***Happy Christmas***

Hi all, just a quick post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a joyous and safe New Year. 
Also, just a quick favor, my Mom is finally scheduled for her spinal surgery on Tuesday, December 28th. Please say a prayer for her safe passage through surgery and recovery. They have to take a bone graft from her hip to put into her spine, so she will have to be out of work for 3 months to recover. Hopefully I can go and be with her at least on the day of her surgery, hubby is trying to take some time off from work, but we're not sure yet if that will happen.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and well wishes, I know without a doubt it will help!!
On another note, I finally finished the kids Christmas shopping, oh, I mean Santa has! :) It was a bit more difficult this year due to all of the non-stop rain we're having here in So. Cal. Rain and the Target parking lot just does not mix well. Throw in Christmas time, and it's a disaster zone!!

New designs.

"Royal Initial" pendants.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!


  1. Oh Melinda, we will be thinking of her and you.
    She will be fine don't stress it only makes her more nervous.
    Today is our Christmas and we were up a 5am with Brooklyn he was so excited. It has just been a perfect morning with the rain falling and the super gray sky. Really feels like old fashion christmas.
    Okay, I don't do religious stuff but that last necklace is beautiful!!!!
    I was really hoping that Rudy would surprise me with one of your pieces for xmas, but alas the hint was not enough. Keeping my fingers crossed for my bday or valentines day.
    Merry Christmas!!
    I am heading back to the living room with the fam.

  12. Hi Melinda! Yes, Roger's Gardens is awesome! Thanks for commenting. I will pray for your Mom, in fact I already have but I'll continue. My first Husband's Mom had a sort of similar surgery where she had bone taken from her hip and put in her neck. She recovered quickly and hasn't had any problems since and that was probably 15 years ago. Surgeries have come a long way so I'm sure she's in good hands - not to make too much light of it but just giving encouragement.
    Have a Merry CHRISTmas and New Year full of blessings and family,

  13. Merry Christmas to you Melinda and your family, have a lovely day xx Sandi

  14. Merry Christmas to you! I hope your mother is doing okay with her surgery.
