About Me

My photo
I live in New Jersey, married with two teenagers that keep me very busy. I love crafting and recently decided to take my crafting to a new level by opening stores on Etsy. Etsy is a site for people that love crafting and buying handmade items. I have been open about fours months and its been a lot of fun! I consider myself a creative person who needs to be busy in order to stay sane :) If you get a chance I would love for you to visit my stores on Etsy. You can find me using the following links~~~~~~~ www.klayfriends.etsy.com which is for my collectible, fun & Classy Jewelry and my newest store which specializes in Clay Piggies and other critters at klaysweetpiggies.etsy.com

Any Cereal Lovers Out There???

Okay, so yesterday while i was enjoying my low fat, boring healthy cereal, I was remembering being a kid and begging my mom for the sweetest cereals on the market.
She was pretty easy to break down and I usually got my Captain Crunch, Fruit Loops, Count Dracula..hahahha remember those? You know its amazing that if you were like me back then we survived!, but we did. Sometimes I wonder if our kids aren't missing out...pushed to give them nutritious cereals and low fat foods all year around...Gosh, they can't even bring sweets for their birthdays to school anymore :( Realizing that we have children that aren't getting enough exercise as we did due to computers, video games etc, I can see why they are pushing the "healthy" choices, but I still think some of my best memories were sitting at the table with my Frosty Flakes and maybe even having a cupcake when I got home from school. I made a "new" Klayfriend yesterday, Fruity Cereal Piggy to remind us of the days we use to eat sweet, fun cereal and sometimes eat as this piggy is one at a time and leave the soggy cereal & milk in the bowl...hehehehe
Those Were The Days!!

~~~I love a good rainbow after a storm~~

Well, my kids go back to school tomorrow..their week off seems to have flown by.
My house is always crazy, but fun! My son had two friends over and my daughter also had kids coming and going over the past week. its going to be awfully quiet here tomorrow without them. We all were talking over breakfast this morn and my daughter was going on about how scared she is of stormy weather, tornados, etc.etc... I was explainig that after every storm a rainbow follows and when shes away at college in the fall and scared just think of the rainbow after the storm and she can get through anything! When I finally got a chance to relax today I contemplated what kind of bracelet I would make and it was then the discussion of the morning came back to me and so became my newest bracelet...Colors Of The Rainbow, etsy link is
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23632176. It is so beautiful in person. If you get a chance and could comment I am wondering if I should do more swarovski crystal bracelets. I love making my charm bracelets, but these are so pretty as well. Have a great day all...God Bless all our rainbows! Laura
