omg, how neat!!! such a great story behind the necklace. i love it.

after having my daughter i began to see life differently. every choice we make has a ripple effect not only on our future self, but so many others. on example is: how i raise my children, it not only affect "us" but how they treat others as they grow.

My grandparents significantly created ripples in my life. They were an inspiring example of a good work ethic, honest character and unconditional love. I aspire to leave the same ripples in lives around me.

These are great necklaces and a terrific story! Although I've cherished every day of my three son's lives, having my youngest go through open heart surgery at 14 months definitely created a ripple in my life. I do not take anything that he does or says for granted and am in awe that a year later he is stronger and healthier than ever before. His illness definitely taught me to slow down, relax and enjoy the "now moments" in our lives.

I LOVE this :-) I'd put "can't means won't" in honor of my own mom's shortened version of Henry Ford's "whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right!" My lifetime motto I hope to pass to my own kids :-)

My Mum is also a rock collector. She likes rocks that have patterns and she looks for pictures or stories in the rocks. She has passed that love of nature onto me, however I actually like to collect little pebbles that remind me of a special event in my life. I love your Mum's collection - that's really special.

This is so cool! That rock collection of your mom's must be amazing!
Ripples in my life - my kids:) Kids are amazing and difficult, so very worth every struggle.
Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I posted about your giveaway on facebook!

I'm a rock collector, too, with rocks from places I've been. I always look for heart-shaped rocks and often find them! What are the rocks I've dropped in the pond? 1. I took a chance six years ago because I knew how to teach and began teaching rubber stamp classes. 2. I took early retirement and that has made a huge difference in my life and that of my parents. 3. I've been blogging for awhile and sharing my art that way, too. 4. Since my breast cancer diagnosis last summer, I've looked at my treatment days as Spa Days and have kept a positive attitude, blogging about my experiences and creating art that has helped in my journey. We never know who we will touch by what we do, who we are, what we share. Anne, yourmainestamper

This story of your mother just touched my heart! I never thought of collecting rocks from the places I've been, but it's definitely a keeper!

As for ripples - I can't say that there are many coming from me just yet, but there have been many wonderful people that have passed along thoughts, ideas and encouragement - my mentor especially. She does my heart a lot of good!

My teaching mentor has created ripples in my life this year. She really challenged me to see children and learning in a new way. Her phrase "It's not that you can't, it's that you simply haven't learned how to yet," really sticks with me.

the birth of my first child, my son, last year probably created the biggest ripple of my life to date. what an amazing process it is, becoming a parent, and learning at each stage how to become a better parent/person. being a mom has given me a new confidence in myself, that i hope to pass on to my children.

p.s. LOVE these necklaces! :)


I collect sand/gravel from every place I've visited and keep them in little spice jars. I've always thought it was a nice, inexpensive souvenir!

The ripples in my life are the people who inspire me, and I try to inspire others and make my own ripples. This is most obvious in my running - I am inspired by people who are faster than me and accomplish more, while I try to get faster and better thereby inspiring others and so on...

My mom and dad have created ripples in my life and continue to do so every single day. They have inspired me so much... Helped me in every possible way imaginable. They have always been there through me through thick and thin. Helped me to be the stong, independent person that I am today. My mother is my best friend. I admire both my mom and dad more than anyone. :)

My wife has touched my life in so many positive ways. She inspires me all the time to be a better person and she is my best friend.

My bride has changed my life as well. I feel blessed from above everyday that she has chosen me to be her husband and I love her more as time goes on. I hope that I can win this for her because your jewelry is her favorite.
