Keepsakes Can Mean So Much

img_3530I love with all my heart all of my precious keepsakes given to me by special family members and fabulous friends. You know keepsakes do not have to be some costly gift to be special to you.

In my studio I have pieces of paper some with just scribbles of crayon or markers, many pictures of me drawn by some of my favorite little people.. Seeing them there makes me smile. I remember the nature of one of my gifts. My grandgirl was about 4 before she could write very well and she made me a Mothers Days card, with her mothers help, that says #G’ma you are a great women!” the best part was she said to her mother that will make G’ma laugh, she knew it would. It still cracks me up when I sew it!

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them some of the smaller ones more than the larger. I find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

I have a set of Christmas Ornaments given to me by one of my closest friends and they mean the world to me, and are one of my prized possessions. Every year when I get them out I smile and think of her and my life at the time she gave them to me. So heart warming!

I have a recent keepsake created and given to me by a sweet redhead of Lucy and Ethel, which represents her and I.

A charm bracelet from my mom and dad.

I think you get the point, but I could continue typing all day. Its not about the cost its about the love that goes into finding just the right item.

I definitely would love everyone to purchase from Glam Girls Pretties, there are many items there that make great keepsakes. But more than that, this holiday season I would love to see people really give heart felt meaningful gifts!

I received this message after I had sent her a confirmation of her order! It’s these small moments we need to celebrate, to smile and delight in them. I wrote her back letting her know that I was thrilled to have a small part in her story.

Perfect gift for your Ring Bearer

badge Recently someone asked me about a gift for their ring bearer. I hadn’t realized I did not have any items for a ring bearer in my shop. So I have now listed a few I created. My fav, by far is this Ring Security Badge, hand stamped on a 1 3/4 ” star, with the little guys name, it has a brooch pin on the backside so he could wear it or it could be attached to a pillow or other item he will carry. Great for a rustic country wedding.

I also created these two ring bearer backpack charms, on 1″ x 2″ dog tags, one says the same thing as the badge and had a star charm attached. The other one says the ring bearer’s name and Keeper of Our Keys. Anyone of these would make the perfect gift for your Ring Bearer!

Customer: Placed an order for Soulmates Necklaces with this message attached.

I have ordered these previously but unfortunately lost them when my house burned down in July. My man and I wore these everyday and I’m going to surprise him for his birthday with another one :) Thank you for making such unique and meaningful art :)

ME:

I am so sorry to hear about your fire. How touching that they meant that much to you both.

Customer:

Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. They meant so much and we were so bummed that they didn’t survive and I just haven’t had a chance to reorder them with all the madness! But thank you again so much for the beautiful jewelery! I can’t wait for them to arrive :)

Also available for gram, grammy, nana, and any other female grandparent.

Creative Energy

We have already established the fact that I am creative and relish the whole creative process. Sometime though I if I am working on my charm necklaces or any other piece that is similar to the last I get bored at that point I do not find that creative satisfaction. At that point I must be creative and release that creative energy.

I was thinking about Bold statement necklaces which are very big for fall 2012  and winter 2013, so last night became one of those nights where I needed to release built up creative energy.  I settled down at my work table with my supplies. The first few attempts at creating something abstract were not additions I would consider using on my jewels. But as I kept trying this and that I came up with a fabulous bold abstract flower pendant, which I fell in love with.After I made the flower charm I then needed to make a charm necklace to put it on.check out my Etsy 

I actually came up with a few abstract designs (see first pix) and I will be using them in a couple of other pieces.

Even though I am satisfied with the designs I created I am still excited to see the many more designs, I can create. Let me know what you think?
