Spring has sprung! Finally! I'm excited for the warmer days, getting my flower pots out and plant some colors outside, clean the deck and put the patio furniture out and start grilling again.
Plus going to some summer shows with my NotesNBling Jewelry. Although outdoors isn't the ideal setup for my displays, those shows are a lot of fun. So always hoping for decent weather and no storms for all of us vendors and those coming out to the shows.

Here are a few NEW designs I'm working on. The first two are a combo of genuine pearls, stones and a chunky leather knot with big lobster clasps. Then some new anklets with a double wrap leather and stones. Then a few of my "curves" earrings all packaged up with the Psalm 23:4 verse on a card you can keep and use as a bookmark.
Those and much, much more will be at my upcoming shows and you'll never know what new things I'll have on my table as I play around with new designs and techniques.
I had a great time playing/singing at the Country Manor Campus on Thursday, April 21. I'm learning to play some hymns better and better and with their help of singing along, it made this so amazing and fun. It's just beautiful when you invite the Holy Spirit to minister and the Lord Jesus to touch hearts. Had many sweet conversations afterwards and I'm looking forward to my next time with the folks there. They really are so cool and they just love to sing along and what's even more cool is that they are learning MY original songs as well!
Sadly music is now much less in my life than it used to be, thanks to the craziness of the last two years. Yet, the Lord has opened other doors for me to be creative and music will always be part of my life, just not to the scale and touring it used to be.
I'm always excited to see how the Lord has been using me in different ways in people's lives and that's all that matters. We need Jesus and need Him desperately. As times grow more evil in this world, the only hope and salvation we have is through Christ.
If you think about it....the thieves who were hung next to Christ on the crosses, they deserved the punishment. Christ however did not, yet He took OUR punishment on HIMSELF so that we'd be reconciled to the Father, our sins forgiven and have hope of eternal life with Him. ONE thief however said to Jesus: "Remember me when you come into your paradise" and Jesus replied: "This night you will be with me in paradise".
This thief did not go to bible college, seminary school, talked to a priest or a pope, he didn't go to bible study, did group therapy, attended a church, sat under great Christian speakers and had in depth bible teachings, he didn't straighten out and make his life right, he didn't have time for that.
He just simply recognized he was a sinner, he needed forgiveness - he needed Jesus. That simple - we make it sooooo complicated!
If you don't know Jesus - just come - receive His forgiveness and ask Him to save your soul.
So with that thought, I hope to see you all at a show somewhere, especially if you're local to Minnesota. If you're out of state, you never know, I might just get to visit, play music - or attend an art/craft show in your area.
Much love and blessings,

Psalm 100 Scripture
1 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.
