where the heck have I been?

I started working at a pre school two weeks ago. I have the two year old class. Everyday I come home with a new sauce on my pants and crackers in my hair...I still have my other job so working at the pre-school makes two jobs. So as you can guess I have been exhausted! But the dreamer never stops dreaming and the creative spirit never stops creating. In between the cracks and crevices of time I have taken on a new project in my jewelry making journey...metal stamping.

I bought a kit to begin stamping on silver and copper discs and I absolutely LOVE it! here is a very amateur picture of a pendant I made for my cousin who came to visit me from Puerto Rico. I plan on using different styles of fonts and adding birth stones to the pendants...They will come in copper or silver.

Whaddya think, not bad for my first try,,,well, atleast I think
so ;)

On a second note I am honored to have seen a comment from Marisol of Wink Artisans on my blog post about Latina jewelry artists. Her work is fantastic and inspiring, Marisol and thank you for following my blog!!

I love handmade jewelry and I'll bet it's a wonderful creative outlet for you (particularly after a day with 2-yr-olds - LOL).

Hope you have a wonderful and creative day (visiting from SITS)
