Hello. My Name is Angie and I Have a Problem.


Forgive the pictures. Its 10pm. Not really prime daylight hours to take pictures in (and there is a part of me that is embarrassed that I have just posted these horrible pictures for everyone to see), but I have a problem. Its called, "I can't wait. I can't stop. I can't wait. I can't stop." This problem is how I got myself into an etsy shop to begin with. See, over Thanksgiving break I decided that I would make a "few" necklaces for myself and perhaps a "few more" as gifts for people.

And by the end of the week I had 30 necklaces and Chris said, "Um, so what are you going to do with all of those necklaces?"

And I said, "Errrr, I'm going to wear a different one every day of the month and then start again?"

And Chris said, as he rolled his eyes and scoffed at me, "I think you should maybe sell some of them."

So, I did.

But I digress (which is exactly what my high school Latin teacher, Mr. Dennis said approx every 8 minutes).

So I had this vision of what I wanted to do with these shell beads and I am super excited about how they turned out! I think of these as my "beach" line. You know...these are the necklaces that you would wear when you have your family pictures taken at the beach...posing in the sand in your white outfits with the water and sky behind you (the perfect Mother's Nature backdrop). I love those family pictures. Not that I have ever had one of them made. That would require actually going to the beach and that's just not so much me. Sand? Ugh. Children and sand? Double ugh. It makes my head spin just thinking about it. You're probably thinking about calling the authorities right now, huh? Child neglect case...I haven't taken them to the beach. Next summer, I am going to let my mother-in-law take them. She doesn't know about it yet. And as a beach trip surprise, I am going to make her one of these necklaces, so I think she'll be ok with it.

I know how to fix your problem... give them away to us! Haha.

Really, though, those are VERY cute! Great job.

I was thinking Disney next summer. Are you down with that one? Of course I could do beach also. Were you also thinking Q, because I'm not sure we're fast enough to have him by the water.
