I must tell you about the most wonderful artist on Etsy! She is fast, hard working, has a full time job in Admin just like me, and still has time to create some of the best jewelry ever! I have bought er..........um..........let's just say SEVERAL of her rings already. I call them my "play" rings! I wear them to work with my nice dress up, office attire to add a little piece of flair. It is my piece of "me". Those that know me, know I have to show a little. hee hee!
Anyway, I recently got the part as "Joy" in a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater. My character is described below......
Joy – Joe’s second wife who is half his age; very superficial; spends Joe’s money on clothes and jewelry; not visibly in love with Joe; has frequent migraines.
This is the invitation to Joe's B-day party (The Dinner Theater)
Joy (Beth Peters) Millionaire, cordially invites you to attend the surprise birthday party of the century for the dear husband, Joe. but when the surprise party runs afoul and a key family member dies, everyone becomes a suspect in the thrilling "who-dun-it" mystery! Buffet-style dinner will be served.
I contacted my very reliable artist friend Claudia from Cloud Nine Creations, because I knew if anyone could help make my character come alive, it was her!
Here is the description I gave her of my character Joy..... I was a little more open about her - LOL!!
My character is "Joy", Joe the Millionaire's wife. I overdo "RICH". I am half his age, and a gold digger! My dress is fuchsia pink with a pink leopard print neck scarf and a gold clip. My shoes, OMG, my shoes - they are soooooooo cute! Fuchsia Pink Spectator Pumps from Target with a little Gold button at the toe. You should go look at them on-line, they are so cute! I got some little gold rhinestone clips for my hair, and some VERY "Joy" pinks and golds for makeup. It will be very over done. Lots of sparkles. I am "new money" if you know what I mean. It is going to be so much fun!!! Anyway - the play is April 10th. So, I need it pretty fast. This is audience participation dinner theater, so I am in the audience talking to guest, sitting with them, dropping hints on the murder etc...... So, I will be up close and personal with everyone. There is no real stage. So, people will see my hands and stuff when I eat. So, it has to be good! Ha! No pressure! :-) Can you do it? The shoes: http://www.target.com/Merona-Collection-Clarissa-Spectator-Pumps/dp/B001HC47FY/qid=1237502807/ref=br_1_1/180-6033037-8945029?ie=UTF8&node=13621961&frombrowse=1&pricerange=&index=tgt-mf-mv&field-browse=13621961&rank=pmrank&rh=&page=6
So in a flash, this is what Claudia sent me!
"Just letting you know that I finished your pink and gold button ring! I wasn't able to find any gold colored rhinestones, but had some gold buttons. I'm sending you some pictures of what I came up with. Let me know if you'd like to change anything on them, colors or design. I thought it turned out as you described.. flashy, spoiled rotten, sparkly, pink (and the "hot" pink button is the lust part). LOL"
Is this hot or what?? It is perfect! I could have kissed her all over! Cheek to Cheek - "Joy" style of course! ha!
So, if you are into funky, fun, or even sweet and preppy jewelery - You MUST check out Claudia's store on Etsy. She has very affordable prices so everyone can afford to have a little fun! Oh, and when she ships her cute little package, she puts it in this cute little ring box that makes it even more happy! It is like Christmas when you get your package in the mail! Just what a girl wants! :-)
Have fun - and Hugs and Kisses to my "daaaaarling Claudia"! (saying this as I whisk my scarf around my neck in "Joy" fashion!)

Kiwi-Arts was founded after a long journey of visions.
One morning I awoke with a strong urge to experience paint. I wanted to feel the paint in my hands, I wanted to touch the brushes, and I wanted to mix colors all day long. I loved the feeling of paint on different surfaces. I developed a desire to apply paint, and scrape it off again, only to continue this process as visions began to reveal themselves. I studied art/painting at Spurill Art Center for the Arts in Atlanta Georgia under the direction of Chery Baird and started to fulfill my desires of freedom.
My paintings are painted by seeing beyond the image itself, and my desire to express freedom. All of my paintings are a spiritual journey and my hope is that my audience is able to feel this journey as they view my pieces.
My goal is to inspire others through my passion for life. My wish for you is to find peace within yourself, and that you listen to the small voice that is within us all. Share positive energy, and fuel others by it. Do not hold onto negative feelings, and express yourself through your given talents.
