Cancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. They want security and comfort yet seek new adventure. Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt yet have strong intuition, powers of observation and will stand up for what they believe in. A Cancer friend is a friend for life. When thinking of colors for Cancer think of moonlit seascapes-pale blue, silver, pearl, glistening white, emerald green. Jewelry associated with Cancer women can be found in my Etsy shop under “sections” or in the regular listings. http:www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu
I just received a package of beautiful organza jewelry pouches from China. From this day on every necklace and bracelet I sell on my Etsy site will be placed in one of these pouches at no extra charge. They come in 6 different colors and will be suitable for gift giving or just as a little protection in your jewelry box. These pouches are transparent so the jewelry can be identified without opening the pouch.
I am very pleased to be able to add this feature to my Etsy shop and hope that my customers enjoy the extra care and thought I give to them. Come see my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.
I just listed the jewelry associated with the Astrological sign of Taurus. You’ll find the jewelry for that sign in the Sections portion of my shop. Maybe you’ll see the perfect piece for Spring.
Good question. I make jewelry because it satisfies my creative urges. I would love to draw pictures, but I have no talent for this. I have produced all sorts of needlework such as sewing, knitting, needlepoint, crocheting, making afghans for each of my offspring, even grandkids and babies as they come along. But I don’t do much of any of those things anymore. Cooking doesn’t appeal to me, nor gardening. I don’t have the energy to tend to a yard and I don’t have nuch of a yard where I now live, but I have pots of greenery on the porch. I have to remember to water them.
However, I can excel in making jewelry. I search the various sources for beads that have character, color, design and a different style. I am completely addicted to making necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I haven’t counted but I may have almost 200 jewelry pieces.
I recently disposed of the bed in my guest room and turned it into a studio so I can spread out and not have to clear the table when guests come for dinner. When I wander into my “studio” I am immediately struck by the need to work on the current project. I lose myself in it.
The fact that I have not sold a piece of jewelry in more than 4 months depresses me, but doesn’t deter me from making something new, or finishing a project started a while ago, or, making a trip to the bead shop.
My Etsy store is at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu
Some of my jewelry is on Ebay as well as Pinterest, classifiedads and a few other places.
I’d like to hear your comment. I’ll reward you with a piece of my jewelry in the color you prefer.
Aquarians love to think and put their ideas out to the world. They also love to think they’re right! They are inventive and original;also sympathetic and compassionate. They love the latest gadgets, gewgaws, computers and next-generation technologies. The great strengths of the Aquarius-born are their vision, intellect and humanity.
My daughter is an Aquarian and she fits this description to a T.
Aquarius is an air sign. Think of rainbow colors, ultramarine blue, green, violet, turquoise. You will find these items at my Etsy shop,http://etsy.me/1frBTjL
Just when you thought you’d heard it all . . . .
This scam is actually very clever. This one could easily slip by most anyone – beware of people bearing gifts. The following is a recounting of the incident from the victim:
Wednesday a week ago, I had a phone call from someone saying that he was from some outfit called: “Express Couriers,”(The name could have been anything) he asked if I was going to be home because there was a package delivery for me that required a signature . The caller said that the delivery would arrive at my home in roughly an hour, and sure enough, about an hour later, a uniformed delivery man turned up with a beautiful basket of flowers and wine.
I was very surprised since it did not involve any special occasion or holiday, and I certainly didn’t expect anything like it. Intrigued about who had sent me such a gift, I inquired as to who the sender was. The deliveryman’s reply was, he was only delivering the gift package, but allegedly a card was being sent separately… (the card has never arrived!)
There was also a consignment note with the gift. He then went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol, there was a $3.50 “delivery verification charge,” providing proof that he had actually delivered the package to an adult of legal drinking age, and not just left it on the doorstep where it could be stolen or taken by anyone, especially a minor.
This sounded logical and I offered to pay him cash. He then said that the delivery company required payment to be by credit or debit card only, so that everything is properly accounted for, and this would keep help in keeping a legal record of the transaction. He added couriers not needing to carry a bunch of cash, would make them less likely targets for robbery.
My husband, who by this time was standing beside me, pulled his wallet out of his pocket with the credit/debit card, and ‘John,’ the “delivery man,” asked my husband to swipe his card on a small mobile card machine. It had a small screen and keypad where Frank was also asked to enter the card’s PIN and security number. A receipt was printed out and given to us as our copy of the transaction. He then said everything was in order, and wished us good day.
To our horrible surprise, between Thursday and the following Monday, $4,000 had been charged/withdrawn from our credit/debit account at various ATM machines. It appeared that somehow the “mobile credit card machine,” which the deliveryman carried now had all the info necessary to create a “dummy” card with all our card details after my husband swiped our card and entered the requested PIN and security number.
Upon finding out about the illegal transactions on our card, we immediately notified the bank which issued us a new card, and our credit/debit account was closed.
We also personally went to the Police, where it was confirmed that it is definitely a scam because several households had been similarly hit.
WARNING: Be wary of accepting any “surprise gift or package,” which you neither expected nor personally ordered, especially if it involves any kind of payment as a condition of receiving the gift or package.
Also, never accept anything if you do not personally know or there is no proper identification of who the sender is.
Above all, the only time you should give out any personal credit/debit card information is when you yourself initiated the purchase or transaction! Pass this on, it may just prevent someone else from being swindled.

Enjoy your shopping in style.
AND THEN IT IS WINTER You know … time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is… the “back nine” of my life and it catches me by surprise…How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that “I was only on the first hole” and the “back nine”was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is…my friends are retired and getting gray…they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me…but, I see the great change…Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant…but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d become. Many have already gone to a better place. Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore… it’s mandatory! Cause if I don’t on my own free will… I just fall asleep where I sit! And so…now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though I’m on the “back nine”, and I’m not sure how long it will last…this I know, that when it’s over on this earth…it’s over. A new adventure will begin! Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn’t done…things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime. So, if you’re not on the “back nine” yet…let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don’t put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether you’re on the “back nine” or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life…so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember…and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!! “Life” is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY ! HAVE A GREAT DAY Remember “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. LIVE HAPPY IN 2013! LASTLY, CONSIDER THIS: Your kids are becoming you……but your grandchildren are perfect! ~Going out is good.. Coming home is better! ~You forget names…. But it’s OK because other people forgot they even knew you! ~You realize you’re never going to be really good at anything…. especially golf. ~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don’t care to do them anymore. ~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It’s called “pre-sleep”. ~You miss the days when everything worked with just an “ON” and “OFF” switch.. ~You tend to use more 4 letter words …”what?”…”when?”…” ??? ~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere. ~You notice everything they sell in stores is “sleeveless”?!!! ~What used to be freckles are now liver spots. ~Everybody whispers. ~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet…. 2 of which you will never wear. ~~~But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!! Stay well, “OLD FRIEND!” Send this on to other “Old Friends!” and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!! It’s Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived. TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU’LL EVER BE, SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.
