A Christmas Miracle

I got engaged back in November, a week after my 5th anniversary. and then last sunday while watching his nieces christmas play I lost the engagement ring...And didint know it.

I know I had it at her play (A cinderella Christmas) then we cam home ate dinner and went to watch her younger sisters sing at there chuch where they were having there play. well when they said closing prayer I bowed my head and noticed my ring was gone. I thought oh great just what I need!

So we left and hunted around my vehicle and around the house. My fiances mother told them at the church to keep an eye out for it. Then the next day she called to see if i had found it. I hadnt.
So she went to the Stone center (where the play was held) and hunted around in the room where we were. never found it. So she gave them her number and said if by chance someone finds it please call me.
well no call.....Then on Wednesday on our way home from Winston-Salem Hospital (future Sil has to go once a month) We got a call from my fiances other sister. They had found the ring at the stone center!

wal-lah, yipee, awesome! Ms.Janet the kind lady that found my ring, Told me I was very lucky and should play the lottery. :P Because they had just had two confrences in that same room w/ 400 + people in each conference and no one ever saw the ring. She found it when she hit with a dust mop, while cleaning up. Isnt it a Miracle!? So now the Ring is safely back on my finger where it belongs! ♥

~Brag Day!

Ok it is time once again for me to Brag a little bit about some Etsy Friends and let in on a little bit about them and there shops.

Today I am Bragging about Kellie of

Here is a bit of info about me. First of all many people may not know is I met my husband Tom on the internet back in 1997. We dated long distance for 18 months and he moved to California where I lived and we married March 28 1998. We love to Cruise and just returned from a 2 week cruise in Europe. I Love fall in Las Vegas, we are planning a day trip to Zion Park next month to see all the wonderful fall colors.We have a house full of pets two cats and two dogs they are constantly entertaining us. I've got two daughters and one grandson and a granddaughter coming in Dec. Life is good to keep my life in harmony and balanced I chant daily I'm a buddhist and we believe a positive attitude creates positive results. It works!
For my creative side I've found I get bored quickly so I'm working on tons of things at once this drives my husband crazy. I love working with Hot Glass creating jewelry and Art pieces. This lead to creating other kinds of jewelry using natural stones, Swarvoski crystals and other mediums.Many years ago I worked with Leather and am going to get back to working with that as well. My first artistic love was drawing, prisma charcoal, pencil drawings and pen and ink. So I may be adding these to my eclectic site.
Work: I am a freelance graphic designer and I'm lucky enough to have a few ongoing clients that keep me quite busy.

Here are a few of her Favorites from her Etsy shop!

Here is My Favorite Item from her shop! I love Fall, and this is just Awesome!
