For Daddy ...

So I always seem to get asked this question ... "do you have anything for dad's or guys?" and the answer now is ....YES! I was playing around with an idea this past weekend. I figured that my fiancee, who is NOT a jewelry wearing kinda guy - would not be too thrilled with it, but I would have an example to add to my personalized collection. However, when I finished the bracelet - he LOVED IT! It absolutely made my day this morning when it was one of the 1st things he put on before we went out to eat and visit family! So here is the "Daddy Bracelet" - it can be personalized just like this with your kids names, OR a favorite quote, song lyric, or your own personal message. It is made from a Stainless Steel blank, and you can choose brown or black leather cord to complete the look. They are for sale on my Etsy page. I loved this pic - Ian was saying how 'cute' (LOL) Daddy's bracelet was but he was also pointing to the YOU - Love that!

So I had to share a little post about my new "Wishes" necklace. Someone recently commented on Facebook that "just looking at this necklace - makes me feel like a kid again" ... that is EXACTLY what I want you to see when you look at this necklace. THAT is an awesome feeling, when you see something that reminds you of your childhood, when there was no worries, we lived each day without a care in the world and we just couldn't wait to grow up. You know sometimes we get caught up in the day to day grind. That we forget to stop and well ... smell the roses. Or in summer time - make wishes. I try to never pass up the opportunity to blow my wishes off of a big fat dandelion in summer. I have had this idea because I saw something similar a few months back. I decided a little too late to begin work on these, as you see - all of the dandelions are gone. OR SO I THOUGHT! ... Last weekend we were out getting our family pics made ... when all of the sudden I glace over and Eli has a big, fat, dandy - blowing all the wishes into the air. I watched in slow motion and yelled out a big ... "NOOOOOOOOoooo" Eli was puzzled. I asked him WHERE he found a dandelion this late in the year , and he just said that he looked down and it was there! How lucky would I be to find dandelions in late Oct.? Well at that point, the boys and I were on a mission to find more, we came away with 6 - I was over the moon happy! So I came home, got to work - and here you have it ... the Wishes necklace. These are $22 each and you can order by emailing me at - I hope you love it - cause I sure do!
