For the love of Spring

Peace on Mother Earth

Spring is here and it feels so awesome. It’s so grounding to work in the garden and play in the dirt. The rose bush is starting to get it’s new leaves and a few seeds are starting to sprout. The first flowers have shown their faces and the weather is warm and cold. Just like spring. We woke up to spring showers with thunder and lightning this morning. The birds are singing strong and all is well. Here are a few spring pictures from our Arizona home.

Have faith in the beauty that is in your heart. Let it shine ! Know I am always with you in good times and hard times. I am the truth the light and the way. Forever eternal love 🙂 ❤

As the days go by I am forever grateful to be here and to be able to experience all the beauty of Mother Earth and all of life. This is what you can be a part of everyday. Sit with it all. Breath, feel and love. Open the door of your heart and let it all in. Let the sun and air move through you, let the thoughts drift by like clouds in the soft breeze. Listen to the songs of the birds carried by the wind. Go deep and let go.

Blessings of love and peace!

Beaded amulet bags

Wow ! What a month. First check this out. We have had 2 big snow storms this month. That is a record breaker for us. Yesterday, the sun started to show again. Once again, this fine morning, the sun has come in in all his glory.

Just to show you the second snowstorm looked like this. It actually snowed for 2 days. It does melt off pretty fast here in Arizona. 🙂

The little birds were waiting in the tree for the bird feeder to get full. I love watching these little winged ones. ❤

During all this weather we have been beading and sewing. Here a couple bags that are a little bigger than our usual medicine bags. They are 5 inches tall x 3 inches wide with a drawstring closure. They come in a variety of colors and if you prefer a neck strap , no problem. These are new in our Etsy shop.

Beading art

It’s been a busy week of beading. Beading is an absolute awesome way to center your mind and focus your attention. When beading all I can do is the one thing, well of course I usually put on some background music so I do listen to music. It’s a blessing to be able to do this art. The journey started for me a little more than 30 years ago.

This is the beadwork work in progress I showed you last week. It started with a Thunderbird. I put the beaded Thunderbird on a small leather pouch.

This amulet bag would be perfect for a special stone, crystal , medicine or keepsake. There are as many uses for these kinds of bags.

My work in progress this week is a beaded rainbow turtle. I have finished the turtle and am working on the bag. The bag is also going to have linear beadwork down the sides. Coming soon! 🙂 Here is a picture of the turtle.

That’s it for today. Thanks for taking a look.

Welcome 2019

Happy New Year to all ! Another year has come and gone and now we are in the new beginnings of a new year. We are so very grateful to all our customer friends for the awesome support we received in 2018. Thank you so very much for supporting our small business! You Rock! 🙂 ❤

We ended the year with a huge snowstorm and very cold temperatures. This picture is just the beginning of the snow storm. It is all starting to melt now but another storm is on it’s way to us. This is big in Arizona. We are used to maybe a little snow but it melts soon after it comes. It is very pretty!! I have to admit I will be happy to see it melt. In the meantime we stay home and off the roads. We ended up getting around 4 inches of snow. Yippie! 🙂

What a great time to be creative. That is what we are doing the beginning of this new year and onward. Staying warm by the fire we make new bags.

We are looking forward to seeing what this New Year brings. We wish you all the best going forward! 🙂

Blessings!

Beaded leather sunflower bag

I created a different beaded rosette this week and love the way it turned out. First I got all the beads and stones I wanted to use . As you can see I started off with a simple yet elegant turquoise stone cabochon. Around the turquoise I added some glass fire polish beads in a turquoise green color that went with the turquoise cab. From there it was some of my favorite colors of glass seed beads that I thought would look real pretty in this colorful sunflower.

Once I had the rosette done I decided what color of leather this beaded rosette would look good on.

We have a variety of hides in the shop so I take the beaded rosette off to the leather shelf and start pulling hides down. This time I picked a wonderful mahogany color hide. It is one of my favorite colors. It reminds me of the red rocks in Sedona.

Now it’s time to decide what kind of bag do I want to make. This time I decided to do one of our favorites which is a simple fringed handbag. It’s great for a phone and a few other items. It’s also a great place to keep a special journal.

We cut out the bag, lace it up and now it’s time for the beaded rosette to be added. I glue it down then I sew it down. Then I lace around the rosette giving it a beautiful extra dimension. As you can see in the picture.

This fringed leather handbag measures 8.5 inches tall x 7.5 inches wide and has a 48 inch crossbody four point braided strap. It can be thrown over the shoulder , worn crossbody or tied around the waist with a loop knot.  It will hold a large or small phone and a few other things.  I also feel this is a wonderful way to keep a special journal. Like a gratitude journal or a journal you are writing special prayers and keepsake quotes from yourself and other special people.

The beauty of a new day

Waking up before the sun has came up is a real treat. First thing is coffee then I get Rosie (my fur baby) and we step outside. The birds are always busy doing what birds do and the morning glories have just opened up and are ready for a new day. Hummingbirds are flying by finding flowers to enjoy. What a beautiful way to wake up.

This morning when I looked up Grandmother moon was there in the blue sky with a few clouds surrounding her. The clouds had a touch of pink with the sun almost ready to peak out from the small mountain. Oh what a treat!

In this grateful moment in time I decided to snap a couple pictures of the moon and morning glories.

We have been blessed with a awesome monsoon season this year. We have a few days of dry weather before they start up again. We are so thankful for the rain.

I wanted to share these few pictures . There is beauty all around us. We don’t even have to go away from where we are to find it. The magic of Mother Earth surrounds us.

Blessing for a beautiful day!

Debbie
