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!!!

Who feels like they could use a little extra strength right now?

I know I do. Sometimes the way things are going, different events in your own life, or in the world in general just seem overpowering. I just went through a divorce. Although it was fairly amiable, it is still a miserable thing. I find it hard sometimes to get out of bed and do what I need to do to get through the day. Can anyone out there relate? And watching the news on tv, I just want to bury my head under the covers. Sometimes I just make myself not turn the darn thing on.

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

Isn't this Beautiful !!!


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.
