Currently happening on my bench....
Shayne and I are hosting some thru-hikers coming off the #appalachiantrail tonight so I thought I'd whip up some little medallions they can wear or attach to their packs. My niece is part of the group and I am soooo excited to see her and hear about her adventures. I believe in little touchstones to have about major life experiences and boy, this is one of those times. So proud of her...and grateful we have space to offer some of them a warm and dry place to lay their heads for a night here in #roanokeva !!!
I've decided to offer these for sale and I've activated some more designs in my shop. Follow the link to my website if interested! These are available for $95. All #sterling silver and 2 inches long and 1 inch wide....they are big, but not heavy. I've signed them also on the back.
I wore these new #earrings all weekend while at #wildacresretreat and I swear they 'attracted' deep, universal conversations about purpose, dreaming and surrendering. These are quite different for me but I'm really vibing with them as I make some internal shifts. #metalstamping #makeastatement #sterlingsilver #handmadeearrings #sterlingsilver
I made another version of these gigantic earrings to wear to a retreat I'm going to next week. I gave the last pair to a gal that NEEDED them... super crystal and turquoise earrings that are all about amplified earth energy. But these I will wear until I meet someone else in my travels that NEEDS these, too.
Close up of what I'm working on...those bracelets!!!! New design that I'm loving!!!!

#hello there !!!
I've watched this #prayingmantis grow to an adult all summer long...he lives in an ostrich fern out my back door. I love watching everything mature in its season...
Enjoying a steak dinner with my pops this evening!

So today I was able to carve out some creative time, and my life has now moved into a space where I will have much more time to make again. I helped my father move into his new life and home this week and made some adjustments with my part time job. These new #mixedmetal beauties have been on my bench for a week and I was able to finish them today. Aren't they sweet? With a little earthiness too....this week's energy is about moving through half-hearted attempts towards commitment. Are you feeling it in your life? How is it showing up? I'm also on day 10 of committing to a #hflc way of eating and living it. #lowcarb #highfatdiet #ketogenicdiet #ketodiet
When I was a little girl, I had a special thinking spot on top of a stored canoe that had a large Rose of Sharon bush growing next to it that I claimed as my own. I have one now, outside my current thinking spot, and I've been contemplating a lot lately. Mostly about how I have used myself in certain situations as a sort of shield to forestall the movement of energy between others that needs to have a clear pathway. I've realized lately that pain is there to wake us up to the reality that something is trying to grow outside of its current container. I'm not as inclined to prevent that growth anymore. I'm not going to use my self as someone else's pain blocker. This is a turn in my own growth cycle...and has been quite revolutionary for me to realize. That, and understanding on a much deeper level that my opinion should only be expressed when invited to do so... tacitly, as in a group situation where open discussion is a part of the framework, or on an individual basis when someone really needs to ask for it. Timing is everything! It isn't my timing to express my opinion about someone else's decisions when I want to...but when asked to.

A bit of wild for my feathered friends... #birds
My first batch of chocolate peanut butter #fatbombs ....surprisingly tasty! I've lost about 5 pounds so far as I embark upon eating a paleo/ketogenic food plan... so so good!!!!
