I love my crystals!

Hi Everyone
I hope you are all safe and having a creative week.
I am about to start painting but thought you may like to see what else I dabble in.
At our True Blue Conference we have a champagne shopping night where we sell our wares. I started beaded a while back because i love my crystals and the metaphysical properties of them and decided to make something that I could have with me if I wasn't wearing my chip bracelets. As you can see here, I love my crystal bracelets...

Hence, i made some crystal bookmarks. These ones have crystal chips that correspond to each of the chakras . They come with an explanation of each crystal and what they are used for.
Here are some brooches I have made using crystals and charms. I have a lot of friends who like angels and together with a wide choice of crystals you can have a different colour to wear with each scarf. Here in Melbourne I wear a knitted scarf everyday and these are a cute addition. 
For our painting group I also made a few with silver charms on them. I found these nice paint palettes on line and thought it might be a nice touch for artistic types like us.
I also painted some angel brooches. I love angels and the serenity they convey. My friends husband kindly cut out these brooches and I painted them in Jo Sonja colours and painted Opal Dust on them to make them shine.

Well off to paint. It is raining cats and dogs outside, the wet washing is sitting waiting to go in the dryer  and my house looks like a laundry with the rest of the wet washing hanging on the clothes horse. I have said it before and I will say it again, I am grateful for the rain that will hopefully fill out depleted dams but gee am I ready for some sunshine and warmth.

Now where is that chocolate biscuit that is my habitual rainy day comfort food and a hot cup of coffee, but before I go


Quote for today comes from Sonia Choquette from her book Your Heart's Desire.

"The greatest miracle in creating your Heart's Desire is that you will discover your own magnificence. Like a lantern, you will shine out in our dark world.  Your creation will be your reward. The realisation of your true self will be your gift to the world...
Laugh, Play, Create."

Are you all being true to your own creative self today? Are you making time to Laugh, Play and Create?

I love crystals too for all the same reason. Your crystal bookmarks are lovely, Lee.

We're getting a little rain up here today...not sure if it's going to hang around though. Like you, after two to three days of rain, I'm usually over it and praying for sunshine ~ :)

You are a woman of many talents Lee. Love your crystal creations and your angels.
I made time today to laugh, play and create... but I do everyday [giggle].
Have a great weekend. Hope the rain goes away.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne
