Happy New Year

Happy New Year...we survived many horrific things this year and many happy and exciting things too! May we all be stronger and wiser for the new year and many more after! I received this wonderful greeting this morning and wanted to share it with you.

"Happy New Years everyone. May the new year bring you a renewed meaning to life and what it has to offer you. It is said that life is too short when in essence it is long and fruitful if you take the time to slow down and cherish the opportunities, blessings, miracles, and most importantly the PEOPLE that grace your presence everyday. The monetary items although nice won't keep you happy and engaged in life. Fill your soul with love, integrity, honesty, compassion, intelligence, and trust. Remember there are good things in the world; the bad is just a reminder to focus on what you have LIFE, not what you can buy, steal, or cheat from the next man. Be balanced in all that you do. The Golden Rule is golden for it speaks volumes - 'Treat others as you would have done unto you'. I thank you to all my new friends, co-workers, acquaintances, and passerby's that came into my life this year. For you have allowed me to learn and grow some more. I am grateful for all of those who thought of me and my family even though we haven't spoken in days/months/years. I am grateful for those who talk negatively about me and my family for now I know to distance myself from you because I have no room in my life for your doubt and negativity. I am of Capricorn blood, loyal to the end until burned one too many times. Those who know me, KNOW ME to be true to my word. And with my word, from my heart of hearts I send blessings and love to you all - for without your presence regardless of how size you have touched my life. Wishing you the world's abundance - HAPPY NEW YEARS!" ~Natalie Matsche~

I couldn't have said this any better, only difference, I am a Sagittarius, honest, imaginative and according to my husband...a donkey..meaning stubborn..LOL Its our joke, and believe me I have a better one for him and he knows it too! He is a Taurus...what does that tell yas! Hehehehe...

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving me comments and becoming part of my world. I hope to continue sharing my love of life and my wild imagination.

Love and GOD Bless all of you!

IM FEATURED ON HANDMADE ARTISTS

Well, I want to brag a little.  I think its ok to brag once in awhile without feeling a little vein dont you? I, among many other artists at HandMadeArtists was asked to do a little write up about ourselves and how we have come to being the artist we are today.  So I answered all of the questions and turned in the form and have been waiting to see when my feature would present itself.  Well, I got the email yesterday and finally sat down and read it this evening.  I am so impressed at how Kimberly had interpreted my writing and wrote my life story in this amazing way. She had hit every event in my life so perfectly that I felt she was right there with me.  I am so thankful for her creativity in writing and seeing my life a little more clearly and with a little more flare. With all of this said, I am sure you really want to read the article now...right?  I sure hope so! Not to brag really but to share a little of my life with you.  Please take a few minutes to read it and I would love to have your comment posted either here or at HandMadeArtists site.  Thank you soooo much!

Busy Creating some fun stuff...

My how time has flown.  Its already nearly Thanksgiving and next is Christmas. I have been quite busy making all kinds of new jewelry.  New bullet earrings, lots of copper earrings and a few stitched bracelets and more...  I also made these super cool rings out of some heavy guage wire.  I will show you more of these once I get all the photos taken.  But for now...I thought I would share with you this beautiful bracelet I am working on.  I am going to make a matching ring and another set done in pink.  I still need to finish the fringe on both sides, but I should be done soon. I will be adding a fun huge glass bead on the end which is wrapped with a string of beads...its hard to explain how it hooks but its like a criss cross.  I will show you more on the next picture when I am finished.  Enjoy!!!
