Another Favorite Project

Okay now I’m going to just gush about these…

Bangles. Sliding Adjustable Bangles. Stacking. Collecting Charm BANGLES!

Making these is my absolute favorite job. Picking the charms out that go together, that compliment each other. Designing some of the charms I have in my shop even. Shopping and creating as a job, nothing is better than that!

But, well, I have a problem. I keep a ton. I put together collections I like, phrases, and symbols, and well I cant resist keeping tons for myself.  Luckily, there’s a ton of other people who seem to like them as well since they fly out of my etsy shop.

This here is my collection (most of it).

And yes I wear them all at once sometimes.

This here’s a picture of me my when I adore them all.

 I love the jingle they make when they’re all on, and I have a lil thing for stainless steel, can ya tell?

Even my wedding band is stainless steel. This love I can not even explain. I want to say its the simplicity, durability, and the color mostly.

Each charm, states something of me, I wear them for me. But you could genuinely read them and know a lot about me. That right there is what style is, isn’t it?  The statements of you.

All of it is in my etsy store.

Unfriended

I have never had a lot of Facebook friends, never needed to nor wanted to.

And as another year comes to an end I decided to clean house in that department. I went from 54 to 29 Facebook friends, even unfriending my so called bff (she hasn’t noticed or simply doesn’t care, I haven’t heard from her since Halloween). And that right there is my whole point.

I don’t want to be friends with anyone that wont notice I’m gone. And I do not expect anyone to notice right away, no one really has. One person though was so upset they pretty much unfriended me in real life because of it. Making what I did out to be a shitty thing to do to them. When in fact it had nothing to do with them and everything to do with me.

You see for the last 6 months I noticed I was the only one holding up both sides of all but two of my friendships, its like I had an open door, a room full of people but I was invisible! I decided to close the door after shoving everyone out.

Facebook isn’t what makes us friends.

A friend is someone that answers a text, or message or the rare phone call Someone that shows up to your invite on time. Doesn’t blow you off. Or even, as in the case of the two women I now call my only friends, not allowing me to cancel on them simply because no one else is coming.

This was my New Years Resolution for 2016, but I think its more of a gift to myself.

Only allow people into your life that will notice if you were gone.

Its begining to look a lot like Christmas

I love Christmas.

I love the decorations, the lights, the music.

I can be found listening and singing along to Time Life’s Treasury of Christmas, older classics. I hate the new mixes of these songs.

I love the warm glow of the tree lit in the corner of my living room. I love the bright glow of the 10 foot tall tree I put up in my entryway and how it reach’s the 2nd floor, and how as you go up the stairs they wrap around the tree. My house smells of apple cinnamon.

The light are hung up around the gutters around my porch, as a smiling snowman greets you, and the wreath I just made hangs happily on the front door.
