Jewels Of the Sea Swap...yippeeeh I'm sooo lucky!!!

First I want to share my pendants I received from the *Jewels of the Sea Swap* hosted by sweet Heather @ The Speckled Egg. (FYI I am trying to use a new picture editor picnik, so we might experience some technical difficulties...stay tuned)

Heather added a lil bag of goodies to make your own pendant and Jenny @Fated Follies Studio made ATC's for every participant, that's 35 ATC's...WOW...Thanx ladies

I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have received such lovely pendants, I love them all and hope the recipients of my pendants are happy and feel lucky too. Another delight was the packaging some of the gals used, a real treat to see.

Tonya made pendants she called "Sea Goddess", they are stunning with sterling silver and gemstones, and swarovski crystal.

I think the most interesting pendant I received from Bambi Doe, a sea urchin adorned with beads holding a secret surprise...inside
Why hello there...Who is this lil surprise?!?

Leslie Patton had a beautiful tag that held her pretty pendant, I love the starfish.

Michelle @ hold dear made pretty soldered glass pendants that are
 as cute from the back as they are from the front...I like that... so if I'm feeling fits my moods...
I am in a delightful conundrum...which side first...How do I choose?!?

Julie of CupcakeDD made an adorable altered domino with the tiniest lil red rhinestone, I love it!

And last but certainly not least is this dainty lil pendant from Diane Glass. It is simplicity at it finest.  I love the *mosaic* shell bead and that rhinestone dangler...beautiful!

I thought I'd share the pendants I created for the swap. I used sea glass I found on my vacation, glass beads, pearls and copper charms. The moon charms signify the relationship between the earth, moon and tides. I like the fact that the ocean can take a piece of harsh broken glass and over time with the waves of the sea can turn that piece of glass into a beautiful smooth stone.

I have sooo much more to share...stay tuned...Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives...well mine anyway!

I've been sick and when I'm sick I like a lot of Chowder...

Not THAT chowder...THIS Chowder. It is one of my favs now...It's super de duperdy nonsensical sillyness. If you need a good giggle and are a *Big kid*, here's what you need...If you just want to hear the best love song ever...forward to the 3 minute mark at the end...ENJOY

Happy 4th of July!!!

I wanted to wish you all a happy 4th of July.

We are going up to Prescott, AZ., it's about 15 degree cooler and up in the pinetrees, really a nice place. I hope you and your families enjoy the day and the weekend.

I'd love to hear how you spent yours...
