A Dog’s Life

So, it’s been so long since I’ve written on my blog! I’ve been a less than my cheerful self lately. Life has it highs and it’s lows and sometimes somewhere in between. And, being the emotional creature that I am,  I tend to sort things out on my own. I love music, and lately it’s been girl power songs, so take a minute to enjoy this song by Kelly Clarkson.02 Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)

You know, I am a pretty lucky lady! I have a really big fan club! I have my sister Suze,  my friend Allison, and of course Mike…they love EVERY piece of jewelry I make. They are so inspiring! But sometimes…it just happens… I get in a lull and not so inspired.

Karen's Lanyard

So, out of the blue I get a note from a lady about wanting a lanyard! Karen was browsing on my LindaGeezToo etsy page, and found me. Well, I never made one, but it’s something that I have thought about doing!  But, if you’re like me it’s on the long list of things I want to make! (let me rephrase that, Mike thought that was something I should make! Heck I didn’t even know what a lanyard was….but he was thinking more for fly fishing! He likes giving me jewelry tips! He’s such a fashionista! :o) LOL, really?)

So, back to the story…SO, all it took was one little conversation for me to recognize that this lady sounded like a kind soul, someone I would LOVE to make something for! She talked about wanting crystal and moonstone and maybe pink, and little dog charms and chakra inspired! So, this was the beginning of a very nice friendship forming, I could just tell! Well, after several emails, I felt a real desire to make something this kind soul would LOVE! And, I did! But the best part about it, she LOVED it too! But, let’s backup a bit…even before I started her lovely lanyard, Karen and I spoke often, the wonders of today’s electronic world! I just love that about technology today. I have met wonderful people that I never would have had the opportunity to meet had I not had an Etsy account and email! To my surprise though, not only did we have a love for our doggies, but a lot of similarities! We talked about her volunteering her time to help homeless animals, and animal therapy, and gardening and making soap and love of herbs,  and simply just wonderful conversation!  I have so many wonderful people that I have met, such lovely experiences. One kind soul reaching to another, just as it should be! Like I say often, “All You Need is Love” Listen to one of my favorite songs by the Beatles 1-18 All You Need Is Love

So, her lanyard is now done! I LOVE it, but I’m happy to say Karen LOVES it at well! Lots of love went into making this and I’m sending her good energy and her beautiful lanyard tomorrow! But, there is another really sweet thing about Karen that I must share! Even before I finished her lanyard, Karen was so sweet and sent me a package filled with some of her favorite flower seeds and herbs! What a sweetheart! That was the beginning of my thoughts shifting from blues to inspiration. Thank you Karen!

So, I must say, I DO believe in angels, just when I was thinking that life is a bummer, somehow my guardian angel pulls through again! Count your blessings, be grateful, don’t waste your precious life being blue, and believe! Enjoy this beautiful song by Sarah McLachlan 14 Angel

Karen's Lanyard

So, thank you my friends for inspiring me! And now, my mind is spinning with new styles and new ideas and my inspiration is once again flowing! So, more leather & crystal is ordered, great gemstones chosen, and a wonderful friend is on the waiting list for her very special long and beautiful leather, crystal and gemstone necklace!

So, take a moment to browse my Etsy shops! I’m sure you will enjoy it, and feel free to send me a conv0…that’s Etsy talk for send an email to me!

Love and Peace…Linda

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!
