Is so very exciting, because it represents a true labor of love. Just this weekend, my sister-n-law Hillary launched a website (beadhivejewelry.com) where she can sell her jewelry.
I have been wearing bracelets she has created for several years (see my blog photo!)
The funny thing is, I’ve never been much of a jewelry-wearer, but I LOVE my Hillary bracelets (she even designed a special Simple Scrapbooks bracelet — with our signature blues and yellows — a few years ago for our editorial team.) Hillary has found her creative passion and it shows. She has a gift for selecting and putting together colors, textures, sizes etc … and I couldn’t be happier for her. She and my brother Cougar were at my mom’s house for Christmas last year and I got to watch her shop for beads at a little Pike’s Place Market shop in Seattle — which was amazing!
The good news for YOU is that since her website is brand new she is doing a special "free shipping" offer (to anywhere — yes, even Australia) for the holidays. If you have any questions, you can email Hillary through the link under "contact us" and she will respond as soon as possible.
Her latest passion/specialty are the Kazuri bead necklaces (read the story on her site) I have the green one, and seriously it’s the only necklace I even wear.
I’m just so proud of Hillary. She is a busy, busy mom, works part-time helping struggling high-school students get their diplomas and has supported her husband in years and years of school (Cougar is working on his PhD.) She has found, like me that making time for a personal passion is a very healthy thing, that lends you energy and enthusiasm for daily life.
Hillary has a gift, and now you can share it with someone you love.
