Mom's are such special people!

Aside from my own mother, who I look up to so much, I know so many wonderful women who are the best mothers! It's this opportunity that you are presented with to show unconditional love to these little people who look up to you and want to learn from you. I am so proud of who my babies have become, even at their young ages! I was showered with handmade gifts from my little ones today. My 4 year old gave me this poster with his footprint on it and a beautiful poem. Made me cry. :) My 6 year old gave me a book that he wrote about all the things he loves about me! And my very artistic 12 year old daughter made me a paper rose, SCENTED, and a coupon book of "HUGS" to use when needed!
My kids are awesome!!! I'm truly feeling the love today! :)

For my Mother, I have designed a necklace and earring set. Of course, I loved it so much I made myself one as my own mother's day gift to me! 

 I used one of the pink tulips in the backyard as my backdrop for the earrings. Panicked the entire time, as there was a spider nestled INSIDE the tulip leaf on the other side, so I tried not to disrupt him. I hate spiders. And there was also a big juicy fat Bumble Bee flying over my head the entire time. I just said, give me 30 seconds Mr. Bee, and this flower is all yours! LOL! Got my photo's done and ran! I hope my mom loves her gifts.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!!
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, have I been a bad blogger or what? Goodness, I haven't written a post in a while. It's just been crazy around here lately. I guess that New Year's resolution has gone by the wayside. But I have very good intentions of getting my butt in gear! I've just booked a home show in June and I have to hustle now to get myself ready. I have so many pretty beads to design with, and I'm so excited to play with them! Just need to get myself situated and just go! I sat today and made my mother a beautiful necklace and earring set. I'll have a picture to show tomorrow. She's going to just love it! I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day! I am looking forward to hanging with my mom and my sister for the afternoon. Good times! Back tomorrow with pictures of the jewels! I have some rings going to Sandy Hook too! they are really pretty!
Two more to make and they'll be on their way!
