So when D'Wana posted in the group that she was selling custom leather cuffs to raise money for her trip to Zambia, Africa in June I knew I wanted to help her out if I could. Look at these beautiful pieces of art:
....the only problem was coming up with what word I wanted on my cuff...
I went through the normal list...
Brave - have one that says that
Mama - yeah I hear that enough that I don't need it on my wrist
Love - have one that says that
Lynda - made one that says that too....
I was getting desperate...I wanted to help D'Wana and didn't want to leave her hanging waiting for me...
Then the tragedy in Boston hit and I just sat and sat and sat...wondering what this world was coming to...what type of world are my girls growing up in... and then a sense of peace came over me as I realized that from even the most horrible of events...the world around begins to FLOURISH again with a new life...new beginning...and so my word was chosen...

I am looking forward to getting my new bracelet. I am posting a few samples that she has shared on her facebook page so you can see the amazing work she does...and if you are so inclined to order one for yourself... you can contact her via email at dwanalea @ gmail.com. Her bracelets are $20-30 and are worth every penny!!! Or you can find her on facebook.
