Welcome! If you're new here, I'm Katie. I do all the things behind the scenes of ValenStar Jewelry from creating the pieces to photography to making sure every piece arrives safely to your door.  If they don't arrive safe (rare), I make it right. 

I'd like to give you an idea of what to expect if you'll be following along regularly. This from a girl who likes to fly by the seat of her pants.  Such an odd expression.

Monday Makings: I'll round up the best of the latest offerings from yours truly from the past week. 

Wednesdays are for Works in Progress:  What's on my clay table?  What am I excited about?  What project went up in smoke? (Not really, firefighter's daughter - no torch in use.)

Flower Fridays:  If you've looked at all at my shop, you know I love flowers. Daisies, roses, dogwoods (technically not flowers, but work with me here), calla lilies, sweet peas.  So many colors and petal shapes.  In between sharing my takes on beautiful blooms, I'll add in some info about the flowers and their meanings.

Saturdays & Sundays are for Sharing:  I am passionate about handmade (being that I make all my jewelry and have a zillion hobbies using my two hands) and want to share the love so each weekend I'll round up a handful of my favorite things from other artisans so share with you.  Have suggestions? Gimme! Uh, I mean, send me a message. Please. Manners!

That's all I've got for today. Stay tuned for tomorrow's Work in Progress Wednesday!

Katie
