Ballerina Girl, You are so Lovely ...


Lately I've been AWOL and I truly apologize.  Once there was a time that I could multi-task without batting an eye, now I can't bat an eye and chew gum at the same time.

As you know I've been a little busy trying to get my new etsy shop DellaMessina in order and up and running.  I've decided I could really use a clone to either take the photos and do the descriptions and listings  OR clean the house and cook while I take care of business ... guess if I were smart I'd ask for 2 clones to all my grunt work so that I could be free to create my passions, to blog and to visit all my favorite bloggers. :)

Today I listed some little earrings that were inspired by a favorite Lionel Richie song ... "Ballerina Girl"
Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
With you standing there
I'm so aware
Of how much I care for you

You are more than now
You are for always
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away
You make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
And when I hold you
I only want to say
I love you

Ballerina Girl

The joy you bring me
Every day and night
Holding you tight
How I've waited for your love
 

Sometimes I've wondered
If you'd ever come my way
Now that I've finally found you
This is where my heart will stay

I'm never gonna break your heart
Never will we drift apart
'Cause all I wanna do
Is share my whole life with you

'Cause you make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
I guess I finally realized
There's nothing else like loving you

Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away
Ballerina Girl...
Photo above ... I have always wanted to be able to display my jewelry on a model, but some people have objections to earrings being worn before they get them.  Since I can not afford (at this time) to purchase a fancy head mannequin with pierced ears I had to be creative.  I found a clip art of a nondescript female profile ... the ear is the most important part of the photo.  I had to enlarge the clip art to 200% to get it to human size.  Once enlarged I printed it and pasted it onto a sheet of card stock and then carefully pierced the paper ear.  She was so stoic, didn't even flinch !  I was quite please with how it turned out, in fact it looked so realistic I ended up cropping my photos to show that it was not a real human and even put a disclaimer in my descriptions.

  1. YEA! I've already added your new shop as a favorite over on Etsy and I'm sooooo happy you decided to go for it and open it up! Great name and even more importantly, great items! I love your earring "model"...its a perfect backdrop for your pretty items. You clever girl, I never would've had a doubt you could invent something perfect like that to use so functionally! Anyway, congrats and good luck with it :-)
