Because I likes me some oxygen.

Those cab mandrels took me for a test drive yesterday and this is where we ended up~

It will take some playtime to get them where I want them, but lemme just say I'm about to get my funky glass on.

Advice from a Tree
By Ilan Shamir

Dear Friend,
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots

To everyone else planting a tree today, Thank you! 



  1. I am not planting a tree but you just planted a seed in my heart with that. I gave that to my friend Deb when she was going through breast cancer treatment. Lovely sentiment.

    And check out the post I just did with the Grow Through Change piece. A seed of inspiration has been planted.

    Enjoy the day getting your glass ON, y'all!

  2. LOVE IT and I love seeing the process with these necklaces....I can't wait to show the new owners of them your blog when it's all done :O)
