Surprise gift



Do you remember a few months ago when I showed you the jewelry my daughter Laura has been making? Well, now there is someone else in the family that's decided she likes making jewelry.
Last week, my doorbell rang and my sister Cheri's son Nick, and daughter Arianna were at the door. Nick had picked beans and brought over a big bowl of them. Arianna, who is 12 said she had something for me too and gave me the earrings you see above.
She made them at an art camp! I was really impressed. I think they turned out great and it was so nice of her to surprise me like that! (The beans were good too!)
I think she has a future in this, don't you?

The earrings are beautiful....but what is more beautiful is the heart of that 12 year....to give away her creation is a real act of generosity......

I know you will enjoy wearing them.....
