A Gift For Myself (Unveiling)


If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time, not tomorrow or next year...
Today should always be our most wonderful day.

Hi, my friends. I am so excited to share with you this special one of a kind necklace that has been made for me to signify my one year blogging journey. I had to unveil it and share because it is significant to me and I knew you would so appreciate seeing it! 

I am not really a "jewelry" person but I had made up my mind that I would get something special to wear to acknowledge my accomplishment & commitment, just for myself. Nothing extravagant, yet I love so many of the creations I have seen as I have met photographers, painters, and various mixed media artists this year. I knew that one would be able to help me by creating a reflective token with my blog as the inspiration. 

Sure enough, Becky Strahle of Farmgirl Paints has made this beautiful necklace for me.

I sent my specifications, which were pretty sketchy -not literally!.
I trusted her to create something unique
using what she felt reflected the blog when she visited. 
Orange is my fave color and she added the little bead as a special touch.
The white beads remind me of the purity of Christ.

Becky has so many exquisite items, and I am grateful she was so willing, able and up to the task of working with me to design this reasonably priced, beautiful token.

My Birthday is not until next month, but I consider it an early gift to myself. 
From my husband.
Hee, Hee.
Ahem.

Stop by and see this creation as well as her many other wonderful 
offerings at her Etsy Shop!

Perhaps, you might request she create something for 
your next Milestone-Celebration!



The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, 
which is exactly what it is: a miracle and unrepeatable.
~Storm Jameson

While we are living in the present,
 we must celebrate life every day, 
knowing that we are becoming history with every work, 
every action, every deed.
