Hello lovely Lilies,

I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! Mine has been quite busy. My grandpuppy has come to stay with us for a month due to her brother and his girlfriend having puppies. DarZee does not like the girlfriend and since the puppies are only a week old, the girlfriend has to be with them, which means DarZee is here with us.

DarZee SmootBless her heart, I just realized this morning that she’s been a part of our family since 2009 and now she is almost 12 years old! I just have a hard time believing it. Technically, she is my son’s dog, but… she isn’t a dog at all. She’s family!

Anyway, I’ve been a bit distracted today with taking care of her but I wanted to pop on and make a little announcement!

I have released my latest faux stone collection! Faux Labradorite.

I love rocks and gems – oddly enough though, not diamonds or gold. LOL Go figure! My husband said that was one of the reasons he fell in love with me 😉

When I started working with polymer and resin and realized that I could imitate some of the stones that I love so much, I was beyond thrilled! Labradorite is one of my favorites!

Labradorite is a feldspar mineral of the plagioclase series that is most often found in mafic igneous rocks such as basalt, gabbro, and norite. It is also found in anorthosite, an igneous rock in which labradorite can be the most abundant mineral. (SOURCE: geology.com)

I love its layers and depth when polished to a very high shine and I think it makes stunning jewelry.  The first set I’ve created features a surprise with it’s listing!  

If you buy the set (necklace and earrings) you’ll get a second matching necklace to give as a gift for Valentine’s day.  Since it’s a simple design, on a black leather cord, it’s great as a gift for a man, your best friend, mom, dad, sister, brother, or anyone else you can think of! The set is just $38 with free shipping, and, if you join my mailing list, you can save 25% on your purchase, which brings your total to 28.50!

Be sure to sign up because you’ll get access to sneak peeks of new collections and pieces and the chance to shop my launches BEFORE the public does! That will come in handy, especially for my dab tools because they tend to sell out within 24 hours!

Ok lilies, that’s all for today. I hope you have an amazing weekend. Don’t forget to join me over on Instagram for my Self-care Sundays!

Namaste and be blessed!
