Omaha was OAH-MA-ZING!

More photos from Silver Bella… wish I had taken more that I could show! and more of the vendors… there were so many amazing vendors!

I do have some lovely photos from some very fun Bella’s with my handmade crowns on… really the Queen Bella’s – I was thinking of posting… please email me if you mind, otherwise I think I will post them later in the week. You were all so adorable! Please email me if you would prefer that I don’t post your photo!

We enjoyed shopping and eating in Omaha! Terrific stores and what a beautiful city!

Love the cobblestone streets, warehouse buildings and fun shops…

and the adorable courtyard… not far from where we had some terrific Mexican food.

We had so many giggles… our husbands forgot to tell us the order that the puzzle of our display went into the trailer… Dear Bellman, we are so thankful we could provide you with a half an hour of pure humor as you watched us load, remove and re-load our beautiful (and frustrating) display.

Dear Sweet, Kind Gentleman who was driving the opposite direction from us… We are thankful you stopped to help us when our top of our trailer decided to pop up (similar to pop goes the weasel). It was so sweet of you to stand in the bitter wind, snow and cold while one at a time my sister and friend deserted me for the warm vehicle (it was truly fine, I was the only one with a warm winter coat!)  It was also sweet of you to follow us for at least 10 miles before you turned around and went back on the freeway the opposite direction. It was then that we realized that you were not even going our direction. What a sweet man you are! We are hoping that we can figure out who you were by the license plate… our brains were too frozen to ask you for your contact information! We are so thankful for you!

Thank you to my dear sister who drove so I could create the whole time and to sweet Tracy who rode in the back so I didn’t get carsick! You guys are the best… wonder where our next adventure will lead us?

Hope your day is happy! Kris

Silver Bella Preparation…

I feel like this necklace really exudes Silver Bella… It’s Very Grande… It made the sparkle all by itself too!

Wish you could see it in person… the crystals wired around the exterior add a touch of magnificent bling. 

And I have the best husband in the world, he has been making the bases of the bracelets for me… he took a pic and sent it to me to ask me how they were looking. He is truly the best! The will look similar to this when they are complete!

Looking forward to Silver Bella… and thankful for my friends who are taking care of my booth in the Dollars For Scholars Women’s Expo in Cold Spring on the same night!

Cross My Heart

Do you remember the days when you had a secret… and you really trusted someone, like your best friend to not spill the beans… It used to go something like this…

Me: I have a secret

Friend: Tell me, I won’t tell anyone.

Me: Are you sure?

Friend: I promise

Me: Cross Your Heart

Me and Friend: Cross My Heart,

Hope to die,

stick a needle in my eye!!!

It never worked did it… secrets are just too hard to keep. I am not good at secrets… It’s not that I don’t trust you! I know you can keep a secret…

 I am really looking forward to the end of November when I can share how honored I am… even if it doesn’t work out… There is a chance, wish I knew the odds, but I am not much of a gambler…

 I will know then and I can spill the beans. I really don’t want to stick a needle in your eye… really!

I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed… It is difficult to walk with your toes crossed!

Here is a new necklace… I paid a gaboodle for this brooch… I adore it… I am calling it Cross My Heart … well, you know why! ($125) Is is featured on the funky chunky gunmetal color 18″ chain… I wrapped, distorted, looped, twisted, curled and manipulated the wire to keep the integrity of the vintage brooch, yet protect it and allow it to be hung by my signature large handmade bail (all of my bails allow you the versatility of switching your chains with almost any chain, chunky or delicate that you have and adore- I just love to have more flexibility with my jewelry, sometimes I double wrap my chains… sometimes triple wrap…so go to town and have fun!) 

I am a sponsor for Silver Bella. I am so excited to be a part of it, again thank you to my sister for encouraging me! I decided to create some complimentary cards for my gift to the Bella’s…  I really wanted to make a little something with wire for each of the Bella’s but as you know, my thumb is NOT Cooperating… so after doing a little brainstorming, I thought some greeting cards would be nice… You always need an encouraging card!

 This is the front of one of the cards… I think it turned out okay… for creating with 9 fingers… Too bad I am already Cherish Designs, 9 fingers designs has kind of a catchy sound! But I guess it would only be temporary anyway!

 I am a little rambly today… sorry!

I hope you have a fabulous day today… If someone tells you a secret, cross your heart!!! Kris
