Being a Grown-up Is Fun!

One night this past weekend we were up late working on some projects. I was working on this (but that's a blog post for a different day):

We lost track of time, and suddenly it was 1:00 in the morning! How did that happen? As I waited for Derek to finish up one last thing, I decided to do a quick art project. Luckily (?), the teen was hanging around with a camera to capture my masterpiece.

I get silly when I'm tired.

Shimmer of the day: Smoky Quartz
It is said that smoky quartz can help you be more in touch with the universe. This is a stone of comfort and calming and is believed to be very helpful in relieving grief and depression. Smoky quartz can help in making sound finacial decisions and in managing money wisely.

As well as being Etsy sellers, we're also Etsy buyers. I often use "black bird" for search terms and I want to share a few of MY favourite things I've recently seen on Etsy!

And a white bird for good measure:

Shimmer of the day: BLACK SPINEL
-Black spinel is a protective stone; bolstering one's own inherent strength, hope, and will. Influencing both mind and body, black spinel aids in refreshing both the physical and mental states; improving physical mobility, as well as helping to stay grounded when dealing with difficult inter-personal situations.
