An Explanation



I’ve had several questions about my blog and where I got the idea for the name, etc.  I thought I’d give all my new friends the reader’s digest version of my blog’s history.  In bullet form, because I like them.

So there you have it. Just like links on a chain, little things come together to make awesome things.

Like this necklace.

Blue Hand Beaded Necklace

Isn’t this beautiful?!  My friend Lala of Silverleaf Creations made it by hand.  It’s an ice blue hand beaded adjustable choaker with a crystal pendant.  It also comes with matching earrings.  These pictures don’t do it justice.  It’s just stunning and one of a kind.  If you’re looking for something to get noticed, this would be it!

One lucky person gets to try it out too.  I am jealous because really, this is beautiful.  All you need to do is leave me a comment!

Day 3 Giveaway Beaded Necklaces

We have a bonus prize today also of 2 hand made earrings by Lala.  One pair is a set of sparkly heart crystals.  I have a set of these from her and I always get comments whenever I wear them.  The other set is a pair of carved ivory and blue stone earrings.  Everything is made from high quality Sterling silver and is hypoallergenic.

To enter the earring giveaway you MUST tweet about this contest and leave me a separate comment about it here.  These would make beautiful presents for your sweethearts or get you noticed in a crowd.

Thanks for all your comments this week so far!  Keep them coming!


PS- Here’s another legal disclaimer that said I’m not affiliated with Silverleaf Creations in any way other than we hula for fitness together.  I thought you guys would really like these pieces so I got them for you.

    I love the story about your waterfall dream. I was wondering where you got the name of your blog from. Very interesting symbolism. As for using nicknames, Julien wishes I had done that now. He’s a little creeped out that you can Google our name and find my blog. Maybe it’s time to make it private.

    OK…Whats the button and the tag cloud. I wish I could join your contest but alas I do not twitter. Bloging and Facebook and my new website is it bit much as it is. So I will just have to be happy with reading. Which is great because I get to keep up. I gotta a little gift for the princess.
