So the time has come…I’ve left my little creations in some other hands. The thought is exciting and scary all at once.
I think it’s amazing that when people go to the boutique they can see it right in their face, opposed to searching endlessly on Etsy to find one of my items. Don’t get me wrong I freakn’ love Etsy!!! I just wanted to try something different. So wish me luck in this new chapter.

March 11 is the day…the day I will wake and look into my husband’s sleeping face and wonder where these last nine years together have gone. The day I kiss my daughters feet and realize I have been doing this for nine months. The day I receive phone calls from loved ones wishing me a very happy celebration. The day I unwrap a parcel of creative inspiration. The day the birthday cake will be gluten free. The day I make a wish that will undoubtfully come true. The day I look in the mirror and I am proud of who I see. The day I thank the lucky stars for all that is me. Thirty, what a wonderful place to be.

Wow, so it’s looks as though I have been busy with my beautiful little family this past month…
I’ve been making new mini collections of jewellery, using bamboo, shell and various semi precious stones. Some are already posted on Etsy and some are going up in a couple of days or so. I also launched the bridal collection *blush by chelsy anne*. There is more good news to come, you just need to patient…2009 is going to be a great one full of endless creativity for your little hearts to soak up.
These are just two of the *tie the knot* collection. If you know someone who is getting married, please send her my way…wink.
I don’t know what it is about Brooklyn culture but man does it get me excited. Here is some work that can be found on Etsy.

These should compliment the previous additions. http://iheartchelsyanne.etsy.com
I feel like I did the week before Riley was born. My life is about to change again and all I feel like I can do is wait…I’m launching a boutique full of wonderful handcrafted jewellery on Etsy. The jewellery is made, everything is set except I don’t want to open shop until I have my business cards. Sure it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but to me it is! I don’t feel comfortable knowing that I had one customer who had something less than the next. I want to achieve a good rep from the start, and I want to be remembered from the start. This so called small business is very serious to me as I will not be returning to my full time job doing visual display (playing with mannequins and props) when my maternity leave is up at the end of March. Pretty scary and exciting knowing that everything I do will effect my own outcome. I set the rules and the pace. There is a chance that the shop won’t be up in time for international Christmas orders but I’m not worried because there are birthdays and other holidays that follow. But people should just be a fan ofchelsy anne regardless…lol I’m starting to feel like a broken record when I talk to other Etsy members…still waiting for my business cards, can’t open shop until I get my business cards… Watch the order go wrong. Now I’m starting to feel a little anxious. HELP. Here is a sneak peak…enjoy and please be patient!
As you can see, my bedroom is pretty blah…Since our baby has been born I haven’t found the time to make the bed, or put laundry away:S The art work has changed as well as the bedding, but does it really matter right now that the bed is never made. What I want to do is flip the bed to the opposite wall, turn this wall into a row of dressers, paint the walls, change the exhisting white curtains to woven shade with a colour accent fabric on top. Have some hanging plants infront of the very large window. I’ve been wanting to change this for awhile now, Christmas just seems right! Check out design sponge where I found some inspiration, I love the surfer clock!!!
I was tagged by my girl Andrea to add my six to the equation…
*one* I will never be able to take a yoga class because I’m too self conscious of accidentally letting out some gas.
*two* Listening to people breath loud irritates me.
*three* Every now and again I have to flex my middle fingers.
*four* I strongly believe that if I were to curse when a dragon fly was near, that he would come and sew my mouth shut.
*five* I’ll grow my finger nails until one breaks…currently at 1/4″ past the skin.
*six* Sadly, I have a hypersensitivity to cold dampness. When the climate strikes, I break out in hives.
I wil pass this on to neawear, a popular jeweller in Montreal.
So as I’ve been making my jewellery, I’ve started designing as few collections at once, mostly due to the stone selections. In this process I have officially decided and launched a sister brand, *blush by chelsy anne*. This is all wedding jewellery and accessories. It wasn’t planned, but I think it’s definitely the right decision! Both my little boutiques will be on Etsy. Not yet, please be patient! I’m still in the process of packaging and branding. Soon my lovelies, soon!
