Lacy Tags & Earring Cards for Jewlery Display

I have been so busy just doing the business end; then figuring out displays; making jewelry and a having my jewelry on consignment for the past month, I haven't had time to keep up on my blog. I also wanted to get a blog started for Purple Lady Designs-obviously that did not happen yet! New Years resolution: Set up new blog! While surfing I came across this sight and was very impressed with the way Dawn came up with a clever way to display earrings. Check it out the link!

Purple Lady Designs is born again!!

I have recently started my business "Purple Lady Designs". The reason it has been born again is the history behind the name. Years ago I worked at Avondale School District as a Teachers Assistant. The students didn't know my name, and since my wardrobe at the time consisted of mainly purple I was named "The Purple Lady"! Thanks to all those wonderful students for my inspiration to name my business after happy memories of them!! Look for a new blog coming soon!!

The Purple Lady!

The Flint Farmers Market has crafters there and adopt-a-pet-I'm going to have to go check this out. They can be found at under the News/Events Tab listed as Farmers Market. I received my shipment of beads and crystals so I better get busy! Good Bye for now.
