Creating something...

I've made jewelry for as long as I can remember. I started young with those big plastic beads. In fact, I still have a couple of necklaces. As I got older (and had more money), I started working with semi-precious stones. They aren't cheap to make, but I love how pretty they are. The New Age part of me shines through as well, because you can use stones for healing as well. (Whether the stones actually work, or it's more mind over matter, I'm not quite sure. ;))

For awhile now I've been saying I should open an Etsy shop and sell some things.  Two things are holding me back, (one) I have little time to make pieces and (two) what if no one buys anything?

Whether or not I actually start a shop, I will still make jewelry because nothing makes me happier than wearing something that I created!

Chakra earrings
Red jasper, carnelian, citrine, malachite,
turquoise, lapis lazuli and amethyst

Chakra bracelet with carnelian,
as well as amethyst, lapis lazuli, turquoise, aventurine, citrine, and garnet chips

Carnelian's properties include: Protects the user from all negative emotions. Wonderful protective energy over rage, resentment, bad tempers, and anger in self and from others.   It helps one banish sorrow or depression.  Grounds energy and attention into the present. Healing for kidneys, which is one of the reasons I wear it.

Chakra jewelry helps to realign and balance the energy fields of each specific chakra, aligning and harmonizing mind, body and soul. Each color represents a specific part of the body and soul.

Rose quartz necklace

Rose quartz brings peacefulness and harmony to the wearer.
It helps balance emotions and heal emotional wounds and traumas,
even grief, bringing peace and calm.

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
