Thank you Shannon!!!

Yay!  I recently won a giveaway hosted by the talented Shannon Levart .  She'd posted a pic of this darling piece, and my name was drawn for the prize!   The package arrived yesterday, but when I arrived home from work, my sweet hubby was working very hard to be ready for our DD and her fiance.  They flew in from Madrid last night, and with all of the talking & laughing & settling them in, I didn't get a chance to even open the package.   Early this morning, I opened it before they woke up.  Isn't it lovely?  I can't look at it without smiling. :-)

Here's the box.  I LOVE Shannon's card.   Doesn't she make the most wonderful pieces? And her patinas are mesmerizing.  Check out her work at her Etsy shop .  You'll see eye candy~
Thank you so very much Shannon!  Your generosity is matched by your wonderful work!

More Ice Resin~~Serenity, Joy Resilience Pendant

New resin piece.  It's so fun to create  a piece with positive thoughts encased in clear hardness.  To be able to hold and reread encouraging words throughout the day.  Blessings!

"Dream & Grow" my friend.  Summer dreams can encourage love, encourage peace. 

Have a lovely Thursday!  Savor the present moment~~find the bits of goodness.

Goof Off Pendant

Lovely warm Saturday in Vallejo.  I'm "bach-ing" it , with my sweet DH down in Bakersfield.  Working on jewelry, goofing off.  Made this smoky quartz, brass, turquoise, copper & silk pendant for myself.  Maybe I should call it my "Goofing Off" Pendant~~ :-)
Must sweep up dog fur today, clear clutter, do laundry AND work on resin pendants.  And MUST smile at myself in the mirror, dance a bit while drinking my water, talk to the kitties and thank God for my blessed life.  I'm so grateful that I live in the United States of America.  I'm so grateful that my grandparents immigrated from Czechoslovakia and Poland so many years ago, bravely starting new lives.  Blessed indeed.

May your weekend be truly good.  Filled with all that enters your heart with quiet joy~~
