Holiday Bling Blog hop


It's amazing how the holidays are coming  so close now.  Even though there are always some holidays some where on this earth  ( and we must celebrate all of them) , this is the time when we get into the spirit of celebrating holidays!.  That is the main theme of this blog hop coordinated by Shelly and Marlene


It was posted in August sometimes and we dived in getting  busy  making holiday ornaments.

 It could be any ornaments...to dress up the tree or your home  or your self.

My partner is  Cynthia  O'Toole who makes cute earrings. Here is her face book link

I sent her my ornament on Sept 15th.  Want to see how it looks?

Here it is:


I am into making  the Tree of Life ornaments these days.  So that is what I sent her.  Cynthia likes blue, pink and purple.  So I chose turquoise, one purple pink teardrop bead and some crystals,  and it is made with copper with a pink hue.  Turquoise brings good luck and healing and it is also the stone for the month of December.  May she be blessed and this little token goes to symbolize that wish of mine.

 I hope she likes it.

This Christmas is special for her and I hope she can wear this ornament as a pendant or she can hang it on her Christmas tree.

Just a little ago I found a packet from Cynthia waiting in my mail box and when I open it see what  I got


 and another one:


Aren't they darling?  The cutest angels and Christmas tree!.

Thank you, thank you Cynthia.  I love them both and will be wearing them for sure during the Christmas time

Our  special holiday is Divali- the festival of lights, which is just about a month away. I wish you HAPPY DIVALI - may your life be filled with love and light .

 What is yours?

Here are the rest of the participants.  Please do pay them a visit too to see what they have done.

My family celebrates Christmas. Thank you for asking. Your trees of life are beautiful by the way. I've never seen ones with spirals at the bottom.

Jo-Ann said...

Your tree of life is stunning.

Kepi said...

The earrings are absolutely beautiful. Love all the pieces.

Shirley said...

You both made such cute pieces. I love holiday earrings, and those are so fun! You really do a great job on your tree of life pieces, this is gorgeous!

Mary Hicks said...

I just love the little earrings. Angels just make me happy, and Christmas trees mean winter with evergreen smells, cinnamon and fires burning. Lovely!

windbent said...

You did a great job on your ornament and I'm sure she'll love it. Thank you for sharing Cynthia's work also since she doesn't have a blog. She is a very sweet lady.

Anindita, the Tree of Life pendant is beautiful and so representative of the renewal, stability and hope that we all seek. Perhaps when we view the "ending" of yet another year, we desire to feel connected to past and future.

When you wear Cynthia's lovely gifts, I hope you will enjoy thinking about the person who made them just for you! I am grateful to have participated in this swap, and learned about other special celebrations at this time of year. May you experience light and love, joy and peace, now and always!

Loved your Tree of Life ornament--turquoise and copper are one of my favorite combinations. The earrings are very precious! Happy Davila to you! Enjoy your Holiday!

Shelley Graham Turner said...

The pendant you made for your partner, Cynthia is so cool. I admire your wire wrapping skills - very nice.

The earrings ARE cute! You both did a wonderful job.

Anindita, thank you for participating in our blog hop and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I just love your tree of life pendant - so detailed ... and those earrings are adorable =)

Marlene Cupo said...

Your tree of life is just so stunning, I have no words other than WOW. When Shelley and I were discussing this hop we wanted to include everyone who celebrates their own special winter holidays.
Thank you for being in our HBBH!

Those earrings are adorable! I am partial to the Christmas tree earrings! And your tree of life is stunning! I am going to learn to make those!

Toltec Jewels for Jewel School Friends said...

Anindita,

I wish you HAPPY DIVALI also - may your life be filled with love and light too!

I have a beautiful picture for Divali, the Festival of Lights, that I post on Facebook. It's a beautiful holiday!

The Tree of Life ornament is lovely! The gemstones are protective and petty. As are the festive earrings you received.

Happy Holidays,
Rita

Alicia said...

Hi Dita,

Happy Divali! I believe the earrings from Cynthia are perfect: full of sparkly light :)

And your Tree of Life is gorgeous, I love them!

Beautiful exchange you two had!
