Randi's Bracelet

Recently, I (finally) completed a custom order for a very dear friend of mine... Randi.

A few years ago, she went to Israel on a tour of the Holy Land and had a wonderful time. She was able to see for herself many sites that we discuss in our weekly Bible study classes. The trip was very inspirational to her and created a deep fondness for the land and its people.

Like most folks who take life changing trips... she brought something back to remind her of that faith adventure. And I am so glad she did!!

Her little reminders (a handful of coins from the national currency and ones for the planned temple) turned into a great opportunity for me to create something different for a change.

The coins were drilled, cleaned & polished and arranged with beads. Then colorful crystals were added and voila... a wonderful charm bracelet!!

Now she can wear a great reminder of her trip that has sparked numerous conversations. And the added bonus... you can now hear Randi "jingling" from about a mile away!!

Mama's New Gig

Hello everyone!! In this post I want to tell you a little bit about my latest adventure as an artist.

When my youngest started full day kindergarten this fall (yippie!!), I was left looking for ways to add a little more purpose to my life. So one day I contacted a friend who was opening an art gallery and asked if she needed any help.

To make a long story short... I will be an art consultant, class instructor and featured artist!!

Last night was the grand opening of Creative Expressions Art Gallery in Mequon, Wisconsin. It was a big success and I'm so glad to be part of such a wonderful team!!

Mama's Got an iPhone


I know it's been a loooooong time since my last post. A lot has happened but nothing that exciting that the whole world needed to know about.

Until now.

Now, I have my very own iPhone and to me that's noteworthy. After listening to me beg for months, my hubby got it for me for our 12th anniversary.

This device is so cool and I feel like I have the world at my fingers... any place, anytime!!

Now, I just have to figure out how to post pictures to my blog with this thing.
