Aaron and baby Morgan
Last week there was a tragic fire. I never imagined going to a funeral for our happy little baby, Morgan. I’m so heart-broken. He was my Sister’s Grandson, nine month old, Morgan, (my nephew Aaron’s baby) who perished in a tragic house fire, along with his brother, Mason, a 4-year-old, and their other Grandmother, Julia Earl, 57 in Michigan Center, Michigan one week ago. The children died of smoke inhalation.
Please pass this info on to others who would help support and pray for my Nephew, Aaron Tello and Lexi Earl who lost everything. Here is a link to the “gofundme” account. http://www.gofundme.com/qgg95w4
Baby Morgan and big brother Mason
How many stages of grief are there?
Relentless pain, Sorrow, Anger, Numbness…and trying to stay strong and imagine babies with angel wings. Trying to write feelings regarding loss…this terrible, horrific, tragedy, is so confusing. Going in Faith is my pathway. Please save time today to pray for Aaron and Lexi, and all the families shocked by the terrible loss of life.
Our sweet baby Morgan
Our little ones were so loved and cherished.
Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being.
Captured some amazing light this morning.
A snow day with no time to relax. While I was busy working on photographing a new bracelet that I later posted to my Instagram, my husband was plowing the street and helping our neighbors move 13 inches of fluffy snow. He is an inspiration to me with his desire to get stuff done, and the right way! While he’s working, I’m having fun. Winter is a great season for me to experiment and design new a new jewelry line.
Turquoise with gold is very elegant.
Here are some photos of my new line. A pristine color combination that is peaceful, cool, and is a reflection of the clear blue sea and warm sparkly sand. I’m drawn to create with the large faceted Chalcedony beads because of their light reflecting quality and translucency.
A unique design demands attention.
A bracelet wrapped around the spires of the castle teapot I designed and built. I named this bracelet Kailani, the Hawaiian name for sea and sky. A unique layered bracelet with stunning large faceted, translucent turquoise Chalcedony beads compliment the earthy Picture Jasper beads. Nature is pretty amazing isn’t it! A pretty and very light weight vintage chain adds strength and a luxe to this sea worthy bracelet. Handcrafted with genuine faceted Citrine gemstones. Hand knotted between each bead section with high quality bead cord for strength. More details on the jewelry design page or at my Etsy shop.
Artists & photographers who love romantic boating scenes inspire me.
Catching the light in a photo or in a painting. Saving a moment in time.

I captured a lot of moments on my IPhone this past summer on the Great Lakes with my family. It was a bit hazy that afternoon in August. I uploaded this stunning wooden boat picture to my Instagram page and used a filter to enhance the colors.
He just needs a wooden boat for the next photo shoot.
Most dog lovers have at least two dogs on board.
This guy was alone and wanted attention.
