Excited Adie

Hi everyone!
December has been a pretty great month already. I can feel it in my bones, guys. This is going to be one for the books.

Here are some things that have me pumped this month (so far):

Already we have gotten a good amount of snow, which equals LOTS of Adie grumbles. More importantly, however, this also equals lots of quality time with mah man friend. We've been drinking wine, getting all wild and crazy, and doing cool stuff like watching Titanic (we are WILD, I say! Wild!). Speaking of, raise your hand if you're as excited as I am for Titanic 3D to come to theaters in 2012? That right there is reason enough to count down until next year, amirightoramiright ;)

Got this flat out righteous screen shot the other day. Quick! Name that B list celebrity!(wait, C list?)

P.S. Sorry it's so blurry. In the awkward screenshot business, it all happens so fast. You know?

ANNNNDDD, remember when I mentioned how hard I've been working in my studio? Well, I made another update to Adiemade and I'm pretty darn excited about it. There are more to come, so stay tuned. I gotta say, when fun things start a-brewin' for me in my creative mind, I can not even begin to tell you how centered and balanced it makes me feel in every.single.other.area of my life. Amazing! 

I also went ahead and created an Adiemade Facebook page, so if you all are on there and would like to recieve more regular updates about my jewelry, hop over there and become a pal! I'm not going to give tooooo much away right here, but let's just say I have a couple of surprises up my sleeve that FB pals will want to keep up with, if you know what I'm saying ;)

I hope December has you all as excited as I am! As always, thanks for stopping by.

Grateful for it all

November was a real doosie for me(by the way, THANK YOU to everyone for your kind words on my last post!) was filled with really high highs and really low lows. 

Now that it's officially December and all, a part of me would really like to say "alright, November, I wash my hands of you" and move right along, but I feel that I have to take a minute and be thankful for that dang ol November anyway. Sure, November 2011 tested the SHIT out of me. Sure, it gave me some serious curves in the road but that's all they were. Tests and curves. And did I pass? YES! And did I make it around each and every one of those sick little twists? Yes I did! So, here's to that, and making some damn tasty lemonade if you know what I mean.

A few things I am grateful November gave me:

Studio time almost every day and working on the new Adiemade collection with the passion it deserves.
My sweet, loving, patient boyfriend and his love for cooking. My soul thrives on it, I swear.
I love photobooth-what can I say?, a stunning way to wake up, Dog-sitting the coolest wiener dog in all of AZ, Irvin Rex
My sweet 18 year old cat, tulips for heads during Thanksgiving, giving my jewelry collection the love it needed (antler and Japanese 'lunch box' are from my amazing Grandpa Tom)

Retail therapy in the form of an amazing deal on Sam Edelman Adena flats, studio video chat sessions with my gal Alex

This is what I'm looking forward to in December:

Pouring more passion into Adiemade
Making time each day for tea
Eating. LOTS.
Watching "Captain Ron" and "Overboard" more
Retaking my math assessments and not failing (anyone wanna tutor me over the internet? haha)
Leaving more and more space for gratitude in every area of my life
Having my family in one place again
Resuming video chat dates with my long-distance best pals
