Spring Showers Bring March Flowers?

The spring showers were consistent throughout Saturday… Melting some of the fresh snow from earlier in the week.

As I mentioned I started feeling a tad bit of spring fever, so I started creating some jewelry using spring and bright whimsical colors.

Ringing In The New Year!

Wow! I can’t believe I made it to Midnight!! Happily Ringing in the New Year! Quick to sleep …and awake at 6am… Embracing the new year with Gusto!!

Yesterday was a day I was looking forward to! I had the pleasure of spending a fun morning with my friend Chris and her family.

My friend Chris is an incredibly giving person! She is one of those friends that even though our crazy lives do not allow for us to spend a lot of time together, when we do, it’s is like there was no time lost between visits. When we moved here, she so generously offered to watch my kids when I was in a bind… Always willing to lend a hand.

She was such a great support with our Relay for Life team and we bonded through my Mom’s cancer diagnosis. She has a special connection with my Mom having lost hers to cancer. Sadly she also lost her father and sister to cancer. So you can imagine how heartbreaking her diagnosis was this fall. I tear up every time I think of how challenging it must be to muster the courage to face this disease after having lost so much to it. Chris is such an inspiration!

She has been known to deliver a meal to many families over the years. I had been trying to come up with some type of memorable gift to give her, that would be treasured more than a delivery of hamburger helper {smirk}. Knowing that Chris and her girls are very crafty, I thought it would be fun to have an earring making party.

I brought all of the supplies, and we had such an amazing time creating funky wire earrings.

Here is a snapshot of a few of their fantastic creations:

They did such an amazing job of creating! Here is a photo of all of them wearing their new accessories. {I wasn’t really photo ready!}

It was a day I will treasure… Her Sweet daughters are so mature and gorgeous! I am so thankful that she is feeling well after three chemo treatments have been conquered! Thanks for a FUNtastic day!!

Happy New Year my friends!!

Goodbye 2012…

It is amazing how quickly time passes and a year slips by…

While the year was filled with challenges, it has also been filled with many accomplishments… I am filled with GRATITUDE for the amazing blessings of both challenge and opportunity, for with out both, the blessings would not have been so sweet!

I am grateful to my FRIENDS here on my blog. You lift me up in your presence and friendship and for that I am incredibly THANKFUL. I am amazed that my blog readership more than doubled this year and I welcome all my new friends. I am so excited that you are here with me.

2012 offered many lessons… I am always eager to look at my experiences and discover the lesson to improve.

I am blessed by new business relationships in 2012, boutiques new and old that do such a fantastic job of selling my jewelry, I appreciate you!

Working with Creative Co-op has been a rich blessing in my life… Designing for them has brought such joy to my heart. I love hearing from customers & boutiques that purchase my jewelry all over the country! It is such a gift!

My FAMILY: the health of my kids, husband, parents, sister and family I am so grateful for. Even challenging news like my Dad’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s was a blessing in disguise as doctors feared ALS or a brain tumor. We successfully completed 2012 without a surgery for Keegan! While we know that 2013 has a surgery in store for him, we are so thankful for great medical care.

I am incredibly blessed by the opportunity to create and do what I love.

I wish the best for you and your family for 2013! Please be safe as you celebrate New Year’s Eve!

May your WILDEST DREAMS come true in 2013!
Hugs & Love!
Kris
