This past summer, Tiffany asked us to custom design a bracelet for her upcoming IVF. She visited us again in March to have a Childbirth and Labor bracelet designed for her. I'm in love with the way it came out.
Thanks, Tiffany! I hope it brings you a smooth delivery!
Thanks Irelle! We hope you love the bracelet as much as we do!
"You can't expect to receive that what you do not give."
I can blame it on PMS or a number of other things, but the truth is....those mornings when I wake up stressed or cranky, I have pre-written my day. Stress and "crank" is what I am sending out to the world. And stress and additional reasons to be cranky is what I will attract...
I love what I do....creating jewelry. I love it when a customer calls or writes with a question or wanting help in picking out the perfect fertility bracelet. I love when a customer receives their piece and they write to let me know how much they love wearing it....
...but do fertility bracelets REALLY work?
I think sometimes we really forget (or maybe never have learned how) to....truly and passionately relax.
There's a quote from one of my most favorite movies: Eat, Pray, Love....
“La Dolce Far Niente”
The character goes on to translate it to meaning the "art of doing nothing".
I translate it to meaning “Doing what freely comes from letting yourself have no shoulds and musts. Relax with passion"
So tonight my "freely comes" includes: writing, Mallomars, a great movie and a room filled with the scent of my favorite candle (at the moment).
What do you do for your own "freely comes"?
Over here in New Jersey, it's been a few relentless days of chilly, rainy, grey, windy weather.
I can say now...I have loved having them.
Three days of no makeup, fluffy fat socks, comfy clothing, no running around, cancelled plans, catching up with friends. And the best part of working in a studio within my home....sneaking in some cat naps while my husband and son of off doing their 9-5 and schoolday days.
The first day, I actually ended up working my way through all of my paperwork. (Even WITH a nap!)
The first night, I relaxed with some tea, my boys, and Monday night football.
The second day, I made it to a yoga class for the first time in...I don't remember. And another nap, of course!
The second night, I started getting restless and dug into a part of my business that I hadn't touched in a long time...only to find I had a mini mess going on. That night? Ended at 2AM the next morning.
The third morning, with only a few hours of sleep and ALL of my work done, I finally sat down and got to the the part of my business I really love. Creating. And it's been a really positive and fun day for me, even with no nap :)
I am onto my third night now, and signing off to go enjoy it.....
Stay tuned for some really great new pieces in the weeks to come. Check back now and then in the New at InJewels section of the shop...and let me know what you think!

Do not dwell on history and the past. Take the lessons you have learned from it and live in the present. Only then can your life move in a positive direction.
