My Husband is the Biggest Fan of my Guitar Pick Bracelet

Have you every loved something so much and wanted to share it with someone and they could care less about what it is that has your world rockin'?  Well I have and it's no fun, but that's not the case with my husband!  He's probably one of the most supportive husband's in the world when it comes to anything I have my heart set on, including my creations of my guitar pick bracelet. 
My husband will come home at the end of a hard day at work, sit down at his normal comfy spot on the couch, open his laptop and pull up my websites to see if anything sold that day.  It's adorable, really, I can hardly keep from smiling.  I just love when his eyes light up and he says, "Hey, did you see that you sold your black cross hologram guitar pick necklace today?"  Lately it's been his passion to see my black cross guitar pick bracelet sell.  He couldn't be more proud!  It's because I made him my model, I put a black guitar pick bracelet on his wrist and took a picture and used the picture to post on my website.  He is so very proud of his gorgeous wrist being in one of my pictures!   In fact, he's so proud that he breaks out his Blackberry phone at Church in our Coffee shop, where we hang out with our friends, and he shows them the picture of him wearing my guitar pick bracelet.  He quickly adds, "That's *My* wrist there in that picture!"  It's everything I can do to keep from busting out in laughter! 
My husband cracks me up because he knows everything about my guitar pick bracelets!  He could make one from start to finish and I had no idea he could do that until he proudly informed me that he had taken apart the knot in his guitar pick bracelet because he decided that he thought it should be a little tighter than it was.  "O.k. smarty pants!",  I told him.  I guess he's been paying closer attention that I even noticed as I sit and create a guitar pick bracelet.  I guess he has the perfect view of what I'm doing, because he sits right across from me at an angle.  He sits there and throws out his ideas saying, "Hey, I think you should make an emerald green guitar pick bracelet with a Celtic cross on it!"  So I do, and sure enough it sells!  Actually I didn't sell it, but my husband did, by showing his guitar pick bracelet to a guy at our Church who's a close friend....too cute!
I don't know who gets more excited when I sell a guitar pick bracelet or guitar pick necklace off of my site!  Sometimes in the middle of the day I'll get a phone call from my husband, and all he wants to tell me is that I just sold a guitar pick bracelet one hour ago!  I chuckle to myself and think, "How blessed I am to have a husband who loves me enough to take such an interest in what I'm doing!"

My Passion for Creating Guitar Pick Jewelry

I've been creating jewelry for over 6 years now. I must say there have been many changes in the way I create my jewelry, every so slight sometimes, but never the less it's all a learning process.
I've recently become focused on guitar pick jewelry because I enjoy music and I love spreading that joy onto others through my guitar pick jewelry creations! I hope that each piece of guitar pick jewelry that I make will touch that person's life in some way.
I recently acquired some really gorgeous colors of picks that I've been using to create my guitar pick jewelry with. One of my favorite colors is the turquoise, but the purple, hot pink, emerald green and gunmetal black are all beautiful to use in my guitar pick jewelry creations!
I love making all kinds of guitar pick jewelry, such as guitar pick earrings, guitar pick necklaces, guitar pick bookmarks, guitar pick key chains, and last but certainly not least, my newest creation, adjustable guitar pick bracelets! They've become quite a hit! My husband says it's because he modeled the guitar pick bracelet for a picture I use in my GuitarPicks4U shop online! I have to laugh because every time I sell one of those guitar pick bracelets my husband's face lights up and he chuckles, it's really quite amusing!
I hope that my passion for creating guitar pick jewelry will supply a way for me to bless others as well as bless my husband through the extra income that it will bring into our home. My husband works so hard and sometimes I feel like I don't contribute very much, but through the creations of my guitar pick jewelry I hope to be able to take some of that burden off of my husband.
I hope you will all come and visit my two shops: GuitarPicksJewelry4U as well as ChristiainJewelry4U, they both have a lot of different choices for gifts and I've tried to keep my prices reasonable enough for anyone to afford. I hope you come visit me sometime!

Abby Sunderland is One Brave Girl

Can you imagine letting your child drive to the next state at the age of 16 years old? There is no way that most parents would allow that, but this brave girl ventured out to sail around the world! I have to give her props for having the guts to set out on such an incredible journey. I can't imagine what her parents must have felt the day they saw her sailing away out into the vastness of the ocean.

Most teenagers have a sense of adventure, but Abby Sunderland is one brave girl. Imagine having the courage to leave your family behind as your turn your attention to the great unknown adventure that awaits you. I have to say that it does sound tempting, but just the fear of the things that could possible happen I would think would deter most teens that age, and if we're being totally honest, I believe it would deter almost anyone, but this brave girls decided to take the chance of a life time.

I can't imagine the fear in the parents hearts when they heard that their little girl was stranded in the middle of the ocean! I have a feeling that their faith in God must have kicked into high gear at that point, I know that I stopped and prayed the moment I heard that this young brave girl was lost in the huge ominous ocean.

I thank God that this young lady was able to be rescued and was not lost in what could have been a terrible tragedy; I hate to think how this situation could have ended.

My New Guitar Pick Necklace Shop Is Open for Business

I've finally made the plunge! I had been contemplating opening a new shop for many years now, I decided that it would be a good business move because it seems that the guitar pick necklace seems to be the most popular item in my jewelry store online. I decided that most people who would prefer a guitar pick necklace would rather have an all guitar pick necklace shop as opposed to having to shuffle through all the other jewelry I have listed in my CharsBeads4U shop. That's when the idea of opening my new shop, which I named GuitarPicks4U. I figured that guys would be more likely to purchase a guitar pick necklace from a site that only sells guitar pick necklaces and not women's jewelry. The thing is...a guitar pick necklace can be worn by either females or males.
My customers range from teenagers to seasoned musicians. Some people like to purchase a guitar pick necklace because they want to take it with them to a Concert. It makes a great gift to throw on stage. I've been to many concerts where the musician will throw out a guitar pick or a drum stick at end of the night...and I think that a guitar pick necklace would be a great it item to toss out into the crowd at the end of the night...much more useful that a drum stick or just a guitar pick!
I love music and I put my heart into making the guitar pick necklaces that I display in my GuitarPicks4U store. I hope you'll come by and visit me some time!

Wordless Bible Bookmark

My husband came up with the wonderful idea of a wordless Bible bookmark. I decided to buy some crystal beads and make a wordless Bible bookmark and ask some people what they thought of it. Everyone I've shown them to love them. Most people know the story of the wordless Bible: Gold represents heaven, where we long to be some day with Jesus...Black represents our sins that keep us separated from God...Red represents the Blood that Jesus shed for us upon the cross where he died for our sins...White represents how we are white as snow before God because of what Jesus did for us, he paid our debt in full....Green represents the new Life or growth in Jesus Christ.
The wordless Bible bookmark is an excellent way to remember the story of the Good News. I think the wordless Bible bookmark would make an excellent gift for a new believer or a fellow Christian! It would be a wonderful way to share the Gospel too, and you could give it to the person you share the Gospel with, as a momento of them coming to the Lord.
I love the wordless Bible bookmark because of what it stands for, because it holds the story of the Gospel!
You could find this wordless bible bookmark at along with many other amazing creations.
