Blessings Part 2

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
In reading through some of the ArtFire forums this morning, it was quite obvious how we artisans are blessed by being a part of this community.
There are postings where members provide outreach for the shops of other artisans. This morning I received and email from Andrea saying that my shop was the featured shop on her blog. (To see it go to Andrea has such a beautiful blog and it is so neat that she is willing to share with others. Another example is Michele's blog at Nature Manipulated. (To see her blog go to She too shares her gift with others.
The ArtFire community is one in which the members really support each other. In many instances it is obvious that their thought is that it is more blessed to give than receive.
When you have a minute browse through some of the sites and their blogs. You'll meet some very interesting, gifted and caring people on your journey.
Have an awesome day!

Greetings everyone!

Today is one of those days where I truly recognize the many opportunities that I have been blessed with. I live in a country where I'm free to pursue so many different things like creating jewelry to share with others, the freedom to write this blog to express what's going on in my heart and mind.

Thanksgiving is next Thursday. Some of us will be with family and friends. Others will be alone...some without food or shelter, others without family or friends. I just can't image how it must feel.

This is the day of the Boy Scouts food pick-up. It's just one of the ways we who have can share with those who don't. Please take some time to see what you can do to share your blessings with others.

I'm going to take time this week to share some of the blessings I've received from the ArtFire community. I hope that you'll join me.

Have an awesome day!

It's been a busy time for me. There's so much going on and I want to share it in small chunks.

The big news right now is that our shop is being featured in a blog giveaway. The two pieces pictured here will be given away at the end of this week.

Glass and Wire Gems is being featured as the Monday Giveaway and Feature on Nature Manipulated's blog. You can see it at The rules and instructions for the giveaway are listed there.

When you have a minute, check out Michelle's site: She has some awesome gift ideas.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon.
