I'm a lucky girl!

I decided to share with everyone a few of the many talents of my boyfriend, Greg. He has recently opened up his Etsy site - Dichstudios. Greg has been making and selling bottle stoppers and pens that he turns out of exotic woods and funky acrylics on his wood lathe. He's very passionate about it and this comes through in each and every one of his pieces. Lucky for me, he often tries something new and I get to reap the rewards of his new endeavor. For instance, he has been working on making different types earrings out of beautiful, exotic woods. I now have a collection of three pairs and am hoping that there are many more to come. They are just beautiful and I am now trying to convince him to sell them on Etsy, because I think that others would enjoy them as well. Click on the picture to the left to see the earrings with more detail - they are quite stunning.

In addition to bottle stoppers, pens, and earrings, Greg has made many turned bowls, vessels, bud vases, and more. You can see some of his other creations at his website:

Etsy Mosaic Artists Spring Fling Sale

The EMA (Etsy Mosaic Artists) Street Team is planning a group sale at the end of May. Each artist will decide what their sale will entail for their shop - free shipping, discounts, buy one get one, etc. I'm sure that whatever everyone chooses, there will be some really great deals! When shopping on Etsy, you can search "EMA team" to see participating shops.

I still haven't decided what Herley Mosaics will offer. I'm thinking that I may offer free shipping on anything over $25. In addition, I may come up with some other deals. Check back soon to find out and come see me on Etsy during the sale! I hope to list many new items before sale time as well!

Kitty Mosaics in Progress

Here are a few of my works in progress. These kitties are stylin' with their rhinestone collars! I'm still deciding whether or not to put them in some frames I picked up, or whether to post them on Etsy without. Either way, I hope to get them ready and posted by Friday...

My kitty, Mazzy, is just getting acquainted with them - I'm sure she'll be sad to see them go if they sell!

A new studio space

I finally have a new studio space! For about a year, I had been sharing the basement with Greg's (my boyfriend) woodworking studio. Although it was nice spending time together.... it was way to dark, damp, and cold! I found myself avoiding it at all costs, especially during the winter, which doesn't exactly lend itself to productivity. So we finally agreed that I could take over the extra bedroom, which really seemed like wasted space 95% of the time. Finally, I have a space with a window - natural lighting AND fresh air!!!!! I'm so excited! I do need to decorate the space a bit more though, because I miss the colors of my old studio space....
