Charm Bracelet Gold Metallic | Squared
I was really impressed by the craftsmanship when I saw this bracelet which was created, painted and manufactured in the mountains of Haiti. The bracelet is made with large 10mm beads. My bracelet was gold with the word love on it. My only issue with is because I have a small wrist it really didn’t fit properly.

Doodling For Tree Huggers & Nature Lovers
We choose this adult coloring book to honor Earth Day and recommend it as a Mother’s Day gift because it contains more than 50 fun and inspirational prompts, doodling exercises, and outdoorsy factoids which are illustrated by professional artist Gemma Correll, who takes readers on a doodling journal in hopes to spark the imagination and explore, experiment, and brainstorm unique ways to doodle their favorite outdoor places and activities. The journal is a great way to unwind and distress and the perfect size which makes portable it and easily fits in a purse or backpack. We recommend finding your favorite tree to sit under on a sunny peaceful day and start doodling.
