Don't be fooled...

First of all, I'm working on a teeny pack to snap on to my belt buckle.  It still needs A LOT of work, but I thought I'd let you take a peek at it.  Also, if you need a professional bag, LOL!  Please check out my friend Mary J Maalouf.  She has some great bags and a special going on for bloggers=0)

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got......  JLo sang it better, but it's exactly what I'm talking about right now.  You may remember the last piece I made the night before the extravaganza.  It was love at first sight!  I thought I'd wear it during the party, but I thought I'd put it out for a little bit.  Well, it SOLD quickly and I was making silly crying faces while I gift wrapped it.  Of course I was already thinking that I would search for another stone that evening.  IT WASN'T THAT EASY!!!!  I searched for 3 days, SANTA MARIA!!!
Check out these babies..............  They were worth the trouble, but now which one will I keep for myself?  And how long will I be able to wear it for?  You know as soon as someone says they'd love to have it I usually offer it.  It's like a reflex and I don't even realize what in the world happened, LOL!  I'll try my best to hold on to my rock=0)  And I'll probably sing......DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE ROCK THAT I GOT, every time someone notices it, LOL!
Hope you all have a sparkly week and I'll post a picture as soon as I finish putting these together.

xoxo,
Carol


My other job..................
X-Welcome to Hamburger, hamburger battle restaurant.
Me-Hi there, can you sit down and eat?  I already have dinner on the table.
X-Here is your menu.
Me-Maybe we should do this tomorrow, since everything is already on the table.
X-We have kid's meals and tapioca pudding for desert.
Me-Okay, I already selected my dinner.  See, it's on the table.  Please sit down and eat.
X-I work here, so I'll eat whenever I can.  What would you like me to bring you.
Me-Potatoes, chicken, and peas.  Wow, you are so fast!!!  Look, it's already in front of me!
X-Hey, how did that get there?  I'm suppose to bring everything to you!  You don't play fair.
