Appointments, appointments and ...

more appointments for Olivia. I have been on soooo many appointments for my premature daughter than I have ever been on for myself. And last week, I did two appointments and sat in the hospital another hour for prescriptions. If it sounds like I'm complaining, I'm not. I am just telling the world about my adventures of being a new mom of a 23 week-er. She is a miracle and would not be here if it weren't for God and the Docs I see on the many appointment adventures I routinely truck around to!

Today, is the eye doctor to check to see if her eyes are continue to heal well, after the two surgeries and especially since she is still on oxygen. Then the 15th is the routine bi-weekly pediatrician appointment to check her weight gain and growth is on track.

In the midst of all of this and late night feeding, I still manage to make earrings, isn't that amazing?!

Today, I'm featuring 4 pair of earrings (#28, 27, 26 & 25) that are currently in my store...all are hoop earrings, very easy to make.

But for now these are the earrings...

Today's features...

Ok, I've been doing this all wrong. I've been counting days instead of number of earrings or maybe I've been doing both not sure. I've decided to just count earrings. It's not 90 days of earrings, it's just 90 pairs of earrings by years end. So that puts at #37, 36 and 35. I hope I don't duplicate any pair of earrings.

Featured today...#38, #39 and #40

Oops I did a boo-boo twice. I featured two separate pair of earrings twice and no one called me on it! That was nice of you all.

So, today I am featuring three pairs of earrings, two fairy blossoms and one pair of the hoops.
This makes earrings #40, #39 and #38

I've been a busy bee...

I wanted to do something different with these lampwork beads so I made these too cute triangle earrings. The colors are beautiful.

Jade Scott Enameled Flower Challenge

It involves these beautiful colorful enameled flower headpins by Jade Scott. Seven of us was chosen by Lorelei (whom makes eight). We are to use the whole flower including the bezel.

Well, I was so excited to have my flower chose me! I loved the colors of these wonderful blooms and if anyone knows I LOVE flowers and color. So this challenge was right up my alley. My flower was of purple, green with hints of yellow and pink. I tried my bless to incorporate all the colors in this piece. 

I could not make up my mind what I wanted to make and earring was out of the question. I only had one, though that isn't a reason to not make earrings, I wasn't feelin' it. Bracelet and a ring crossed my mind but Lorelei did a ring so no. But now that I think about it a bracelet would have been different but maybe I'll buy a couple of flowers and see what I an do.

But all that to display what I did come up with...a choker and a pair of my Blossom Fairies earrings to match.

This is also day #43 of my 90 days of earrings

Please visit the other blogs to see what the others came up with for these lovely flowers. I was unable to get links for two of the participants so please visit Lorelei's blog to see the complete list.

Today's Featured Earrings...#45

Today was fun at work. As you may know I work at the Joann Fabrics in Novi, MI. Though it was busy we (the employees) were enjoying each other and helping the past along in a wonderful way. The ill manner guests did not matter, actually I don't even remember them, that's just how good the day was...AWESOME! There is more tomorrow. lol

More Blossom Fairies....

Pink and pretty, very beautiful earrings. I love making these, the colors are bright, bold and fun!
It's going to only get better because my ideas continue to  evolve the more I make these wonderful earrings....

Gobble til U Wobble...

Happy Turkey Day!

I am so thankful for all the many many blessings God has placed in my life. I sit and wonder how and why does he do the things he does for me.

This year has been hard for me. I always wanted more than one child and I always wanted them two years apart. I didn't think I would have another child let alone so soon especially since I broke up with my son's Dad. But God decided to answer one of my life long wants and I became pregnant with Olivia last December, went on bedrest in April @ 20 weeks pregnant, had her @ the  23-4/7 week mark. She was in the hospital for 5months 5 weeks and home now on oxygen and thriving. Her brother, whom is 2-1/2, kisses her every morning though he gets jealous when I'm holding her but for the more part is happy to have a sister.

So this year is an awesome time for me. I have both of my children with me...yay!


Now for the Featured earrings for today

Featured earrings...Day #48

I love this color combo as you can see. I'm posting this pair and the other pair of green flowers to go. I want to make more flowers but I also want to move on to something new. I wonder if I actually will....we shall see!

Featured earrings....Day #49

More of the green and yellow earrings I was stuck on making...lol! I'm so tired of this color it ain't funny and I think I got one more pair to post.

I love the flowers but I'm tring to more past them and the hoops. I want to try some other type of skills when it comes to my earrings.

Earrings of the Day...#51 and #50

As I have mentioned before, I absolutely LOVE these flower beads made of Lucite beads. I have to be honest, though I bought these at one of my area bead stores, I fell in love with these when I seen artists on etsy make earrings out of these. I've tried so hard to not make earrings just like those already sold on etsy but it's hard to not draw ideas from those.

I'm hoping that my creations are as moving as the ones that inspired me.

Earrings #51

The earrings pictured below are one of the four I discussed yesterday.

Featured earrings...Day #52

I enjoyed making these wonderful green earrings. When I sit down to make these, I sometimes get overwhelmed with the color choices. And then I ask myself should the earrings be dangles, hoops and/ or chandeliers. I made 4 pair of green earrings similar to these featured today. I was going to put them all in one earring but realized it was a bit too much, so I made individual earrings.

Anyway, I love the lucite flowers. And I will absolutely continue to make them in the future. I hope you enjoy today's earrings.

Today's earrings day #54

Posting these Tassels for today. I have got to take pictures of my eaarings that I made these past few days. I need a new light box. I'm tired of taking pictures at work, they aren't as nice as they use to be (at least I don't think so).

Demo Bracelets + Today's Earrings

Demo Bracelets
I did two demos on Saturday, November 5th, but I did not get a chance to post the pictures. The bracelets turned out better than I expected. I plan to remake these in my own version.

Today's earrings are pair numbered 57, 56 and 55.  I guess I was really feeling the black. These turned out very cool.
