I hope that you all had a wonderful beginning, here it is already January 4th! December was busy and both emotionally and physically draining. We lost a beloved member of our family on Christmas day when she took her last breath. I thought that to be quite serendipitous, we buried her husband 3 months prior from Cancer as well. Such a disgusting disease! Brings on so much pain and suffering for everyone involved. We loved her so much. They were the matriarchs of our family and Christmas gatherings will forever be changed...
We're off to a brand new start. 2012. It brings some anxiety and some excitement. (I am excited!) It seemed so far away to me as a child and now, here we are! I intend for a prosperous year with new beginnings and lots of art pieces accomplished! I also intend for every one of my brothers and sisters of mother earth to come together in peace and raise our consciousness with our beloved Gaia! There is a lot of information out there for those wishing to find it on how to raise your consciousness levels. It's not found outside of you though! The kingdom is "within". Go to a quiet place and meditate for a few moments for for many, it's up to you. But be in a quiet place and quiet the mind and connect with our creator. It takes time, but you will soon feel more at peace and it's gets easier to 'stay' in the moment. I can say that with confidence because if this ADHD adult can do it, anyone can!
Okay. I'll sign off for now. The following pictures are gifts I made for friends at Christmas!
The first is a 'loaded' bracelet with different grades of aquamarine, blue sapphire and silver filigree beads, the second pair of earrings are 14k gold levers and 14k gold plated wire. All beads are genuine Swarovski Crystals! Aren't they gorgeous! The last is for a October born fiery, lovable gal so I chose the red stones in her birth month. Coral, Rubies and garnet make this "Lady in Red" so special!
