Wind Up & Wind Down

Well… As the spring sports wind down… Seven activities for three children is a bit much…

We are allowed an opportunity to breathe. Yes! It feels good.

The Wind Up for my show this weekend is added pressure! Fun pressure because I love what I do!

I rarely do shows… Only because our lives are so busy, but I love them! I love connecting with my customers! I love seeing you sport my creations and try them on. You guys are the best! I hope I will see many of you this weekend at the Olde Depot JUNKtion.

I made a fun supply of bracelets for the weekend!

Some pearls and lace…

A little bit of filigree…

A pretty fun variety… All of them adjustable.

I hope you can join us!

The Olde Depot JUNKtion: Wrapped Up

We had so much fun at the JUNKtion. I met so many new friends and am so appreciative for all of the amazing compliments!

The two day show was a huge success. The organizers did a dynamic job, especially for a first year event!

20130527-084230.jpg

It was a little rainy & dreary… The venue was so cool! It was a fantastic setting for a fun event!

Vintage Pearls & Lace

20130405-085121.jpg

Wow, it is so quiet! One week post surgery and Keegan is back in school for a half day!

I must admit, it is similar to sending your kids to Kindergarten on the first day. You wonder, will he be okay? I know he will be fine, but it is hard to let that protective barrier down.

It certainly is quiet here. Can’t deny that I enjoyed his company tremendously!

20130405-085546.jpg

I bought some cool pendant bottles quite a long time ago and I decided they needed a little vintage pearls and lace. They make perfect time capsule necklaces.

20130405-085813.jpg

Well, off to run some errands! Have a FUNtastic day!

Flying By…

20130222-051818.jpg

Wow, the time is flying by… I must admit, this week must have been on fast forward.

Time seems to pass much more quickly when we are busy! This week was jam packed.

Last night we enjoyed the 6th & 7th grade school band & choir concerts. As Sawyer was waiting in the hall, he was asked by the Athletic Director to sing the National Anthem for the Varsity Basketball game. It worked out perfectly between concerts.

Today the girls have their fourth game of district playoffs. They are playing for second seed for Regional Playoffs and must win tonight and Sunday to advance. Saturday is their home volleyball tournament so it should be a fun weekend ahead.

20130222-053644.jpg

I bought this big chunky bird charm at the Tucson Gem Show. I hand stamped the word fly on it and wired it up. I love the chunkiness of the bird.

I hope your days are flying past and each day brings joy and happiness to you!

Time for Some Bead Soup!

20130220-142503.jpg

It’s time for some “Bead Soup!”

A cup or a bowl?
I am super excited for the upcoming reveal of my Bead Soul & partner for the Party!

This is my second time participating and I am thrilled about my partner! I am going to open and photograph my soup today and will share it and introduce you to my partner Sandi!!

We cannot reveal the soup we sent until they receive and reveal it, but we are encouraged to tease you a little!

20130220-143102.jpg

Here is my disguised soup! Can you tell what’s in there?

Sorry, guess you will have to wait!
πŸ™‚

20130220-143231.jpg

In the meantime, here is a necklace created from some of my loot from Tucson!

And the Games Continue

20130217-103004.jpg

With valiant effort the girls were tied two ~ two in the third period. Two minutes before the end of the game our team gets a crippling penalty. With one minute remaining in the game, Kya finds herself one on two and is forced to make choice… She committed and was burned by the other player with a game ending score on us. The game ends 2-3 and we find our path on the lower bracket battling for second seed to Regional playoffs.

The girls should be proud for how they played. I believe they played this team 5 times this season and lost each game. The scores continued to get closer and they thought they had them this time.

Life is challenging that way. We are on our way to resume the battle, our third game of the weekend and three more games to win to move on to regionals! One more loss and our season is over.

20130217-104317.jpg

The rest of the story tomorrow! Have a great day.

Frosty Days

20130216-095340.jpg

Some of my favorite Minnesota moments include frosty snow covered mornings.

20130216-095616.jpg

The beauty is astounding!

20130216-101040.jpg

This is a necklace I made myself with my Grandparents skeleton keys and some other vintage love I adore. This is one that will remain in my collection!

We are on our way to game two of district playoffs. Last night the girls won 5-0 in an incredibly exciting game. Little Miss Chickadoodle scored the second goal of the game. Today is a formidable opponent, they have not lost a district game all season. We are hoping the underdogs shine today!

Enjoy your Saturday!!

Knee Deep & Chin Up

This week I am knee deep in details, deadlines & paperwork. I am trying to persevere, keep my chin up and forge ahead.

20130118-111837.jpg

Here is a necklace I created on my way home from Atlanta. I found the amazing soldered crystals while shopping at the mart.

I am so excited to create more jewelry with my new stash.

Happy Friday!

Hope you have a fun and entertaining weekend!

Mother’s Bracelet~Kris Lanae Style

Hello my friends!

Sorry, I missed you yesterday! I was busy filling orders so everyone who ordered on my holiday blast email sale will receive their orders prior to Christmas. Can I tell you how grateful I am for your love of my jewelry, to each of you who shopped my open house and my email sale! It fills my heart when I get such incredible compliments from you!

I only have a few orders left to fill before Christmas. I am so excited about the Mothers’s bracelet I made (Kris Lanae style!) that I have to share a sneak peek! I can’t show the entire thing, or Mom will have her surprise ruined. It was a little hard to photograph, but I love it so much, I am going to be making myself one!

20121219-082542.jpg

This is all I can show you right now, but it has four names. I hand stamped each name on dark metal bases, I then formed them to properly fit the curve of the wrist. I hand wired crystals matching the birthstone for each child. I am in love with it! I cannot wait to hear this surprised Mom’s thoughts on it after she opens it!

I hope you have an incredible day! πŸ™‚
Kris

More Peeking & Holiday Blast Email Sale!

20121213-084548.jpg

Meet my new friend…

I think she has been waiting for me for years, I know I have been searching for her! I found her at The Porch & Atelier! Teresa was so sweet as to part with her! So happy!

I have another sneak peek at goods for my holiday open house!

20121213-084800.jpg

I had to rig up a display to hold all of my Creative Co-op & Demdaco line items that I have for sale! Yes, this open house is also a sample sale!! Fantastic prices on my goods from both lines! I think you are going to have sooooo much fun!! πŸ™‚

The prices are lower because I realized I have been hoarding my samples and it is time to share! I even have a few of my original designs that were created into the products for sale!! Hope you can join us from 5-8 pm tomorrow, Friday December 14.

I was thinking it might be nice to offer some of the items to my friends who live too far away to attend my open house, so I was thinking I would pull together a sale list on Sunday & Monday & do an Holiday Blast email sale. If I send them out Priority on Tuesday morning, they should arrive in time for the holidays. If you have already signed up for my private virtual sale email list, then you are on the list… If not, then please email me at cherishdesigns@live.com and reference the Holiday Blast Email Sale & I will add you!

20121213-085925.jpg

I want to thank you all for the incredible response to my bracelets I showed you yesterday! They were a huge hit. I ordered more supplies so I will have a great supply for you.

Looking forward to tomorrow! Hope you can join the party!

Cheers to a better day!

20121126-100916.jpg

Yesterday was the last day of Thanksgiving Vacation for our kids… It was a laid back day, a little hockey, a little play practice, chores, homework… Pretty low key. I enjoyed creating and Tom worked on his continuing education.

A couple bumps in my day turned into great lessons!
Always shut your curling iron off if you walk away… My brand new bottle of moisturizer knocked onto my curling iron, by the time I came back to it, it had melted and puddled all over the counter. {a fire hazard for certain}

20121126-102351.jpg

I was able to save about half the bottle and my curling iron! Lol

Last night after 10pm I was getting sleepy… My eyes were dry so in the dark I got up and got my drops out of my purse… I quietly laid back in bed and put the first soothing drop in, and to my shock and surprise, it burned like crazy! I quickly rinsed my eye and upon closer inspection…

20121126-102805.jpg

I mistakenly grabbed a bottle of eyeglass lens cleaner! Wowzers, that woke me up! The good news is that eyeball should be squeaky clean!

Other than the bright green bottle color, they look almost identical. I forgot I had the cleaner in my purse! Lesson #2, Always, Always, Always read the bottle!

Looking for a better day today! So,
CHEERS to a Happy Monday to you! πŸ™‚ Kris

Dangling Key Earrings

20121028-104603.jpg

I made this pair of earrings this morning for an upcoming hop…

I am quite amazed that I slept until 8 am this morning. I cannot remember the last time I slept in. Even when i can sleep in, I wake up between 5:30 & 6… Feels so good! The boys got an amazing amount of sleep too. Sawyer crashed at 6pm last night and got 14 hours of sleep! And Keegan got more than 11! It is nice to have everyone rested!

We are off and running again! More earrings coming soon!

I am very excited about my upcoming trunk show next Saturday in Buffalo, MN. Hope you can join us! πŸ™‚

Have a fantastic Sunday!

Feeling Blessed

20121027-055031.jpg

Gosh… One of the greatest compliments of a jewelry designer is that people want to wear your jewelry. I must say that I feel so blessed by your compliments! Thank you to all who participated in my sale yesterday! It was so much fun! You make my heart sing!!!

A few have asked if my sale will be continuing throughout the weekend! Absolutely! If you did not get a chance to shop, feel free to shop away. You might want to send a few extra alternate choices, but I continued to be amazed most of the day how few duplicates there were!

I will be running today, most of the day, so it will take me until later in the day to respond.

20121027-060258.jpg

The sky last night was incredible! I got a super cool shot of the moon!

May your day be filled with happiness! πŸ™‚ Kris

Private Virtual Sale: Pinky Swear!

20121025-060940.jpg

It’s pretty rare that I make myself a necklace… I tend to wear the same couple of designs for months, switching it up occasionally, kind of odd for a jewelry junkie.

I have been collecting random elements that I have wanted to make into a necklace and last weekend I finally created a new layering necklace for myself. Nothing fancy.

20121025-062014.jpg

This morning we woke to a beautiful snowfall… My kids are so excited, I have to nudge them to keep moving… They just want to watch the snow fall.

20121025-071953.jpg

Tomorrow is my Private Virtual Sale, there is still time to sign up. {Email me at cherishdesigns@live.com} The email sale will be going out tomorrow at noon central. I will be sending a pre-sale email before the end of the day, so let me know if you have trouble opening it. I think you will be happy you signed up… Would you like a hint? Okay… The hint is {Bogohoplus}. I have a ton of inventory never shown on my blog, some early creations, some lower priced designs and I think you are going to have a blast! Pinky Swear!
{feel free to share my private sale info with your friends!}

20121025-072124.jpg

Hope you have a joyful day, I know ours will be a joyful snowy day!
