Altered Art Jewelry and Giveaway Winner!

I love the moment when I pick the name of the giveaway winner! Sometimes I get overwhelmed with greatfulness and I feel so blessed to be able to create here in my studio. I feel like I have a little gift shop in here and it truly does bring me joy to send a little treasure on its way to someone just for the fun of it! So congrats to Lynn Stevens as you are the winner of the Art Blessing giveaway this month! Please take a moment to visit Lynn's blog, "Trash to Treasure Art" for some delicious, artsy eye candy and an incredible giveaway from such a sweet spirit! Thank you yet again to each of you for your generous comments that always inspire my heart!

I have been working on several new jewelry pieces this week and a few other goodies. Here is a preview of some of these treasures! I will let you know soon where they will be listed! Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in any of them in the meantime!

I had fun wearing one of these new Inspirational Glass pendants this weekend. It occured to me I often create all kinds of things but rarely choose and keep something meaningful for myself and wear what I have created. I found myself thinking and wondering about the meaning of this as I tenderly touched the piece I chose to wear, "Acceptence Breathes Peace". I wonder if we fully take in and accept our gifts and blessings and what can get in the way of the receiving. What is gently pressing in on you affirm and encourage you embrace or feel a hesitancy to receive it? It is good to take time to explore these kind of deeper and quieter thoughts.
You can find these glass pendants on my website!

I have been working on creating small gifts of hope and encouragement for the holidays and also added these large glass stone magnet sets to my website!

You can find these trio sets here!

Creative Blessings to each of you this week!

Thanks so much for letting me share these pieces. I hope that this day finds you in a good place, breathing in the present moment and willing to reach out to those you risk being cared for...and to offer care to someone who crosses your path. Each of us has much to give and to release of ourselves as the holidays approach and so many will be in need of the simple and often free gifts we possess.

Every fall I think of this song and thought you might be blessed by it too. It always moves me deeply.....
