Thinking of You
Excuse my Dust!

Sharing My Joy

Are you like this? Afraid sometimes to share happy news for fear of sounding like you are bragging? I am. I never want people to think I am bragging about something because that is just not who I am. Yet when good things happen to us, that is the time we need to stand up and shout it to the rooftops. Because face it, life can be hard and so we really need to embrace our joys and share them with others when they plunk themselves down on our doorstep.

So I am embracing my happiness this month and sharing with YOU dear friends what made me happy. Stampington approached me this past Spring and I am thrilled to announce that I have had two pieces of jewelry published in two of Stampingtons' publications, Jewelry Affaire and Belle Armoire Jewelry this month.

Now how cool and exciting is that?!

I think for me it is a validation. Validation that yes I can call myself a jewelry designer, jewelry maker...whatever it is I am at this point in my life. Validation that what often lives in my head, whether I am aware of it or not, can come out safely and be enjoyed by others. Validation that, yes, I AM good enough. I bet many of you out there can relate to sometimes needing validation of some kind.

So thank you for being out there and letting me share with you.
