Logo for Inspired By Beth

I've been working on a graphic to put on a banner for my buisness. I am not sure about it yet though. I am trying to get it put together for when I go to trades daysand craft fairs. I have an idea of what I want and have it made up but not sure about the wording on it. I am making jewelry...bracelets, necklaces, earrings. I also haveembellished hats, shirts and such. I plan on making some little clothing items for girls like dresses and such as well as bows and anything else that I come up with along the way. I am wanting to put what I have on the banner but not sure how to word it. I know it will say jewelry, but how do you word everything that I listed without having like 20 items on it? *laughs* Would Jewelry & Boutique Items work? Any suggestions?

Here is the banner:

Any suggestions on it like decoration wise is welcomed too!

A Visit From The Aunt

Grrr! I don't know why she treats me this way. She knows I am glad and get hopeful when her visit is delayed in the slightest. Then she pops in suddenly and ruins a perfectly good day. She is the house guest I cannot stand. Oh well, I guess I will start my charting adventures in the morning. I will officially become a chart stalker once again.

POAS Syndrome

I've got it. I did it. I Pee'd On A Stick. The stick was broken, it had to be. Maybe it was because it was an off-brand stick? Back to reality. The stick wasn't broken or bad because it was an off-brand. It just did not reveal the sign I wanted it to. I don't know why I did it. I could not resist any longer. I should be getting a visit from Aunt Flo in about 2-3 days. My little chart says it should start the 5th. I want to see a different sign. The + sign that brought a rush of joy over my body in May of '04. I remember that morning, I dreaded POAS. I had POAS so many times before and got the - sign every time. Why would that morning be any different? It was because God had blessed me with my amazing little girl.

POAS at 4 a.m.
Lay it carefully as the instructions say
Try not to peek before the time instructed
Peek anyway
Big smile
Never smile this big this early
Tell the dog as he is the only one up, he will keep the secret
Get back in bed
Send up a praise and a prayer
Gently kiss the Father
Send him off to work
Buy early Father's Day card
Wait for his return, the wait is long
Go out to eat
Waiter brings gift bag
Unknowing Father confused, "This is not mine"
Waiter insists, "You are the 50th customer in our promotional give away"
He reaches in, pulls out a card that reads Thomas

He questions, "How do they know my name?"
New Mother coaches him to open it
Finally he knows, "Really?" he exclaims
Tears flow
And two became three
