Baby, it's cold outside! Finally the ice is melting and things are warming up. The good part of it all is the ground got some good moisture.
We slid around on the ice a few times. Mike really enjoys that! But we rented some movies, made some soups and enjoyed the nights inside, all warm and snuggly!
Some of the good movies we watched were
Fireproof, Saving God, Lobster Tale, and Waterhorse.

New Jewelry

The Blue John 3:16 bracelet is one of my favorites. I have made it in several colors and different beads. I think I will use pearls and Swarovski crystals on the next one.

I really like Bronzite. This bracelet design has sold twice and I have a third ready to be sold.

This set is with Keishi pearls and Green Adventurine. I have matching earrings as well. This is a new set in my Etsy shop.

Let me know what you think!

Wow, warmer weather at last! I know we need the cold, but....
I am ready to start creating again. I am going to take apart some of the old pieces from last year and remake them. I am just waiting on a few things to come in first.
Jeni is doing good this week. Keeping little Nico in his "warming oven". He isn't due for a while yet and she is on meds and bedrest to slow the contractions.
Mr. Collin was over to spend the night again Thursday. He sure is fun. He has an infectious giggle. We had Izzie Thursday morning. When she went home with mommy and daddy, she took her first 4 steps! Now, why couldn't she do that at Gramma's?

Grandbabies! Jewelry!!

There is nothing in this world better than loving on my grandbabies! Jeni went to the hospital this week in pre-term labor. That meant Gramma and Papa got to keep Collin overnight. He has such an infectious giggle! Doc was able to give Jeni meds to stop the contractions and sent her home. Little Nico needs to stay in the "oven" a bit longer.
Last week we had Collin on Thursday, then Jesse, Kaylee and Izzie on Friday. Course Izzy didn't stay all night.
Jesse and Kaylee enjoy making their own jewelry at Gramma's. I keep a box of beads and stretch cord just for them. I think this summer we will work with the "real" stuff. They sure enjoy it.
I have some chalcedony and pearls coming. I can't wait to get them. I am trying to decide on doing a Valentine's show. It would be at the business mall again. If the pearls come in time, then I think I can do it.
I just love working with the pearls. All I need is a few hundred dollars to buy lots of pearls and accessory beads. Oh yea, I have a sterling silver order coming too. Although I don't think it will be in time.
