Sharing roses is sharing love.

Spreading love from my garden today feels good.

As I’ve found in an online article titled 5 ways giving is good for you, gifting to others decreases stress in yourself and can even lower blood pressure. Furthermore, giving is inspiring to others and encourages them to “pass it on”. Please feel inspired to share your own garden with your friends, neighbors and even strangers. Here’s to your good health and happiness.

Much love, Jennie

Needle Felting

Stay tuned to see how this little field mouse develops.

Who loves this as much as I do? Sculpting small animals out of wool is very relaxing. Here is the trick. The more you stab the the wool, the more defined and realistic the project becomes.

Making tea.

This tea is for myself, and I cannot recommend it to you, the reader.
Please do your own research when foraging and trying nature’s recipes.
Happy spring! God bless you.

I’m back! Gratitude…

Why was I gone?  If I cut through the bull@#$%, the honest story, without the spin, is that I dislike (intensely) the process of running a business.  Yikes!, what is up with all the paperwork?   I even lost site of the fun of creating.  My shop on Etsy has been inactive.  Again, the process is daunting.  Don’t worry, this story has a positive ending. I’m going to put in the effort again and again and again because I promised myself I would not give up on my dreams.

I am grateful to have my own business where I am empowered. I am the boss and owner.  In this realm, I am powerful and I can create a positive environment.  The control is in my hands. Love it or leave it guys. I am choosing to love it.

Since the holidays, I have been working with needle felting and it is an incredibly therapeutic craft. I hope to incorporate it into my jewelry soon and show you my pieces.

What am I grateful for today. Snow days. Time for me and my kids to stay in and do just what we want.

Something cute for a farmers market

I’m playing around with new items for a farmers market.  What do you think of this cute vase.  This is truly a three in one gift.  Treat yourself or a loved one.  Flowers, a message of love, and even a wearable ring make this an awesome offering.  Leave feedback if you think it’s unique at castawayrosestudio@gmail.com

This was so much fun to make this weekend.

This cute bookmark will be available on ETSY soon.  Copper colored wire, genuine rose quartz and an amethyst “tag” complete the piece.

Are you a rescue group in need of something cute for a fundraiser.  I would love to make a donation! Let me know by sending me a message to castawayrosestudio@gmail.com.IMG_0384_LI.jpg

My Inspiration

This beach is where I spent my childhood summer days day dreaming and soaking up rays.  The beach is so relaxing and the shells are so beautiful.  cropped-img_0361.jpgI source many of my shells for jewelry from the Connecticut coast.
