Looking for a special artisan made gift for a friend or family member? I bought this one right here in town – custom designed!
My daughter-in-law just completed her student teaching AND college career. All that is left is walking for the diploma in May. I wanted to commemorate this special time in a gift for her-and this necklace was my answer!
A friend of a friend makes them. She will customize for you. Anne student taught 5th grade, hence the '5' on the typewriter key, and the phrases on the charms sum up well the times. I chose leather for the style, and Michaela nailed it with the beads!
Fun fact: Michaela , the jewelry artisian, is a middle school teacher! Just get hold of me and I'll get you her info.
My hubby, myself and our friends Sue and Dennis spent five days and four nights in Yellowstone Park again this New Year week. We did the same last year. So much fun! Laughter, food, food and more food, skiings, wildlife and more laughter!
I saw Santa off duty in Chico Hot Springs where we stopped to soak in the hot water on the way to the park. Cool guy, and Mrs. Clause is also in the photo. I told Santa I was on the Nice List this year and he said "to bad!" Ha! I told him I'd work harder to get on the Naughty List! True story!
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
