A Wonderful, Relaxing Vacay!

It took me awhile but i've finally loaded my pics from vacation in Jamaica.  Such a wonderful time.  So here goes with the pics:

We were in room 1209 this year and I must say it was really nice.  It has a large window in the room in addition to the lanai doors.  So lots of light if you want it.

The pic below is on our first full day and I decided to buy one of those huge shells this time.  The guy cleaned it up a lot so not slimy--yuck!  Anyway a great reminder of our time there.  The drink was a "frozen" daquiri.  Things melt so quickly there and dry so slowly.  Hence wet hair  most of the time.

Below is a pic of hubs doing his first dive  in the pool.  Fool!  He is a diving fanatic.  He did about 14 dives while we were there.

Sorry these are out of order.  This is actually the day we left.  Sorry it's so dark.  But that's hubs relaxing in the lobby waiting for the van to take us to the airport.

Here is the ginger bread house they have in the lobby every year.

Hubs again diving on a very cool morning.

Below is a pic of the main lobby and pool deck area. On the left that doorway is one of the gourmet restaurants--Otaheite.  Very good food!  Have to dress kind of fancy.  If you walk straight into the picture to the large opening you would be in another restaurant  where during the day they serve breakfast and lunch.  But at night it serves dinner.  It's very open and airy and birds fly in and out sometimes.  You can see and hear the ocean.  Very dark with candlelights.  Very romantic.  At the top straight ahead is an area that you can sit on hanging swing chairs and view the resort and the ocean.  Really pretty.

An incredible sunset.  Looks like a painting doesn't it?

One of the people on the beach who make their living singing in front of the resorts.  He sings and you can give him money.  Nice man.

This is me and hubs on our 2009 trip to Couples Negril.  And those are not my cigs.  I know nobody believes me.

Again, sorry they are out of order. But this is just another little Christmas corner of the resort.

This is blurry but I just took it because it's our room this year.  It's the 2nd floor door on the right in the corner.  As I said I really like it.

So that's it for now.  And if you'd like to check out the Couples Resort web site Here.  I have some new pieces finally.  When I get the pics taken i'll post them here.  Stay tuned!

SOOOOO~! I'm Back!!!!

I am just back from my looooooong vacay.  My hubby and I decided to not do much over the last year to save and take a long vacay to one of our fav places--Jamaica!  We love, love, love Couples Negril which is a small resort.  We've been there quite a few times over the years and always said--"boy I wish we would have stayed longer".  

Well this time we stayed there for 10 whole days.  It was spectacular to have nothing on your agenda but pleasure for that long.  And by pleasure I mean no schedule, no time limit, no rushing off everywhere--just deciding spur of the moment to do nothing but sit on the beach all day. Or sleeping until 9 am or staying up past our bed time 11 o' clock.  Woo hoo!  We are animals!   Or putting up your flag on the beach for the attendant to take your order and bring it to you.  It's a slice of heaven for a short while.

So anyway I feel energized for work.  I feel energized to create.  It's a wonderful feeling and I hope it can last me for a while.  I took lots of pics this time which we usually don't because we've been there so much.  I want to share the pics so i'm working on getting them in my computer and then to my blog today and tomorrow.

My etsy store has been closed until vacay was over but I will certainly be opening it back up today.

Then I plan on making jewelry until i'm passed out somewhere.  That's how I feel now and I hope and pray  it lasts for awhile.  So i'm going to go and get busy with my pics and hopefully will post pics of my wonderful vacation today or tomorrow.

A Little Something to Say

For anyone who has read my very newly sprung blog i'm not gone just a little stuck.  I was supposed to participate in a craft show recently but I choked.  I decided that I wouldn't do it for various reasons.  As of right now i'm glad I made that decision.  But I started re-thinking everything.  From my low creativity level to my low interest level in general.  Don't know what came over me but I just was not feeling anything.

Well just like a spark something hit me and all I wanted to do was create jewelry.  It's weird.  So i'm thinking and mulling things over and now that I feel like creating again i'll come back later today and post some of the new items i've made.

If anybody reads this please feel free to make comments.  On anything! I'm desperate for feedback on my items and feedback on life in general.  I would love to hear from some other jewelry designers and other creators about their process, their failures, their successes and everything in between.
