Polar Vortex = Minnesota Cold!

I bet you thought I was frozen!!! I am sorry you haven’t heard from me for a few days!

We are on day two of frigid sub zero temps caused by a polar vortex. Our governor cancelled schools statewide, churches and some businesses have been closed yesterday. No school today for the second day!

With 46 degrees below zero windchill, it is a perfect day to stay bundled and cozy in our homes.

This weekend was Sawyer’s 8th grade rite of passage to have the baby for the weekend! Three nights of newborn crying, feeding and diapers. He started off multitasking.

Sharing Comments like “I am waaaay too young to have a baby!”

He also discovered that it is impossible to sleep and feed a baby at the same time. FYI, it is not a real baby, the baby is computerized to act like a real baby! Put school had 12 babies and every student in eighth grade gets to experience what it is like to care for a baby. We are so thankful to have Sawyer’s behind us!! Two down, one more to go!

Now that the holidays are over, I can start sharing some of the custom orders that were surprises.

This necklace I created with a family keepsake, her Grandma’s brooch. I love how it turned out, the brooch is the star and the supporting elements help the brooch shine!

I hope you are staying warm and cozy through the frigid temps!

Xoxoxo, Kris

Stunning Sunsets

It was such an incredible evening last night at Sawyer & Kya’s track meet. We actually had high seventies, the sun was shining and it could not have been more beautiful.

Of course, I had to take advantage of the fantastic opportunity to create.

I made two cuffs and two necklaces in the four hours while watching events.

It wasn’t all sunshine and happiness. Sawyer had a tough time in one of his events. I snapped a photo of him and you can see the defeat on his face. I got the “Mooooom” comment, but it is such a cool photo I had to share it. Some of the life lessons that sports offer kids is how to win AND how to lose.

The sunset on my drive home was nothing short of dynamic.

As I drove away, I was stunned by the beauty in my mirrors…

It was fleeting, but I could not resist snapping a few shots.
