The Low Down,....

The 'emotions' roller-coaster was in full swing last week. 

From sad things to happy things, here's a little run down and also a gesture of appreciation for you at the end of this post!
  • A childhood friend was laid to rest.  (this was the sad/sucky part!)
RIP My Friend - See Ya On The Other Side!

  • Had a bead magazine ask for an article from me for publication in 2013! (Woo-Hoo!!)
  • Found out some various designs I submitted were accepted by a couple of bead magazines (double woo-hoo!)
  • Saved a turtle who decided to venture out of 'lake-land' into the "asphalt jungle". (feel good kind of thing!)
He's cute, isn't he?!
  • Created Jewelry to submit to more magazines and to put in a boutique. (fun part - but I can't show you anything yet!)
  • Listened to the adventures the Hubby and Son had while camping this weekend: torrential rains, held baby horny toads, almost broke a bridge by crossing it, chased by a swarm of bees and stung (hubby!), hit a tree head on,...with his motorbike and his head (again - Hubby!), heard bears, found gorgeous crystals and fossilized shells, helped a stranded motorist, returned some one's lost phone, saw a gorgeous rainbow, and got pictures of none of the above! (they ARE the reason I have so many wrinkles and why I twirl my hair with both hands at the same time!! Actually - more Hubby than Son - Son's the responsible one!)
Partner's in Crime!

  • Had an awesome massage!(Thanks Debbie!)
  • Cleaned the house, did laundry, got groceries. (nothing new there!)
  • Stopped by Creative U and got my Creative Fix (and some supplies!) and chatted with friends!
Hanging with Jen @ Creative U
  • Filled orders and shipped stuff (thank you to all my wonderful clients - you rock!)
There's lots of other things too, but this is plenty to list for now!
I wanted to spread some love around by having a sale over on my MiShel Designs Etsy site from now until September 7th, 2012.  
When you use coupon code ENDOFSUMMER45 upon check out with Etsy, you will save 45% off your total order!
The reason I'm having a sale this huge is because I'm clearing out my inventory to make room for some new jewelry designs coming in October.
The other reason for the sale is that I'll be shutting down both of my shops from the 8th of September thru the 30th of September while I'm away on vacation (more details on that later next week!).
Hint: There's a Roman Aqueduct where I'm going!
The sale is only good in my MiShel Designs shop, not my Shel's Jewelry Supplies shop.(Sorry about that, but I've got my findings priced as low as I can possibly go right now.)
So, what kinds of things have been going on in your life lately?  Any stories to share?

I'm going to be having a little give-a-way, sharing some jewelry pics and putting up another little tutorial here on the blog this week.  (At least that's the plan anyway - wish me luck!)

So, stay tuned and have a great Monday!!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Hair Twirling!

Putting it all together,...

So, do you ever get in one of those moods where you're just obsessed with something?

Yep, me too!  Lately, it's been Polyvore (again!). 

It started a couple years back when I found Polyvore.  I just love putting outfits together. I don't always publish them but I do create outfits/designs and write things down, which gives me ideas for jewelry designs and other things as well. 

But recently, due to the Beading Daily Polyvore Challenge and blog hop that was this past weekend for the new book by Lorelei Eurto and Erin Siegel, "Bohemian Inspired Jewelry", I've been completely and utterly obsessed!

Bohemian Inspired Jewelry - 50 Designs Using Leather, Ribbin and Cords
~by Lorelei Eurto and Erin Siegal~
Interweave Press
First, Erin and Lorelei's book is one of my favorites. You can check it out here.  The photos are so gorgeous and you can really see yourself wearing these designs - no matter what your style!

However, being up at my sis's cabin this past week and weekend, I kinda missed out on the whole challenge thing and didn't get to really go to all the blog posts of everyone who was involved in the book tour blog hop, but I'm slowly making my way around this week and next.  And, it's not too late for your to get in on the Beading Daily Challenge either - you've got until July 13th I think it is - go check it out!

You need to hop on over to Polyvore too and check out all the great collages and ensembles that everyone's putting together - sweet!!

I actually put together two sets on Polyvore that I could never in a million years pull off wearing.

But, they took me out of my comfort zone and expanded my thinking a bit - which was fun and interesting!

Here they are:

Bohemian Inspired - Featuring Lorelei Eurto's Necklace
from the book Bohemian Inspired Jewelry
from Interweave Press.

Cocktails on the Beach
Necklace by Michelle Buettner of MiShel Designs

Nope, not me in the least! 
Well, maybe the shoes - definitely the shoes! 

The Red Set is totally my girlfriend Lea, though!!

Here's me: (as in the style of things I actually wear)

Shel's Choice!

~And this, too!~

Okay - here's where I'm going with this.

My thoughts are that you've been stuck in a rut before with designing or with your hobby or with decorating your house (Pinterest has great ideas for this by the way!) and Polyvore is a really good jumping off point to spark your creativity and it's free!

You don't have to 'share it' if you don't want to and you don't even have to save or publish the sets you create - so it's totally 'risk free'. 

Kinda like that no-calorie candy bar they tell you about, only this time it's true!!

What types of things have you found that helps you step out of your normal comfort zone and into something else but still allows you to be creative is some way?  Has it opened up new avenues for you?  Does it relax you enough to open your mind to other creative venues? 

Maybe it just sparks new interests for you and you start noticing things you haven't before - like different colors, new styles, etc.

I hope you're enjoying your summer and refueling yourself with creative endeavors.

Be sure to stop by and tell us all what's going on and what cool, creative things you're up to or that you're getting ready to try. 

Oh, and I'm having a little SALE over in my MiShel Designs Etsy shop this week - 25% off your total purchase from now until July 1st. Use coupon code SummerFun25 during the check out process. I don't have the code listed in my shop announcements because it's just for my blog and FB friends - so enjoy!!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Creatively Obsessed!!
