A very sweet friend of mine from Nova Scotia lost her husband last year to Cancer. Her children and herself moved from Japan back to Cape Breton after his death to where she grew up. I felt very privledged when she asked me to design 8 Colours Of Cancer Bracelets as gifts to all those wonderful people who had helped her through this difficult time. Although I won't post pictures of the bracelets now, as they are Christmas gifts, I will show you all the pretty little packages that will greet her when she opens them. God bless you and your family this holiday Setsu, you are such a remarkable woman and beautiful friend.

Well I'm still working on my vision board and I'm slowly getting it finished , a little at a time. As with every project I just can't keep it simple and slap it together spontaneously...I've put a lot of thought into this and it is a work in progress. I've used the feng shui method which puts everything into a particular spot on the board ie: wealth- top left corner, friends, travel- bottom right etc. I am enjoying this very much and I am learning more about myself everyday and setting goals to accomplish things that I have put off for years. Thanks Margot for giving me the boost I needed to get on with this project....and welcome home I missed you!! Oh and one more thing.... her trip to Costa Rica was on her vision board!!

The general talk around town is not about snow plowing , winter tires or the latest hot snow machine....it's about how beautiful November has been! It's hard to believe that there is no snow out there yet and that tonight it's actually raining out! Here are a few shots I took of our yard while taking a "creative break" with my loyal doggie Storm. I'm loving this month!

Been very busy working in my studio the past few weeks creating some orders for customers and for the 2 stores in town that carry my pieces. These are the ones I've dropped off at Ella Lynns today and I am on my way back out to stoke the stove and make some more. These necklaces have glass beads, homemade clay beads, pewter pendants, and some leather pieces I hand cut myself! I love the leather pieces, it really gives the piece an earthy time worn look.
The next round of orders are very special and I can't wait to share them with you! Stayed tuned and let me know what you think.

Well it is already starting! Customers getting in line to place their custom orders for Christmas for all those good little girls on their lists! I love doing them and have been super busy creating one of a kind necklaces, bracelets and other art projects . The one necklace was a gift to my mom as she really loves the chunky charm necklaces I've been creating and the others are on their way to Ella Lynns this weekend (that is If the girls at work don't grab them first..... ) They never seem to make it to the store! This is the third attempt so Allie, Jill.....I am trying!
