Merry Christmas

From this day forward
live in the moment
let the embers of your
soul fire
with passion
and love
for others
the less fortuante
least obvious
with all your
and watch

Wishing you all God's greatest gift this year.  May you give your love freely, and accept it back just the same.  May you share your love with those who need it most and receive the bliss of being loved in return.

Special Holiday Deals

This Holiday I have decided to do a special Holiday Bonus buy for two of my most popular items...

Special edition of my Sentimental Journey Necklace for only $25 (regularly $35)
available in gold or silver with your choice of white pearl, garnet or green amethyst.

 Limited edition version of yummy bath salts called Candy Cane for $4 (regularly $7). 

These items will only be available via my blog and will  only be good for  a limited time.  Quantites are limited and once these special goodies are gone, they won't be back.  So get one (or two) for holiday gift giving and share the word with your friends.  I would appreciate it!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This Morning, Outside My Window

The metaphor was plain to see... the rainbow shines so brightly through the forest.  It spoke volumes to my soul, saying that the journey will be worth it... the struggles to become my truest self are ending as I can see the beauty of glorious light through the thorny branches.

Today was the most glorious morning.  One that I will soon not forget.

Winner #1 in my Gift Card Giveaway

Excited.  Happy.  Grateful.  Blessed.  These are the four words that I can use to describe myself as I am getting ready to announce our first winner in the Gift Card Giveaway Contest.  I was overwhelmed by your generosity and kind words....a big huge thank you and big hugs to all of  you! 

In doing this giveaway contest, I wasn't sure how it would go.  You know, promotions can either go well or just not go at all.   But this has been my most successful to date and it's all because of you!

 This person's name was picked randomly out of a little wicker basket (that looks a bit like it belongs in the wizard of Oz, slung over Dorothy's arm) after my kids and I made up little pieces of paper with everyone's name on them....very scientifc, I know.  But this was the fairest way we could find and it kept them engaged and excited to see who was going to win!

So, without any further suspense, our first winner is..........
Holly H 

I will be contacting you via convo/email to let you know how to redeem your gift card.

Didn't win?  That's ok, the fun isn't over yet!  There are still 3 more gift cards and 2 deluxe sample sets to give away, so stay tuned to see if you have won!  More names will be picked over the next wweek or so (see my first post for the dates).

The above picture was taken on our latest adventure.  What struck me was the last name of the person ...arcangel.  There was no way to miss the message.

Getting Ready For Fall

~* Just a quick peek at some items that are going to be listed very soon at Kasia Blue *~

New trinkets all around

All coming soon to Kasia Blue just for you!

As you know, I love the color blue, so I would be remiss if I didn't include some blue pieces in my Fall Collection.  This year I am trending towards some stronger colors and more wrapped and hand forged pieces(so new and exciting for me!).  There is more to come for sure in the days ahead...some nature inspired foliage pieces and Fall colors just for a little tease.  So, stay tuned and see what's new!

A Beautiful Anomaly

A gorgeous ruffled Gladiola from my garden.  This beauty stopped me in my tracks the other day with her ruffled edges, beautiful coloring and "not a plain jane" good looks.

A weekend of nothing to do

~*:: From my overgrown and neglected garden ::*~

This weekend was one of relaxation and repose...well, ok, it was pretty filled up with "stuff", but it was restful in the scheme of things.   We had a chance to go to our County Fair and then to the Lewiston Arts Festival (to scope out prospects of shows to do next year).   And, beyond getting caught in a downpour, which we sauntered through without so much as a flinch of desperate cover, this weekend was just what I needed.

The beginning of one chapter requires that the story line take a deep breath, then travel on to make you enamoured once more.

Live life like you are turning the page to begin a new adventure.

My Favorite Tea Cup

My Favorite Tea Cup
Used for many Purposes
Mostly for Pictures
A Beautiful Earring Hanger
Now Broken
Cream & Gold Porcelain
I should have saved it
It still would have taken good pictures

But all broken things either need to be fixed
or disposed of
There is no in between
Because what has been shattered
will never come back 
the same way again
There will always be a shard missing
Unseen by the naked eye
Displaced in the force of breaking
That will weaken
Even the most tightly held mending

From the shattering
we are broken open
fragments and pieces
of a beautiful soul

The Heart of the Matter

Heart Shaped Rose Petals taken from a rose that was planted for me with love by the man that has proven himself beyond worthy.  A beautiful symbol to remind us that the seeds we sow in love will bloom with the most beautiful flower.

A New Direction

~*:: Chocolate & Raspberries, $189 at Kasia Blue ::*~

Some say that life cycles in sevens.  Every seven years your cells have fully regnerated and the human body is completely brand new.  Seven is a spiritual number, that is true, yet in the cycles of seven it is five that seems to have my life defined.  Case in point: in the year 2000 I had my first child and started a new job.  Five years later, things changed again with moves, meeting new groups of people, job changes.  Now, again, five years down the road, things are about to take me on a new journey.  I have switched jobs (really, seriously, nearly 5 years to the date).  I will no longer be directing the Handbell Group that I have been with for 5 years.  There is more, of course, but I must keep some things close to my heart.  Suddenly it feels as if so much has fallen away, that burdens have been lifted and doors opened so that I can fill my coffers with new and exciting escapades.  I feel the breeze....and it feels so good.

All that said, my creative side is making a change as well.  My designs are evolving into something more intricate and one of a kind.  Bejeweled, curved and complex (much like me...snicker).  No longer is cookie cutter appealing to me, although my current dedsigns that are simpler can, and will stay in the lineup, you will now be seeing the addition of these more decadent beauties.  Also, with my Body Luxe line, I too will be ramping it up, so to speak, with layered and thoughtful fragrances that speak to your body, mind and spirit.  I have discovered that "one note" is just not me.  That's good, because I have been stuggling to be myself yet trying to please the masses.  And although that may be my business side talking, I still need to find room for the the unique and unusal.  Without that, I will not evolve...or be happy.

Change is good.
