Getting Paid to Shop. What's not to love?

I just got my "big fat savings" and wanted to share this link with other shoppers who purchase on line.  When shopping on line you just start at and check and see if the seller is a participant.  So many are.  The great part is that you get paid for shopping at your favorite retailers.  You will also see any special on-line coupons they are offering as well as your cash back.  I just have them send my cash to my PayPal account but you have it sent to your address as well.  They say it only takes about 15 seconds to sign up and you only provide an email address.  Participating vendors include Fire Mountain Gems, Mich... » Read More

Bahamas Inspired Belly Rings

I've been enjoying some time in the islands and the inspiration is incredible.  The amazing blue colors of the water and the sea life had me pulling out my Hill Tribe Silver, Blue Topaz Briolettes, Swarovski crystals and designing some new belly rings.  The water is often a beautiful turquoise and so clear that I can see the ripples in the white sand at over 30 feet.  It feels like soft silk as it passes over my body.  Here are a few of the belly rings that have the island inspiration. These beauties can be found in my Artfire Shop or at you a wonderf... » Read More
