Somehow the year has just flown by, and I have hardly touched this blog! Do I have a good reason why I haven’t been posting regularly? Not really, but I do have 4 flimsy reasons, and you can use these same excuses for just about anything.
There are many reasons to start writing a blog and there are just as many reasons not to start blogging, or to start one and then ignore it.
One article I read recently focused on getting out to meet other people instead of blogging, which kind of reinforced my recent thoughts about finding local businesses who would carry my Vampire Diaries earrings and bracelet or my handmade rosaries.
That right there would require face to face meetings, and I could probably come up with the same 4 reasons not to solicit!!
4 reasons I have ignored my blog lately
I have an appointment – that is always a good reason! A doctor appointment, an appointment with the BEACH, a dinner date, you name it!
I just don’t feel like it – this is one of my top reasons, and it is associated with number 3
Takes too much time – it really does take a lot of time, no matter how easy everyone says it is! First you have to write, then look up keywords and think of cool ways to illustrate because some people only look at the pictures!
FREE HBO/Cinemax weekend! – that’s right, because watching a new flick is always a good reason not to blog or do anything 🙂
These 4 reasons are so generic that you can use them for just about anything!!
I do like to share ideas, and new cool beads and I will continue to do that. But somehow this year has just slipped past me. I really just wrote this little article to kind of apologize for not posting much lately.
What are your reasons for not blogging? Are they the same reasons for not beading or not exercising? Or not doing anything? Comments are welcome!
Spotted on the wrist of Scarlett Byrne on the Vampire Diaries season 7 premiere was the Celtic Dragon bracelet by Bead Lovers Korner! I was really excited to see that it was chosen to be worn on the show!
The Celtic Dragon bracelet was gifted in consideration for use to the wardrobe stylist team of the CW Network series in a collaborative gift bag from The Artisan Group®.
Bracelet worn by Scarlett Byrne in the first few scenes
Scarlett Bryne as the character “Nora” wears the Celtic Dragon bracelet in the first few scenes of the long-awaited “The Vampire Diaries” season 7 premiere. The TVD episode title “Day One of Twenty-two Thousand, Give or Take” aired on October 8, 2015.
Nora is seen in this tweeted photo below wearing the bracelet, made with red sesame jasper, which complemented the floral theme in her blouse.
Vampire Diaries jewelry earrings and necklace that were spotted on the hit TV show. As seen on TV, these jewelry items were gifted in consideration for use to the costume stylist of the CW Network series in a collaborative gift bag from The Artisan Group®.
This eye-catching Blue Frost Crystal Pendant necklace is an Alyce n Maille Original Design. This jewelry design was worn by the character Elena Gilbert (actress Nina Dobrev) in the season 6 finale. Made with Stainless Steel and Swarovski Crystal.
The wardrobe stylist of top rated TV shows received our jewelry this year which is exciting for the many possibilities.
These great opportunities were made possible through collaborative gift bags presented in association with The Artisan Group®.
Wardrobe stylist gifts
This Celtic dragon bracelet was gifted to the wardrobe stylist of “The Vampire Diaries” for consideration of use on future episodes.
This cool bracelet is “unisexy” and could be worn by any male or female members of the cast.
A delicately wire-wrapped necklace of Swarovski crystal beads and sterling silver was included in the gift bag from The Artisan Group that was sent to the stylists of “Girlfriends Guide to Divorce”.
Last but not least, this lovely Swarovski cream pearl necklace was hand-linked and given as a classic style necklace to the celebrity wardrobe stylist of “11/22/63”. This is a TV-mini-series based on the book written by Stephen King.
Stephen King is one of my all time favorite authors and I have read many of his books over the years, so naturally this was an exciting opportunity for me.
Crossing my fingers that any of these three jewelry pieces might catch the eye of a celebrity fashion stylist in wardrobe and costuming and be considered for use on the shows!
Elena Gilbert from the Vampire Diaries cast wears earrings from Bead Lovers Korner on Episode 502, “True Lies”.
Gari Anne Kosanke, owner/designer of Bead Lovers Korner (http://www.beadloverskorner.com) has had her “Eternal Reflection Earrings” worn by Elena Gilbert (actress Nina Dobrev) on Episode 5:2 of the CW Network’s “The Vampire Diaries.” The episode, “True Lies” aired October 10, 2013.
Kosanke, who is a regular viewer of the CW Network’s top-rated drama, received notification that her “Eternal Reflection Earrings” were selected by wardrobe stylist Leigh Leverett for use on one of the episodes.
Leverett received the earrings as part of a Stylist gift bag initiative coordinated by art promotions and celebrity gifting company The Artisan Group®.
“It was exciting to learn my “Eternal Reflection Earrings” had been selected for use on “The Vampire Diaries” and even more fun to see Elena wearing them,” said Kosanke.
“These are ‘guaranteed to flatter,’ feminine dangle earrings that showcase reflective golden bronze Swaroski crystals paired with sterling silver “Eternity” links. I chose the “Eternity” links because — as we all know — Vampires can live forever.”
Did you know these unique earrings worn by Elena Gilbert on Vampire Diaries season 5 were made by Bead Lovers Korner?
These unique earrings were gifted to the wardrobe stylist of the CW Network series in a collaborative gift bag through an opportunity with The Artisan Group.
As seen on TV – worn by Elena Gilbert
I was excited to learn that these “Eternal Reflection Earrings” were selected by the Vampire Diaries wardrobe stylist and then worn by “Elena Gilbert”, played by actress Nina Dobrev, on the Vampire Diaries season 5 episode 2 “True Lies”.
These exclusive earrings are made with Swarovski crystal beads and sterling silver. I used the infinity link because somehow it seemed appropriate since vampires can live for eternity – a simple dangle of bronze reflection connected for eternity.
This limited edition is still available for those fans of the show who are collectors of Elena Gilbert outfits.
Not a fan of TVD? These are elegant two-tone earrings that are great for any occasion and also make great gifts for women!
