Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,



I will be guest posting at Design Mom next week (those of you who know me in person can just stifle the laughter).

I told Gabrielle I wanted to do something around jewelry. I have fond memories of hours spent rifling through my own mother's jewelry box on rainy childhood afternoons. Every object in it had its own story and meaning, from the sterling bracelet from which hung a charm with my own name, to exotic looking costume beads, to the solitaire ring with the empty claws, from which her engagement diamond had loosed and disappeared one day into the shag of our carpets, never to be found.

I remember with special warmth how she kept homemade pieces from my sister and me among the other treasures. I do the same, and will post some of these next week. I'd like to do a little montage of child-made jewelry for moms, in fact. If you have some to show off, please send me a photograph of it to kyranp(at)gmail(dot)com, and I will try to include it. Be sure to tell me your name, or blog name, and the child's age when the piece was made.
