Gargoyles

The actual use of Gargoyles was meant to scare off evil spirits and be a form of protection, but these gargoyle beads are still really freaky looking and are a great addition to Halloween jewelry.

And don’t forget about skulls!

Halloween would not be complete without skull beads! Skulls conjure up ideas of death and are scary looking to many people. However skulls were also traditionally used as a form of protection and to scare off bad spirits.

Please Note: Green Girl Beads DO NOT FIT ON PANDORA bracelets.

All of these really cool Green Girl Studios beads are made of pewter and the beads are fairly large, so they would be perfect as a focal bead or pendant, plus they are really affordable since Pewter is a lot less expensive than Sterling Silver.

Green Girl Studios beads, pendants, charms, clasps, and findings are available at Bead Lovers Korner Etsy Shop.

Inspirational words for the hustle and bustle of Christmas

Inspirational words are sometimes all we need to change our thoughts. During this time of year life can be so hectic, people are busy shopping for Christmas gifts, decorating the tree, going to parties, etc. All while still going about the normal routines of life.

The hustle and bustle is double time during the Holiday Season, and sometimes it is hard to find the Joy that was meant to be felt by everyone.

I know that in the past I have personally sought the answers for how not to get lost during the hustle and bustle of the season.

Inspirational words can change your whole perception

I wanted to do one last blog post for this year, but didn’t think I would have time until I read the back of this new Green Girl Studios Pendant that I just received.

snail
Green Girl Studios Snail pendant

This Snail pendant and the inspirational words on the back are a reminder to slow down. Stop, focus and remember these words:

“For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under Heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1

I used to get all twisted up inside and these words of wisdom, along with the image of the snail are a reminder that everything will get done.

Another old saying that we had in the publishing business runs along the same lines:

There’s never enough time to do it right, but there is always time to do it over.

Strength

Strength to keep going

This year so much has happened in the world. The TV, radio and social media bring us evidence of so many tragedies, much evil and events that can make you flat-out scared for the future. So where do you find strength?

“Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

I can not tell you how many times this verse has saved me and given me the courage and the strength to continue during times of hardship or sorrow.

As this year comes to a close

I just want to say “Thank You so much” to everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, visited my website or Etsy shop. I thank everyone for their support and wish everyone a joyous Christmas and Happy New Year!

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased.” Luke 2:14
