I have been making jewelry for about 5 years now and it's one of those hobbies were there is no end because jewelry is constantly changing and evolving. New techniques pop up and it gives new life. I have been making these 'friendship' stacking bracelets all week and it will probably be another week until I stop because they are addicting to make and wear.
I sell my jewelry but I also find that I give my jewelry away more often. I just like making jewelry. If I sell some great! If I don't, I will still make stuff lol. You can imagine what my jewelry stash looks like! I have a Facebook page and also a page on Instagram! Look me up and have a look! I also do a lot of specialty orders so if you want something and can't find it, I can, in most cases make it.
It's been a while since I've been on here. Life has been going on and that takes precedence over anything else. But I recently remembered that I had a blog!! So I thought I would hop on over here and do a yearly update lol.
We had a rough start to this year. We started the year out with yet another and final miscarriage. We spent that one in the ER for 9 hours because of major major hemorrhaging. We were told and also felt that we should call it quits with trying to have a 5th. So we are enjoying our babies that we have!! We truly are blessed to have them!
We moved in May after 4 years in our previous place. My kids recently started school again. My oldest is in 5th now, second oldest is in 3rd and our 3rd oldest is in Kindergarten. My last baby is still at home with me and I am soaking in the time I have with him before he goes to school.
Life is much the same. And I'm happy with that! We are in Halloween mode now and we are having fun with that! We have big plans for this month since it comes but once a year! Costumes have been purchased, house is decked out, pumpkin patch is scheduled, fall festivals, Halloween parties. I may be more excited than my kids!
I don't know who took this photo but my heart has been longing for fall for quite a while. Since leaving our home state and moving to San Diego, we have not enjoyed a fall here without having to take a long drive. Now I love that I can grow a garden 365 days a year but I miss raking leaves, and coats, and actually needing to drink a cup of hot apple cider or hot chocolate to keep ones innards warm. Driving through the mountains and having a such a spectacular autumn view, jumping in the leaves. Just the FEELING of autumn- yes to me there is a FEELING of autumn. You can feel it in your bones. The change of season. If I keep writing about this any longer I may start crying.
This week was one I do not care to repeat but unfortunately this week has already happened 5 other times in my life. We lost another baby this week. Yes, I know, we already have 4. But you cannot put a number on a child and I certainly don't. I worked my butt off for each one of my kids and I am happy with the kids I have. But Brian and I have felt that there is someone missing. Wether we are blessed with that someone or not, I am still so grateful for what I have! But I will always be dreaming of my babies until I can meet them again.
For the past couple of months I've had some weird goings on with my body. My energy is zilch. I've even talked to a Doctor about it but HE just claims that it's part of the woman package. I told him he was crazier than me! Thinking of going to an OB for this one. Family Doctors psh! What do they know lol!
Anywho, as you can imagine, with 4 kids and no energy you would think my house would be a total nightmare. Not so! Not so! This is one of the many many reasons I love my kids. They are the most caring group of kids that God could've sent us! These kids will randomly come up to me and ask if they can clean something. What?!? You read that correctly. Of course, they are still kids as you can see above. They did this yesterday while my energy was gone. And I did not care. And you should've seen the mess upstairs, but before I could say anything Ava said to me, "Mom, don't worry. We will clean up when we're done."
Okay. I think I did it!! If you are reading this, I successfully got past my inability to understand the blog!
So for right now this is a personal blog. It may become more because in my reading of blogs, I learned that I can make money simply by writing. We'll see. So for now, this is my first post. Ta-Da!
