My Very First Post

Well, I only have to do this one time so I think I should just quit thinking about it and just get it done already!

I've been thinking for weeks about what I should write about and who I should write about and I've come to realize that I could never just make this about me and my work. This will have to be about everything that is part of my life and ultimately that is what makes up my work.

So I guess this first post will be about who I am, just a little back ground about me. I am 1 of 5 girls. All of our names start wit
h the letter H.
I will talk about my sisters in future posts. I have a beautiful little girl named Bailey. She is 4 1/2 years old. I have been married to my husband for 12 1/2 years.

That is a very old picture but I can't seem to find one of all of us recently! I started this journey after I had miss priss. I am a culinary trained chef by trade. I worked in the food industry for 15 years but that is not a good life for a family so I 'retired' after her birth. I needed a creative outlet and thought jewelry was just the ticket.
I have been taking classes off and on and learn whatever I can on my own through books or just trial and error. I'll talk more about that later too! Well I have to keep you coming back to read more about my exciting life don't I?! I can't even write that without laughing!

Well I hope I haven't bored you to the point of tears. I hope you come back to read again. I will be doing some giveaway's of my jewelry in the next couple weeks. Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hello Heather. Arizona, huh. I live just about as far away in the continental US as possible: Rolla, ND (right on the Canadian border). I am impressed with your talent and your dedication to your daughter. I have been a teacher for 15 years and a mother of four for 15 years. Luckily my career and the kids just sort of go together. Stop by my blog and say "hi" and check out the mostly upcycled creations I make on Etsy. Congratulations on your first post! I think you'll love the blogging community. Talk soon.

Thank you so much Danielle! I am looking forward to this new journey! I'll come by sometime and say HI!
You are so right about our locations! I'm about 3 hours away from Mexico.

Congrats on starting your blog! I think you're going to like doing it!

You've got some really pretty pendants there, too! Love the wedding bouquet ones and the "C" one in your Cora post.
