The "Fierce" necklace is of course available in my shop
The "Fierce" necklace is a sterling silver 16mm hand stamped disc with the word "Fierce" hand stamped. The charm hangs on a 18 inch sterling silver chain and includes two swarovski crystals as shown or you pick your birthstone months.Artist note: The letters on this disc have been hand stamped one at a time. I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and are not meant to this is part of the charm that makes your piece one of a kind. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same. The disc has been brushed and the letters have been oxidized/antiqued, to make them stand out it will appear to be aged or slightly tarnished but has been given a good polish. All materials used are of the highest quality and each piece has been made w/ loving care.

There is no gift greater than the gift of life. Anyone that knows me knows that I am inspired by many different things. I designed this necklace a while back and just never posted it. We had great difficulties in having Will, and I wanted this to be a reminder of what a gift he truly is. Even on the days of tantrums and bad moods he is a gift from God!
Tell me how you honor the gift of life?
The "Life is a gift" necklace is a 16mm sterling silver disc with the words "Life is a gift" hand stamped. The charm includes a blue topaz that has been hand wire wrapped. The charms hang on a 16 or 18 inch sterling silver snake chain.
Artist Note: The letters on this necklace have been hand stamped one at a time, I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and this should not be considered a flaw but part of the charm. The letters have been blackened/antiqued, to make the letters stand out. This piece has been slightly brushed and has an aged appearance and will appear slightly tarnished but rest assured it has been given a good polish and all by hand.

- The challenge: Models got to pick the fabrics and tell their designers what they wanted their cocktail dress to look like. Some didn't do a very good job!
- The fabrics must be Green or organic. Everyone seemed to pick brown silk.
- The winner of this contest will have their dress sold on Bluefly.com
- Natalie Portman was a guest judge, she is just too adorable. Natalie really liked Suede's dress and said she would wear it.
- Heidi said she would wear Suede's dress if she was 10 years younger.

- Pilates- I love Pilates, it makes you feel good all over. You focus on your breathing and clear your mind. I have a hard time quieting my mind and find Pilates helps me get closer to a clear mind.
- Bubble Baths- A nice lavender bubble bath and a nice glass of wine would be oh so nice.
- Get a pedicure- Pedicures to me are so relaxing, it is one full hour of pure pampering.
What are some things you would like to do for yourself that you have been putting off?
The Mind, Body, Soul necklace is available here

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. Will couldn't decide if he wanted to be in or out all weekend. We would get all slathered up w/ sunscreen and go outside and then he would say he wanted to go in. It was still a fun weekend with unbelievable weather. Will tried so hard to stay awake for the fire works but was fast asleep by the finale. How did you celebrate the holiday?

Relax, Reflect and enjoy your holiday weekend. What do you do to unwind? I like to get one of my favorite summer drinks lemonade/ice tea, a great magazine and just soak up some sun at the lake. (Wait this was before I had a kiddo now I am lucky to relax for 2 minutes!)

Freedom of Speech. We may not always like what others have to say but it is our right to say how we feel and that is something some countries simply do not allow. If everyone said and thought the same things the world would be a very boring place to exist in.
The right to vote for all Americans. It is crazy that not that long ago women didn't have the right to vote.
The right to practice your religion of choice. As Americans it is our right to worship whomever and whatever religion we chose.
So as you celebrate the 4th of July stop and think about what freedoms you are grateful for.
What does the word Freedom mean to you?

The featured organization for July is http://www.alexslemonade.org/. Several years ago I saw a special on television on what little Alex did at a very young age. At a young age Alex was diagnosed with cancer and she wanted to do something to raise money for research on childhood cancer. Alex decided with the help of her old brother to hold a lemonade stand and raise money to help her doctors find a cure. The next four years while battling her cancer she continued to hold annual lemonade stands to raise more money. At the age of 8 Alex died peacefully and at that time the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation had raised over 1 million dollars for cancer research. In Alex's honor her family and friends have continued to raise over 19 million dollars for further cancer research.
You can do your part in a few different ways. Visit their site at http://alexslemonade.org/You can make a donation directly, hold your very own lemonade stand (this is a great way to get the kiddos involved) or purchase my "Turn Lemons into Lemonade" hand stamped necklace. A portion of proceed sfor each "Turn Lemons into Lemonade" necklace will be donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand foundation in honor of Alex.
The necklace can be purchase at http://www.klacustomcreatins.etsy.com/
