Tried to post on Junkmarket several bracelet holders!!!!

Quickly took pictures of this as I tend to make things, sell them and then, 


 No picture to prove I created something wonderful!!!  

This is a bracelet holder....wooden 
candle stick holder,
 funky metal piece and an old button 
and very strong adhesive!!!  
I am showing what it would look like
 if the top of my dresser
 was it's home.

What do you think?

Okay, so here it is by itself, unadorned.  

And here is a "little friend" that I am keeping.  Just hold a few bracelets.  A glass candle piece with
an old home interiors type sconce piece glued to it....another funky looking creation!!!

Appreciating Family.....seeking God's Comfort....

I think the world is just reeling from all the tragedy in Connecticut....

....time to appreciate and love on your family....

Here is my dad's folks....not sure of the year, but they are a part of the reason I am here....

....when you are young, you think family will be around forever....and would never think one would have to deal with events like Fridays'....

....and this is me, quite a long time ago.... front of my mom's folks barn 
in Avon, South Dakota.... time flies!!!  

Have a blessed week despite the sadness 


God is still in control!!!

"UP" rings and "FUN" rings.....

'Tis the Season!!!  

I appreciate all the encouraging words we share with one another, especially during the Holiday Seasons.  I believe that we all want to make a difference in this world, however large and/or however small.  One of the items I created for the fall craft show were these "UP" rings.  I have made the bauble rings you also see in the pictures for a long time, but God gave me an idea when I saw some brown marbled paper that was over a hundred years old....  I had purchased some of these brass blank rings and glass cabochons awhile ago.  Always looking for ways in my creating to be an encouragement to others and thus these rings were born!  I only have 10 left.  Purchased some more ring blanks and cabochons to make more, but it will not probably get done until after the first of the year....too much to do.  I put the remaining inventory in my etsy shop.  I hope that all of you stopping by know that...
 "You're beautiful in His eyes"!!!

Celebrating Dean Morrissey!!!

As I stay busy creating, I just have to share someone else's talent that I appreciate very much and that is the artist and writer, Dean Morrissey.  If you do a search on his illustrations, so much will come up and you will find yourself lost in another world!!!  I collect a lot of children's books just for the illustrations....I am sure others do, too.  

We are having a very mild December so far....loving it!!!  On the way to church, we travel 10 miles south and out in the country we saw thousands of birds landing on a lake!  As the sun hit the birds, they turned white and just dropped like snowflakes onto the water!  It was a beautiful sight and an amazing reminder of just how amazing God is!  How can we deny that He is the Creator....that we have a Creator that is behind all this glorious creation!!!
