What are they worth these days? A penny.. they can be found at the bottom of your purse, on your countertop, at the bottom of your drive through coffee change compartement of your car, perhaps you even have a full jar of them at home. These days people just don't do anything with their pennies.

Until I fell upon Wish Upon a Penny on Etsy. I was surfing my Activity, checking out a cute studio, then I checked out their faves and found this. How cute is this? Penny art necklaces. Brilliant. Use those pennies, gift them and give them a new use (or value).

This fabulous Saturday morning I’d like to introduce to you a cute shop found on Artfire – jYOUlry, so pull up your cup of coffee and settle in. Our featured shop jYOUlry is a lovely boutique selling beautiful jewelry that you as the customer can add your own sentimental pictures to. This way you can carry your love ones with you at all times.  Her items are a fabulous gift idea for Mother’s day (don’t forget this is j-u-s-t around the corner).

I just love her shop name – such a cute way to bring the YOU into your jewelry.

Here’s a little bit about our artist:

Lisa is a WAHM (work at home mom), and interior designer who recently relocated to Panama from Florida. She works late into the evening after her children go to sleep (sounds familiar, that’s when I get my work done too). Her jewelry has become a creative outlet since her relocation and I think she has found a very unique item. Her idea was born and inspired by a piece of jewelry she had bought with a photo of her two children, later when she had inquired of ordering a new one the manufacturer was no longer making them.  She felt a need in the market and then created her own creative line of jewelry with unique pieces.

All of her items are quality goods at the perfect price. Each item has your photo permanently sealed into the item of your choice with a water & scratch resistant resin.

Are you a wholesaler looking for something unique, a photographer looking for something special to give with your work or a jewelry designer wanting a special pendant for your custom necklaces? Lisa also sells her silver collection wholesale! You could also be a reseller if you are interested, you just put together the sale and photograph and she’ll send the product to you to distribute to your personal customers.

Please take a moment to check out a small selection picked by me from jYOUrly:

Recently a cool girl who I tweet with started a project 365.  If you don’t know what project 365 is – you take  one photograph a day throughout the year.  It gives the photographer a collective way to look back over the year and remember cool things that happened, and it also enables others to catch a glimpse at your life.

My Mondays will feature a montage of photos from the week that recently passed. Warning.. I do not take  art house photos, all of my days are with my little ones and with Etsy I already spend enough time with photo editing software. I’ll call this  project 52 – 52 weeks of photos. Maybe next year I’ll strive to take one each day 😀

I’ll even show you some of the pics my 3-year-old takes – she’s recently taken to my camera (I’ll probably lose control of that soon also!)
