here, fair, and everywhere.

Happy Monday.

I think this post could have been called "clearing out my camera memory card", but I thought "here, fair, and everywhere" was WAY more creative since I'm sharing some pictures from last week, including the county fair (aren't I clever?)

I know you're anxious to see the 4-H pictures (who doesn't love pictures of barn animals), but I had to share a few randoms too.

I am loving this girl's age.  She has her own personality, which includes reading looking at books about pirates while wearing a bicycle helmet.  It fills my heart with joy and only worries me a little.

I've been TRYING to update our website with a lot of new designs.  These were a few custom orders that will soon be introduced in the shop.  

A fine silver US necklace (a heart can be stamped over a state/region of your choice)

 This is our navigation necklace, but was personalized with a name, instead.  Super cute.

Okay, what you've all been waiting for... a day at the fair (okay, it was more like an hour and a half, but it was super hot and most of the animals were passed out in the heat).  
It's still cheaper than the zoo, though.

Get away from me devil chicken, with your demon eyes.
Delaney and I were both scared of the chickens.  How can you not be, really?

I hope this pig was just taking a rest.

 Mark's cousins were showing cows, so the highlight of Del's afternoon was petting the cows.

We couldn't get her away from the horses.  She loved watching the girls' riding their horses.
Sorry baby, you're not getting a pony for Christmas.
You have a 80 lbs. dog, so I'll buy a saddle.

Forcing you to look at my family vacation pics...

Okay...get ready for a ridiculous amount of pictures and if you're my personal facebook friend, you've probably already seen them. 
I understand if you're like,

"um, I'm gonna go to a different blog now.  I thought this one was about jewelry."

Yes, it is a blog for Tag...You're It updates, sales, and giveaways. 
But it is also the only way I have time to document my pictures right now.  I used to scrapbook, but since I haven't printed a picture since my daughter was born, I try to keep my life updated on the blog. 
And THEN, every year I print from a blog book from Blog2Print.  It is SO easy- they do ALL of the work and I highly recommend it if you have a blog too.  It is even easier than the photo books, because I don't have to arrange any pages.

So, here is Myrtle Beach 2012

We had such a great trip with my parents, brother and his wife, and sister and her hubby and kids.

It turns out Delaney hates the ocean.  She spent a LOT of time digging sand castles instead...

Her cousin Harper tried to get her into the water, but she was content under her shady umbrella, digging for treasure.

We were able to trick her one day by digging a super long path from the umbrella down to the water.  They both called it a water slide and "slid" down it towards the water.  This resulted in some serious sand in the diaper issues.

When she realized she was getting too close to the water, and we were tricking her, this would happen....



Isaac spent a lot of time in the ocean...

Isaac showing off his buried treasures.

Harper was excited that she found treasure too.
Yes, it is a rock.

She's still rockin' the pacifier.  Usually she has three- one in each hand and one in her mouth, so this is progress.

This was the best picture we were able to get of the three kids.
So, yeah...

The wind made my hair look bald, but I think this is the best we're going to look...

Life through my phone

1] Delaney and her cousins, Isaac and Harper. 
These three are so rotten and so wonderful at the same time. 
2] Spending time with some farm animals on a farm where we had a family cookout.  I couldn't live on a farm, but I sure enjoy visiting!
3] our view from our balcony in Myrtle Beach
4] Good afternoon, Bella and Edward.  I am happy to see you in my mailbox.
5] pink lemonade cookies for the pool.  a little delicious and a little gross at the same time
6] adorable Father's Day candy jars that they handed out in Del's Sunday School class
7] this girl loves her ice cream.  more than me, I think.
8] she liked to hop rides on the luggage cart
9] fourth of July was HOT.  We stayed for half the parade and spent the rest of the day in the A/C and pool.
10] Neighborhood kids made a giant slip-n-slide down a hill.  horrible picture, so use your imagination.
11] she reads with a helmet on, just in case.
12] Did I mention it was hot and dry???  Every blade of grass is dead and every plant is dead.  Now, if you have green grass you're being judged by the rest of the neighborhood 'cause we know you're violating the water sprinkling ban.  Shame on you, green grassers
Mark loves it 'cause he hasn't had to mow in months.

navigation and roman numeral necklaces...

More new necklaces featured today...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these necklaces because they are personalized, but not in a super obvious way.  It is more like a secret message, unless somebody who sees it super smart at math and geography.  

We debuted this necklace at a show a few weeks ago, and it was a big hit.  This necklace includes a brass disc with latitude and longitude coordinates.  These can be coordinates for where you were married, where you gave birth to your baby, where your soon-to-be adopted child is currently located, where your deployed loved one is located, or just where your heart is...

It includes a sterling silver round disc and a sterling silver heart soldered to the center.  It is hung on a sterling silver chain.

Our other new "coded" necklace is easier to figure out, although I still don't know all of my roman numerals:) This necklace includes three sterling silver bars (you can order it with more or less- just send us an email) on a sterling silver chain.  Each bar is hand stamped with a roman numeral year- any year that signifies importance to you (the year your children were born or adopted, the year you were married, the year you graduated, etc.).

You can find the new necklaces HERE!!

New Open Circle Necklace

Whoa...I feel completely out of the loop.  We went on vacation to Myrtle Beach for a week (don't worry- I will be sure to share my smorgasbord of beach pictures lately, but no worries, there are none of me in my swimsuit).

Even though it was just a week, I feel like it was a lifetime and getting back to normal routine just seems weird, but I'll try anyway.
We have a TON of new designs at Tag...You're It Jewelry, but I haven't had a chance to share all of them!!  Some of them are listed in the shop and some design pics are still sitting on my computer ready to be listed and put up for sale.  I was starting to feel overwhelmed with getting all of the new designs ready and wanted to debut them all at once...but I think I will share them one at a time instead.  That way you can focus on them individually and appreciate them one-on-one [it is not because I am lazy and have a slow computer and I get mad at it and gave up].  

This is the new open circles necklace.  I love the simplicity of the design and that you can have one disc or five disc, whatever you prefer and suits your needs.

The listed etsy price includes THREE sterling silver open circle discs [they are each 3/4" in size] on a sterling silver box chain.  You can, of course, order less circles or more circles, just send us an email first and we'll get you all set up.

Isn't our model gorgeous btw?!  She just happens to be our aunt (our momma's sister) and a perfect model for our designs!

If you're ready to order this necklace, you can find it HERE!
