Eden (left) and her friend McKinney play for 3 girls soccer teams
and even get asked to play with the boys team sometimes…
they are STUDS
and SO FUN to watch!!!
Tessa is trying out volleyball for the first time ever this year.
It’s a sport that I’ve never played,
not even just for fun,
so I’m learning long with her.
June Anne, our production manager, is the coach
and her 5th grade team won their first set of matches!
Great job ladies!!!
Christmas is just around the corner:
our 2014 Ornament Collection is here!
We hand molded each ornament in our studio and then cast them in beautiful fine pewter. We created them with everyone in mind — for moms, kids, teachers, new baby gifts, pet lovers, hostess gifts, and some are for the whole family –
we have a sweet ornament for everyone!
Some of our 2013 ornaments are being discontinued
(they all have 2013 in their title)
and once they are gone they won’t be restocked!
We created custom fundraising logo pieces for Victory Christian School here in Tulsa, OK–
we took their logo:
and turned it into a necklace…
and a keychain…

Last weekend Tessa and I headed (just the two of us) up to Topeka, KS for a soccer tournament,
I loved getting her all to myself for a couple of days!
One of the best things about soccer tournaments is terrorizing the hotel with hallway soccer!
Saturday morning it was a little foggy…
Her team played up in the older age group and took first place!
Great job, Blitz United!
This may be my favorite new piece from our fall collection!

We have a new necklace “love squared” that is a limited edition…
I love this dainty little necklace created with a sterling silver cube charm-
handstamp initials around the cube or add a heart, star or cross if you prefer!
Perfect for representing a family of 4, your kids, a couple (2 initials with 2 hearts would be sweet!)
or even a single girl with her initial all around the cube, so fun!
Our wholesale team took our handstamped wholesale jewelry collection to the Seattle Gift Show…
It was so beautiful there, the weather was nice for us!
We had a great time meeting new stores–
we were picked up in Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington and most all were new accounts
If you are interested in our wholesale collection please contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We took one of our most popular and loved necklaces and
turned it into a beautiful handstamped charm bracelet!
This bracelet is handstamped with any names and personalized just for you!
Finished on sterling chain with a sterling toggle and a freshwater pearl.
Need to add more names? Add them with an a-la-carte charm here.
Last Thursday our kids started a new school year…
We now have a 1st grader, 5th grader, 6th grader and an 8th grader.
Eden was so excited for school to start up again and then shed a few nervous tears when we were leaving her the first morning: as I went to give her a goodbye hug she wrapped her hand behind my neck and didn’t want to let go and I saw tears spring to her eyes- broke my heart!
She seems to have adjusted- this morning I heard a quick “bye Mommy!” as she ran off to class.
She has the same lunch period as Tessa and I love that Tessa can check on her (they are close besties)-
last friday Tessa showed her how to go through the hot lunch line for a piece of pizza.
She’s playing both rec soccer (Flower Kickers) and academy soccer (Blitz United) this fall.
Tessa’s favorite thing about 5th grade:
she gets her own locker.
Locker = best. year. ever.
Also, her cousin/bestie Isabella is in her class so that is just icing on the cake!
Her soccer team (Blitz United) is now officially a “competitive” team so there will be LOTS of soccer this fall (YAY!)
Jonah started middle school and is playing football this year–
so far his position is “slot receiver”, which I’d never heard of before, but he’s enjoying it,
and Ryan is the defensive coach for his team.
I. love. football season!!!
He’s also playing rec soccer- even MORE soccer to watch (YAY!)
Caleb started 8th grade and is officially taller than me at about 5′ 8″–
the monster kid wears a size 10 1/2 shoe and CONSTANTLY EATS.
He’s also playing football, he LIVES for football…
again: I. love. football season — it’s time to dust off the cowbells!
It’s going to be a great year!!!
Our apple for the teacher ornaments would make a great gift for your child’s teacher
or for a teacher friend that is starting a new year!
I love getting little treasures like this,
they totally make my day!
We sweetened up our popular ‘circle of love” necklace and made it even more meaningful with birthstones and a sterling heart:
TODAY ONLY: receive up to 5 birthstones and the silver heart for FREE,
(a $40 value, that’s HUGE!)
