Sawyer & the SJBC singing Shadowland from the Lion King

I am excited to share with you the video of my son Sawyer, age 12 singing a solo in Shadowland, from the Lion King with the St. John’s Boys Choir.

This is a photo of Sawyer this summer, he was helping with my photo shoot.

My Mom video’d Sawyer during the concert on Friday night. (Thanks Mom!!) Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqbiW0Bhmkk

Feeling a lot of Love…

I hope you had a great weekend filled with sunshine!

We enjoyed a slower pace this weekend than most. Sawyer had camp week for the St. John’s Boys Choir, so we enjoyed their performance at Mass at the St. John’s Abbey. I downloaded a new app for my iPhone. I love the simplicity of the operation but the images I just saved, saved in a very low quality… I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to post two of the same images, the first one I created from my iPhone app, the second the old-fashioned more time-consuming way on my computer… Just want to compare quality on my blog.

Keegan and Sawyer


A word about the boys… Keegan on the left is 12, going into middle school (7th) this year. He was irritated with me because I wanted to take a photo! Actually disgusted with me… He is not “into” photos right now! Sawyer is on the right, he is going into 5th grade this year. He was sweaty but happy. I believe it was about 90 degrees in the church and they had t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, ties and their choir gowns on. Whew! Amazing concert though! Love my boys… Kya was at a friends cabin for the weekend.

I got to spend the rest of the day yesterday creating jewelry, filling orders and preparing for The Handmade Market.  I will have more photos later of the jewelry I made this weekend.  Here is a peek at some jewelry I made at the Art Crawl.

This necklace really exudes Love…

Vintage Love

This pic is also from my new program… hope they look okay. See why I love the frames? I love this necklace… I really needed to do very little with it… wire it so it could hang on a long chain or short. The intricate detail on this vintage piece is amazing!

Hope… thinking of a friend and her family today as they wait to find out what stage her Dad’s lung cancer is. I am so tired of hearing of friends and family who have cancer. Sending lots of hope their way!


I hope you have an amazing day filled with Love and Hope!

Hugs, Kris
