This Week's Blog Post

Amethyst Necklace
I love this necklace. It has a dramatic feel! 

The purple chips are rough cut amethyst. I accented with black onyx beads and a black obsidian focal piece. This is available at Etsy.

Bali Findings
I received a shipment from Bali, Indonesia this week. I always love their ear wires

And clasps! Available at Miss Val’s Creations.

Valentine’s Day
I received these super fun chocolate mustaches and really large lips on a stick from the Naughty Bake Shoppe on Etsy. 

They are for my niece and nephew. Yes I bought them candy for a naughty adult shop!!!

These sweet cards are from Art of Heart and Hand on Etsy.

I scored this One Direction card from Great Paper on Etsy.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day and a great week ahead! My area will be cleaning up from Blizzard Nemo!!! It is looking like 30 inches of snow where I live once it finally stops snowing. I am VERY THANKFUL to still have power!!! Stay safe and warm if you are also stuck with this storm. ~Val


  1. The black and purple are great together!
    Love all your handmade Valentine's Day finds. I had to laugh at your comment about buying for your niece and nephew from an adult :)

  2. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
    Hope you are safe in this storm and have nevertheless a good time.

  3. I agree with you that the necklace you created has a very dramatic feel to it. It's gorgeous. And I just noticed you have a new profile pic. Your hair is growing out. Nice photo. And enjoy your time indoors and hopefully the power will stay on so you can truly enjoy being trapped indoors. Maybe more craft time?

  4. 30 inches of snow at one time, that's a lot of snowmen, you could build an igloo village! Hope the snow soon stops and your utilities remain on.

    Pretty necklace, the colors are so nice together! I noticed your pretty new pic, too.

    Have a great week!

  5. Hi Val,

    Are those wax lips? I remember those from when I was a kid. I think it is a riot though, your neice and nephew will enjoy it.

    You know i love that necklace....purple is my very favorite color too.

    I was thinking of you this morning when I was shoveling, figuring you were probably outside too, with your shovel in hand. Thank goodness it is over now though, I'm sitting here in my pj's and I'm done for the rest of the day. I hope you are resting up too and enjoy the rest of your weekend.


  6. Val, gorgeous necklace! You know, your prices are very reasonable! Love the goodies you got from Etsy! It is a great place to shop! Have a very Happy Valentine's Day ;o) We were hit with the storm too! It has now stopped, so we can enjoy the snow ;o) Big Warm Hugs ;o)
