There is a life....

I recently found out that HOPE FOR HORSES was robbed by a couple who attended last years auction. With that said Jupiter's Muses is proud to announce a donation of several necklaces to this years event.

Saddle Up at Sunset with Hope For Horses

Silent Auction: 6:00
Live Auction: 7:30

Entertainment by the Joe Slick Band

Tickets $65 - Online registratin available soon

Westin Lincoln Square
600 Bellevue Way NE
Bellevue, Washington

RSVP by October 15, 2007. Attendance is limited. Raffle tickets, sports memorabilia, artwork, jewelry, travel and more in a silent and live auction to benefit the work of Hope For Horses. Join us for sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Cocktail casual or western attire appropriate.

This is Dahlia. She’s one of the nearly 150 horses we have worked with over the years. When Dahlia arrived, she was more than 200 pounds underweight and near death. Originally destined for slaughter, she was bought by a family who intended to sell her for profit. But while they were waiting for a buyer, they didn’t see any need to feed or take care of her. And Dahlia was slowly starving to death. Today Dahlia is happy, healthy, and has a job! She acts as a mentor for new horses at the barn, helps teach animal control officers and others what to look for in neglected or abused horses, and is a patient and kind companion for children and adults.

Won’t you please help us restore hope in other horses like Dahlia?

need sleep

I went to bed early maybe 9pm....hoping to get some extra sleep. But that was not to happen, I was up at 2:17 this morning! Strange that I had some idea I would sleep longer if I went to bed earlier. I awoke with the pile of cats, all four of them pinning me down in a delightful way. I have been so busy as I have left for a few days and have to make up the missing time at double speed. Hope you are all well.

it's a perrrrrfect world

Well if you thought......

That it is strange that Ang hacked into the blog ....think again. She has my life under better order than I. REALLY. If or when I die she will pop in and help poor Bruno get through the maze that accumulates in ones life. And it has been a huge life....She knows everything. passwords, bank stuff and all. She has spent the last year creating Jupiter's Muses and I the lowly artist sits here , boggled by all the details. Her mind is an amazing go getter done, thinking on the fly like few I know.( I know 4 people like that, but only two that I wish I had the same processes ) Her drive for perfection only rivals my mom. The one and only thing I really am truly jealous ( green with envy) of in anyone. At least I admire the right thing, huh? The process that is required to create Jupiter's Muses would have stopped me many months ago. So if you are kind enough to stop by and give a peek of what you think that would help out heaps. Ang has worked like a crazy person on this and she just needs your raw thoughts. We look forward to hearing from you all. Hope that everyone is fine and doing well.

Jupiter's Muses

Hi All,

This is Ang and I've hacked into Temera's Blog for just a moment of your reading. Please bare with me.

As you may or may not know Temera has opened a online store (Jupiter's Muses) selling her handcrafted jewelry, handcrafted swivel hook pendants, magnets, bookmarkers, and note holders etc.

I am always looking for suggestions with our website, blog, and myspace trying to read up on the latest tools to help it look more ascetically pleasing.

A new camera was purchased this week and I am currently re shooting her work and working to make this more ascetically pleasing as well. I've posted new pictures on the blog as well as the website yesterday.

I am also setting up a store at Etsy in the coming days.

Getting to the point:

I want your feed back on the blog, and website.

Go to my blog and leave it there. Tell me your likes and dislikes. I want to know what you think. You are consumers, friends, family, and anonymous lurkers. I am attempting to compile a demographic of our readers and viewers.
  • Would you like to see dimensions in the descriptions?
  • Are the descriptions to wordy?
  • Are the descriptions to vague?
  • Spacing
  • Does the layout bother you?
  • Pictures not big enough?
  • Pictures too big?
  • Pictures not detailed enough?
  • Too many pages?
  • Can the links be followed?
  • Did you find any broken links?
  • Prices?
  • Too High in Prices?
  • Too Low in Prices?
  • What has held you back from making a purchase?
  • Does the merchandise appeal to you?

These are honest questions I have and would like to receive honest answers and feedback. Go to my blog and let me know..I'll put a post up shortly.

And now back to the Farm Fairy Report.

My visit to Bruno

for the third week in a row.....has been amazing. He has relaxed and does not feel the stress of dealing with the home rebuild/fix thing. Will post photos soon. Have been repairing the plumbing issues as well as the electric.....yes on my own...yes with a few leaks on my head and a few zaps. nothing to worry about.

where I should be.....

I hope you forgive me Bugaboo!

I am pretty sure I am going straight to hell for this...and I feel like a schmuck for not seeing the date before this morning a few minutes ago. I should just pack my bag grab my keys and swap trucks and get back to Everett as soon as my ass could move. The thing is I spoke to ANG and told her were I was going and she did not say " oh no Missy you have already made plans what are you thinking?" So now here I am unable to sleep because my word has gone down the toilet....and to a kid.....oh I am going to hell for this one. How in the world am I to make up this one I do not know. Any ideas? September is the crazy month of Birthdays...Bruno, Bugaboo and Mom....

I was to drive out earlier but...the Ford dealership has real issues....I had other plans.... it has turned out to be easier for me to go see Bruno than him to me...Why ???? Well because he can not work on the house if he is not there...hence he gets a little more rest. So I picked up his truck from the dealer and then drove her on over.The new builder will come out on Monday and start the garage that we had to tear down as the last builder made a rats mess of the whole thing. We have had one series of chaos and problems with the trades and one hopes the worst is behind us. Anyway it is warm here and the wind is really nice.I'll post more photos in the next few days. I Hope you are all well and life is good.

I hope to be forgiven ...... Happy Birthday Bugaboo!!!!
