cool concept…at a swissmiss meeting recently, folks were asked to finish the sentence “if i would make a documentary it would be about…”
what would yours be about?
“the art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.”

from our call center supervisor, julie, on timepiece jewelry… :)
i am a fan of loading up on accessories to create a show-stopping statement. a new trend of stacking watches has surfaced, and I’m replacing my bangles and bracelets with piles of timepieces. it may seem like an expensive endeavor, but I went the route of eBay and bought a “lot” (group) of vintage watches that had stopped working long ago. come on ladies, does it really matter if the watch is ticking or not? i scored a lot of 12 watches for a mere 11 bucks. mix it up—break out that old swatch watch that you kept in your jewelry box and slide it on next to a sleek mens ticker or a dainty bracelet-style watch (everyone’s mom has one of these, I’m sure she won’t mind you borrowing it for awhile!)
teamwork. i love it.
bleachblack had an awesome diy post last week, which i wanted to share here. especially because one of my friends already did this…
high-tail it to your local craft store and make one! for your purse, your car, your bike, whatever…
