Rockin' Heart Jewelry- Debut!

Howdy friends, I hope you are having a great weekend! Mine started off with minor surgery. I had my two upper wisdom teeth pulled. I'd been putting this off for years! They put me to sleep for the procedure, the first time I've been under anesthesia. I loved it- I remember getting the I.V. in my arm, then waking up with gauze in my mouth wondering "have you started yet?"

My recovery has been remarkably easy so far. I wanted to share with you my newest venture! I have not set up an online shop yet but hope to in the coming weeks. My talented cousin Tara designed my logo for me (I just changed the crown to a horseshoe on the heart.)



I will share the story in a future post of how the name came to be. Anyone who has come up with a name for a blog, hobby, or business knows how tough it can be. For one, it's important and should summarize who you are and what you are doing. And it seems so permanent (ideally you do not want to start a business then change your name!)

I wasn't sure the leather and bead necklaces would sell as well as the solid beaded ones, but I sold two the first time I opened "shop" at the ranch! This blue cross looked so darling on the gal that bought it!


These are just a few photos of some of my first jewelry creations. I will be adding more as time goes by. If you ever see something you interested in purchasing, please let me know by a comment on the post or via email: ranchgirldiaries@gmail.com.

In other news, I have been busy getting in some riding and attended my mom's annual family reunion. I always love these get togethers and I am looking forward to the Pony Cousin Stampede next week!

So you're sticking with Rockin' Heart? That was my favorite name, Mom's too. I think it's really exciting you're doing so well. Love that pic of the cousins. I am planning to do all my pics in Snapfish so everyone can take what they want. I got some good ones of the family. Congrats on your sale!
