Simply black....

One of my favorite combinations...silver and a little dash of black.....simple, clean, modern.

I liked the look of the solo red earrings I recently did for Valentine's Day, so I decided to do an ever-classic solo black pair.

As Valentine's Day as I can get...

So I bought some cute little heart beads recently to see if I could learn to love the luck.

Instead, this is my nod to Valentine's Day....the simple garnet oval. Not sure if Hallmark would approve, but I like them and would wear them, so that's what counts in my book.

Happy Valentine's Day, however you like to celebrate it.

Paralysis by Analysis... who knew a 1.67" sticker could take such a ridiculous amount of creative energy.

I have gone through a myriad of shop labels in the year that lime green modern has been open...some decent, some adequate, and some just downright embarrassing.

This was my number one priority on my 2010 to-do list, but the problem is that I suffer from this really bad affliction my husband lovingly calls Paralysis by Analysis. I know what I DON'T like, but I have a hard time nailing down what I do like. I just can't decide, so I put it off. Procrastination at its best.

So I had been working on the above label for days....had the lime green modern done, as well as the handcrafted jewelry, but I couldn't find the little edge I wanted for the top.

My DH walks in, tells me to put a small thin line at the top...and poof, we were done. I loved it. I have now promoted him to my Chief Graphic Designs Editor.

Maybe this label idea will stick around..
