Doctor Who Watches

I'm a time travel fan.  I collect movies and TV shows on DVD that have anything to do with time travel.  But when my daughter started watching Doctor Who, she told me "Mom, you have got to watch this"!  "Ya, right" I told her.  I caught a glimpse of one of the original shows back in the early 70's and was not impressed.  So I told her "no thanks".  She kept bugging me, even gave me the complete 1st season from a friend.  It took me about 3 months before I decided to watch it.  It took me several episodes, but I got hooked!  Then she told me that Christopher was The Doctor for only one season.  NOOOOOO.....How can that be?!  Then she told me that David Tennant was taking his place, she said "you know, the guy that played Barty Crouch Jr."  You have got to be kidding me!  That evil guy on Harry Potter?  No way, yuck!  She insisted that I would love him.  She was right, I fell in love with David.  Now that I'm just getting used to Matt Smith as The Doctor he is going to leave.  Oh well, it's a good show.  And it better never be a woman! This is a man's role.
One of my friends daughter has made all the items from clay in these watches except the Gallifreyan one, that one I did with shrink paper.

New watches - Archeology, Waitress, Doctor and Optometrist

I was searching Etsy one day with the word "tiny" in hopes to find new things to put in my watches.  Wouldn't you know, I found this listing for "tiny" bones!  Right away I thought of archeology and making a watch with a "dig" in it.  They were in a little glass vial so I sent a convo to the seller asking how many bones I could get without the vial.  She sent me a pic back that showed many bones and a ruler.....PERFECT!  Here is what I came up with.

The waitress watch came about because I had made a pen for the waitress at our Sunday morning restaurant the we frequent and one for the owner.  This watch can be made with the restaurant you (or someone you know) work at in the background.  I tried painting inside the clear dollhouse glass to make it look like there was tea or pop in it but it just didn't look right.  So I just added some clear glue to make it look like there was water in there.

I have had a few requests for Doctor Watches but never came up with anything.  It was easy coming up with the Nurse Watch but the Doctor one was a little bit more difficult.  Finally came up with this one.

Funny thing happened with the Optometrist Watch.  I had an eye appointment coming up in April and that gave me the idea to make one for an optometrist.  That morning I hurried to finish the watch and brought it to my appointment so I could get some input on it.  Showed it to the receptionist and an assistant, they thought it was cute.  So I showed it to the doctor after he was done examining my eyes....HE BOUGHT IT!  It wasn't my best work but he loved it just the same.  This isn't his watch, this is and the silver case one are for sale on Etsy.  Will be adding them to my other shops as well.

I am having so much fun coming up with different watches, I just hope people buy them.  Would be nice if I could have someone come in and clean my house, make meals and do the laundry so I could work on watches all day.

Let me know if you would like to see your occupation in a watch, even if you don't buy it maybe someone else will.

Thanks for stopping by!

I have watches now, 2000 of them!  After working with two failed sources last year to obtain watches I was finaly contacted by someone that was trying to get the same watches. She had contacted a manufacturer about making the watches but could not aford the 3000 watches needed to make up an order. After working with this company for nearly 6 months we finaly got our watches.  I have been very busy with custom orders and regular sales. It's fun to be back creating watches again. When I first started out I could get only gold cases, now I can get silver as well.  Check our my website won't you and take a look at all the watches I have made in the past 6 years.

You will find my more common ones: Nurse, Phlebotomist, Dentist, and Teacher. I also have a lot of custom watches I have made, many of them are with children for their mothers or grandmothers and ones with pets. There are also hobbies and interests, sports, seashells and sea life, businesses and religious.

I have made up a new one - Emergency 911 Watch.  It has a medic symbol background, 911, a Maltese cross, fireman's hat, and hatchet.

Here is a custom one I recently made for a Wildlife Biologist.  It features an owl, ferret and prairie dog.

My watches tell a little story, all in miniature.  Contact me if you would like a custom watch with a little story, like these 3 custom watches.

Don't forget to check out my website.  You will also find links to the shops I have were you can purchase watches.  Thanks!

Pens to match the watches.

I have started making pens that match the watches I make.  I also custom make them, so if you want to see something special in a pen let me know.  The first picture here is a Phlebotomy Pen and Watch.

This is the first Autumn Leaves Pen that I made.  Might have to rethink how I do this one as it was a lot of work.

Here is a Seashell Pen with a Seashell Collection Watch.  I love working with these tiny shells.  I couldn't put as many different shells in the pen as I do the watches because there is not as much room in the pen.

I didn't have any watches made up to match these pens when I took the pictures and right now don't have any blank watches to make them (shipment coming soon).  The Starry Night Watch has an angel in it.

Trying to put these pictures in the right place is frustrating!  But anyway, here are the Sewing, Teacher, Nurse and Starry Night Pens.  The Teacher Pen can be personalized with teachers name above the school.  If no teachers name, I write things like: 1+1=2, ABC, 123.

Have a great day!

Making pillow boxes and waiting for my watches.

I just looked at my last blog, it was over a year ago!  Where has the time gone?  A year ago I thought I was going to have to look for something else to make because the manufacturer of the watches I use went out of business.  Then a guy found my site and ordered 10 watches and 10 pens for his business.

Here is what I came up with for his business, very simple, but just right for a guy.  His company is about putting coupons and ads on paper grocery bags.  So, the background of the watch is a paper bag.
He has many business connections and was able to find my watches for me.  I received a small order to start with and now expecting a very large shipment soon.  He has promised to keep me busy with orders that he is getting form other businesses.

I have started making these pillow boxes to put my watches and pens in.  I had to come up with my own design since I could not find a pattern the size I wanted on the Internet.  Went to Michaels Arts & Crafts and found this 110lb card stock paper in 5 colors then bought paper rafia ribbon to dress them up a bit.  I don't want to get too fancy because some of these are going to guys.

 I fold them so that all the printing is on the inside.  Added "My SR Creations" on the inside of the box, didn't want to send them thru the printer again.

I like how they turned out, just the right size for one watch or one pen.  This seashell flower watch is for sale on my shop.

Here are the different colors.  In this pic the back one looks kind of pink but it more of an ecru.  The crossword puzzle in this watch is for sale on Etsy also.

I have this feeling that I will get my large order of watches tomorrow.  I sure hope so, I have about 30 orders to fill!  Back to making boxes, I want to be prepared when they do come.

Have a great day!

Why I Love Sunrider

I trust Sunrider. Can you say that about the grocery or health store where you buy your foods /supplements? They are in the business to make money, not to make you healthy. Sunrider helps us earn a living and be healthy, too.

Quality. Most companies chop up the whole plant, put it in a capsule and put it on the market knowing it will sell. No research is done on the plant or it's effects. With Sunrider, Dr Chen knows exactly which part of the plant is best to use (he is a master herbalist), how to combine with other plants, and researches the effects for as long as 10 years before putting it on the market. This is what he did, and more, (taking up to 40 capsules a day!) before he started selling MetaShaper. Dr Chen loves what he does, creating new products and helping people. All products are made under pharmaceutical conditions, not just food safe conditions. Also, man can not duplicate the nutrition found in whole foods. Foods are whole foods not isolated vitamin/mineral supplements or medicinal herbs.  They are 100% pure food, no additives, no stimulants, no chemicals.  

What about the cost? You can't compare Sunrider’s cost to other products because of the quality, there is just nothing like them on the market. Some of the products like SunnyDew (stevia), Golden Seal Root, Dandelion Root, White Willow Bark, Calcium Tablets, and Citric C Tablets, can be purchased in stores, but it goes back to quality. Can you really trust the quality of other manufactures? AND Sunrider has recently LOWERED their prices not raised them.

OK, so this is something like an MLM/pyramid thing. You have to like what you do, for many people the home sales plans are fun for them. For me, I've been down the road before with other MLM businesses. The first one had us going to meeting after meeting, where they would have tons of books and tapes to purchase on how to become a multimillionaire. Signed up only one person with this one and made some sales. Then there was the make-up “home party” one, were I had to buy a kit with lot of make-up to demonstrate with and go to classes to learn how to do it. They were fun, but I never got anywhere with it. I didn't get many bookings and no one signed up. With Sunrider, I use and love the products. I enjoy helping people with their health . I have people in my down line and people buying products from me.

When the body is given the proper combination of “whole foods”, it rewards you with good health. The body is designed to recognize whole foods not chemicals.

Owner Expertise. Dr. Tei Fu Chen is a world-renowned herbalist and his wife, Dr. Oi-Lin Chen is a western medical doctor.

They manufacture their own Exclusive High-Quality Products. Unlike other companies products that are manufactured elsewhere and private labels put on them.

Herbal foods are unique. Distinctive, Concentration, Water Soluble Plus Oil Soluble Nutrition, Combination, Variety, Purity, Safety, Total Body Nourishment, Shelf Life.

Has the Highest Standards of Cleanliness and Health. Farming standards are so high that the imported herbs do not have to be sprayed with pesticides OR herbicides.

Is Well Established. Over 42 countries, 22 worldwide offices. They own and operate their own international headquarters and manufacturing facilities.

Foods and Products Have a Proven History. Over 26 years of keeping families healthy.

Makes Exclusive Herbal Based Skin Care Products. Vegan friendly!  Does not use recycled refined vegetable oils or rendered animal fats.

Provides Products for a Healthy Home. Household and personal care products made with herbs and natural ingredients.

You don't have to eat just Sunrider foods. I start my day with Calli, NuPlus and a Sunbar. For lunch I mix NuPlus in with a smoothie and eat healthy chips or just mix in with almond milk and eat a sandwich. For dinner I have a regular meal, starting with a salad of coarse.  I also consume their herbs in capsule form.

Bottom line - I know I am healthier from consuming Sunrider foods and teas.

See my website for more info.

I'll be writing more about Sunrider's products so check back or follow my blog.  Have a healthy day!

Christian Watches and Tiles

Here are 3 watches with the Bible verse "Trust in the Lord with all your and lean not on your own understanding."  Proverbs 3:5

I have them listed on Etsy

I may not have the exact cross, hands or Bible.  Email me as to what you would like with the verse and I will send you pics of what I have.

These are some tiles I have started to make.  I have them listed on Etsy only right now.  I'm still trying to figure out the shipping on these.  I have them listed for $5.00 a piece with shipping at $4.00 for one.

I am starting to pictures of flowers, old churches, pets and people on them.

The one above:God will work His plans, in spite of our mistakes. 

"I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, then live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is."

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."  Pr 3:5

"Forget the former things:do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!"  Isaiah 43:18, 19

Let me know what you would like to see on a tile.
