Faith Melody Memories – My “Ah Hah” Moment – Why I Do What I Do

So, I’ve decided I don’t feel like getting the work I need to do done tonight. Just one of those nights. I’ve been taking some pics of my jewelry to update my Etsy shop with and was thinking about why I make jewelry. As I was taking some pictures, I tried on a couple pairs of earrings (one was a pair of freshwater pearls like you have Jen Anderson).  When I tried them on I went over Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 3 – In Honor

Today’s Capture Your Grief topic is In Honor.  I do so much in honor of Faith.  However, one of the main things I have done and do to honor her is my business, Faith Melody Memories.  I create each piece of jewelry myself with love in her honor.  I started making jewelry as a hobby after she went to Heaven this past April.  I decided it would be a great way to keep her memory alive to Read More

Faith Melody Memories – Seeking Bloggers

After Faith went to Heaven, I started creating jewelry as a hobby.  I created some pieces that her hand and foot prints in her honor so I can wear them.  I decided I wanted to create these types of items for others.  I recently decided I also want to add my other creations to my shop, as I started making jewelry in Faith’s honor.  Truly, each piece I create is special to me and is made with Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 26 – Healing Ritual

Healing Ritual is today’s Capture Your Grief prompt. It seems that I have actually started or gotten back into doing quite a few things that are “healing” for me since Faith died.  Of the handful of these things, this evening I’ll be focusing on making jewelry and beading. I have really been enjoying creating new jewelry pieces with beads and wire lately.  It is very relaxing for me and lets me use my creativity for something different.  Also, most Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 9 – In Memory

In Memory is today’s Capture Your Grief  prompt.  There are so many things that I have and have done in Faith’s memory since she went to Heaven.  Since I don’t have time to discuss them all, nor do you want to hear about each one, I’ll focus on a few of them. I’ve started this blog in honor of Faith in hopes of helping myself as well as others going through similar grief.  It has helped me a Read More

Faith’s Heartbeat Bracelet – Priceless

I created this beautiful pink bracelet by adding a printout of Faith’s heartbeat.  Her heartbeat here is shown at 146 bpm and it is so beautiful to me. The longer I am here the more I realize how precious life truly is and that we MUST cherish the time we are given.  I am so thankful that we have the ultrasound with this picture of Faith’s heartbeat.   I know that as I keep creating, each piece Read More

I am proud to announce that I have created my prototype (a bracelet for me) of one customized bracelet like what I will have for sale (made to order) in my new Etsy store soon.  I am thrilled about being able to create this type of momento for people.  Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.  I hope to have another one done soon, but I am brainstorming how I want to do the second one… The Read More

I am currently working to get my office (Faith’s room) in order so that I can get to work on momentos.  I have been brainstorming and coming up with other ideas that I am adding to my list.  I am getting very excited to show you! Along with momentos for people who have lost a child(ren), I am working on some ideas for momentos of other family members that have gone to Heaven as well… I should Read More
