Remembering a cherished pet...

In the last year, I've noticed a trend in some of my custom orders; many people are purchasing a personalized bracelet or key chain to commemorate someone (or a furry friend) they've loved and lost.  I've designed some new pieces along that line focusing on pets in hopes of making that time a little easier.

I've also created a Pet Memorial Gift Pack that contains the key chain and ornament together.  Makes a great gift.  More new designs soon!

Pictures of my new studio and a new charts to boot!

Well, if you've been following, you know that I moved recently and have been trying to get my new studio in order.  Finally took a picture today, and mind you, this is only about 1/5 of the space I have, but just being able to look around and see something other than hard core clutter really helps my creativity blossom.  Here's a picture of where I do my hammering.  The lights look like they want to attack me, don't they?

I'm a lefty, so all of my tools and findings are on the left side.  Here's a close up:

See my pretty entry way?  That's actual sunshine coming through the front door!  Those 6 stamp sets in the bottom of the picture are about 1/2 of what I actually have.  Here are more with some design stamps.

I've redone my design chart again to add a few more!  I'm up to 108!

And finally created a font chart.  'Bout time, huh?  It isn't perfect, but it'll do for now.

Stay tuned for some new designs.  I've been having a lot of fun in my new space!
