Adirondack Wedding Wish Cards

A New Path

As in anything, life changes direction and is always taking you down a new path. The same thing happens when you go for a hike in the Adirondack Mountains. One place I love is hiking in the Adirondacks, along with another million people or so during the course of the hiking season.

Circa 2009

I recently participated in a bridal show at a wonderful venue put on by Burlap and Beams in Athol, New York.  Getting ready for the show took a lot, seeing I've never participated in any show since the inception of Nellie and Ruth Designs.  I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the 50 or so brides that came through and took the time to stop at my table to see all I have been working on and all I offer at my Etsy shop.

After participating, I have decided to go down a new path in my shop. The bridal path.  I've offered my Bourdoir Blessing Cards, which people seem to love, and have decided to create more for weddings.  Adirondack Wedding Wish Cards are brand new to my shop after receiving such a warm welcome at the show yesterday.

I have to follow my heart and believe I have found my niche` and what is right for me.  I have decided to create an entire line of paper goods for Adirondack Weddings.  I love nature, the soft colors along the hiking trails, the smell of pine, wildflowers, massive roots that grow over giant rocks, and the challenge each path brings. Whether the path is muddy, steep, slippery, or paved, it's a path I choose to take. A path that will lead me right where I need to be.

Robins Eggs

When I purchased these stones I was taken by the color.  I love any shade of blue and brown mixed together.  

After designing and making these wonderful dangle earrings, they reminded me of a Robins Egg being they were a pretty shade of blue with a mixture of brown.

I couldn't think of a better way to display a Robins Nest.

Check out more new earrings at my Etsy Shop. Spring is just around the corner, the Robins are in my yard flying about.  What a wonderful time to purchase a new item for yourself to celebrate spring and all it has to offer.
