Knock knock, is anyone there??


This page has been eerily quiet, not that I was ever the ideal blogger, but remember a previous post I wrote about procrastination? ..... yes, well, there you have it.

Well my friends, I shall try to make more of an effort this time around, and I shall try to talk a bit more about stuff in general rather than just the jewellery aspect of things. Ooooh I can see that you can barely sit still from that last comment. What can I say? I'm generous like that.

So sit back, relax and... well, come back later I guess until I think of something worthy to write ;) (damn you blogger for your lack of smileys!!)

Shall be back soon!! Oh and I do a new range of items to post on here too

New Logo

Just created my new logo. Really like it, but it shows a little small on the blog and facebook.

"Keep your loved ones close to your heart ♥"

Really have to get the hang of photoshop - my brain nearly exploded trying to work it out ☺

To procrastinate, or not to procrastinate, that is the question....

Well, I have finally gotten my act together and categorised all the new and sparkly things that arrived a couple of weeks ago. A procrastinator I hear you say? Well yes, just a little *blush*, but I am now on top of that side of things and it's about time to get into designing some more lovely items.

Have also been thinking further down the track about some other areas that I would like to venture into. Keeping it all hush hush at the moment, but am trying to go for a broad range of things.

On a different note, I have had a proud mummy moment today, my darling little 14 month old man took his first steps today (without the help of a walker). Soon I will be cursing his mobility, but for the moment, I am one proud mama.

Best be off, have a custom order that I need to think of designs for.

Take care

First Post

First post ever on Samantha Kay Designs.

I'm not normally one to post a blog, I do read them and I have done the odd one in the past, but it's not something I would normally do ... until now ;)

I thought it should be about time that I start up a blog for my jewellery page.

This is a new little venture for me and I must say, I am loving it! It will take me a little while to work out my time management, by hey, I'm just starting out, and nothing comes easily right?! Gotta put the hard work in. Starting out kinda slowly, but I do plan to eventually have a website if things take off.

A little bit about myself; I am married to a beautiful husband and am a stay at home mummy to a gorgeous daughter and son. I do work part time at a Call Centre, so not entirely stay at home, but you get my meaning. I started out wanting to do the hand stamped jewellery mainly because I wanted a hand stamped item of my own. I did some research and found a couple of websites that I liked. Now I can't remember what put the idea in my head exactly, but next thing I know, I'm researching stamping kits and jewellery items.
It has been a long while in the making (nearly a year) and I have been slowly adding bits to my collection.
I finally made the plunge and created a facebook page called Samantha Kay Designs where I have slowly been adding some different designs. I haven't added hand stamped items to the collections yet, as I am wanting to perfect it as best I can and am still looking around different websites to find lots of different and fantastic things.
I have so many ideas running around in this darling head of mine that I should really write it all down somewhere.

Anyways, I think that's ok for the first ramblings on my blog. I'm sure I'll improve and not sound so "Dear Diary"
