SILLY SATURDAY - a couple of days late

The winner of the giveaway by CKSilver is---
Nancy of

The 2.99 Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.

'Sounds good,' my wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs.'

'Then, I'll have to charge you $3.49 because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' my wife asked incredulously.

'YES!' stated the waitress.

'I'll take the special then,' my wife said..

'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.

'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied.

She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.

WE'VE been around the block more than once!

I am thrilled to be featuring Cindy of CKSilver - a fantastic jewelry artisan.

I am going to get right to the GIVEAWAY BRACELET - This is a $49 value.
 The first picture is one of my favorites. Walking through the woods is such a wonderful way to be close to God.  This is what they remind me of.

Allow me to introduce Cindy!
 My name is Cindy, and I am a jewelry designer specializing in sterling silver, genuine gemstones, freshwater pearls, and swarovski crystal. I love what I do, and am constantly fascinated with new ways that I can reflect the beauty of creation all around me.
 God has blessed my husband and I with two wonderful biological children, and now we have the opportunity to do foster care. I also have my own marketing business and play the piano, both of which I enjoy immensely and they give me another outlet for my creativity.

My faith is very important to me. I grew up in a Christian home, and put my faith in Christ at a very early age. And although I believed in Jesus, it wasn't until more recently that God has really grown my faith.
I used to think that I just had to try harder to have more faith, and that if I worked hard enough at it I would have success. I remember being at a worship service with some friends and feeling like I was on the outside looking in at something they had that I didn't. So I began to seek God more earnestly in my life, and kept telling Him that more than anything in my life I wanted to know Him more intimately. I am still learning and growing, and God is teaching me a lot.
One of my favorite Bible verses has become:

"Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." I want to keep asking Him to show me more of Himself, and to help me love Him more all the time, and to keep growing my faith.
Jeremiah 33:3
 I have all birthstones available, and am happy to do custom orders as well.
