A little of this and a little of that...

What an interesting year this is turning out to be! I have done so much more and at the same time so much less than I wanted to, but all in all I think it was a good year.
 I am beating Breast Cancer. A hard task but a worthwhile one. I had my last chemo on Friday Nov 30th and I will be having surgery on the 24th of Dec. Nothing like taking on the New Year with nothing left in my body! Just a little radiation left after than and waiting for my spot in line to do reconstruction.
 I am still managing to make new jewelry. I am getting organized at making the most of my time I think. I try to plan better what I want to photograph and post and list. I do have over 250 pieces that are not listed anywhere yet! It takes so long... I think it's the pictures that are the most daunting. Editing and all that.
 I am thankful to everyone who helped me reach two of my main goals. I now have over 500 followers here on Blogger, still hoping for more of course, you never want to stop getting more :)
I also just reach my 2000 goal on Facebook yesterday and I am getting more hopefully as you read this! I am really excited about that one and decided to give away a pair of custom earrings as a Thank you! So head on over to FB to get details and for your chance to win
I am hoping to reach my goal of 300 sales in my Etsy shop, but I know that may be hard to reach at this time so close to Christmas. Just don't let that stop you! I will be having some deals and clearance items and hope to get as close as I can. I am at 248 right now, so really it's only 52 to go... I have pretty much given up on reaching my sales goal in my supply shop, but I just have not had the ability in my hands to complete new charms. I am too clumsy and some of the work my fingers {numb from chemo nerve damage} can not do at all. I accept that. There is always next year! Of course feel free to shop around and see if anything suits your fancy ;)
 I tired to add some fun Red Jewelry to this post to make you smile! I love Christmas and enjoyed decoration my house with my family. We set it up for my Open House and it looks great! I am so proud of everyone for helping me and making things look nice! Things are still looking pretty clean, that says a lot in a house full of 8 people! So jolly!

So stop by, say hello, share and enjoy the season!!

Congratulations on your accomplishments! I absolutely love the earrings in this post, are they ever gorgeous! I am glad to hear you have finished your chemo, but so sorry to hear you are facing the holidays with surgery. Fighting for your life is the best gift you could ever give yourself (and others)! Your strength and artistic creativity are an inspiration!
