A lovely day

I was invited to attended our schools ladies table setting luncheon yesterday.  It was my first attending.  Each table is sponsored and decorated with that persons theme.  Our tables theme was "Bird's Bakery a spring time retreat".  It was beautifully set with a spring theme.   We had a lovely time.

This was the treat at our table.  It was a delicious sponge cake.   
This tables theme was "For the Birds".                                                                                       

This was a mother daughter table for the 2010 graduating class.                                                                 
 This table theme was an herb garden                           
This table was dedicated to "Our Lady".  This was my friend's Georgette's table.  I made the rosary chaplet bracelets for the favors for this table.

She put each bracelet in an organza bag with a prayer card.  It turned out beautiful!
This was St. Therese, the Little Flower                                                                        
This tables theme was "Spring is Here".        
There was even a pirate themed table.  This one was called "It's a Pirates Life for me"  Very whimsical!

Overall, a very fun way to spend the day with friends and help out our parish school.

Chaplet Bracelets

These beautiful chaplet bracelets are for a charity event at our parish school.  I was asked if I would make them for one of the tables at our ladies table setting luncheon.  Each table has a theme, and this tables theme is Our Blessed Mother.  So, at each place setting there will be one of these bracelets for the guest.  I think it is a nice touch.  I am looking forward to attending the luncheon.  I am actually a guest at another table.  Hopefully, I will remember to bring my camera to take pictures.

Life in the Fast Lane

It's been hard to keep up with everything!  Life is so crazy.  It seems like it was just January and now we are in the middle of April.  I have been consumed with my parents as of late.  There care is increasing and I am struggling to make it all work.  Having the boys off for Easter makes it equally challenging.  With hubby traveling for work, I have to find a delicate balance. 

I have been blessed with many orders for my rosaries.  I truly love making them and they are my way of relaxing.  Each one is an expression of love for Our Lady.  You may have noticed that I have added a new slideshow bar of my rosary and jewelry work.  I will update as I add new pieces.  It always feels like Christmas when I get new parts in the mail.  I just got in some beautiful sterling confirmation medals.  I can't wait to do something with them. 

This is one of the rosaries I made this Easter.  It is a beautiful pale blue/green.  The beads are Amazonite for the Aves and the Pater beads are a Czech crystals in blue lagoon.  The center is the Sacred Heart and the crucifix is of the Holy Family.
