The new website!

In the last few weeks I have been updating and refreshing the website with a fresh new look! The last few days were a bit stressful because my site was down off and on. That just about drove me nuts! It couldn't be helped, but this is a busy time of year for shopping.

So if anyone tried to shop at Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry & Accessories and had problems, I am truly sorry and I hope you'll give it another try. You can always email me and let me know you're having trouble and I will be happy to assist you!

I'm participating in a weekly giveaway at to win a pair of Harper earrings. They'll be giving away one pair of Harper earrings every day for the next 7 days. I had to compromise a bit and offer the same style but in different colors so they would still be unique.

Please visit this cool website and enter to win the Dee-Zigns giveaway and the other fabulous giveaways up for grabs. You'll find wonderful coupons in many places you already shop and other new designers and stores you should check out.

Socially busy!

There is a valid reason why I have not posted lately, alright 8 days to be exact. I've become a twittermom and meeting many moms that have a lot going for themselves. Besides running a home, being a wife and mom, they are running fascinating businesses and blogs and many doing both. It's a great community of busy and productive women supporting one another with a lot of humor thrown in.

I tweet on twitter, stumbling cool sites on stumbleupon, posting new photos on facebook and flickr and answering many emails.

So when do I have time to make jewelry? Funny, haven't lately. I have quite a few designs that I need to complete. I would love to copy myself like that movie with Michael Keaton, 'Multiplicity" Anybody remember seeing it? The plot: A man who never has enough time for the things he wants to do is offered the opportunity to have himself duplicated. Yep, I would do it, short term.

It could get messy, as it did in the movie, but I would love to try that out for a few days. I wonder if anyone would notice the difference in work Toni, mommy Toni, wife Toni, friend Toni.
To be continued...
