Back Home


Were back home. Since my mom found out she was having surgery for her Chiari Malformation I've been helping her at home. It has been a week now since her surgery and she is home on her way to recovery. It has been a long week but we are thankful that everything went well. From here on out we just want to do everything possible to help her get better. Thanks for all the prayers!

 My 10 month old is now trying to walk on his own. It's so funny when I hold his hands he takes off running instead of walking.....oh how I thought he was a handful now I can only imagine when he starts walking on his own.

and much more!


I want to welcome all the new followers and best of luck for the 1,000 follower giveaway.

I am super excited to say that I have finally got my first online sale! Thanks to TwingleBeads who has purchased the colorful owl necklace. Please visit her site she has a TNT Auction going on right now that supports a great cause.

I must tell you that selling online is more challenging than I thought. You really have to step out of your comfort zone and put yourself out there.

Here are some challenges that I have personally come across:

Challenge #1 PICTURES- These are really important when selling online because the customer can't touch the item or try it on. All they have to go by is pictures which can speak a thousand words.

Can I be honest with you? I have taken so many pictures and when I say so many that's still an understatement. I'm still not happy with the end result, so I have reached out to someone very special to me that is going to help me capture some awesome shots. Stay tuned they are Coming Soon!

Challenge #2 COMPETITION- Now a days everyone seems to be designing, making and selling jewelry. And some longer than others. So what's a girl to do?

Can I be honest with you? I have seen some really amazing jewelry designed and that's what gives me my inspiration to keep going. No matter how many people are making and selling jewelry it's my passion and outlet to let go. So with that said I'm here to stay and I'm ready to give it all I have. As long as it makes me happy then I will keep doing it.

Challenge #3 BLOGGING- This is the biggest of the 3. I've never really been good with words and to start something like this has most definitely put me out of my comfort zone.

Can I be honest with you? After research and visiting other bloggers I now know that a lot of people feel the same way when starting a blog. Questions such as Who will ever read this? What will I say? How do I get started? But if we never try then we will never know. So my only option is to just do it, learn as I go, be honest, be myself and have fun!

                                                              Here's my motivation
On another note my mom is doing good thank the Lord!

Prayers Needed

For a while now my mom has had dizzy spells and just recently been out of work, unable to drive, or take part in normal daily activities such as going to the grocery store by herself. After going to a few doctors and having several tests run a Neurosurgeon has diagnosed her with Chiari-Malformation. There is no known cause for this illness. As we hoped and prayed that it wouldn't be anything too bad we have now found out how serious it really is. She will undergo surgery in a couple of weeks that involves more than I can even bear to talk about. I'm so sad that she even has to go through this. As I stay strong and do whatever possible to be here for her deep down my heart hurts because I could only imagine her fear of this procedure. With that said please keep her in your prayers. Life's to short to be anything but happy and make sure to tell all your loved ones how much they truly mean to you.

Change of Heart

Believe that you can and your half way there. -Theodore Roosevelt

This blogging thing isn't easy for me to do honestly that's why I put it off for so long because I didn't know where to start, how to start, or even what to say. I guess you can say "I'm lost for words". My fear was holding me back to something that with time could actually be really great. After thinking long and hard I'm getting out of my comfort zone and jumping into something that is very unlike me. After all we all have to start somewhere don't we?  After reading this article Four Habits for Long Term Success it has giving me a boost that I need to just make it happen.

With that said I won't bore you any longer I'm posting new pictures of my New Be Jewel Me Collection. This collection was inspired by everyday life. As you will see it's a mixture of stone, pearl, swarovski glass beads, turquoise, silver, brass, fun, glamour, natural, bold and the list goes on. You are probably wondering what does that have to do with everyday life.....well variety is the spice of life. That's how this collection was evolved by using a variety of findings and beads to spice it up and make the Be Jewel Me Collection simply unique and one-of-a-kind. Please enjoy!

Marvelous Monday

Hello to all I hope that your Monday has been treating you right. 

Before we get started I hope that all the moms out there had a fun filled day.....you all deserve to be pampered, have time to relax, & spend quality time with the family. 

I enjoyed my time relaxing and spending some very much needed time with my lovely family. Drake (my son) as always lit up my day with his beautiful smile! He's something else....he's learning to eat real food now! Every since he tasted the real stuff he refuses to eat the baby food which I don't blame him. Have you ever tried it? I haven't, but I can smell pretty good and it doesn't smell like my cup of tea yet look any better. Being a first time mommy I am learning new things each day and now my challenge is what to feed him. I know one thing for sure he is a picky eater and I'm not sure if that's babies or just him? He's just growing like a weed and I'm cherishing the precious moments while I can.

As for this weekend....what an eventful weekend it was. I participated in my first Expo which was a great experience. My new Collection had a lot of feedback that I was really happy about. The owls seem to be a big hit. They seemed to catch everyone's attention especially the bold and beautiful owl which is shown in my preview for the month of May giveaway. Be sure to check out the Collection coming soon to my Etsy shop, plus pictures will be posted in my gallery.  

Last but not least I was not aware that the settings on my blog were not allowing for you to leave comments. I have updated that and it is fixed, so if you would like a chance to win a bracelet from my new Be Jewel Me Collection please make sure to visit http://loveblissaccess.blogspot.com/p/giveaways.html for more details on how to enter and win.
