Refining the Moment blog feature!

It's always great to be able to do the thing you love the most. It's alittle sweeter when someone gives a compliment and nothing is more of a compliment and an honor then being featured on a blog. Bloggers today are thought of as the up and comming source for all things news, fashion, and resource wise. Bloggers are being depended on more and more to give their unique views on a variety of subjects and today we're very happy to announce the blogger Marry of Refining the Moment has taken her time and passion and given Shamble Ramble a bit of spot light.

In the past Mary has done Friday favorites, where she details to her readers her favorite items ( http://refiningthemoment.blogspot.com/2011/03/friday-finds-new-blossoms.html ). Now looking to get back into the habit of making Fridays once again the favorite day Marry has come up with a blossom theme treat to get her readers thinking if not just excited about spring.

Warm weather, flowers in bloom, and clear skies are just a few of my favorite things of spring. Also getting back out to market is another. We love going to various flea markets around our area sometimes to sell, other times to browse and buy. The walking is not only good, but the person to person interaction is what me and my sister love most. Being cooped up in wintry PA there isn't too much face time one can give when it's blistering cold so the spring and summer months are long awaited treat so we can get back to interconnecting with those around us.

So our dear readers and new to the our blog seeres please take a moment to stop in and see Mary's blog at: http://refiningthemoment.blogspot.com/2011/03/friday-finds-new-blossoms.html and check out her post to discover what other fun favs she has to offer!

It's alive!

So for my birthday I decide to take our second store and make it be alive! Now we have two stores! We couldn't pass up the opportunity to sell in a second venue and reach a wider audience who may not be familiar with etsy and when we found jewelry wonder we couldn't resist giving it a go. The JW site will sell more of our unique pieces and will also sell jewelry, sewing, and other supplies as we find them sometimes me and my sister find wonderful things that we just can't use but at the same time just can't say no to so JW will be selling these unique treasures to those creative people who would give them a happy home and purpose with in their own collections! Our proud new site is: http://www.jewelrywonder.com/shambleramble

We will still always update and stay with our Shamble Ramble site on Etsy but JW is giving us new range of people to meet so we can share our creativity with more onliners with both sites!

The snow is melting!

I love the fact my yard is clear of snow! Sure it's yellow, sure its nearly dead, but it's a lawn! And that means spring is finally on it's way! I don't know about you but I can't wait for market! I can't wait to be in the air, amongst the crowds, and ogling over the neatest trinkets! Winter was fun with the ice glazing over the fallen snow but I'm ready to move out into the green open world once more!

But I must confess being trapped in one's studio has it's advantages! I've been beading up a storm and sewing too! More then one woman should I'm sure! My sisters beginning to think it's an obsession on my part but it's a great way to pass the winter bye and keep my mind thinking spring! I've updated our getting down to business section with lovely treats for spring.

I've also made Nicole a unique spring time gift one that isn't Easter related but screams spring! I recently learned how to make a tree decor! Using a beautiful cup, and various crafting supplies I created a blooming tree and lush green base! She loved it and I want to make more for around the house to brighten up the place perhaps if I remember the camera this time I can get a brand new tutorial up!

Another exiting adventure we're in the process of opening up a new store! We plan to not only sell jewelry but also crafting supplies as well! Me or Nicole will post the site once its all ready! So far to say it's in the oven!
