I feel better. I hope you do too.

I didn't want to leave my blog being so sad. Things are complicated right now, but everything WILL be okay. I have faith it will.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

A little colorful inspiration. AND A SALE!

I'm having a sale!! Mention this sale when you purchase and i shall change your invoice price. :) My friend Alex created this stellar ad, and i am very greatful! It's so pretty!

I love these colors together!! I've started a jewelry collection based upon this swatch, but the sun hasn't been cooperating lately for me to photograph the new jewels. :(

I promise you though, these are pieces you are going to adore. :)

Stay Tuned.

Time is stagnantly passing by....

The photo is from Timothy's Gallery in Winter Park. I couldn't believe how much of my jewelry was there right now [although, i SHOULD know since i bring it there] alas it still amazed me

It's been a really hard month. Scratch that. This YEAR has been really hard. The season in both the nature-al aspect and the the life aspect are both changing at once. The nature part, i am trying to embrace, since the weather has been lovely here in Florida...

The life aspect has been much more challenging. 2009 has been a crazy emotional year and just when i think i am starting to gain momentum, i seem to fall backwards again.

I get these little spurts of mini-ambitions and then lose all interest and motivation to do all that much. Which is very unlike the Jen of 2008. I don't know how to gain my footing again, or what i need to do to figure things out, or what i am supposed to be doing in general.

Didn't i already have my quarter life crisis? This is ridiculous! What do you all do to stay inspired? How do you push away the icky feelings and keep on truckin? Advice??

Hmm..This post is really a bummer I leave you with a trace of something beautiful.


This flower was blooming to happily NOT to take a moment and photograph it. :)

But it's not Spring...rolls. :)

I <3 Spring Rolls i have no idea how i have lived 25 years without knowing the lovely goodness that is the spring roll. In fact, after one taste of the delicious peanutbuttery and hosin sauce [ie: peanut sauce] i think i have finally found my true love. When my friends and I were making the spring rolls in the second picture, they actually HID the Peanut Sauce from me. The horror!!

"No Jen, you are going to eat it all!"
" tastes so good on broccoli and bread and carrots and..."

You can understand their concern, i prolly could have consumed this sauce by the cup full.

Anyways, i highly suggest you start venturing into trying new foods, especially those from Vietnam. So far, everything i have tried is quite a dream for my taste buds. Just wait until i blog about the Vietnamese Meatloaf!!
