Shelialk says: "My jewelry springs from my heart and I try to make it different and unique in some way. if I had my way I would spend all my time making jewelry. I try not to charge a great deal because I know that alot of people would like something new and pretty and unique but maybe cant afford to spend a lot. I just want to share something pretty with everyone."

I read Stephanie Meyer's Midnight Sun, her unfinished leaked out book. The story of Twilight from Edward's eyes. I read that and now need to see the movie again. Pretty silly I know. But this Young Adult Novel was very captivating.
I searched on Etsy for Twilight related stuff and I found:

(Elijah fishing at the Green Valley Ponds in Payson AZ)
Elijah is my youngest son. He's a Big Six years old. He was born in Taos, New Mexico at 12:40 am, in the birthing tub at the Midwifery Center. My Lil early Valentine. He really is such a sweet guy. He's so thoughtful. He's always smiling. If your not happy, he knows. He comes right over and gives you a hug and usually does something funny to make you change your mood. He is the sweetest Lil guy!
So this morning he awoke up with a big shy smile. I started to sing to him. The smile grew even bigger. He got dressed and came out to the living room which was transformed into a birthday fiesta. Balloons and streamers and a Big birthday banner. And Presents sitting on the couch. He didn't see the presents yet. He ate Breakfast(he wanted blueberries with oatmeal) Then he asked do I get a present?
Brandon turned on the radio and put in a tape. The Beatles "Happy Birthday". Its our tradition. Dance around singing along. He opened a few presents and then off to catch the bus. I'll be going to his school later to bring a treat, and to do some Valentines things w/ his class.
Then Brandon is taking off early from work to surprise Elijah. Games, Birthday Dinner, and a few more presents.
Have a wonderful day today! I know that I will. Its my Celebration as well.

Alysse made this one:
I think we are going to keep having Power bra parties and keep on selling them to raise money. Did you know that each Kimo thearpy is $10,000!! I know that Carri's got insurance but will only cover 80%. She isn't working right now. Did I tell you she's a Dula? Here Husband Bill is working. Its really hard for them to come up with the money. Also the Doctors found a spot on her liver. Cancer on the liver too. Its not right! Carri is so young she's 31. She is soo Positive, such a supper Mama!! I'm in awe.
Here's two that I made:
this one sold (YAY!)
Notice the Bra donation bag hanging from the Manakin (oh so clever):
Hope everyone has a Cheerful Tuesday!!

Earlier on that day I had the erge to make a mask to wear, I didn't have any. So I decided to make some out of a leather Shammy. You know the kind you buy at the store in the Automotive section, to polish your car with. I bought one, it was about a 12 inches by 12 inches and only $8.oo
Next I drew on a piece of paper my ideas. Then when I had the design I wanted I drew it onto the leather. I cut it out with my scissors. (its pretty thin) I then got out a bowl and poured equal parts of Liquid Starch(you can get in the laundry section of most grocery stores) and Wood glue or you could use Elmer's glue. I let it soak in for about 20-30 min. Then I took out the masks and got the excess mixture off and gave them a little squeeze.
I then put them on to my manikin heads and formed them a little. I then let them dry. I would of let them dry in there own time. Instead I turned on the blow dryer. Much faster.
Then I punched holes in the sides (where I could tie the elastic onto)
I got out my acrylic paints and started painting them. I used the blow dryer again to help them along to dry. Then they were done and ready to wear. I was surprised on how well they turned out.
Here's a picture of all three that I made:

It's such a good feeling to know you're alive.
It's such a happy feeling: You're growing inside.
And when you wake up ready to say,
"I think I'll make a snappy new day."
It's such a good feeling, a very good feeling,
The feeling you know that we're friends.
Mr. Rogers, was so great!

Was it too cloudy for the Groundhog to see his shadow??
Well the results are in................
What did the Ground hog see?
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) - The world's most famous groundhog has seen his shadow which, legend has it, means this already long winter will last for six more weeks.
Its sunny here in Eugene, Oregon today. Is it sunny where your from? Will you have more winter, or will you see an early spring? I'm not sure if I believe in all of this. Its been felling like spring all the last week. All the bulbs are popping up. Whatever the weather turns out to be. It will all be good.
