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

Today is the Sale!

Super excited! Today is my Private Virtual Sale at 6pm central time. I am doing the best I can to add items… I developed a fun case of vertigo yesterday and so I am moving a little slow!

A few of you have mentioned that you may not be able to access the email until later tonight. I want to assure you that if there is something you would like, I will do my best to create you a similar style necklace.

Past sales have totally surprised me that I generally don’t have people requesting duplicates until a couple of hours in! Hopefully that will stay true for today’s sale!

Here are a few sneak peek of jewelry that will be available tonight!

I am never going to get all my photos taken so I will probably have to give up on it and take photos of my favorites.

Here are three of my fav’s

My backgrounds are treasures from my Grandparents estate.

Okay, back to making chains! Have a lovely day!! πŸ™‚ Kris

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!

20130220-143102.jpg

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!

20130216-101040.jpg

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!!
