One Lucky G-ma!

Jaden the Rock Star!

ring ring….as I answered the phone this afternoon at work. “Grandma, can I come over tonight!”

I rushed home tonight to greet our little sweetie! Oh, not here yet….good, I had a little time to let Savannah out and get his bagels and cream cheese away….just in case! Grandma always has to be prepared!

Gems and Stones for Grandmas Jewelry

So, I just started up my computer to get some labels and things printed to happily ship my Etsy orders, when I hear Jaden upstairs! “GRANDMA! running down the stairs! “I have something for you!” So, he comes running in with a Ziploc bag full of  “Gems” for me to make jewelry! (Talk about my heart just melting!) So I open the bag and dump the rocks out on my desk. The super smooth white ones, I found….Kyle, my friend found this one….little Jayden found this one! “I like all the white ones” , I said. “I found all those white ones Grandma!”

These are the things that make parenting the best thing ever! How cool is it when a little one not only thinks of you all on his own, but then has him and his friends go digging for “Gems & Stones” for his grandma to make jewelry! I would have loved to have been there to witness this! Imagine all these little guys running in the house to Mom! Muddy hands open, “Mom, we were digging for “Gems and Stones for Grandma for her to make jewelry! Real gems! She can sell ’em on Etsy! They’re so HUGE, she’ll probably be rich!”

Jaden's Shop

Did I ever tell you how much Jaden loves Etsy, yep, he does! Every year he grows up so much! But, I remember when he would sit on my lap and we would browse Etsy! It inspired Jaden so much! In fact, I had an Open House at our home for my jewelry. Jaden was SO excited. So, I get a phone call the night before my Open House….”Grandma….could I have my own table to sell the ornaments that I am making?”  Well I was so excited, “Yes, of course you could!” He was such a little salesmen! He did great! I think every person that came would have bought one…but he sold out before everyone could get one of their own!

Family Removed from Santa’s Watch List

I must say, after the holidays when I am off of work, Christmas is over and we are all just relaxing, I become quite reflective! To me, just a regular, ordinary beginning of the year mood. I look back at the year, count my blessings, think about the future,  and ponder about areas where I can approve my life for myself and others around me.

Amongst all this thinking, I thought of my blog! After all, why not fill my mind with just one more thought of things I’m not doing! (ha, you can see my daily meditation is not is place, as my mind is racing continually with thoughts!) But, soon I will be back into the daily groove, but for now… this is fun stuff, and little bits of stuff that is just fun to share!

So, I think this year my children and grandchildren, we’re off Santa’s watch list! (Oh, let me clarify! Our Little Jaden, he was never on the watch list, always a good boy! Probably very high on Santas Good Boy list!) Yep, everyone was really sweet this year! First our son, painted our whole family room! Quite an undertaking, and he did a great job! Kudos to Michael! The family room is warm and extra friendly now with shades of ivory, warm tan and a lovely deep roasted coffee color. As much as I feel that my judgement for color and decorating ideas are really comfy cozy and inviting,  the roasted coffee color suggestion was totally his. As much as I was uncertain, I gave the kid a break and he was right! So, what was the moment I gave in….Ma, if you don’t like it, I’ll redo it! Sold! How could I resist! And now, I can’t wait for him to do the rest of the house! woohoo!

After the painting was done, and everything looked so pretty, even Mike got into the creative spirit! He made these great coasters out of exotic zebra wood that houses lighting to shine under our beautiful bottles on our shelves! I have to get some good photos to post!
