At the first of the year I decided to make a change.

As some of you may know from my previous posts I have been learning metalsmithing. I eventually wanted to concentrate completely on this.

Also, some of you may not know this, but not a week has gone by in my MiaSophia shop without someone asking me if I am affiliated with Lia Sophia, a popular jewelry line somewhere, although I had never heard of it until I opened MiaSophia. This was a particular sticking point with me. I have never been one to follow a crowd and never wanted to be like anyone else except the skinny girls!

So, on January 1 I struck out on a new adventure, a new shop. I am now It is solely my metalsmith artisan jewelry, hand crafted by me.

I have also started a new blog: it is

I hope you will follow me there as I am trying diligently to find the rest of you!

Hope to see you there!

Happy Birthday!

It's my beautiful daughter Claire's birthday today. I can't believe she is already 14.

She was a surprise baby (found out about the pregnancy on my 30th birthday! A double whammy). I wasn't happy about it, but had I known the gift I was being given, I would have been overjoyed beyond words. She is my proof that God knows what I need more than I do, ten times over~

She has been such a blessing in my life and the source of so many happy moments~ I love her more than I can express!

Happy birthday my precious girl!

Happy Christmas!

This month has been extremely busy and, now we are down the the wire, I find myself exhausted at the end of the day.

My etsy shop exploded this season and one weekend I sent out 20 packages, not just items, but packages! I can't explain what happened but I was looking forward to the day I would close down. Between trying to get orders out and trying to prepare for my family I needed to be three different people.

Well, all worked out, and, on this eve of Christmas Eve Eve (as my kids call it), I am now finished with my shopping, have purchased all the necessary groceries, wrapped (almost) all the presents. I am greatly looking forward to spending the next few days with my girls, making cookies, watching christmas movies, and playing games.

I hope this finds all of you with peace and happiness this season.

Merry Christmas~

Snow Day!

Here are some pictures of our snow day here in Pearland, Texas.

While some of you may be up to your knees in snow, this is a once-in-a-year-if-we-are-lucky type occurrence.

Although they didn't cancel school they did let the kids out of class to play in it! Yay teachers!

This is now BIG the flakes were. They were like mini snowballs hitting the ground.

It all melted off within a few hours. I would have taken more pictures but I thought it would stick longer. It was amazing while it lasted.
