  3. Hi Michele! Your jewelry is very beautiful! I was moved by how much work you put into making sure all of those neglected animals got the best care possible.

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday!


  4. The earrings you show are beautiful! My roommate makes a lot of necklaces, but I've yet to talk her into making earrings for me. You are so creative and talented!

  5. Happy Holidays Michele!!! Thanks for the HAED sale! Checking out your blog, this is my first visit. Looking forward to following it in the future!

  6. Hi Michele and Bob...Love your x-stitch charts (but of course you already know that!) Your jewelry line is gorgeous!! I think about you guys and your family and wonder how you are fairing after such a devastating happening in your lives (tornado). Hope your family has a wonderful holiday season (We are looking forward to our youngest son who is 31 returning from Iraq where he has served 15 months in special forces out of Ft. Bragg. He is now done with putting in over 5 years with the Army. he and his wife will spend 5 days at Christmas with us.) I appreciate the HAED sales as it allows me to add to my stash. You guys are the best!! Take care. My e-mail address is:

    Hugs....Judy Besore

  7. I would love to be entered into your contest for you fabulous jewelry! Thanks for the chance!


  8. Have a great Christmas and New year, all the best for 2009.

    You make gorgeous Jewellery too.


  9. I have been visiting fairly often, not always leaving little comments but I so applaude your efforts in trying to save all those poor animals... hope you are able to help many more in finding good homes.
    I wish you all the best for the holidays, a warm and safe haven with loved ones around plus a new year filled with all the excitment and none of the heartache you had this year!
    Happy Holidays!

  10. What a lucky day to come by Heaven and Earth Designs! You are certainly one busy gal (no small projects for sure!) and generous to boot!

  11. Hello, Michelle!

    Your jewelry is really special. I keep thinking about the "story" earrings, trying to imagine connections between people, who decided to wear words from the same story one day... It is truly fascinating...
    I was moved by your animal rescue story, most of all animals I ever had were rescued from streets. Even though seeing their suffering breaks my heart, they bring so much positive energy in your life, and so appreciative. By the way, I had a poodle, and by the age of 12 she lost most of her vision, but she was pretty active, being able to trust her keen sense of smell. OK, enough :-)))
    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  12. nice to see some more coments on your blog michel..

  19. Hello Michele. To be honest I have not looked at your jewelry much, but in response to your post I took a look at the Etsy store. You make some very gorgeous things! Between jewelry and cross-stitch, you have quite a bit of talent. Hope your holiday season is wonderful.


  20. Hi Michelle ~

    You make such beautiful jewelry. Between that and your HAED charts you are one talented lady!

    I think it is sooooo wonderful you're helping those animals to get the care they need and to find good homes. 5 of our 6 pets were rescues and they've turned out to be the best little additions to our family.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family. ;)
