Back to normal?

I'm using Lorelei's giveaway bracelet which features one of my zinnia connectors as my push to get back into blogging again. She combined a patina glazed connector with some pretty wood beads and a lovely little ceramic leaf from Erin at Every Heart Crafts. I love how her bracelets with the connectors have turned out (apparently other people agree, she's been selling them as soon as she posts them on Etsy!).
So head on over and check out her blog for your chance to win! (I'll admit I threw my name in the hat as well-I couldn't resist!)

On a side note, thank you to all who stopped by to offer support, sympathy or a word of encouragement since my last post. I appreciate it, truly. The reality of this loss has not fully hit me so I anticipate that it will be a challenging few months...year...longer? And, on my soapbox regarding an unglamorous topic for a moment: if you're over 50 or have a family history of colon cancer, schedule your colonoscopy NOW!


  1. Hi Mellisa,
    Thank you for blogging about my giveaway. Couldn't have done it without you!
    And, I too, am so sorry for your loss.
    May God help you through this tough time.

  2. mellisa, first off let me say how sorry i am for your loss. i recently had 2 friends going thru colon resections , 1 for cancer and 1 for crohn's. it's terrible as you know.
    i fell in love with your stuff via lorelei's work, (she's so awesome!)
    i love your botantical series and hope to purchase some soon. keep on going , everyday is a little better... and keep on creating!

  3. I am sorry for your loss Melissa. My mom has been free from that cancer for nine years now. It was a happier ending than what you are going through, but scarey and sad just the same. I preach getting that exam every chance I get to everyone I know.

  4. Mellisa, So sorry to hear of your loss. You are in my thoughts. On a lighter note, I was lucky enough to win Lorelei's bracelet with your gorgeous flower connector! I'm really excited because I really wanted it. I am so happy to have something with one of your pieces! I'm proud to have one of my pieces next to yours! Plus, Lorelei made it! So, this bracelet is very special to me. Thank you for donating your lovely work for the giveaway! I will cherish it.
    Love and Light to you.

  5. Thank you so much for your positive thoughts everyone!

    Erin, congrats on your win, I hope you love wearing it!
