Here's the B!

So, I've not been going at this blogging thing on the regular like I wanted...  but here we go again.  This time I'll be posting all things B.

First, let's talk about boobies.  You know... breasts, jugs, and tits.  Here are some awesome handmade goodies that are related to boobs.

Boob Scarf

Nipple Cocktail Ring

Pin Up Bombshell Oval Platter

So while we're talking about boobs, we also need to bring up breast cancer.  It's a killer, and doesn't have to be so much of one.  Early detection is the key.  Don't forget the monthly self-exam in the shower.  Get the mammogram when your doctor says you should.  It's important to keep those funbags fun!

Below you'll see links to breast cancer websites to learn more about prevention and donation.

Of course, there are other B things in this world besides boobies.  Here's one of my favorites:  Burt's Bees!   Their tagline is "Earth Friendly Natural Personal Care for The Greater Good."  I have a tube of their lip balm in every handbag and in almost every room of my house.  If you've never tried their products, it is imperative that you run out RIGHT NOW and buy some.  It's an awesome product with a conscious.  Get it.

So there's another B I would like to share with you.  It's a necklace I made named Buzzing Necklace.

Here's the description I listed for this necklace:  Of course, this necklace reminds me of that busy bee lady. You know the one. She's got a million irons in the fire and does it all with flawless perfection. We grumble at how awesome she is without noticing how awesome we are. How do we miss our pros and constantly stumble on our cons? Get with it, woman! Show your stuff and flaunt it with this necklace. You are awesome!!

So what have we learned with this blog post?  Well, let's be proud of our bodies, dammit. We're beautiful!  Second, we know that we should take care of ourselves and each other. Next, there are awesome companies with great products that also care about things other than the bottom line.  Lastly, we're fabulous and need to realize it.  So there.

Thanks for joining me once again for this blog post! If you have a suggestion for the C post, leave me a note below.  :)

Blogging the Alphabet - Gimme An A!

I don't know where to start with this blog.  So, I've decided that I will get through this writer's block by blogging through the alphabet.  Each blog will revolve around the next letter, but we have to start somewhere.
Let's do this thing starting with A!


Of course, we have to start with accessories.  Love, love, love accessories.  Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, hair thingamajigs.  You name it and I like it.  It's really no surprise that I love to make them, too.  Here are some A accessories by me and other lovely people.

So here's a necklace I made of green Aventurine

Green is one of my favorite colors and aventurine is a beautiful stone.

Amethyst Earrings

Amethyst is a great stone.  I love how the facets on these earrings catch the light and they're set to really let the light shine through.

Alice in Wonderland bracelet

Alice in Wonderland!  Everyone loves Alice, whether it's the book, movie, cartoon.  No matter what your favorite, you know this cuff totally rocks.

Applique Ring

Appliques are awesome!  I appreciate the patience that someone has to make all of those teeny, tiny stitches by hand.  This ring is too cool.  Completely hilarious!  Who wouldn't want undies on their finger?!

Alrighty, y'all.  I think that this will have to do it for my first blog post.  I hope that you've enjoyed these A accessories.  I have faith that I will be more interesting and thoughtful as this blog progresses...  :)

Any suggestions for my B blog entry??  Leave it in a comment below.  Thanks!
