Handmade by Me!
Did you know that “artisan” is just a fancy word for “hand crafted”? I’ve been making jewelry for several years now. That was one of the reasons I was drawn to a new Michaels over two years ago. I kept driving past the doors watching for a sign telling when it was to open. One day there was a sign that said “Now Hiring”. They were conducting interviews on the spot that day. It must have been kismet! I got the job, which included a 25% employee discount. Within 6 weeks I was promoted to Price Integrity Coordinator. After another few months, I was promoted again to Event Coordinator. I was in charge of the initial interviewing of class instructors. Can you guess who made got the Jewelry Instructor position? ME!
I miss the employee discount now that I no longer work there, but I’ve learned how to watch the sales and coupons. There are some good coupons this weekend. Today only there’s a 15% off entire purchase, including sale items. Tomorrow only there’s a 30% off entire purchase, excluding sale items. That’s where we’re headed today before the movie theater. ;->

As a woman with many interests and hobbies, I tend to let some things simmer and collect a little dust. Recently, I decided to brush away the cobwebs and dive back into jewelry making! The pieces shown here are my latest creations. The bonus: combining jewelry making with photography! Be still my heart!
