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.

Family Love

20121226-043635.jpg

I am excited to share a custom order I had the pleasure of creating for a special holiday gift.

Via Facebook, I reconnected with a friend I haven’t seen in years. She contacted me to create a meaningful gift for her Mom and her daughters. It had to be personal, special and hip enough to span the generations. It felt important that each of them have a matching necklace showing the family love and uniting them.

We wanted the option to wear it long or to double wrap it and wear it shorter. I created it 34″ long.

The pendant spells LOVE in a funky kind of way. I created a separate pendant with swirls and crystals, it can be worn layered as a double wrap or together hanging long, or individually.

It was so much fun to capture the love of a family that has endured and survived life’s challenges in a unified way.

It made so much sense that Mom, Daughter & Granddaughters have matching necklaces.

I hope they are treasured for many, many years to come. Thanks Lori, for the honor of capturing Family Love!

Recap: Holiday Open House & ER

I am waking up so thankful for the day, family, friends and life. In the wake of the Nation’s tragedy, my day is a drop in the bucket. My heart is so thankful, grateful while filled with sadness for the pain that so many are hurting.

I think my friend Liv has a fantastic quote:

Liv has a fantastic new opportunity available called The Limelight Letters: Build Your Buzz, Rock Your Brand! Love her outlook!

Yesterday started with me taking the chickadoodle for X-ray’s on her hand from a hockey injury that was not improving. Thankfully there were no broken bones!

I scrambled through the day to finish preparing for my Holiday Open House! I am thankful to my friend Gina for helping me with last minute prep.

It was a joyful stream of awesome friends/customers..

During my open house I got a call that Keegan had been hurt and that I should come. He was about a half an hour away, Must say it was the longest drive of my life.

I am so thankful for my friends Sheila, Lori, Shawn & Tonya for allowing me to run out of the house and taking care if my business!!

Keegan’s finger was slammed in a heavy locker room door at the ice arena. They called an ambulance, but thankfully our friend Jessie was there and she is a nurse. It was so incredible to know that Keegan was not with strangers. His finger was pretty bad but they called off the ambulance and allowed me to take him in.

We spent a few long hours in the emergency room and returned home at midnight. His tip of his bone was crushed, finger was lacerated and his fingernail smashed. He was a trooper!

Thankfully he is still able to play Xbox despite the fact that it is his “trigger” finger! So he is happy this morning.

Thank you to all who joined us last night! Let me know if you would like to be added to my Holiday Blast Email sale!
