A GIVEAWAY: 500 Blogposts & I’m Retired!


Big News: Today I am celebrating my 500th Blog Post! It is quite incredible to realize that I have practically written a book, 500 pages, one page at a time! Mostly on my phone and usually between 5am and 8 am. Thank you for following my blog and being there for me! I am going to celebrate with a giveaway!!!

I have other news, I am retiring!

Yup! You may or may not know that over the past three and a half years I worked a full time job as Marketing Director ( the past six months, I reduced my hours). My goal has been to work my jewelry business full time for quite some time and today I am celebrating the first day on the job!

My first meeting is in a few minutes, my attire will be pj’s and I will be attending by myself! But it is an important meeting, I will be planning my business strategy! I have so many ideas and concepts that I have not been able to develop, so I am truly excited!

Back to the giveaway!!

Giveaway No. 1 is a pair of earrings from my Creative Co-op Collection.


Giveaway No.2 is a funky key necklace from my Creative Co-op Collection!


This is one of my favorites!
