Birthday surprise from Emily!

We celebrated my birthday today even though it was on July 6th and I was surprised by these awesome necklaces made by my daughter, Emily. She has sold quite a few of these at the Farmer's Market and in our Etsy shop and I've always admired them. NOW I am the proud owner of two handmade upcycled washer necklaces! These lovelies are 2 inches wide and will surely receive loads of compliments every time I wear them!

Oh and my wonderful husband gave me a Michael's gift card. He sure knows what I like! My present to myself was a 24 hour slumber party called Crop for Hope that was a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It was hosted by a long-time friend of mine who sells Stampin Up products. Please go take a look at her blog Stamp Crazy Girl. It was held at the Circle S Ranch bed and breakfast and let me tell ya, the place is out of this world awesome! You can go see it online at and even take a tour of the rooms. Mine was the Kansas room here and was just steps away from the table I used for scrapping. I made an entire scrapbook for my dog, Tucker, who died last October from cancer. I'll post some pics of that later, but for now I'm ready to go play with some of my new toys!

Pin It!


  1. I'm so glad you like the necklaces! I just knew I had to throw some pretty green in somewhere for you, because I know how much you love it. :o)


  2. Hi Sharon - you made me smile when you left your comments earlier - stalker # 525 - that is too funny! (I have actually been meaning to take those number thigs away - just like looking at all the smiling faces though - makes me smile back!)

    Your daughter's necklaces are absolutely so original - what a creative spark of ingenuity! They are genuis! Bet she can sell a bunch of them at the markets!!

    Thanks for your visit - it meant the world to me~~
