Hello Everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful moms out there! I knew I had to at least get this post in for all the moms I know!
It has been a bit of time since my last post here on my blog. I think for the first time I experienced the "Ides of March". March was such a tough month for me..I could not believe all of the horrible things going on in the world...especially with Japan. It seriously made me sad and lately with such dreary cloudy weather...it made everything worse!
Lately I have been reading so much negative sad things about our countries financial problems and why so many middle class Americans are being affected by this down turn. Gosh, I am not a dooms dayer by any means, but as I watch the price of silver and gold shoot up..I had to wonder what the heck is going on?
For Mother's Day... I hope all of my friends here take a moment to realize the importance of family, love and friendship. As I get older every year...I truly feel so grateful for my life with my children and loving husband.
It is also my birthday this month and my husband and kids purchased the sapphire in the ring above. I was tickled to actually make my very own ring and yes the cushion setting for it. Since I have the ability..I thought why not. I am not yet at the level of sapphires and diamonds..but this is my first "expensive" setting per say..and it sure came out well for me..and I get to keep this!
I am selling this in my store with white topaz instead to keep cost affordable, but if someone wants a sapphire..I can do that too!
We wish all of you a wonderful mother's day weekend. I hope you enjoy your family as much as I do mine.
I am going to be very busy this month as my son will be going to state finals at OSU for track. He also graduates high school this year. My children are ten years apart ..so it makes me realize how crazy fast time goes by. My son has been so athletic and so much fun to watch him play soccer and participate in track and field. I will definitely miss this. He will be leaving us to go to college this year...so were hoping!
My daughter is now 8 years old and what a sweet joy she is! She is very much a girly girl and one day I hope to run and operate a jewelry business with her. I plan on passing on everything I learn to her and yes..so far she seems like she is loving it too!
Happy Mother's Day Everyone! Cheers.
Thanks for reading!
