighting and a huge CHEER for those in remission, I created these pendants.

Even if you have never had cancer personally, I'm certain you  know someone who has, a friend, a mother, a child, a grandmother.  Let's never forget the fight they are facing and keep reassuring them with love and laughter.

These pendants can be purchased for $10 postage paid by clicking the BUY NOW button below and please choose your sentiment:

Mom, daughter, friend, grandma, hope, courage, strength, survivor

Select Sentiment
