Feeling Gem~y

rocks & gems, kodak ls753

I took a trip to my favorite bead store yesterday. It is a long drive from my place up the coast. I rolled down both windows so I could feel the ocean breeze through my hair strands that were dancing outside of my window. I found myself taking long, deep, replenishing breaths.

I love rocks and gems. I wish I was small enough to swim in them, take up home in one of their tiny holes.

Today, I will create with these divine elements while listening to this playlist I put together on iTunes for my day:

Wedding Day ~ Rosie Thomas
Red Meets Blue ~ Matt Wertz
Hockey Skates ~ Kathleen Edwards
Lay Lady Lay ~ Magnet
Riga Girls ~ The Weepies
Underneath the Stars ~ Kate Rusby
Forever My Friend ~ Ray Lamontagne
Because I Told You So ~ Jonatha Brooke
Big Strong Girl ~ Deb Talan
Drinks We Drank ~ Azure Ray
Caramel ~ Suzanne Vega
Black River ~ Amos Lee

I love the colors, and I bought three of the songs from iTunes:)

Big strong girl
Red Meets Blue

Baby is napping so I am going to get a nice cup of raspberry tea and find a ray of sun in my living room and relax listening to some music.

All I have been thinking about lately is beading. I have an idea in mind for a bracelet and yet I don't have the time to do it right now... Seeing your post is synchronicity! Plus yesterday I go a coupon in the mail from a bead place. Seems like I am being lead in that direction...

that picture made my mouth water!! i LOVE beads but I am not very good at committing them to jewellery. When I worked at the summer camp I had unlimited access to beads and hemp and wire and leather - SIGH!- it was so much fun! I can't wait to see what jewellery you create - get them on that site of yours, I'd like to own a piece of your art!! xoox
