This goodie of a holiday craft comes from my mother-in-law.  Gifts of sand, beach glass, and shells from her beach in these simple glass ornaments.  Beautiful, thoughtful treasure that evoke memories of summer days playing in the sand and listening to the waves.

Coming to you from 10,000 feet in the air and behind tear filled eyes as I still cannot fathom last week's tragedy.

Maybe you have seen this facebook post, maybe you haven't but well said Matthew Nicholas.

Hey kids. You. The Ones that left us today. The ones who experienced the worst that humanity can do. You little angels who closed your eyes in a living Hell this morning. I'm so, so very sorry that this world didn't give you a chance.

I'm a nobody guy from a small town in Michigan. You would've never known me. 
But in all of this overwhelming sadness of today, I just want to let you all know that you matter. Even though you didn't even have a chance to realize how big the world is, today, the sad end of your lives affected MILLIONS of people. It's probably little comfort for you at all, but tonight in America, in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, Australia....everywhere.... mommies are holding their kids a little tighter and a little longer. Daddies are listening to their kids and showing them more love. 
Your twenty little souls were set free this morning and there is nothing good that could be said about that. But because you left, and the way you were taken, millions of kids still here on Earth tonight will be shown more love than any other ordinary Friday.

Your short and precious lives had a value and a purpose.

I'm sending this sand in an ornament idea to my Mum who will love it - they live on a beach in NZ.( Terrible tragedy, hard to even articulate how awful.)

Keeping your child warm doesn't mean dressing [URL=http://www.thenorthfaceforsale.net/#594]the north face coupons[/URL] like an Eskimo. Assure these are wearing model that [URL=http://www.thenorthfaceforsale.net/#594]the north face coupons[/URL] tend to be relaxed. The type of fabric can also be another factor that needs to find put into great consideration.
