 Have you figure out why I said it was going to be a busy week?  And now, to add to all the fun and excitement......my daughter!  She and boyfriend have been together for a while now and this is their first HIGH SCHOOL dance together!  It was for homecoming and yes, that is the necklace set I made her (we shortened it right before she left).  

Here she is....beautiful and full of fun!!



And here is her and boyfriend....aren't they a cute couple?!?!




And HERE is PROUD daddy!!


Oh, did I mention that boyfriend (along with his family and ours) arranged to surprise her and take her to a fancy dinner before the homecoming dance!!  Good Boyfriend!!!! :) 


Are you ready for a couple of new listings?  These are interchangeable earrings!!! They are sold as a set and I just LOVE the idea!! I have made and sold several sets already, but these are the first two I have listed!!

Yesterday I was able to introduce you to Ms. Emmanuella Koenig, owner/designer at Trophy-WifeAprons.  Today I get to tell you a little more about her and her beautiful creations!! 

I have to first tell you about her fan page!!  I know that some pages go 'viral', but for her page, that is an understatement!!  These aprons are so popular that her fan page - started in Jan 2013 - now has over 21,000 fans!!! And they are active!!! Many of her posts get 500+ interactions!!  

Did I tell you yet, she has also been published??  Yep, on Info Grafics!   

It is easy to see why these aprons are so popular!  They are beautiful and the attention to detail is so easy to see!! You provide her with your details and she creates a beautiful apron that you will be proud to wear! Here is my favorite.....it was really hard to pick only one (there wasn't one with dragonflies on it)!!


And here are a few more....just to look at!!

So, go look at her Fan Page, check out her website and make sure you tell her where you heard about her!!  And then, order something that will make you so very happy!!

2 Talented Tuesday 10/28/14 (Trophy-WifeAprons, GoFundMe, 2014 Gift Guide and Sunflower Suncatcher)


Today I get to tell you about my oldest son!!  I don't talk about him much, his is an adult, on his own and making his own life!! But, this is just news I can't keep!! My son is engaged!! She is a beautiful woman and they seem to be truly in-love.  Just look at the two of them!!




As you can see, I am a proud MOMMA!! 


I am not sure who saw the sun-catcher finished yesterday, but here it is....in all of it's glory!! I just love the way it turned out! Remember, I can custom make just about any design or theme!  Since I design the patterns and do the beadwork the creations are truly one of a kind!!

Did you see the colors and stone I picked out yesterday for my new necklace??  Just look at this GREEN!!!  I just love it!  It is so very vibrant and eye catching...let's see if I can do it justice. Remember, you can come on over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page; I post 'working photos' throughout the day!

 

Have you seen my GoFundMe campaign??  I have done several other fundraisers over the last couple of months, but was unable to actually raise any funds.  The site I was using before you would only get the funds if you reached your goal within the set time.  This site is different.  Every pledge actually goes to help Adding Sparkle to the World and helping me grow Krafty Max Originals grow!! So please, PLEDGE, COMMENT and SHARE this with everyone you can!! 



The 2014 Krafty Max Originals Gift Guide is shaping up to be even more amazing that last year!!! There are still spots open, so if you want in, let me know.  Ads are very inexpensive - $5 for business card listing, 1/2 page ($15), full page ($30) and 2 page ($50). AND, if you refer someone that buys an ad you'll get a FREE business card listing!!

Along with all the other amazing things I have talked about today,  I get to introduce you to an amazing artist!!! The owner/designer at Trophy-WifeAprons, Ms. Emmanuella Koenig!  I have to tell you that I have been watching and wanting one of her aprons for some time, but now, that I have gotten to know her a little more, I want one even more!! 

After buying her first sewing machine at age 21 she taught herself to sew her own clothes!  Then it was friends and families, clothes!!  And so she was off at a run on the Internet!! But, the difficulty of sizing and measuring via the web started her off on a new direction.  She started making retro style dresses into aprons....what a hit they became!! 

Here are a few of her favorite.....come back tomorrow and learn more about her and her aprons....today, check out her fan page and other links!!
