I came across a website that will allow me to publish a newsletter for free. So I'm thinking - why not give it a try if it's free. Sooooooo, if you are interested in following my jewelry business and get some "newsletter only" specials just sign up for Caty Ann's Creations Newsletter here. I will probably start out with a quarterly newsletter and see what response I get and go to a bi-monthly or maybe even monthly newsletter later on.

Let me know what you think :)

Just a quick note - I saw my Oncologist yesterday for my 3-month checkup and she says I am doing great! I don't have to go back again for SIX months!!!

One More to go

Finally - another somewhat successful show yesterday!! It was the Annual Christmas Craft Show and House Walk at the Fairview Elementary School in Sherwood OH. It was a lot of fun and very busy. I even got to see a few old friends I haven't seen in years and make a few new friends too!

Here are some pics I took...

I planned on this being the last show of the year. However, someone we met at the Angola show a few weeks ago called and asked if Edna and I would like to set up at a small show at the Angola VFW on the 19th of December. So....we decided, what the heck, might as well do one more!

Now I will have to make some more pieces over the next couple of weeks to "restock".

It is sunny and cold in NW Ohio this morning - what a beautiful day!!! Hope everyone is enjoying the day!!

Busy Beader...

Whew!! I've been a busy beader!!! Trying to get some new products ready before the next show this weekend.

This piece was my first attempt at wireworking. I call it Serpentine Splendor.

This is one of the longer necklaces I have designed. I knew as soon as I saw the clear glass pendant with waves of blues and turquoise how I wanted to use it. This is Tropical Waves.

The pink beads and gunmetal heart pendant were given to me by my Mother-in-law. I think the beads are lace agate and I accented them with quartz beads and call this one Frosty Pink.

That's it for tonight - I'm off to slumber land!
