Here’s a lovely new creation I just finished for one of my wonderful customers! She came to me with some very specific ideas for a pair of custom fingerprint earrings, and we came up with this design together! I really am loving these, and I really hope she does as well ;)

Hard work

by Laura

After running across this amazing list of a “sweat pledge”, I am loving this and I felt compelled to share…

1. I believe that I have won the greatest lottery of all time. I am alive. I walk the Earth. I live in America. Above all things, I am grateful.

2. I believe that I am entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Nothing more. I also understand that “happiness” and the “pursuit of happiness” are not the same thing.

3. I believe there is no such thing as a “bad job.” I believe that all jobs are opportunities, and it’s up to me to make the best of them.

4. I do not “follow my passion.” I bring it with me. I believe that any job can be done with passion and enthusiasm.

5. I deplore debt, and do all I can to avoid it. I would rather live in a tent and eat beans than borrow money to pay for a lifestyle I can’t afford.

6. I believe that my safety is my responsibility. I understand that being in “compliance” does not necessarily mean I’m out of danger.

7. I believe the best way to distinguish myself at work is to show up early, stay late, and cheerfully volunteer for every crappy task there is.

8. I believe the most annoying sounds in the world are whining and complaining. I will never make them. If I am unhappy in my work, I will either find a new job, or find a way to be happy.

9. I believe that my education is my responsibility, and absolutely critical to my success. I am resolved to learn as much as I can from whatever source is available to me. I will never stop learning, and understand that library cards are free.

10. I believe that I am a product of my choices – not my circumstances. I will never blame anyone for my shortcomings or the challenges I face. And I will never accept the credit for something I didn’t do.

11. I understand the world is not fair, and I’m OK with that. I do not resent the success of others.

12. I believe that all people are created equal. I also believe that all people make choices. Some choose to be lazy. Some choose to sleep in. I choose to work my butt off.

On my honor, I hereby affirm the above statements to be an accurate summation of my personal worldview. I promise to live by them.

You can find more on what this all means here. I will be printing this out and posting in our hall or in my kids’ rooms. I am determined they will learn hard work and the love of hard work. Feel free to print and post in your own home!
Love you dearly,
Laura.

Father’s Day

by Laura

Father’s Day is fast approaching! If you’re looking for that perfect gift for the man who is just impossible to buy for (which was somehow always my Dad)… consider a fingerprint piece!
Cufflinks
Pick keepsake
Keychain keepsake
Even a coin fingerprint piece to keep in his pocket or sock drawer? Yes! Imagine it, get in contact with me, and we’ll create something unforgettable together!

This will be my first Father’s Day without my Dad here. In a way, I’m not really looking forward to it. I’m sure it will be a day of many memories, tears and laughs.

Here’s me and Dad way back when…

May your Father’s Day be one of building new memories and fondly reminiscing old ones!

(Some pieces may need more time for creation, so I cannot guarantee a pre-day delivery, thanks for understanding!)
