1. The dirty dishes can wait-especially when I'm feeling creative! 2. When you believe in yourself, others will believe in you. 3. Smiles can change the outcome of an otherwise not so cheery day. 4. Surround yourself with positive people. 5. Live life with no regrets. 6. Hold on to a great friend-they are treasures and hard to find. 6. Tell your children and family you love them everyday. 7. Do something that scares you and you'll discover it isn't so scary after all. 8.laugh instead of cry. 9. Love yourself. 10. Be Happy!

Getting the Christmas tree this year seemed impossible due to all the busy schdules and lack of four wheel drive in our truck. However a very good friend of mine just happened to have an extra tree cut down in her garage.... I know, who does this? So my dear parents stopped by with said tree in the back of their truck and saved Christmas! Here are a few photos of that visit and of the Schmidt Christmas tree all decorated up.....before the cat knocked it down. So glad I had some photos taken! (big sigh!)

As a girl with 2 brothers ( whom I love very much...) I can appreciate and often wonder how the closeness strong bond between sisters must be like. When a good friend of mine asked me to create a special something for her sister, I knew just what to do. First thing was to gather the old black and white photos of the two of them....and aren't they gorgeous! I think the photos speak volumes of their relationship even at this tender age, and so my work was very easy. The collage piece is double sided so it may hang in a window, doorway or any other little space that needs some colour and sparkle. These pieces of art have been one of my favourites to create as it is a very personal tribute and something that can be passed down for generations. In the new year I will be adding gifts like this to my Etsy shop and my web-site ( under construction! ) To all that have supported my little business this holiday season, I am extremely grateful and proud to have given a little piece of my art to you all .

I love wearing more than one piece together and often mix and match my necklaces for an unexpected look. I am so glad I do this because it has caught on and my sales are doubling because of it! Thanks everyone! Michelle....these 2 are for you, I hope you love them as much as I do.

I've been super busy this holiday season with my jewelery and it's not only selling locally , but across the country which is very exciting! Here are some photos of the last couple I'm shipping out and one for a special lady at work!
