The clever musings or uncomfortable rants depending on hormonal fluctuations of a wireworker/jeweler Mom attempting to create desirable doodads in the rare free moments when I am not parenting my adorable children.

Cherry jewelry and more summer fun
The new cherry earrings are in the shop!
And the matching cherry pendant.
We had our cousin Jennifer and her daughter Saro visit for a few days. So we went
to the Newport Aquarium.
We had a little smores making fire pit in our back yard.
And a beautiful day at the Oregon coast. We watched seals and/or sea lions play in the surf
right in front of us. Max was in heaven.

A meeting of minds…
Earlier this spring I came across this picture on Ravelry –the
wonderful knit and crochet online community I love to browse.
It is our Brass Looping Crossed Knots Celtic Shawl Pin on a gorgeous
Boo Knits lace shawl. The picture below gives a good view of how
beautiful Boo Knits lace shawl designs are. When one of the knitters
on the Boo Knits forum suggested that Bev (the Boo Knits creator)
collaborate on a shawl pin we both jumped on it and were excited
to work together. We started emailing each other with ideas
and the perfect Boo Knit shawl pins were born. Bev was so kind and
easy to work with.
This is the Aluminum Boo-Knits Shawl Pin we created. It sort of says “BOO” without
being too BOO.
This is the smaller simpler Little Sterling Silver Boo-Knits Lace Shawl Pin. We
decided to keep the smaller lace pin version less complex so as not to distract
from her intricate lace shawl designs.
This is the Boo-Knits Copper Shawl Pin. They have all been selling very well I am
happy to say.

No big trips planned this summer. Relaxation is one of the goals. We joined the
Corvallis Country Club with their summer membership so we can enjoy the pool
10 minutes from home complete with pool side waiters bringing delightful beverages
We had our traditional 4th of July shindig with our good friends the Abernathys.
Mostly we are staying up way too late including the kids because we are poorly
disciplined self employed parents who don’t need to be anywhere early. And sleeping
in late too.
