Silver Glass

This is my new favorite bracelet. I'm definitely a fan of the silver look over the gold. I am planning on making a matching/similar one for my daughter, but needed to get a new front post. So that will have to wait.

Ugly but loved

My son sucks his thumb with a blanket. My daughter has started to suck her thumb, so we wanted to get her a blanket she loved. I wasn't having any success, until I realized she liked stringy things and silky things. So I bought some tricot and sewed ribbons coming off of it. I made two she loves them when she is tired, especially the ribbon. Yes I know its ugly, and it will only get uglier in time.

The beading craze continued, even after my mother was gone I made this. The beads were leftover from baby bracelets. My husband thought the necklace looked like a fishing lure.

Blue Necklaces

I told you it was a beading craze. This is not the end.

Beading Gifts

During my mom's and I beading craze. We were beading at my grandmother's house, and my grandma asked why we never made her anything. So I made her this. She said she loved it and wore it around the house the other night, because she never goes anywhere but church.

Then in a previous beading craze at my grandmother's house, one of eleven sister in laws happened to also be at my grandmother's house and expressed a desire to own a bracelet beaded watch. For her birthday my mom and I made one. You might notice an overlap in beads.
The back of the watch-- the toggle, a phrase I think my sister in law will think is cute.

I recently made this necklace. I picked out joy, to remind me to have joy in motherhood, to not get bogged down with laundry, dishes and noise, but to enjoy my fat fingered children. (I love fat sausage fingered children.) Every time I look in the mirror I see joy, and it helps the day go on.
Just to prove I'm embracing motherhood. Here is the firetruck with an arrow picture.
I really do love my children, I just need a reminder of how fun they are sometimes. I don't want them to grow up and me realize one day I let it all slip away.

I found the lost pacifier clip! Like my husband said my son put it in a completely logical place. Inside a jewelry box I never look in. My daughter hasn't used pacifiers in what seems like an eternity for a baby life. But here it is.
A jewelry box made for a ring, a jewelry box I didn't even know this could fit in.
Here is my matching bracelet, I used the left over silver beads. Once again I love wearing this bracelet!
