Just thought I would share a quick picture of the necklace that I am wearing today. I made it this weekend!
This weekend was great on so many different levels. Not only did my best friend Meghan plan a fantastic Mexican dinner at her house where I had just enough Margarita’s to slur my words, but my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Ravens to move on to the AFC Championship. Then to top it all off the Patriots’ lost meaning the Steelers would have a home game for the AFC championship. The Millers and half of the Danburg’s (Me) were a very happy bunch this weekend.
Hopefully getting another of these this year!
The other great part of this weekend was church this morning at Watershed. Currently we are week 2 into the highly anticipated Stogies and Stiletto’s series. I thought today’s message was really interesting, what love isn’t. To quote the message today, Love isn’t attraction, dependency or bargaining. Love isn’t remembering the wrongs or rights. What I toke from this message today came mostly from the last phrase, Love isn’t remembering the wrongs or rights. I took that as Love is present. Love isn’t what we were like in the past or what we want to be in the future. Love is right now.
I am guilty of living in the future. I always find myself saying things like “I can’t wait for XYZ” or “won’t it be cool when this happens.” Things are really good in my life right now, definitely the happiest I have ever been, but I am curious as to why I am always looking to the next thing in my life. I think it is time to start living in the present. I have heard other people talk about living in the present and never really understood that statement until recently. I think it is a good mantra to live by. Living in the present.
So be it. Tonight I am relishing in the Steelers’ victory, loving that my hubby is right here beside me, and thinking about all the blessings current in my life right now. It’s a good state of mind to be in!
While sitting at Amelie’s tonight brainstorming fun things for the future our song came on over the music system. Jarrid noticed it right away. It took me a minute to hear it over the coffee being sipped and computer keys pounded by other patrons at the bakery, but when I finally heard it, it warmed me up from head to toe. It’s funny how all of a sudden a song, a picture or a work of art can evoke a feeling, a memory.
I remember when we first heard this song. Jarrid and I had just gotten engaged in Paris. (The whole engagement story is something made from little girls dreams, but it turned out to be my real life dream come true. We can discuss that story at another time) We were on a train to Montpellier in the south of France to visit my sister. Jarrid and I were sitting in two seats on the train across from my parents when my dad leaned over to Jarrid and I, handed us his first edition iPod and said, “Listen to this song, it reminds me of you two.”
“I’ve been searching for such a long time, for someone exactly like you
I’ve been traveling all around the world, waiting for you to come through
Someone like you, makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied
Someone exactly like you…” Van Morrison
Jarrid looked at me with such pride in his eyes. He had 100% approval from my dad and that meant more than you could ever know to him. Sure he had approval from my dad when he asked for my hand in marriage in the middle of the South Park Joseph Beth Book Store (we miss that book store) 2 months prior to proposing. But this was a different level of approval. He believed in what we were doing, the path we were taking our lives and that meant so much to Jarrid. We decided to honor my dad at our July 3rd wedding by dancing our first dance as husband and wife to that song. Great memories!
I guess this is as good a time as any to make my re-enterance back into the blogging world. It’s been a really long time since I wrote on this blog. In fact my last entry was to highlight the engagement pictures we had just taken…now we are married. 6 months to be exact. A lot has changed in my life in the time since I last wrote on this little blog. I’m excited about taking blogging back up. I need to make a commitment and stick with it. So this is me proclaiming my commitment to the blogging world (even if no one ever reads my little blog):
I commit to writing 3 new blog posts a week!!!
Looking forward to the adventure…thanks for reading!
I can’t tell you enough how awesome Laura of Blue Wheel Photography is! Seriously my last couple of blog posts all seem to mention her at some point. Well, its all for good reason, not only is she a great friend but she is super, super talented. This past Saturday Jarrid and I had more (yes more!) engagement pictures taken. We love the pictures that Jayme Trainor took of us in Longview, but we were looking for some pictures that captured some of our greatest memories as a couple. Talk a walk down memory lane with us at Blue Wheel’s Blog, here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what to expect.
Jarrid and I first met in NoDa at the Evening Muse and since then we have been hooked on the arts district of Charlotte. All of the beautiful colors of the leaves and the buildings will help you to understand why! Thanks again Laura! You went well above expectations!
Yup you guessed it we were acting like Lebron!
Fun in Front of the Muse
This was where we first met and 2 months later we went on our first date!
Fun times at the Stadium
Did you know that our first date was on 3/3/08 and now our wedding will be 7/3/10. The number 3 is very lucky to us!
Check out some of the amazing work Laura of Blue Wheel Photography did for me!!! She is amazing!
Thanks so much Laura!
Just thought I would share with you guys some of the great projects that I was working on this weekend. First, on Saturday morning, I was headed to meet with Krissy (I know crazy coincidence) of Three Little Birds Stationary store in Southend about some amazing logo and stationary designs she created for me (more on that to come). But in exchange for the logo work she did I made her a beautiful maroon and crystal necklace. See…
This is the Necklace she chose:
Another, more artistic view:
I gave her two choices though, so this one is still available:
Here’s a close up of the beautiful brooch:
After visiting with Krissy I headed home to work on some very important designs, first was for Candice Lanning of The Beautiful Mess. She won the Designs By Krissy Blog Contest on Alyse Woodwards blog in September. She is just absolutely the sweetest person I have met in a while. She and her husband are so cute and they take the most amazing photographs. Anyways, they are hoping to adopt a baby in the next couple of months so along with the necklace that she won for herself I also created a necklace for her future adopted daughter and the biological mother. I was just so touched by how thoughtful this gesture was. Here are the designs that we came up with:
Here is her necklace (please remember I am not a photographer, as if you needed reminded):
A necklace for the mom:
And a necklace for a little girl:
Here are all three together:
More on the rest of the weekend coming up next!
So happy to let you all know that the wonderfully talented blogger, Morgan from A Cape Cod Bride will be wearing a Designs By Krissy bracelet. Thanks to the wonderful invention of Google Alerts I was able to connect with Morgan when I found the blogpost that she graciously wrote about my jewelry. She then contacted me on my Etsy page about a bracelet that she was interested in wearing for her very own December nuptials, see the bracelet below. I can’t wait to see how her wedding comes together. In the short time that I have been following her blog I always agree with the design choices she highlights and also the Vendors that she loves. Best of luck to your Morgan and thanks so much for your support!

So here I am coming back to my little neglected blog with my theoretical tail between my legs. I am in the midst of a major online presence overhaul and with that comes some long overdue love to my blog. In the next couple of weeks I will be launching a website, so if you have ever been to www.designsbykrissy.com before then you will be able to see more than just a “This website is coming soon” message. My good friend Laura Gainor came over yesterday to take some pictures for my website. She is an awesome photographer and just launched her own photography business called Blue Wheel Photography. You have to check out her site and then book a photo shoot!
In the meantime between the new site launch and all the holiday rush I promise to be better about posting here. If you have any ideas for what you would like me to discuss including new jewelry, wedding plans or life with my fiance, let me know, leave me a comment! Here is a picture of my latest creation:
Bracelet from Krissy Made for Caroline
This is so exciting to report… For the first time EVER I have one of my necklaces featured in a publication. Charlotte Magazine does a monthly “To Die for” style section. This month the fashion focus was on statement necklaces. My necklace, the Leann necklace (named for my mom) is the first necklace featured. A big thanks goes out to Melissa Lamkin who styled the spread. She is awesome!!! So if you get a chance go to your local book store and check out page 28 of the magazine. Also If you happen to like my necklace go to my ETSY page and see if there is anything you would like to own. I also do custom orders upon request. Thanks to everyone for your never ending support!!!!
