Hello all it's me Stacey!
Monday, December 28, 2009
It is always nice to be able to say that the holidays went smoothly!, I know Stacey is happy, she got A LOT of craft stuff :) Today was the day for us to get back into the swing of things, we took a little Etsy break and we are excited to be back! "getting my groove" back has been a little rough, I need a better routine. I am not sure if everyone knows but Stacey and I live about an hour apart and working together gets a little tricky sometimes!
We are excited for this weekend because we will be listing our VALENTINES DAY goodies :) She is going to come and stay with me for the weekend so we do not have to do all of our work Via, email, aim, phone and pictures!, It isn't so bad but its about time we get to spend some quality time together without the use of technology!
Reminder our Giveaway ends on December 31st, only a couple of days away!, Tell all of your friends to enter!

Hey everyone it’s me Stacey!
I thought I would take the time a do a quick update on what’s going on in life! My boyfriend actually lives about five and a half hours from where I live so I took the Amtrak and I am up at his house now visiting so I haven’t been on much. I arrived her on Saturday around five o'clock and I have already done tons of stuff! As soon as I walked in the door Dans parents friends followed in soon after, I had an engagement party sunday and his mom and I did 6 hours of shopping today! Its been lots of fun :).
Anyway, my sister has been doing a great job keeping up with everything and as you have probably read she has set a record of making 13 pieces in a few hours… eeek when I get home I better get to work! I have finally finished crocheting my long narrow scarf that may be posted soon! I forgot to bring some extra yarn so I may just have to go to Michaels and pick up some yarn or beads!
Here are the two pairs of earrings I made late friday night to get my last Jewelry making time out before coming up here! They will be posted soon hopefully!

My turn! Hello everyone it’s Stacey! I would first like to start off by saying my sister didn’t lie about my family being afraid for both of our lives when being left alone! She would torture me and I would torture her right back with “MOMMY SARAH CALLED ME A STUPID JERK!”… Always worked :)!
Anyway, now a little about me! I’m Stacey (as you already know) I’m 19 years old and I have an amazing boyfriend of almost 3 years! I am working towards my Communications degree (yes I followed in my sisters foot steps!) doing college online. My hobbies are making jewelry, crocheting and a whole bunch of other crafts! My Jewelry and craft-making hobby first started off as a distraction from the pain I was suffering from. I was diagnosed with a incurable disease that goes by the name of Interstitial Cystitis this past May and it has changed my life around completely! I have made a few pieces to support those who have Interstitial Cystitis as well.

Is knowing a little about who made what you bought! When you walk into a store, and see something that you like, you rarely think past the fact that the item is pretty, neat, cool, well thought out... etc. Do you ever think about where the item you are purchasing came from? I am not talking about which country it came from, did someone actually make it? did a machine make it? was any care, love and thought put into the item at all? Ever since I started making my own jewelry, I am far more proud to wear something I or my sister made then something I bought at a store because I know the time that was put into it. Then I thought, is this just because I or someone I love made it? and the answer is no. When you buy or receive something that is homemade you have a better time picturing the time that someone took to actually make it. I am sure there are many things that we buy in stores that people actually physically make, but we never ever get to know for sure. The appreciation and value of something homemade is far greater then that of something at perhaps a higher monetary value bought in a store.
