Hope and Miracles


Recently my very dear friend had to undergo a bone marrow transplant after she was diagnosed with a blood cancer in late February. The entire process will take about a year from start to finish. It is impossible to describe how this makes me feel as her friend, but I can’t begin to wrap my head around how she feels. So far she has come through this amazingly well and is on the home stretch now. She is a fierce, brave warrior and SO STRONG! We talk most everyday as she is a few hours away to be close to the hospital where she’s been treated. I miss her like crazy and can’t wait to visit as soon as she’s up for it.

Paula loves to make jewelry with me and it’s just so much fun to hang out in my garage studio with her! We have made some hilarious memories for sure, and some gorgeous jewelry. I’ve been busy creating while she’s been healing and I cannot wait until we’re back in the studio creating…..or at happy hour!!
