Even though I was 175 in the photo of me at easter in the pink sweater and skirt, I was not working out. My face and body are much more toned now in the bottom two pictures.
In the Green outfit in April I was down to around 190 and now I'm down around 182. It's coming off really slow this time but I know I'm gaining muscle.

Total Due on Delivery:
1. Outer ring Copper ($50) Silver ($60) Gold Filled ($65)
2. Tree Copper Silver Gold Filled
Copper/silver Combo ($60) Silver/Gold filled combo ($65)
3. Number of Branches 1-10
4. Birthstone/month combos or stone for each branch – cross off branches not needed:
Misc. options – root stones/colors etc.
Tonight I will finally get my First Friday Showing at Salon Fin - long awaited since my sudden and serious bout with pneumonia last December that landed me in the hospital for almost a week. Festivities start around 5 PM.
Salon Fin is located at Frederick and Mary Sts. in Lancaster, PA nearby to F&M College.
Can't make it? Then come find me Saturday at Hospital Day in the Park in Ephrata. The show starts at 8AM - bring your own Chai. I'm thinking I'm not going to get to set up today because of the weather (hey-it's OLD 97s on XPN - yayay!! sorry, distracted) so I'll be starting out real early tomorrow morning.
New jewelry! Check this out - made a pendant for my mom and people are asking questions - what is it and how do I get one? This is a tree of life pendant which depicts my mother's children and grandchildren in the branches. The mother's birthstone surrounds the children's. So that's me, the emerald between the amethyst and my kids are the crystal between the emeralds -get it?? This can be done a number of ways - with children's birthstone color between the mother's or both the parents, can be in silver, gold, or a mix, or even copper come to think of it. Price is $50 for copper, $60 for silver and $65 for gold filled or a mix of gold and siver. Mix of silver and copper would be at the $60 silver price. There can be up to 10 branches, with the option of having dangles put on for additional grandchildren - kind of like apples hanging from the tree! The crystals are all swarovski and I have information for what colors go with which birth months. Don't have a lot of children? I only have two but you can do the two branches with your children and leave the rest blank for the future, adding drops with your grandchildren as they come along. Or use drops to signify your nieces and nephews.
Options include putting the Grandmother's/Grandfather's or Mother's/Father's stone color in the roots as well. You can use the tree to signify people in your family, the season of the year or design your own tree to signify healing, strength or the journey of your life. The tree of life is an ancient design used for many purposes.
According to wikipedia - The concept of a many-branched tree illustrating the idea that all life on earth is related has been used in science, religion, philosophy, mythology and other areas. A tree of life is variously, a) a mystical concept alluding to the interconnectedness of all life on our planet, b) a metaphor for common descent in the evolutionary sense, and c) a motif in various world theologies, mythologies and philosophies.
Design your own - have fun! The tree can be just a beautiful using a combined wire motif without any crystals - or choose your own natural stones to be used. I have available a number of different semiprecious stones you can choose from in chips, rounds and other shapes.
That's it for now. Come see me this weekend or e-mail me for a form to order your own tree! Keep me busy and out of trouble this summer!

I recently designed a Mother's Tree of Life Pendant based on many of the Tree of Life pendants I have seen, using birthstone colors in swarovski crystals to signify each child and grandchild for my mom. I'm thinking of making these on a per order basis but haven't decided on a price yet for them. I also have not yet decided what kind of cord to use as the necklace part.
So until next time, that's the update for W Jewelry designs. I'll be posting pictures of the new designs next week sometime.
Be well, and see ya at the Springsteen concert tonight!!

So, in a nutshell, that's why you don't see any new jewelry. And, the jewelry muse has other things to do than grace my studio, or maybe she's waiting for me to cross the room to my workbench. I did start a piece the other night, was trying to make a more affordable line for this declining economy, but the piece got away from me and turned into a monstrosity of ocean jasper, aventurine and poppy jasper. Keep your eyes on me folks, it's coming, it's just taking its time.

1. Get ready to have my taxes done - oh and I started off so well last year, but really dropped the ball after June. Time to play catch up.
2. Get my web sites updated and photos of all my jewelry.
3. Finish at least one piece of the five pieces of jewelry I have started.
Can't sit here chatting, must get to work!!

2. Disconnecting your EKG leads and playing dead is not funny to the nurses
3. Changing around the lead wires on the EKG can not make the readout say "Merry Christmas" or anything else.
4. Don't push your own IV pump buttons, alarms WILL go off.
5. There are no Dr. McDreamys, McSteamys or McHunks, there are only McChunkies, McNuggets and McMuffins.
6. Doctors don't really like it when the patient talks during surgery or wakes up and grabs the anesthesiologist by the throat (true stories).
7. The phone will always be where you or your IV or Oxygen tubing will not reach when it rings.
8. You will always realize that you forgot to put on your robe just after your nurse hooks up your IV.
9. The hospitals, doctors and nurses do not have scanners like on Star Trek to instantly diagnose and cure you so stop asking them.
10. Oxygen masks do not make you sound like Darth Vader or Mickey mouse.
11. A white robe does not make you a doctor and you can't write prescriptions or tell the other patients what to do.
12. Wii does not make an incentive spirometer but they should (this is just a suggestion).
13. Nurse Ratchett does not work here so stop asking for her.
14. Orderlies are not your personal cabana boys and they don't give massages.
15. The pool in the hospital is only for physical therapy and there is no poolside concierge.
16. There is no room service so stop calling the operator and asking for it.
This is certainly not a comprehensive list, feel free to add your own to the comments!

In addition to working out, in an effort to get healthy, I have made my yearly gyno appointment - Have You? I also made appointments for my kids to get their teeth cleaned and my eyes to get checked. This will also lead, I am sure, to my first mammogram. Gotta take care of "the girls."
My best to all of you in this new year. Pay off your credit cards, take care of your health and do all those things you need to do to be the best you!
