Christmas Vacation

Woo Hoo! Our Christmas vacation officially started last Friday after school, but really counts this morning! How nice it was to sleep in, play on the computer while sipping my coffee, give the dog a bath, cleaned a bit, play on the computer once again........then realize it is already 11:00! Wow does time fly when you don't have to rush off to school! Speaking of Christmas vacation, it is one of our favorite movies! What is your favorite holiday movie? I started on the holiday baking last night. Only problem with that is that we might be out of these yummy butter cookies by the time Christmas rolls around!

"Treasures" Necklaces

Here is my new heart! I am going to be offering custom made necklaces made from YOUR treasures. The first of these were made for myself from my mother's jewelry and other components added "Rustic Faith"and also from some things I found in my cedar chest that were my grandfather's "A Tribute to Grandpa". The third was made for a friend from her mother's and father's treasures she had. Please contact me if you are interested in me making a special piece for you. I can use most anything. Hope you like the concept as much as I do. I love things from the past, but wouldn't it be nice to have it put together so that it isn't just lying in the drawer or cedar chest?

I saw God today

This was the most amazing site this morning. I had to stop and take it while letting the dogs out in the yard. There is so much that goes on day in and day out, that I forget to really stop and just live in the moment instead of stressing over so many things I have no control over. Seeing this and my boys waking up so cheerful and full of life is the most amazing gift I can receive. I just wanted to share. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

Vintage bottlecaps! Gotta Love em......

This afternoon I finally got to finish up my little bracelet. I got the coolest vintage soda bottle caps on ebay a few weeks ago. They even have the cork in the back. I am trying to decide if I want to add vintage black and white photos over the cork and then add resin......hmmmmm. Anyway I just wanted to share. I also played with my new Adobe Elements 7 software. Wow it is tricky! I have a lot of studying to do! ttfn

blast from the past

As we started back to school this week, I couldn't help but think about my younger days. Not that I am old, 44, if you must know. Thirty was a shocker, but at 44 I still feel like I'm in my twenties. My body doesn't really look like that or feel like that, but my mind won't let me go any further! You might call it immaturity, but I don't mind. Just this afternoon I was cleaning/playing on facebook and decided that I needed some music. Not just any music, but my new fav! 80's on 8! Have you heard of this on Sirrius? I am lovin it! So, I start thinking about high school and all the fun we had back in 1981 to 1983. Then of course I felt like my buddies should be reminissing with me. What a blast! We loved going to the lake, our favorite hang out "The Sandwich Shack". I do remember one somber sad night shortly after my next door neighbor and good friend had been killed after leaving a party. We were ALL discussing how we needed to mend our party ways. What did it take, a month maybe? As teenagers we think we are indispensible. I will be hugging my boys and giving loving lectures on having safe fun! Too bad the skating rink is not such a cool place to hang like when we were in high school. Thinking of the old days are fun, but I would not trade my life with my wonderful hubby and two beautiful boys! What do you remember about high school?

it's good to be home

After a wonderful trip to Oklahoma to visit family and friends, we are finally gettin back in the groove. Do you ever take for granted the little things surrounding you? I think that one of the sweetest comments my oldest son has ever said to me was that he was going to miss the smell of Tulsa. I said what do you mean, it was pretty muggy the morning we were leaving and he said there was a particular smell with the humidity that morning. How adorable. I lived there most of my life and never noticed a smell. Guess we all need to take advantage of really taking all the beauty and smells of where we are at all times. You never know what might move you!

Please check out my bracelets on my website!

I am hoping to play around with some more jewelry designs.

You know, my blog is not really a blog. Not that I really know how to blog like the pros, but I know this is not it! I purchased a website design from My Dream Designs and should have it up within the week or two. There I will be able to sell all my creations. Look for all the things I love in life here! Isn't that what a blog is for?

Today should be filled with fun. One of my best friends birthday was yesterday, so we always celebrate together. We are having lunch with our boys and then Brent, the boys and I will go out for b-day dinner this evening. HMMMM, maybe fasting is in my future tomorrow!
