life

Ello' there!

I'm busy busy busy over here in our little home by the sea. I've got jewelry orders rolling in left and right,(and thank you very much for that because it makes me feel like a supa star), and a little trip to Utah for the Casual Blogger Conference this weekend where I will be speaking on niche blogging (whatever that means, I can't believe I actually fooled people, adults!, into thinking I know what I'm talking about) and there's always the babies to keep me hopping. By the way, why am I not losing any weight with all the running around I do? Riddle me that!

Secondsister Summer collection will hit the shop on June 1st. It's a rather small collection but what can you expect from the woman who lives in a shoe? I nearly didn't have a Summer collection at all. I know. Can you even imagine?

And then there's Finnigan Seamus. Finnigan, Finnigan, Finnigan. Whatever will we do with him? He's been so naughty these last few days and he has the gall to look me smugly in the eye even as he reeks of deviant deeds involving the trash. And why, oh why was the trash left to his leisure? And please do tell me why he insists on sleeping by my side of the bed so that the pungent smell of sour waste wafts my way all the live long night. Where's the justice in this life I'm living?

But I digress. Here's a little peek into what's to come. I finally decided to bow to the recession, that pesky damn recession, and design some pieces that are easy on the pocketbook. If we are all going to be poor, at least we should look good don't you think?

I love the new line. The other day I wore my mermaid earrings to my son's baseball game and saw one of my friends (Laura) and she looked at my earrings and said, "Second Sister?"

You're becoming a household name, you see.

I won a weekend ticket to the CBC but hadn't planned on going because of my 3 kids that sort of need a mom. But now that I know you'll be there, that's going to change. Mom Shmom.

The pieces are just lovely. They certainly don't look like pauper's jewelry.

You make me laugh with the "woman who lives in a shoe" remark.

I don't normally comment, but I can't keep silent. Your tag "stinky dogs and husbands who don't put the lid on the trash can" is flat out libelous. Demand is hereby made that it be immediately removed.
