Winter Colors

I'm almost done listing gray items in my shop, Handmade Jewelry by Erthe Fae Designs. Of course, Guildmistress (shown above) also has blue and brass in it, in case you find monochromatic pewtery color schemes boring. Make sure to check out the link, there's some great close-up shots in the listing!

Now is probably a good time to mention shipping deadlines. Christmas is less than 2 weeks away... yikes! It's 79 degrees here today, so honestly, it feels like it should be more than a week until the solstice. Anyway, I'd recommend that international buyers not try to purchase any Christmas presents from me right now -- they'd likely not arrive in time. For domestic customers, please make your purchases by the morning of the 17th so I can get them packaged up and mailed out before I leave for my recital. Tucson-area customers, I may be able to deliver your items up until Christmas Eve, but please contact me to make arrangements before purchasing.

Dance goal progress: Last night's practice was divided between practicing for recital (complete with zills), doing an exercise from the Daily Bellydance Quickies e-mail, and typing with a sword on my head. I decided the last one counted as practice at least for yesterday, because my shoulder was a little too sore for 30 minutes of actual dancing. I guess it objected to the 120 push-ups I did yesterday or something. So far today I've just done a little dancing in my chair while working on Etsy things :)


  1. Go, AJ! I kicked off my 365 days early with the DVD "Sizzling Hips", by Ava Fleming.

  2. Lovely piece of jewellery. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  3. i love the name of this beautiful creation.

  4. Yay SaraBeth! I need to do some DVD work, too. I'm getting Rachel Brice's Serpentine for the holidays. It was supposed to be a surprise, but if Chris wants to surprise me with a DVD he probably shouldn't ask me if there's anything I want for 40% off from Barnes and Noble :P

    Thank you for visit, Cuban in London!

    Julie, sometimes simple names are best!

  5. OOOO!!! I have "Serpentine." It's a good one, especially the yoga for back bends.

  6. I've been hearing good things about it but I was waiting to get it until after the holidays in case someone got it for me... but then I realized that the only person who knew I wanted it was Chris, and he never takes hints. Except for this time, apparently :)
