core samples

Can I just say that this week is going by waaaaay too fast? Jeff and I are moving in about ten days and we are nowhere near ready! Sure, we have like six boxes in our apartment, but they're pretty much all empty, and the ones that are packed Jeff took care of. I have been busy busy busy making things for the two shows that I have coming up at the end of November and beginning of December (check out the sidebar for more information about Sadie holiday events). Part of my pre-holiday updates included adding new silver dipped amethyst core samples to the Sadie shop, including a listing for a special deal on two amethyst core sample necklaces. This evening I just wanted to share a couple of photos with you of these new pieces. I'm really happy with the way the top image turned out. It's given me some inspiration for how to set up my displays at Portobello West and Got Craft.

Oh, and I picked up Mindy Kaling's new book (normally I'd get it at the library, but I'm kind of boycotting the Vancouver library right now because they keep finding bedbugs in their books!!!) and I'm really enjoying reading it everyday during my seabus commute. My favourite line so far:

There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.

So true. Have a great week, everyone!

  3. Oh my, these are just amazing!
    Fingers crossed I can gift some for Christmas.

  4. Man, these are gorgeous! & that is SO true! Haha...sometimes. Work days, don't wake me. If I'm on a trip I'll be up before the sun usually out of excitement. =)

  5. Lost Cabin Vintage: Thanks! I love that quote, too!

    LC: Thank you!

    Rachel Louisa: Thanks! Let me know if I can help you find a particular type of stone. :)

    Cal: Thanks! You are nuts! I try very hard to not get up before the sun. Sadly, living so far north at this time of year makes that pretty hard. I totally go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. And I only work an 8 hour day!

  6. wow these are so gorgeous! i want them all!
