Sometimes I need a reminder (read-kick in the butt) that my world is not at my computer. I get sucked into the online world of my Etsy shop, Facebook, and any other random site I go to and forget to LIVE! So today, here are your instructions:Go outside!! Get dirty! Get Grass stains on your clothes! Count how many birds there are in your trees! Skip down the sidewalk! Do anything that doesn't happen inside. Even if it is just for 15 minutes, you will feel more alive than you did sitting here reading this! As for me, I'm going outside to find some rocks to look under, some four-leaf clovers for discover. Come on, let's go outside!

I created this spotlight because as a goal for 2009 I want to learn 3 new crafts. Two that I definitely want to try are needle felting and journal making. The other one is probably going to be soap, although I am already learning how to make lip balm, so that is kind of 4! Check out www.byhand.me for more spotlights!

Ok, this piece is probably one of my favorites. It will be hard to let go of it when it sells! I call it "Sea Ice" because the frosty blue beads and the iridescent shell pieces remind me of ice chipped off of a glacier. I think it is delicate yet eye-catching. I try to make pieces that would seem to have a story behind them (as you can tell in my Etsy descriptions) as if they have a life all their own. They are more fun to wear that way! You can check this bracelet out in my Etsy store!

I love the colors pink and green together, maybe because they remind me that Spring is coming! In light of a new season approaching I made these Clambake Earrings out of baby pink glass beads and green shell beads. they are perfect for a seersucker dress and sandals! I've listed them in my Etsy shop, which brings me up to 10 items! That was my goal for this week. Hope they make you feel like Spring is in the air!
My husband is an assistant pro at a local golf course. He loves the game and he loves helping people improve their games. One of the ways he does this is by teaching them drills that they can practice to improve a certain aspect of there game, whether it be driving, chipping, putting, etc. He just wrote an article on Ehow.com that teaches a putting drill. It is simple enough for even a beginner golfer, but will improve your putting very quickly. Check out the article by clicking the link below!
