It's the little things

I have been wanting shelves in my studio for almost a year now.  It's crazy how fast last year went by.  Buying a house, moving, building a studio, and having two babies makes time fly.  But I now have a couple of shelves and my books aren't taking up counter space anymore, which is fabulous.  It's so funny how little things can make such a big difference.  I recently rearranged my living room and bedroom and the difference is so huge!  It's like a new space entirely (I feel that way at least).  

So I finally made a copy of my wedding ring.  I was really ambivalent about adding the design to my shop for a long time (years....), but I finally took the plunge and I'm happy about.  It's so gorgeous (IMHO) and decadent (so much gold!) that I think it deserves to be shared, rather than hoarded for myself.  And besides that, most of my sentimentalness (new word) has had time to wear off a bit.  I still love my ring, but it doesn't bother me to know that there will be other women wearing the same thing.  I just hope they love it as much as I do. :-)

(I'm hard to photograph!)

And did you happen to be cruising for adorable baby pictures?  Let me help you out:

Your wedding ring is gorgeous! I often consider having mine re-made into a singular ring instead of a set.

And the cutest babies!! They look very happy. My husband is a twin, and I've heard stories of what a handful they are. I bet you guys are doing great though!

Hi Catherine!

Thank you! I'm still pretty satisfied with it, which is good because I get bored of jewelry easily. I think I might make myself a band here pretty soon though. :-)

They keep us pretty busy, but it's gotten SO MUCH easier in the last month or so. As soon as they could sit up and start eating solids it was like night and day. I'm looking forward to/dreading when they start moving around.

Your wedding ring is beautiful. My ring is in white gold, and I've been wanting to change it to yellow gold for my 10th anniversary. Also, I did stop by to see your twins! They are absolutely adorable!

Hi Anna! Thank you! I totally support your desire for yellow gold. I love it so much more than white. It's so cheerful. :-)
