JEWELRY!

I've recently started my hand at making jewelry. Its pretty addictive I must say. I've made several pairs of earrings, a necklace and a couple of pendants so far. I love this. I try to make things that I think are pretty and would love to wear myself.

Contribute to TwiCon Gift Baskets

I've recently signed up to contribute to celebrity and guest gift baskets at TwiCon. This is an exciting opportunity to show off some of my work. I'm planning on sending a big batch of my soy tarts in various Celtic shapes scented with scents such as "Love Spell", "Bite Me" and "Dragon's Blood".

For anyone else interested in contributing to the gift baskets, follow the link above for more information and a signup sheet. So far the following have confirmed attending TwiCon. Sam Trammel (Sam from TrueBlood), Joe Mangienello (just cast as Alcide from TrueBlood) and Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen from Twilight) and more. http://www.twilightcrafts.net/2010/01/three-more-cast-members-announced-for.html

For Locals

Just before Christmas I've started renting shelf space at "A Hidden Treasure" which is located in downtown Monroe, NC.

Currently, I've got various items for sale such as Carnival Glass, art glass, Avon collectibles, gardening items and more.  Recently I've reserved one shelf for just my soy candles and tarts.  I'm considering taking some handmade jewelry and soaps to sell as well.  To see more of my work online visit, http://boerbarn.etsy.com.
