He Qi Updates (GWP, NEW) and Giving Thanks (your thoughts?)

It's SO CLOSE to Thanksgiving!

Today was my last day at work for the week-- I'm taking the day off tomorrow. Two day weeks are amazing and rare. For those of you who are still in school and get to enjoy the one week break: BASK IN THE AWESOMENESS OF BREAK! Put your midterms into the back of your mind for 2-3 days and just... relax, enjoy the weather (yes, even if its horrible)-- because when you start working full time, I promise that you will miss this.

Anyway, since I will be traveling until Sunday, I needed to give everyone on blog the updates!!

For BLACK FRIDAY this year, I am giving away the following He Qi Mineral Shadow deluxe samples with EVERY purchase:

The idea was that I put together a palette suitable for the Holidays. What do you think? Festive enough? :)

I will also have a Cyber Monday sale, but those details will have to wait till Sunday night...

In other news, I received a huuuuuuuuuuge shipment from Korean earlier today. Got home from work around 4:30 and made earrings until now (it's 10:10PM here).

So the following are some works I am particularly proud of. The quality is just simply great-- if I can wear them (and I'm allergic to every non-biocompatible metal on the planet), you will be able, too.

When I was young, I remember someone told me that when dragonflies come out, it means the weather will be changing very soon-- I can see it where I live! It's getting much colder in the mornings/evenings.

I saw these 4-point star links and swooned a little. They remind of high fashion shapes..

More cuffs for your lovin'

This set is gorgeous. So pure. No words can describe how happy I am with the way this turned out:

Oh goodness, some BREAKING DAWN inspired earrings:

Who has seen the movie already? Bella wears this filigree hair ornament, and I decided to make my own version of it. Quite different, but same classic goth feeling (well, mine is a bit more dark and gothy...)

I found these STUNNING dove hooks, and just HAD to incorporate them into my collection:

And last but not least

I am so, SO happy with these. I rarely have a batch of work all done in one that I can be so proud of, so today was a good day for me :D. These studs are simply adorable, but are not cheap and will go well with pretty much any outfit, dressed up or down.

It's not too late to get your orders in for the Holidays! Please send them to me ASAP so I have ample time to work on them. Also, don't forget to use the Holiday Cheer Coupons!


What is everyone doing this Thanksgiving (if anything?)
I will be visiting my parents, and then visiting with Brian's parents.
We plan to feast. :D I plan to work out tomorrow so I won't feel too guilty.. though I doubt 1 workout during the break will have and effect on negating the gluttony I will be experiencing....

What are you thankful for in your life?
At where I am right now, there are so many things I am thankful for:
- my amazing family and friends
- my awesome working environment and co-workers
- my health
- my kitties
- being lucky enough to have all I need, and most of what I want
... and so many other things. Sometimes it's good to sit down and reflect on all the wonderful, positive things happening in your life.

Will you be participating in Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales?
Well, I doubt I'll shop on Friday. It's just too hectic.
I will definitely browse some sales on Monday...

Please leave your comments below! I would love to hear from you. Though I won't be blogging, I definitely will have internet access and will make every effort to get back to during this short vacation.

Lastly, don't forget to enter the He Qi Holiday GIVEAWAY, and SPREAD THE WORD!

Much love, and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

Hi, Lisa!

Happy Turkey day - early... it's not until tomorrow, of course. (LOL)

I will be going to NJ to visit my family and hubby's family. We always have a super busy schedule when we go back home to visit (whether or not it's a holiday..).

I am thankful for my hubby of 13 years, my 3 kids, my awesome kitty, my fishy, my family (& extended family, of course), my friends, and of how lucky I am to be genuinely happy and blessed every single day.
