Cleaning up the shop

One thing is for sure..Carter is going to grow up learning about construction..painting/decorating and making jewelry!
(not necessarily in that order) LOL
Here we are in my salon..he is "helping" me wash windows ;)
I put his pack n play right in the doorway so he can see all the action..he is watching daddy on the backhoe, his latest favorite motorized thing!

I like helping Mommy!
Time out for a CHEEZ!

He is like a sponge these days imitating everything I do..he bent down to smell the flowers all on his own.... except he blows out and not in :)

And this is what he thought of them!
He points up when he hears an airplane...even when inside
I was taping off the door to paint it and he wanted the blue tape SO bad...he had watched me long enough to understand what I was doing so he would pull back the tape alittle bit and hand it to me!
Sorry I'm just amazed at all this new knowledge he is getting..

To all my hair clients..don't panic at these pictures..I know it looks like a mess still..but alot is going to happen over the next few days.

My wet station comes tomorrow..it was supposed to be here the 20th..I have not idea why and apparently neither does the shipping supervisor when I "asked" him that yesterday..

I had to get my feathers up with him alittle..but it is on its way (it better be for his sake)

Once the plumbers install it then I can start putting everything in.

I had issues with my phone number also..but I won't bore anyone with those detail..my new number is 323-HAIR..I'm excited about getting that..I can't believe it really..I tried to get HAIR back in 1989 but it wasn't available so I took CUTS..but finally I got it!

I have been touching up paint and cleaning..Chris has been doing the concrete parking and cleaning up the outside.

Tomorrow he still has alot to do for me inside..hanging some cabinets and shelves in the back room for one..stuff like that.

He has been a crazy man doing all that and going back and forth working on the other house he is building..it is in the finish stage also.

Just think next week he gets to "relax" and watch Carter for a few days..thats a piece of cake job..right Mother's?!?!

Anyway I have managed to make some new things..a couple are not listed yet but will be soon!

Call me!

My salon opens a week from today!
I thought I was going to get my old number which was
522-CUTS...but I got a better one
323-HAIR (4247)
(yes I have edited this post several times..but after spending an hour on the phone with Windstream...I know have the number I wanted..yea!

As you have noticed I have made alot of jewelry lately..but this week I will be out in my salon getting it ready!

I'll try to post pics and updates as the week goes on!

Oh and I am now on a new website also called ARTFIRE..I only have a few rings listed so far..I'll be adding more as I get time.

I'm going to try it for a month and see how it goes. Don't worry I'm not leaving Etsy I'm only listing things on Artfire that I can make more than one of. Etsy will have my one of a kind things on it!


Here are my latest listings!

A fun summer mix of beads!

This bracelet even surprised me how good it looks on!
I'm not much of a "red" girl but I think the contrast with the dot of patina green turquoise really does it for me!

3 New Pieces!

I was scrolling back through my sold items looking for something else and I came across this bracelet (well not this exact one but one like it)
It reminded me of how pretty it was..I sold it to one of my hair clients and she had it on the last time I saw her.
It always catches me by surprise when I see someone wearing something I made!
Anyway...I was happy to find as I checked to see if I had enough supplies to make another one...and I did so here it is!

2 Owls and a Flower

I really love these necklaces...they are going to be hard to give up!

This White Howlite Owl is the last one...and I can't find anymore white ones. I have been tempted to keep it every time I made one..but the temptation to list it overcomes me/ lucky for you!

I'm especially excited about this one..the pendant is exceptional and all the beads coordinated so perfect!

From Cruising to Walking!

Well its official little Carter boy is walking!

He has been "cruising" for months now...holding onto and pushing things then holding our hands..walking a few steps here and there.

Then on his 13 month birthday which was on the 13th of June (yes I'm alittle last posting this) he walked across the room..now each day he walks more and more ..today he sent from a sitting position straight up to walking ..and he sometimes giggles and makes funny faces and snorting along the way!

sometimes its hard to stop him! LOL

ut ut ut oh (thats how he says it)

And this was at his cousin Paige's graduation party on Sunday..its funny how kids gravitate together!
Notice Carter with the extension cord..his favorite type of toy..he can spot them anywhere!

You can call me for Appointments!

My salon is getting closer by the day..I am opening July 6th!

Chris is working so hard to get it done and although it may not look like it.. its right on schedule.
He works everyday on it..today he poured the concrete steps.

I sent out cards to all my hair clients..if you didn't receive yours please don't be offended..I sent one to everyone that I had an address for...and if you know someone who didn't get a card please let them know the details.

Please call me now to book your appointments for July..

You can call any day or time..if I don't answer leave a message and I will call you back.

I checked and I am going to get my old phone number back that I've had since 1989 so I am excited about that!

But for now I am using my home number until the salon is closer to being done.

Just email me if you need the number :)

Fun day in the playroom!

Awhile back I did a post about me working on Carters playroom
...I love this room, its my favorite room in the house. I honestly don't know what I would do without it.
Carter and I are in that room all the time. I sometimes refer to it as the padded room because I can let him go crazy there and not have to constantly be hovering over him..that is the most exhausting part of being a stay at home mom..being on guard all the time.
So now we took part of our sectional up in that room and I can actually sit and relax while he plays with his toys.
Probably another reason I love it is my bedroom growing up was shaped just like it with the slanted ceiling..ironic..and another reason I love it is you can hear the rain really well ;)

Anyway I finally got the stripes painted that I worked all winter long on taping off.
And I got the elephant decals up..I'd like to add more..maybe a firetruck, more animals and a little sports too.
It was funny as I was applying them..Carter grabbed a little toy and started rubbing the walls like I was..that stuff just amazes me!

Yet another Carter "cheez" face!

First of many times I'm sure to hold the camera out and take our own picture!
