Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

As soon as my sweet E was born, I was craving a piece of jewelry that I could wear to remind me of both my boys. I came across this great little shop on Etsy called "Celebrate Today" and the moment I saw this gold, hand stamped necklace I knew it was exactly what I wanted. Mine arrived a few weeks ago and I have worn it virtually every day. I love it!
