The Versatile Blogger Award!

Sorry I have not been around lately, I have been home sick with the flu....UGH.  Still need more rest but I should have done this last week!

The lovely Brooke over at has passed on an awesome blogger award to GingerKittyDesigns! The Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you so much Brooke!

The rules for this blog award include listing 7 things about yourself and tagging 12 fellow bloggers (I did 13 because it is my lucky number!)
First here are the seven facts about me:

1.  I am married to Bob Barker....yep go ahead and laugh...his name really is Bob Barker.  When I met my husband, we both worked for a car dealership.  When my future husband had a customer come in, I would page him saying "Bob Barker, come on down.....".   I can not believe he asked me out after that!

2.  Many years ago my husband was diagnosed with a serious illness and required very strong medication.  We were told that the meds may make him sterile, so if we wanted another child - we had 2 months to make that happen.  (talk about pressure!)  9 months later, our son Dylan was born :0)  (thank you God!)

3.  I have also designed jewelry using MAC pigments and made various MAC necklaces (using recycled MAC boxes) throughout the years.

4.  I have been swapping on Makeup Alley since 2004...

5.  I am allergic to bee stings, it is the only time you will ever see me running LOL!

6.  My children are my world....

7.  My name is Tracey...not Ginger LOL!

I am sorry if you are not on the list, I could only name 13 and I did my best to make it is fair as I could.  I took all my favorites and drew names out of a hat! 

My blog awards go to (in no particular order) ~ these are blogs I read on a regular basis and enjoy :0)

Busy working on my nail polish bottles....

Here is a picture of what I have been busy doing this afternoon - filling my nail polish bottles!

I asked on Twitter if anyone would like a specific color but I did not get much of a response, so I started making the colors I thought would look best.  Nfuoh flakies, Meteor Shower, Ruby Pumps, Frosty Meadows and Lunar Eclipse.  I am still looking for colors suggestions :0)

I am trying to get them ready to list in my store on Monday.....although I have already sold some in private sales.

Adding picture for Brooke....Hidden Treasures...great idea - thanks!

Adding for jbrobeck .....

I designed my own nail polish bottle!

New Nail Polish Bottle Design :0)

I have been looking for years for something like this and there is nothing on the market. I happened to work for a manufacturing company (my day job) so I was able to finally just designed my own nail polish bottle! (Keep in mind that this is raw metal and has not been plated yet)

New Plating Finish - left one

It measures 1 1/2 inches high and 1 inch wide and can be used as a necklace, purse charm, keychain or large earrings. I placed it next to a quarter so you can have some size reference .

The plan is to fill the "well" up with whatever nail polish my customers would like. I asked on Twitter @gingerkittyd and most people responded that they would like to see these plated in silver or antiqued silver. So I will have them plated in both silver and antiqued silver and maybe throw a few gold ones in there as well.
I am not sure when this will be available in my Etsy store...but I will keep you updated.

What do you think? Is it something you would like? All opinions wanted, even if you hate it.

I have started a list of polishes I may sell, but I have not made any decisions yet. As you can see, I am still working on my list.
