Navajo believed Clear Quartz first caused the Sun to cast its light upon the world. It is known to encourage clarity of thought and purpose to one’s heart and mind. I’ve always had an eye for them and struggled with my purpose. Kind of makes sense that I am facinated by them. I found this little piece of Quartz on a creek bank deep in the woods. In a place where l feel at home more than any place in the world.
Finished a project today that I had been working on longer than I expected. I had a friend ask me a couple months ago to help her create a gift for her husband. They are both fans of Dream Catchers and she had a pair of old Liberty overalls that her husband refused to throw away.
I pondered and pondered on how to incorporate these in a dream catcher. It just couldn’t imagine how I wanted it. I realized one day if I didn’t start with something I was never going to get it done. So I started with the basics and formed a tree in the center. Then I started cutting the legs of the overalls in long strands and that was all it took to get me going.
I learned for important lessons from this dream catcher.
1. Just go with it.
2. Let your creativity take the wheel.
3. Trust your own judgment.
After I started working on the dream catcher it all just come together. I was very pleased with the outcome. I was glad that I took a little risk with it by going outside the box and adding the pocket. It makes for a great place to stash your dreams.

Spending time with your family and friends is what the holidays is all about. A great way to make some memories and share some quality time with your family is making handmade ornaments. They are also priceless and the memories are something everyone will never forget.
Some of my favorite things about Christmas is the handmade ornaments. Each year I try to come up with a new creative ideas for ornaments. As you all know I love to recycle things and this is a great way also to do that.
I love to get the Christmas Ornaments out and put them on the tree. My tree never has much of a theme or pretty cordinating colors but it always turns our to be extra special with all the personlized touches from everyone.
Some of my most precious possessions are made from popcycle sticks, pom poms, and hot glue. I have ornaments made by my son, nephews, friends, and family and they are so special to me. I even have some ornaments I made when I was a kid. I was so grateful that my mom keep them and later gave them to me.
There are so many ideas for Christmas Ornaments when you look. Lots of them cost very little or could be done with out any cost. When I was a kid we made salt dough ornaments every year. I always looked forward to it. If you don’t have a big budget these make great gifts as well. Check out my Pinterest Board. I have a collection of recipes and tutorials.
