It's that time of year again, where we openly display all that we are thankful for. I am grateful every day for the life I live. Here is a little list of thanks....
I am thankful for my health, strength, and intelligence
I am thankful for my family, near and far
I am thankful that my brother is coming home from Iraq soon!
I am thankful that I got to spend 23 years with my father
I am thankful to my friends, near and far, who have seen me through thick and thin
I am thankful to my wonderful partner who loves me no matter what
I am thankful to the people I work for and their children for giving me love and laughter
I am thankful for my "babies", Sammy and Amber
And I am thankful for all of my wonderful readers and customers who make my dreams come true every day!
Hello, readers! I am so sorry for my absence of late. Time has run away with me and left me with little to spare in the last few weeks. I have recently been very inspired by a blog called Rowdy Kittens and am in the process of streamlining my life and belongings. I started with purging old cards and pictures, some furniture, clothing, and am now moving onto books. I have many books, due to a long book-buying phase, and yet, I never read a book twice. I am ready to get rid of (most) of my books now, and clear some space in my life.
All books listed below are $9 (including shipping in the U.S. only). All are used, but in great condition. If you are interested, email me at chandler.catherine (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll send you an invoice via PayPal. I will keep this open for two weeks, until December 8, before giving them to goodwill.

This is a necklace that I made for the EtsyMetal Project Runway Challenge for Season 6 Episode 10, "Pick a Place!". It is inspired by Australia, with the modern aesthetic of so many designers there, as well as my deep love for the very odd plants in all shapes and sizes. The empty spaces in the large links represent silhouettes of seed pods and fruits from the rainforest.
Moonstone Charm Necklace
I created this necklace as part of the EtsyMetal Project Runway challenges. This one is for the Season 6, episode 11 challenge "Create a Companion Look". While the companion was not for one of the challenges, this goes perfectly with the necklace I made for my friend, Saskia Moes.
