Turquoise Bracelet Making!!

Hey everyone!

First of all...


I posted this on facebook as well so make sure to swing by the shop and see if you like anything. This is a great deal. :)

Back to my post... 

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm wrapping the semester for finals for the next 2 weeks but somehow managed to squeeze in a long-time-coming art project. 
 
So I haven't updated on art projects in a while and now here I am talking about my recent obsession with making bracelets. I had so many pendants and beads to work with that this project came pretty naturally. I found some awesome turquoise gemstone beads and it just really took off. Here are some of the products I just listed  recently. Love the fun color combos for the summer!




I realize that these 3 may look similar but it's because I worked with the same small batch of beads. If these bracelets are liked by potential customers, I'd love to branch out and make more with some other semi-precious gemstones. These 3 all incorporate real turquoise beads or clover spacers. I absolutely love the color and it's popular all year round.

Let me know which one is your favorite and what colors you would want a bracelet like this in. Maybe I'll run with your idea-- who knows!

Take care!

Cheers,
Dana

Staying Hydrated

Hello cutiepies!

Hope everyone is having a good start to their week!

Ah... I'm at crunch time wrapping up my semester which means a lot of stress, poor eating habits, and bad sleeping habits to come. In an attempt to minimize all the above, I am going to stay hydrated and happy as possible.



Yep! I noticed I never get to drink enough water during school days so I'm going to try to work something out to keep myself hydrated. I have this crazy Tuesday with a  3 hour lab (10 minute break in between) and a 2.15 hour class right after that. I get basically no time to eat or go to the bathroom.

:\ I'm going to try to at least drink my whole bottle of water throughout that day since it's super unhealthy to not drink any water for that long of a time span. Remember that 8-10 glasses of water a day is average. I aim for 6-8 and give myself a nice pat on the back if I ever surpass that!

This chart made me cringe because I really know how dehydrated I am when I see this sometimes...






I don't think weight loss should ever be a reason to do anything unless it involves making healthy changes in your life and naturally becoming fit. Never replace water for meals or drink more to feel full and therefore eat less. Your body needs food and water separately.




I wanted to make a video about the best times to drink water eventually so I guess here is a preview!



Enjoy my little health rant about how important water is and go drink a glass!

Vineyards and Greenery Photography

Hey cutiepies!

Oh my gosh. I took these photos sometimes last year and never got to watermark and share them. They were taken at the beautiful Crane Creek Vineyard and Vogel State Park of Blairsville, Georgia. I didn't edit these photos at all so the vibrant greens and bright skies are all natural. :) Go on a soothing journey with me.









Hope you all enjoyed your dose of green today with me. Go outside and enjoy 5 minutes of fresh air if you can because you deserve it. :) Take care and I will post soon. <3
