Friday News and Blog Candy

This is my first Friday update. The plan is that each Friday I will be updating my blog - barring weeks that I'm off Monday and have to work my other J.O.B. on Friday. Even then, I plan on at least planning the update into my day.

Heres the real news - Blog Candy is coming. What is blog candy you ask? Will it make me fat? Inquiring minds want to know!! Blog candy is a free giveaway on a blog. ON some blogs it may indeed be fattening, but on mine, the giveaway will be jewelry, and since my jewelry sometimes has sharp pointy bits, I don't recommend eating it. Now I know that many of my dedicated followers are not computer savvy, but here's your chance to find out what blogging is all about, get updates on W Jewelry Designs, and say Hi and let me know you are out there.

I will begin posting my blog candy today with these earrings pictured above. A fun, fall frolic-y kinda earring with vintage tulip, czech glass and pearl beads that swing from a sterling french hoop ear wire.

How do I get these earrings? Post a comment to my blog below this entry with your e-mail so I can contact you if you win. Tell me what you like on my blog, what you want to know more about, what colors you are looking for in jewelry, what you think of the fact that I own ferrets, cats and a rat, how you know me or what you had for breakfast. Or just say hi!! It's easy. On September 30th, I will take all the names and pick a winner using a randomizing program. So, e-mail all your friends and family and tell them about blog candy!! I am planning on offering a prize a month. Also, if you're local to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania locale, take a minute to e-mail me your home address and I'll put you on my mailing list to receive an invitation to my open house in November. Ths invitations are cute and give you a discount on your purchase during the open house.

Tomorrow, Saturday, I will be in Hummelstown at their annual Arts Festival 9:30 AM until 5 PM. This is a lovely show along the main street in Hummelstown. Can't find me at the festival? Call my cell 717-371-3726, I'll have it on all day and I'll guide you to me.
I'd also like to share a link that is helping to get my house clean.
I am not a BO (born organized) person. Those of you who have been to my house can attest to this, but this web site is helping me to de-clutter, clean and organize my house. I am only on day 4, taking baby steps toward this, but already I have a spotless sink - no really, it's spotless!! The kitchen counter on 3 ft either side is CLEAN and today I polished the stovetop and vacuumed the floor. I still have lots to go, but by taking these baby steps I think I can do this and finally have the home I've dreamed of, still leaving lots of time, more time even for my creative mind to play. Best of all, it's free. It's like instant blog candy for the soul!! I'm telling you, if you're like me - and I know I'm not the only creative - unorganized - house always needs to be cleaned - stressed out person - this web site will change your life, your home, your family!
Best to all of you,

Hello Dianne,

What lovely words you have blessed me with. But I am the one who should be thanking you for being one of the best clients anyone could ever hope to work with. You are a joy to my heart...and the most creative Artist I've seen thus far. I know that you can make it big. Aim for the stars. We'll talk soon.

Your Agent,
Terri A. Durden

Hi Dianne,
Met you today at the Hummelstown Craft Show. I think I was your first customer... you had trouble finding your tools to shorten the bracelet I purchased. I just absolutely love the viking braided bracelet. I put it on as soon as I got home. You've created some of the most beautiful jewelry I've seen around. I'll be saving up to purchase more. I really like your blog and will check back often to see what your up to. Maybe I can talk my mom into coming down to your November Open House. I'm sure it won't be hard to talk her into it. Hope to see you again soon.

Love your segmented bracelet with the lampwork beads from the capitaljewelry site. All your work is stunning. Love the more earthy tones and the blue and beiges.

Hi, I found your blog from looking at an email you placed on LCFC. I live in Manheim, PA. Nice jewelry. Check out my blogs sometime.

Hi Dianne!
I met you in the artist trading card trading world and own many of your ATCs.

Although I have not been exchanging ATCs for a few months out of busyness I still do have my art blog and my main blog (The Thinking Mother).

It is lovely to see your photo on your blog. After knowing you through cyberspace before you put your photo up it is nice to see you now.

I have linked to your blog for a long time as I have links in my art blog for people who I've swapped ATCs with.

I enjoy seeing the photos of your jewelry on your blog.

Glad you are well!
