Papyrus Font

I have always loved the font Papyrus, something about it really appeals to me, I use it a lot when typing journaling blocks for my scrapbooks, etc.  I discovered a vendor on Etsy that sells this font in a metal stamp! I was so excited, I couldn't wait to get it!  Here are a few new pendants where I used this font:

Beach Glass Love

I love beach glass - any kind of beach glass.  Real beach glass, recycled glass, cultured beach glass.  I am currently OBSESSED with it.  I love the soft colors, and of course it reminds me of the beach and summer.  It is supposedly spring here in Michigan, but I am still waiting for the warmer weather.  A few new recycled/beach glass items in my shop:





And I just ordered some more recycled glass pieces, so be on the lookout for more new items!

Ready for Spring!

Well, here it is, March 5, 2014, two weeks from the first day of Spring.  As I look out my window, all I see are snowdrifts.  Every day as I drive to work, I have to try to see over a 5 foot tall snowbank to back out of my driveway.  So, in order to improve my mood (and perhaps yours!) here are some pictures from my stash from a warmer time:

Marching Band Season

Four years ago, I was introduced to the world of High School Marching Band.  My son was a freshman and signed up for marching band as one of his classes.  Silly me, I thought they would just play at Friday night home football games, no big commitment.  WRONG!  Not only did the band march at the football games, they also went to competitions around the state, so every Saturday in October, as well as the occasional Saturday in September and November, was spent driving at least an hour away to watch my son march for a total of 15 minutes.  After the adjustment period that first fall, I became a proud "BAND MOM."  Fundraisers for new uniforms, the marching festival at the high school, competitions, games,  I was there, cheering the band on.  My son graduated from high school this fall, and auditioned for and made the Michigan State University Spartan Marching Band!  At the same time, my daughter is now a freshman in high school, and is also in the marching band.  Needless to say, between MSU football games and high school football games/marching competitions, I am still a busy Band Mom!  I decided to make up some resin pendants for those other band moms out there, as well as the band members themselves, so I came up with these, all available in my Etsy shop:
