Oh, the little joys of life




So, this picture may look horrible but it's because I just took it on my phone to send here. I am super excited about this necklace. Last night I was able to make something I love- so of course, I'm keeping it :) I was on the phone with my boyfriend for an hour last night stringing these pearls on to make the longest necklace known to man. I find it fabulous.

This is was basically my day during the snow storm. Sat around, made some jewelry, watched some movies; it was amazing. It's always nice to have a day off in the middle of the week for no apparent reason.

The week is almost over and so far it's been a great week. I've had some creativity pass my way which is always nice. My mother also got a bunch of new postcards to promote Jewels For Hope. She gets so excited about these things. I love her for that. She has these huge decals on the sides of her car, she gets new postcards and just jumps up and down about them; its the little things in life that makes us happy.

Sometimes I think my family and myself are just a little odd. I'm not sure how many people do get excited over new postcards? People in this world really should get excited over the little things; life is meant to be happy and everyone has enough hardships going on over their lifetime that a little bit of happiness or excitement over the small stuff will go a long way.

  1. The beads look great and you are so right when you say -

    "People in this world really should get excited over the little things; life is meant to be happy and everyone has enough hardships going on over their lifetime that a little bit of happiness or excitement over the small stuff will go a long way. "

    Well said! :-) It is all these small happy moments that go to make up your life! Have as many of them as you can.

    Wise girl - stay excited about the small things, it is one of the keys to a happy life - it looks like your Mother is a good example for that too!

  3. I agree, the simple things are those which give joy. A snow day, a satisfying meal, indulging your creativity with the jewelry making ... what could be better?!

    The necklace is gorgeous, by the way! Do you end up keeping a lot of your stuff? I'll bet its difficult to part with much of it, huh?

  4. Yea it is difficult to part with a lot of it! I tend to make stuff that I know I would wear; so most of the time it's difficult to sell it, but if I absolutely love something I'll make the first one for myself, then perfect it and make a second one to sell :)
