Moving right along! The boys are now 5 months old and as cute as could possibly be. It's so much fun watching them grow and become more aware of each other! If we put them next to each other, they will grab on to each other's hands. talk about a photo opp!! This photo above, is from their 5 month photo shoot. Yes, these boys are professional models (and we pay them with unlimited kisses!!). We put them through this once a month and at the end of the year, we will have the cutest collage of photos showcasing their growth throughout the first year of their precious lives. This has got to be my favorite photo, thus far. I love how they are both simultaneously grabbing at their toes, it's so perfect too, as it's their favorite thing to do lately!!

Aside from falling more deeply in love with these little guys, The Christmas season has come to a close. With that, I can rest a bit after a very busy and successful season! I am so incredibly thankful to my customers who make what I do possible!

Not only was it a successful season, but I feel like I have learned a lot, which is always good. I look forward to applying what I've learned throughout the year and next season and look forward to continuing to grow Glassy Chic Boutique. I have lots of new ideas and I'm ready to make them a reality!

Look out for new pieces and stay tuned!! We've only just begun..:-)

I'm back and feeling good!! :-)

Hello fellow fans!

Where has the time gone!! A little update on this ladies life, in which is as changed as it could possibly be. Our Son, Tyler Michael, was born on July 12. 6 lbs 4.8 oz. and 18.5 inches. That time already seems like an eternity ago..he is now nearing 4 months, hard to believe! Tyler is the absolute biggest blessing ever and we are in awe every single day at the blessing he is! Once upon a time, I was not so sure this time would come, after two miscarriages. But, with lots of prayer and trust in the lord, we are living the dream! My sister, Angelas son, Logan was born a mere 3 days after Tyler, as if it couldn't get any better! We are having the time of our lives getting to know these little boys. It seems they are growing and learning something new every day. I could sit and listen to Tylers coos and babbles all day! THIS is were my "work at home" job is becoming a challenge! lol 

Now Christmas is upon us, Yes..I said it. It seems people are starting their Christmas shopping earlier and earlier, with no complaint from me! So, I must buckle down and accept the help that my mom and mother in law are so eager to give. They love their little grandson, who could blame them, he's perfect! :-) I will be spending many more hours in the studio working away on everyone's lovely Jewelry and I am so excited about it. To add to the excitement, I have several new designs I will be adding to the mix. Among them, tie clips, cuff links, riveted jewelry and soldered jewelry. My husband is especially excited about the torch I just received in the mail to solder the metal. lol. Even daddies like their toys! :-D 
   Tyler was Elmo and Logan was Cookie Monster, their first Halloween was very exhausting!

               Stay tuned, I will be adding pics of my new creations as they unfold!! 
                                                I wish everyone many many blessings.<3

We are Expecting a baby BOY!! 24 weeks along!!

I just realized I had not made my official Blog Announcement that We are expecting our first child!!
I will be utilizing this blog now, for both business and baby!! :-)
We are currently 24 weeks pregnant with a due date of July 30th, 2012 (our two year wedding anniversary!!)
This pregnancy has been nothing short of a miracle in our eyes and a sign from God that he is in control!!

A little back story:
We had gone through two miscarriages in 2011. One in January and one in July, both at about 6 weeks. 
We were, needless to say, devastated. My husband Sean, however, kept me thinking positive, or at least tried to. He seemed to be as confident as one could be that we would go on to have a healthy and successful pregnancy. I, on the other hand, started to ask myself if having our own biological child was in God's plan for us. I wondered if maybe we were meant to adopt, after all, there are so many children out there in need of a healthy and happy home. I liked the idea of adopting, but couldn't let go of the desire I had to experience pregnancy and give birth to a baby that my husband and I made together. What a gift from God that would be!!

Well, in Nov. 2011, we found out we were pregnant again!! Praise God!! And guess what!!? My sister had just told me 3 weeks prior that she TOO was pregnant!! Talk about good timing!! Ok, life was good, but I couldn't escape the fear that this pregnancy would result as the last two had...talk about anxiety!!! At that point, I gave it to GOD, I began praying to him that he would wrap his arms around this little one he had blessed us with and keep him safe and healthy, that this pregnancy would be successful. I prayed like I had never prayed before, for both my sister and I and these two amazing blessings.

Well, here we are at 24 weeks pregnant and my sister, Angela, at 27 weeks pregnant, BOTH with baby BOYS!! Boy oh Boy!! ;-) There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for what he has done for us. I am truly in awe. My faith in God, that he is always there, in control and able to work miracles in our lives has been strengthened to a whole new level. I've always believed in prayer, but now I really belief in the POWER of prayer. I can't wait to meet this little miracle we have been blessed with. I look forward to teaching him about how GREAT our GOD is!! I also look forward to seeing this boy grow in Christ and be a blessing to others! I pray that God blesses all of you as he has us! Remember to always trust in him!!

Back to blogging!

I have been neglected my blogging duties over the past few months! In reflecting over this, I have become more and more aware of the importance of managing and organizing my time wisely. I am still in the first year since the inception of Glassy Chic Boutique and Oh my goodness there is always soooo much to do!! I am so so determined to make this business a success! I have always said, since I ventured into this business, that a positive attitude and belief that I WILL succeed is the MOST important. This is , of course, never enough. Every single day I am reminded of my need to manage and organize my time more efficiently. I have come up with a "schedule", however have not yet been able to get into a good routine with this schedule. I still get things done, just not as efficiently and things do get forgotten (except for my orders, those are #1!!). I vow today to commit myself fully to my schedule. Cheers to efficiency and tasks completed!! ;-)
