I'm not much of a jewelry person. In fact, I own very little of the
shiny stuff. However, when I saw a post on Facebook about someone
receiving some inspirational jewelry they got fromKelly Fehr with Jewelry in BrailleI
was curious. I clicked on the link and saw all the beautiful handmade
jewelry she makes. What I love the most about it is that it is done in
I casually mentioned this awesome jewelry to
Paul and bookmarked the website. And to my surprise, he surprised me
with the "Never Give Up" bracelet for Valentine's Day. This is a very
fitting expression in our house and means a lot to me.
The bracelet was a little bit big so I contacted Kelly. She quickly sent me the right size and was wonderful to work with!
I just thought I'd share this beautiful bracelet with you and let you know how much I love it.

The thing about having a four-year-old in preschool is we end up with A LOT of artwork. Which is great...but I only have so much room on my refrigerator. Alexa loves to display her creations and I thought there must be a better way. So...I made an ART wall. I looked on Pinterest for inspiration and although I found a bunch of cute ideas, I ended up going in a bit of a different direction than anything I had found.
I started by finding several frames that I already had but weren't currently being used. I laid them out on the floor to try and get a feel for what the final conglomeration might look like. I ended up using a couple more frames than what I had laid out originally.
Then I got my bucket of acrylic paint out and painted all my frames a different bright color. Paul thought I was going crazy because I typically don't go with BRIGHT colors but I assured him it was going to be OK.
I put fabric in some of the frames, left the big center frame open and added a couple of different accents just for interest and texture. Then we added the artwork. We've already changed the artwork out many times and Alexa has a great time picking out pictures to hang up next.
It was a fun project that definitely adds a bit of color and fun to our dining room!
