Handmade,Etsy,Life, Family, Genealogy and Me.

Some of you have asked about me. What’s Renita really like?
Just a mom? Only a wife? A stay at home mom? A Cherokee? Only another Artist?
Well, I thought I’d take a moment this morning and give just a tiny bit more information about exactly who you are dealing with when you and I are conversing over your special order.
If you look to the 1st photo you’ll see my Uncle Ken and me.  That day, we were searching for tangible genealogical proof. Yes, we are the “searchers for truth”. We are a pair, my uncle and I. As a matter of fact.. each morning we have a debate regarding the world in general… sometimes it gets pretty heated. We battle over presidential candidates and their schemes. We battle over what’s right and wrong. We talk. We think. It’s amazing don’t you think? We still love and respect each other too! He’s a huge part of me that I think you, my clients, should know about. He keeps me grounded most of the time.  AND, we have a blast finding our heritage together. The truth. We will find it even if it’s never been found.
This is my husband Adrian and youngest daughter Isabel..
Adrian and Isabel

Adrian and Isabel

Adrian is a wonderful father and husband and artist. I could go on for days about this man but, I won’t. I would embarrass him to no end. Bella, well.. Bella of course brought us the World of Down Syndrome. I imagine sometimes her up in Heaven talking to God. ” God, send me somewhere interesting will you?” And god saying.. ” well.. whew.. hold on, it’s going to be one heck of a ride.”
And last but not least..Look at this photo below..  Aren’t they the greatest looking kids ever??? If I ever have a moment of ” Good lord will this day never end.. I always think of these “kids” Each one person in this photo is without a doubt going to make a difference on this planet earth. I couldn’t be prouder.

My sarah  is most certainly the next greatest artist. Isabel, well she’s rockin the world with personality right now. Airman 1st Class Travis has taken over the job of “MY hero” and Kelsey, I’ve adopted in. Kelsey, with the great mind and imagination.
These four humans.. whew… Look out world!
So there you have it. My little life. Or at least a small part of it. I have photos I want to show you of my lovely Aunt Debbie. My mother who keeps hanging on no matter what. My friends that are certainly like extended family. I have been blessed with more love in this one lifetime than most ever get. I’m honored to be close to the people I’ve just showed you. And you know what’s funny? MOST of the people in this listing won’t ever see it. They are busy living life to the fullest.
And I wouldn’t want it any other way. That’s why I love them.
Now, I suppose I SHOULD get back to work. YOU might be waiting on your order…
I’m going….
Me and Isabel.. It seems SO long ago...

Me and Isabel.. It seems SO long ago...

Well… in a minute I’m going. Right now, I think I’m going to give this baby a hug. Time flies quickly as we live with no tethers.
Can I say just one last thing? This blog today happened when I was having a moment of “rush” do this.. do that.. hurry hurry hurry.. and I was watching the stock market crumble then repair and ..
sigh, you get the picture.
The whole reason I sat down was to remind myself what’s important to me.
My family is important to me. My business is important to me. YOU, my reader are important to me. And I think with the state of the world today we need to reach out to each other and share with comfort the fact that we are all part of this one world. Now, everybody.. take a deep breath and remember what’s important to you.
Many Blessings,
Renita a.k.a. Sweetgrass a.k.a Vintagemomcreations a.k.a. Self Representing Jewelry Artist #1688

Father’s Day

Can you believe Father’s day is just right around the corner? I can’t. And wow are the boys hard to buy for! My husband believes if you need something ( see want) you just go get it. Therefore.. when holidays come, the kids and I are befuddled on what to get him!

So I think we’ve decided to bake a cake and let the kiddos decorate it. ( yay jen) and then.. I’m having a couple photos framed for him…

Here’s one..

How perfect is that?

Daddy’s Girl.

I remember my own daddy’s girl photo.. ya wanna see?

Me and my daddy..

1978 or so..

Wow.. look at those 70’s hot chic clothes huh?

It’s amazing how the time flys. I lost my father in 1994 and I swear it seems like yesterday we were posing for this photo together.

Remember your daddy’s on father’s day little girls. Time flys…
