Thankful Thursday - 2/17/11

I have been having a really tough couple of weeks. I've been sick with some form of the winter funk, complete with gigantic sinus headache and complete lack of motivation. But I am powering through! Surely soon I will see the light at the end of the tunnel??

In any case, yesterday I received a wonderful little ray of light in my mailbox that brightened up my whole week!! {and brightened up my craft space!}

Meet my Tree of Hope!

Isn't she beautiful??

"This 2" tree is made with Rhodonite chips. The roots are adorned with a blue Swarovski crystal bead (water), Rhodonite(wards off negativity), a silver picture frame (joy), wood bead (earth) and natural mini clothes pins (roots of each Hope)."  - Oceanbelle on Etsy

I absolutely LOVE it! The colors are phenomenal, and the attention to detail breathtaking. You have to go check out her shop, there are so many varieties, you're sure to find something you love.

Brandy, the owner and creator behind Oceanbelle is super sweet and amazingly talented. Like many of us, she's a mom working hard on her business, but she's also a full-time student as well! I don't know how she does it. 

As for me, I am still looking for that perfect spot to hang my little hope tree...

I think it's feeling a little overwhelmed in my work space...

but I'm really liking it hanging from the lamp with the sunshine streaming through it!

So thanks goes out this week to my sweet friend Brandy {Oceanbelle} for brightening up my otherwise blah week! I needed it bad!! :)

Stay tuned for the next few weeks, as she has graciously offered to let me host a giveaway so that one of you can win a beautiful treasure from her shop! More details to come! :)
