The new Design of the Month (August) is now ready to order here.
Some of you requested that I make something from fine silver (PMC) for the Design of the Month. So I made these Summer themed earrings, I hope you enjoy!

While hiking on Sunday, we spied a black bear picking berries about 20 ft. from us...

As Yogi would say..."Because I'm smarter than the average bear, I'm off to look for pic-a-baskets"

Last weekend after getting back home from the coast, we grabbed a few hours of sleep and went hiking in Yosemite (Nevada Fall) I was surprised to see how well the falls are still flowing.
It was a warm day and by the time we made it to the top of the falls, it felt good to dip our toes in the icy cold water, pic #5.

Come back tomorrow as I have to show you something else we saw while cool.

I'm working on new Tide Pool Pendants this week. I'll list them on Friday (website)

It's back to reality today as I'm staring at the mountain of sandy clothes that need washing and frig that needs filling. But I feel refreshed and ready...
I'll be back later this week with some new things.

Therapy Time

It's therapy time...

Time to...
...take a break
...take long walks on the beach
...ride bikes
...wake to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore good (great) food
...look for shells and beach stones
...fill my lungs with salty air
... take late night walks through the little seaside town
...just relax.

Hope you are having a fun Summer too!

The Dog Days of Summer are here!
I listed lots of fun things on ebay today. There are dogs of all kinds, sea inspired beads to help cool us down (in our minds) Even a scuba turtle...

Yesterday I listed a few Tide Pool Pendants, which sold out fast (sorry) but I'll be making more very soon. I'll send out a newsletter when they are ready.

We continue to get ready for the upcoming hike to Half Dome that we are planning in October. Yesterday we choose to hiked Upper Yosemite Falls, which is a shorter hike than H.D., but steeper. So it was a great hike to get us ready. It was a warm day, near 90 degrees and the mist from the falls was very much appreciated. It took us 8 hours to hike it, which isn't bad. But we'll need to improve that time before we hike H.D.

Bead update- I have a couple things almost ready. I'll sent out a newsletter with more details. If you'd like to be notified, feel free to sign up for my newsletter.
Have a great week!
