    A few weeks ago I went to a wedding open house for local brides looking for ideas in planning their wedding. I was among caterers, makeup artists, bartenders and decorators. I was so honored to be at this event and meet some brides looking for jewelry for their bridesmaids. In the near future

    Tuesday Tutorial: Dangle Fabric-Covered Button Earrings

    Last week I participated in the month of crafts that Megan at Brassy Apple was hosting. She had a whole month full of crafty goodness! Want to see what I created to share on her blog?

    ACD Celebrity Sighting

This past week while I was out on vacation my bestie (who also loves Tenley) told me that Tenley was wearing her ACD necklace in the video she and Kiptyn posted reviewing Bachelor Pad and also on a picture she posted on her facebook…
