Morning Sparrow has an Etsy shop

I have made jewelry since I was a little girl. Friendship bracelets were my first designs and then as a teenager I moved onto the ever-so-popular 90's hemp necklace fad. Since then, I made pieces here and there for my own wearing. A few years ago, I accompanied a friend to a bead show in Tucson, AZ and stocked up on a ton of beautiful, quality stone and glass beads, not sure when and how I was ever going to use that many beads I purchased.
Well, the time has come. I launched a new Etsy store with some earring designs I have been working on the past few months. I'm calling my store Morning Sparrow as well.

Right now, I have sterling silver earrings and I will be adding some necklaces to the shop very soon. I'd love to be able to generate a few extra bucks so that I can donate money on a regular basis to Ethiopia, my son's birth country. I've been looking into financing micro loans for women to start their own businesses and also considering child sponsorship or orphanage donations. However, before I get ahead of myself, I need to start selling some pieces. With Mother's Day and graduation time fast approaching, I'm hoping I'll see some sales.

You can visit my Etsy shop here:

I'm also looking into advertising on some blogs. If you have any blog suggestions or promotional ideas, please do share!

Have a wonderful day to you all!

Cupcake Queen

I am a Cupcake Queen. I absolutely love them and love making them just as much. Although, I am not up to speed on my own recipe for the batter and I use mix from a box, so technically "Queen" is probably not suiting. Anyhow, I would probably seriously consider opening a little hometown vibe cupcake shop if it wasn't for the fact that after all that baking, you have to do all that washing of pans. That part sucks. Here are some of my favorite ones...

My dear friend sent me this link to cupcake recipes and I'm excited to try them out.

Well, after this spring cleanse diet is over with that is. Check out the Key Lime pie one! Thanks, R for sending this link.

It's funny how your day can take a turn back up memory lane. I got an email from an old friend today and it made me remember the days, years ago, when it was just me. Life is a thousand times different now, but sometimes it's nice to be reminded of what used to be. If for no other reason, but to take a long stroll and remember.

Spring Clean

Spring is here...FINALLY. That felt like the longest winter in a long time. A lot is happening this spring and I'm looking forward to what it's bringing. We've got a home remodel on our plate, which means we need to spend a lot of time out of the house enjoying the weather. We've got a vacation coming up in April. Today, we started a spring cleanse with our diet. We are cutting out pretty much everything, but the basic lean meats and veggies for a few weeks. The hardest part....NO COFFEE or caffeine at all. Yeah, I may fall off the wagon on that one, but I am going to give it a try. I am determined to start fresh this season. Get down to the essentials and the basics of life. Spring Clean...pretty much all of me. Any changes coming your way this Spring?

Peeking around the corner

It's been a long time coming. It's as eager to arrive as I am to have it.
With it comes excitement in the air, fresh breezes... sunshine warming my skin. Here's to this new month bringing us all something new. Cheers!
