the new little venture + a giveaway!

Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to.....

It's a new little venture that  I've started with the help of my daughter Ryan.  We love making bracelets it, and have gotten numerous compliments on, we've decided to start a business...a tiny one. :) 

The name:  If you know even just a bit of spanish, you'll recognize that madre y hija means mother and daughter.  I thought this was fitting for a couple of reasons.  The first is pretty we're mother and daughter, but the second is where my mom comes into play.  You see, I have this pretty amazing mother...who is this fiery woman who came to the United States from Mexico in her mid-20's...with the determination to do something, become someone, contribute something.  I would have to say that she's done a wonderful job of accomplishing all of that...and she continues to do so everyday.  Growing up, I remember her always being very crafty, and even as an adult, she and I have worked on numerous projects together.  In fact, she's made me some pretty cool bracelets herself.

So in a way, madre y hija is symbolic of both my mother and I.....and now me and Ryan .  Which is pretty cool.

The logo:  I had this image in my mind of what I wanted the logo to look like.  I mocked something up and then shared it with my dear friend Matt, who perfected it for me.  A huge thank you to him. :)

The bracelets:  They are all handmade, and no two are exactly alike.  We are in constant search of new color combinations and new beads, etc. 

How do you make one yours?:  I'm in the process of setting up a shop on Etsy, but in the meantime, you are welcome to email me at:  I'll let you know once we're officially up and running on Etsy. 

Pricing: for $6...or two for $10.
