Hello all. I'm currently numb and reeling from another housing dissapointment. This time the bank took TWO MONTHS to decide that, no, they don't want to sell for the price the homeowner approved and is competitive. Sigh, I really liked this house too..... But alas. We pick ourselves up, finish our package of chocolate covered gummy bears, and move on. My agent has bowed out of the biz, so we will be working with a full-time real estate guy now and hopefully he can help us get things rolling in our favor.

I have been able to get both little tykes down for naps in the afternoon lately, and I've had a few Etsy sales that have motivated me to start working of Jewelry again. Here is a prototype--the design works but wasn't quite what I was looking for, but I finished a second one and will list them at a discounted prototype rate. I don't bother with beads when I am testing designs.

If you would enjoy a pair of earrings I've done, please check out my Giveaway! Just leave a comment on the original post. I'll draw a name on November 1st. Of course, you are invited to comment any time. It delights me.

I'm sorry to read of your disappointing news. I hope all works out well for you in the end. I love your new earring design!

I'm sorry about the house! Things DO often turn out well in the end, it's just that the middle part when things are SO messy can be VERY frustrating... I'm glad you were able to find some solace in your... CHOCOLATE COVERED GUMMY BEARS????? Really? I guess I'm a purist who can only find comfort in solid milk chocolate. :)

Beads or no beads, that is a VERY PRETTY DESIGN to add to your line of earrings!!

PS As someone who used to successfully sell real estate, I must say that having a good agent makes things go so much more smoothly. Get the right person and you will reach your goal. Good luck!

I came to say... "Chocolate covered gummy bears?!?" but looks like sewmuchfun4 beat me to it. Also, I think those earrings look great. I may have to go and get some findings so I can try my hand at making them.

Good luck with your housing situation.

Sorry, adding to my earlier comment.

Do you sell the patterns or just the finished article?

I love chocolate; so much so that my one wall is painted a yummy milk chocolate. The room colors are the same as Tiffany's boxes ~ blue and brown. Chocolate Gummy Bears! Yum.

OH how spirit lowering, frustrating, house-buying news! Major bummer; I'm so sorry. I remember having all sorts of angst when we bought the ranch ~ and it was just a little house, nothing special ~ basic ranch style. But the people tried to back out and get our 16,000 earnest money; we had to get a lawyer. Then because it was rented we had to get the Sheriff's office to evict the week end owners. I was about to tear my hair out! Anyway, I'm so sorry.
I hope the little remembrance s of some cheer. hugs, Bev

Hello "M"!

I only sell the finished article, I have thought of offering patterns but that's as far as I've gotten with it lol/

And you ALL need to try the gummy bears. For real.

Oh, sorry to hear about the house. But I do like that earring design!
