Today we celebrate my favorite youngest daughter's second birthday... and as we made our way down the steps we saw... a butterfly? That's what I thought at first, but this was truly the biggest "butterfly" I had ever seen! Look at the size in comparison to the bricks. It's wingspan was four, five, maybe six inches! It's body was thick, yet it's wings were very thin and delicate. Like tissue paper, it seemed, and gently swaying in the very light breeze. And it seemed fearless... it stayed right where it was as I took picture after picture, and stayed still as my now-two-year-old went to reach for it. I think it may be a moth, maybe someone out there in cyberworld can identify it for me? Whatever it was, it sure held our attention!

We continued to the park, where I wanted to take some photos. It's just amazing to me how fast my girls are growing! My older daughter, E, will be six one month from today. And M, my younger daughter is two today. After the park, she picked out mini cupcakes for dessert. As you see, she was crowned a Princess for her birthday. Lucky girls, they have both been crowned Princess by the age of two! Lucky Mama, I have got two amazing girls.

And I have got Soul Energy.

New Listings! What is "Sticky Chinese House" and Why Did I Name a Bracelet That?

So what is "Sticky Chinese House"? It's a pretty annual herb that is pink and purple, much like this bracelet. The base of the petals have dots on the base, as do the painted glass beads of the bracelet. See the full listing here .

Many thanks to Karen Crane, creator of DaughterofDeane on etsy. I recently featured one of her beautiful bracelets in my "Heal Thyself" treasury and she sent me kind words that truly gave me soul energy. She says "Your bracelets are colorful and very pretty and look... fun to wear." and "I'm very impressed... I can feel your energy". While you're on etsy, please take a moment to explore her shop

Magic Markings Art gave me a mention in her blog! I included one of her fantastic paintings in my "Sum sum summertime" treasury, and she in turn included a link on her blog. And now I'm happy to include a link on my fan page. Sometimes, when you find something that makes you feel good, you just want to share it with others!

I'm Feeling Blue... Royally Blue

I truly love curating treasuries on Etsy. A treasury is a collection of items that I pick that represent a theme. Today's theme, as you see, is Royal Blue. And it is simply blue-tiful.
To see the full treasury, click here

You can see my other treasuries by scrolling towards the bottom (of the treasury). You'll see me listed as the curator... from there click on "View soulenergy's other Treasury lists". They're pretty darn awesome!

Earth Collection XXXIV

I love using glass pearls because they allow me to create a beautiful piece of jewelry that is durable and affordable. The focal point of Earth XXXIV are the fantastic fancy glass beads with fleur de lis and gold swirls, surrounded by a light green glass pearls. Sooo pretty!

A Lake in the Middle of the Woods

Sometimes, when I make a bracelet, I have a very specific idea in mind. Quite often, my jewelry follows a pattern. And sometimes they just happen, as this one did. When I first started making bracelets, I named each one. As I made more and more, it became easier to put them into collections. While I still do collections, the last few bracelets I have made have practically named themselves.

This bracelet has named itself A Lake in the Middle of the Woods. The colors of the surrounding beads are natural browns, greens, reds, yellows... everything that you would see as you walk the path between the trees. You've walked for miles, up ahead you see a clearing; out of nowhere, a lake. Calm, blue waters. The energy you feel, being with nature. That's Soul Energy.
