Shop Update

So little by little I've been working on new designs.
I'm really excited to share them with you.
I still have to photograph some and add them all to the shop.
I have shared some on my Facebook fan page
but wanted to share on my blog as well.

So here is a sneak peek at some of the new designs.
I have been wanting to add these for sometime now
especially since both my boys have started guitar lessons.

These are great gifts for the musician in your life. 
These can be turned into a necklace, 
keychain or you can use them to play.
You can even add a leather keychain case for your pick.
I actually listed a few to test it out to see if 
there was any interest and within two days we sold out! 

The guitar picks will be offered in nickel silver, copper or aluminum.

This is a memorial piece that I made awhile back. It features a hand wrapped freshwater pearl that dangles in the center of the cut out heart washer with an angel wing charm.  I gave it a rustic finish by slightly texturizing it and a brushed satin finish.

You can find these in my shop.  I have lots of new things coming and I'll be trying to get prepared for Mother's day!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Easter 2013

 Here is a look at our Easter weekend.

We started off with egg dyeing.  This year Daniel was more interested in helping out.

Many people dye hard boiled eggs, but we dye eggs that have an empty shell then fill them up with confetti. 

Why you ask? You'll see.

We also made our resurrection rolls again this year. 

I really enjoy making these with the kids because it helps refocus on what the true meaning of Easter actually is. We read the story and talk about Jesus while we make them. 

We started this tradition a few years ago and I believe every year they turn out better and better. 

They are not perfect but they tasted very good!

After church we headed to my parent's house to celebrate with them. we had lots of yummy food and visited with cousins.  
Then it was time for the egg hunt to begin! 
Daniel was really interested in the Easter egg hunt as long as Dad was helping him. 

The older kids were off looking for the eggs. 

See, here is what happens after the egg hunt is over with the confetti filled eggs. They are used to be cracked on each other's heads. Why? You ask. Well I'm not sure, it is just something we've always done since I was a child. I know my husband had never heard of this. His family only hunts for plastic eggs filled with candy. We do both! It took sometime for my hubby to get used to it.

The kids really enjoy chasing each other around and cracking them on each others heads. 

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!
