*Woke up bright and early to take Adam to the airport. He's in Reno right now and having a wonderful time with his dad.
*Gave this pup a little lovin' since his mommy is gone.
What a nice start to Spring!

I've been frantically getting ready for the long awaited craft fair. With it being my first craft fair I've been struggling with the logistics of it all. I know it'll be great but the little planner in me keeps thinking and thinking and thinking!
Adam and I have also been planning our summer travels! Our plan is to take a 1 and a half day cruise (on board one of the fine Alaska Marine Highway ferries ;-) ) to Prince Reupert with our car and dog. From there we'll spend some time with Adam's dad and take a road trip. Our ultimate goal would be to make it to Maine but we're just going to see what happens. We'll have to be in Colorado for my brother's wedding in July!
I finally renewed my gym membership and it's been great. I've been there almost every day this week and feel really good. Hopefully, I can keep this up and lose a little weight =)
Tuesday's jewelry class included 3 different students (including a boy!!). We made necklaces this week and had a great time. I brought in some junk jewelry and they tore it apart and made new items. I was really impressed at how crafty they were with the old junky jewelry!
I'm looking forward to Spring Break! I plan on sleeping in, reading, watching t.v., thrifting, working out, enjoying wine with girl friends, snuggling with Rosco and HOPEFULLY enjoying a little sunshine (please, please, please weather god!!!).

Fiestaware! This butter dish from the parental-units is one of my favorites!
Green sweaters! I love love love sweaters!
My green prom dress!!! See, even in H.S. it was my favorite color =)
I love working at an elementary school on St. Patricks Day. The kids are writing letters and setting traps for the leprechauns. The nasty leprechauns always wreak havoc on the classrooms. They throw desks around and leave green glittery footprints all over the classroom. Maybe this year we'll catch one of them!!!
The Desk of Doom!!
I love that Adam's friends come over and "cook" for us. Most of the time their "cooking" consists of pizza and beer. It's a night off for me though so I'm not complaining.
Hey, who fired the maid??

She's one of those friends that you sit down and talk to over coffee and realize that two hours have passed and all you've talked about were crafts and etsy! I love her enthusiasm for crafts, jewelry and all things etsy!
She makes some gorgeous jewelry and her friend (and partner in crafting) sews the cutest little slugs.
I know she'll love the blogging world. I can't wait to read her stuff and keep up to date with all her new products.
Things here have been busy busy busy! We're into the first week of my attempt to raise money for breast cancer awareness. I've made a few sales and hope to keep things up throughout the entire month.
My March giveaway is going well! It's been amazing to read everyone's stories and comments about cancer. Thank you all for sharing. My giveaway will be open for the entire month of March so if you haven't entered be sure to do so. It's easy!
If you're into free stuff (and who isn't?) be sure to check out my sweet friend Erin's blog tomorrow for some free hand cozies. I hear they're green so I'll definitely be entering this fun contest!

This month 50% of the proceeds from my jewelry sales will be going to help 5 fabulous women raise money for the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk for the cure. Visit my little piece of etsy heaven at http://www.alaskarocks.etsy.com/ and shop knowing that you're doing something good!
NOW, on to my March Giveaway!! One lucky reader will be the proud owner of this gorgeous "Cancer Sux!" necklace made from copper and recycled plastic. Share a comment or story about cancer to be entered into the drawing. At the end of the month I'll randomly select a winner and send her (or him??) their new necklace. (Be sure to leave an e-mail address in your comment if you're not already a blogspot member)
Good luck & happy shopping!

First number one: March giveaway!! Remember that birthday gift my awesome friend Erin gave me?? The advertisement space on another woman's blog? Well, this month she's featuring sponsors who want to participate in giveaways. This means that some of her readers will be visiting my blog and leaving comments for a chance to win one of my cancer necklaces. Sounds like fun to me!
First number two: Starting on Tuesday I'll be teaching a jewelry making class at one of the local middle schools. I have little projects planned and can't wait to see how many kids show up!
First number tres: Molly & I are doing a craft show! Yikes, our first one. I have no idea what to expect. I'm excited and so happy that I"ll have a friend to talk to and drink coffee with me!
