Dream Big

20130601-144307.jpg

After months of pleading by Keegan, hesitation by Moi (a somewhat fearful & protective mother), and reassurance from Dad, I caved. After only two practices, Keegan had his first two lacrosse games today. It is quite a physical sport, and yes there were numerous gasps coming from the spectators in our area… Well yes, I guess it was only me! Ha! He had a blast though!

I got a fun buy on some stamped spoons last weekend and I enjoyed creating with them the past few days. My favorite is the Dream Big! I might just have to keep that one for myself. I believe we should all Dream Big!!! Go for it!!

Today we have Kya’s first softball game and then Sawyer’s final boys choir concert of the year, the On Tour concert. Next week he is off on his 12 day tour to Canada. It is going to be a crazy few weeks!

I hope you are having an incredible weekend.

Sunshiny Saturday

Happy Sunshiny Saturday.

It is hard to believe that another week has passed in a blink of an eye. Just a few more weeks until school is out for the summer.

I am so excited about being home with my kids this summer. I know it promises to be busy, but it will be fun too.

Today in Minnesota is a sunshiny Saturday. We have very few obligations today which is unusual. I have a lot of jewelry to make, but it promises to be a joyful day.

I hope you are enjoying your sunshiny Saturday!

I Believe in Angels Necklace

20130322-082212.jpg
Do you believe in angels?

20130322-082504.jpg

I do. When I found this charm, I knew I had to get it… The message touched my heart and brought me back to a painful time in my life. As I grow older, I realize what a gift those five baby angels are.

Our journey to parenthood included five miscarriages. As a jewelry junkie, I searched and searched for jewelry to commemorate those angels. So you can see why this pendant has a special place in my heart. I listed this necklace in my Etsy Shop here. Sending a hug to each of you who believes in angels!

The sun is rising this morning, we caught it glistening on the large icicle dangling from our rooftop.

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.

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!

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

Sorry, guess you will have to wait!

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.

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!

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!!
