What didn't you get for Christmas?

uhum... a ring maybe.. she says sheepishly...

No just kidding! :o)
I had a wonderful time in sunny Florida. It can be stressful when you spend so much time with family but it was nice to see David's family again. And it was actually nice not to wear thermo underwear when going outside...

my friend Gabby from Janedeaux is doing another giveaway. I do hope I win this time!! That would be an awesome belated christmas gift! Click here to see what I am talking about.

What's life without a little bit of romance?

When I first started dating David it was like a whole new world just opened up. In Sweden we don't really date... and no offense to Swedish guys but they don't know how to treat a lady!! David will pull out chairs and still after 4 years he will always open my car door before getting into the car. I know it's rare and trust me I do appreciate it. It's so important and I hope that any guy who reads this will make an extra effort in treating his lady like the lady she is. Cause we love it.

I am probably the most independent strong willed opinionated woman you will ever meet but with simple gestures like that you will make my knees week.. So I want to say thank you to all you wonderful guys out there. You guys are amazing!

in honor of romance!
My Romance necklace with the most amazing crazy lace agate!

and my romance ring with a birds eye ryolite jasper.

I hope you like them :o)

because I am worth it!

LOL I just wanted to to say that!
But honestly sometimes you just need a little Contessa in your life..

A pretty rose with an attitude. Wear it to feel strong, fierce and beautiful. No need for self doubt or any sad thoughts. People see them and go; ohh those are beautiful! and you can reply; well thank you, they're an extension of me.

Now that's all I've got to say about that!

My Contessa ring
my Contessa studs

Rose earrings

and remember don't let anyone ever put you down.

I'm still lurking around...

I swear I didn't fall off the face of the world.. Just a little bit maybe..
the sales fairy was visiting other nova and it has kept me busy... I still managed to get some in inspiration in there.. went for a long walk with David to look at the first snow and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and some sandwiches.....

David's truck is still hanging in there... It does so much better than my little convertible in this weather.. hmm I wonder why? Maybe cause mine acts like a roller skate as soon as we get half an inch of snow on the roads...
David got a new hat. I think it makes him look like 12 (yes a cute 12 year old)... Don't tell him I said so! Cause I think he really likes it. Ok I have to share this with you.. David and I have been together for almost 4 years now and although we have talked about marriage I have also known that it scares him a bit (me too!) but the other night he actually asked me what my ring size was... and what kind of ring I would like! But don't get too excited ladies! David likes to do his research before acting. He finally bought a blue ray player after wanting one for 2 years.. Just saying :o)
I love snow... We don't get enough here in Philly. I could do without scraping car windows.. but I really miss having the whole landscape covered by a white blanket like how it is in Sweden...

My rose designs.. I haven't really decided what to call them yet... The studs are finished and will get posted in my shop tomorrow. I hope I can finish the ring (left) and the necklace (well obviously on the right) as well. But I am not making any promises.. Can't rush or they'll end up in the scrap pile like my butterfly ring.. (I'm still trying to come up with a way to save it...) Maybe one day when it feels less painful I will show you...

Anyways sorry I haven't been around! And on that note I am off to the studio :o)
Thank you for reading my rants.. It's nice to have someone to talk to.
