I decided to try a found object collage type thing and see how it looked. I went to the garage and found several old fun, cool pieces. (matter of opinion I know) These were all in bins saved by my ex-spouso for forever; for who knows what, and I thought "Perfect"!! I think it turned out kind of cute in a funky, junky kind of way. I added a few black beads and some have tiny gold stars on them, and then an orange heart and the only thing I could find with a word on it was the label 'cold'. When he got this his first question was ' was that a message to me?'. 'NO, its not, it was the only thing I could find. If I could have found a 'hot' label, I would have put that on there'. Made him feel better I think. Anyway he liked it and I was happy with the way it turned out. I wrapped the whole present with copper wire and just wired on the accessories! I especially like the little springs that are cone shaped. It was an especially fitting decoration as the book that was inside was on how to make stuff out of 'recycled' objects! It would be a fun project for anyone to try.

(BELOW) This is 'Donato' a Kuna Indian who I met in the town square and he is making beaded bracelets. Notice the "loom" which he works from, a wooden board with nails that he ties the bead string to and then beads a beautiful design one tiny bead at a time. The Kuna Indians are known throughout the world for their famous "Mola's". There is one hanging in the background. Mola's are many different colorful layers of fabric cut into beautiful designs and all handstitched.
I discovered this beautiful spot on a drive through the countryside.

Did I say "I LOVE my COFFEE!!!" Oh yes!!! And I mean Yes, Yes, Yes! If I didn't have good coffee in the morning waiting for me (well not waiting for me, I have to make my own) I would never get out of bed!!!
I visited Panama last year and spent time up in the mountains where it is cool, and where they have all the beautiful coffee plantations. Oh my, what a good time!!! Here is a pic of a coffee adventure I had. I was sitting in this wonderful little outdoor patio at a local coffee house in Boquete and I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted a latte or an expresso. So what does one do when that happens and you are in coffee country? You have both!! Yum Yum Yum.

This sterling round pendant has bubbles on the front, and the words BREATHE on the back. A nice reminder to take a minute and stop what your doing and BREATHE! Enjoy what is happening around you, notice the little things, the sounds, the smells, the expressions on peoples faces around you. Just another reminder to be 'in the moment' and to stop rushing about with everything we do. For more information on this piece click here.

I do have to say that this bracelet is very special to me. I received an email one day from Stacey, who wanted two of these bracelets custom made with her words CHOOSE FUN. One for herself and a matching one for her daughter. She explained that it's their favorite saying! Her daughter was going on to bigger things and she wanted her to have it for her new journey!!! Great gift mom!!!! And something I am sure your daughter will treasure forever.
When Stacey received the bracelets she wrote this to me:
"i am speechless!
they are absolutely PERFECT.
it made me teary, because they are very special to me...
it is" our slogan", you know.... : )
i am especially glad that you were a part of it all.
i wish we lived closer to one another...i feel like i know you, sandy.
i will send you photo's when i give them to her.
thank you very very much, friend.
you are a gem." :) Stacey
Wow, I am so happy to have been able to make these for you!! These two women, mom and daughter, are living life out loud!!!! You go girls!!!

I am making a new bracelet design and it will say "Stay Strong" on the top. I will put it on and never take it off. At least that is the way I feel right now. I know I can use an extra reminder to refocus and "stay strong", and that 'this too shall pass'. (I think I might make something that says that too!) If you have any tips or words that have brought you through tougher times, if you like, send them on to me. I would love to hear them.
Thank you my friends, xoxo Sandy

This gorgous Hydrangea plant growns in my yard and I had to take a picture so others could enjoy. I just love it everytime I walk by and see the beautiful flowers. I wish it would last forever. I am thinking of making a painting of it. Wonderful colors! Wouldn't that be gorgous about 3 x 4 foot hanging on the wall??!!! Big~Bold~Beautiful.

words on the back saying "Protect Me"

The bracelets she's wearing are 3 dome
