Think Spring!

Well maybe it is still a little early but these earrings make me think of spring.These are a newly listed version of the same design we have in purple too.
Yes it is a mouthful but I have a theory that having all these descriptive words in the title helps stuff get found in the Google search.
The pictures came out well and then I just clicked on the auto contrast/color enhancement button for photoshop and it really sharpened the whole thing in that top picture. The one below didn't quite come out as well.

New banner,new shawl pin and valentines candy

Today we finally changed the banner for our Etsy shop. We have been using the same one since we started the shop in May of '06. Our pictures were crappier back then and the items we had featured aren't particularly big sellers now. So it was time for a change. I'm pretty happy with this new design. It has a nice fresh spring feel to it. Unfortuantely Shipwrecked Beads (my main source for the glass beads)seems to be out of those exact same color green glass leaves that are on the pink flower earrings in the banner but I've got something close that I'll be able to use in the future.

I just listed today this new shawl pin design. It may look familiar because it is a variation on my Dancing Swirls Sterling Silver Earrings. This is the Dancing Swirls Light Weight Aluminum Shawl Pin

On to the cute kids...
Iraqi voter or sticky nasty blue candy eater?

Wild sugar high.
Henry methodically examines his Valentine's Day booty from the school party yesterday while Max sits back and takes it all in.Luckily for me they have more of an interest in the disgusting junky candy than the chocolates. So I got the chocolate.

Facebook Fun

We've been wasting a lot of time lately hanging out and catching up with old friends and family on Facebook. It's been fun and huge time sucker. We also have a Facebook business page for our jewelry. It is Nicholas and Felice. (What a surprise-eh?)
Here is a link to the page:
We've had it for a while but I was never able to get our Etsy "Mini" up there. Finally we got some great instructions and now have a nice big Etsy Mini gallery on our Facebook business page. When time allows I'll be updating it. Especially when we add new products which doesn't seem to be happening very much lately. But it will!
So if you are on Facebook give it a look and become a "fan".
And here are a couple of pictures of my boys just to add some cuteness to this post:
