A small sampling of heart-themed jewelry from my shop

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone. I was pretty busy with the lead up to Christmas (making, listing and sending of gifts for the lovely people who bought things from me) plus having fun with my family. Does the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas get shorter every year, or is it my imagination? I think there should be a new rule that we move Christmas to about the 2nd week of January. Yeah, maybe not. That kind of talk could get me into all kinds of trouble with multiple religious groups.
On to Valentine's Day. I'm trying to be on the ball this year and get as many heart themed necklaces, pendants, earrings and charms listed as I can in for anyone wishing to buy a gift for their sweetheart. I usually get around to this the first week of February, so I'm trying to be ahead of the game. I know, shocking. If you are in need of something special for your main squeeze or yourself, please check out my shop here. ❤
