create a handmade life.

September 23rd | blog friends, events, jewelry



our new create a handmade life necklace was created

just for ‘the creative connection event’ in minneapolis.

isn’t it sweet?




there was one at each place setting for the keynote dinner with amy butler.

that’s jessica (allora handmade) showing the cute little box and bow.

so exciting!

and jo packham and nancy soriano invited me up front and introduced me,

which was crazy cool/my worst nightmare.

i have to really pump myself up to get in front of large groups.

but what an honor!!




sweet friends, loralee, maggie (gussy) and lindsey.

maggie is wearing the new necklace in the pic above!

and we are offering them on the website for two weeks.

so head over and grab a new ‘create a handmade life’ necklace!!

(they’re only $32!)

    Beautiful necklace.. but they all are beautiful and so meaningful… This week I have created three cookie trays, two with autumn leaves, acorns, apples & pumpkins and one had red and green apples with one caterpillar!! I love fall, if the temperature in south Alabama would just drop below 97 it would be AWESOME!

    Hi oh love all of those photos! You all look so happy! I’ve created 2 more large decorative magnets that I am so happy with – they just make me happy to look at them. Lovely colours and they involve nature, which is very dear to my heart! Check out my blog lisa, I posted photographs around three days ago. Smiles..
