Blogging friend Lisa asked for a magnolia inspired necklace for a giveaway on her blog. I love how it came out! Gorgeous!
Custom orders are so fun since they usually have me working with something I have never worked with before. In this case it was purple pearls!
If you would like the opportunity to win this piece, stop by Lisa’s blog here. The drawing will be Monday night April 23. Lisa's blog shows her stunning photographs which I am sure you will enjoy!!!
Jim gave me this beautiful bouquet for my birthday.
Bucket List Item 2
So I crossed off another item! Let me preface this by stating that I am in no way a violent person. I do not even think it is smart to own a gun for protection! However I have always been curious about what it feels like to shoot a gun!
So some friends and I went to the Manchester Firing Range in NH for some shooting fun. Here I am shooting an uzi machine gun! Luckily there were no injuries and everyone had a good time!
This was a romantic moment between Jim and I. He is showing me how to use a 9 mm. There is a particular thumb placement that felt really strange to me.
Luckily there were 3 men in our group, all with experience! Otherwise this may have been a bit challenging for us ladies as far as loading, proper usage of the weapons, etc. We were showed how to use the guns in the lobby but we did not have a professional with our group when we were playing.
Here I am with an MP5 machine gun. When we were being showed how to use the machine guns I was a bit horrified. Surprisingly they were easier to handle than the handguns!
I am happy to check another thing off my list. Just like jumping out of a plane, this is something I do not care to do again!!!!
New End Studio
