Back to School!

It's that time of year again... another Summer is almost over and the kids are going back-to-school. Are the kids excited? Mine are! They love seeing their friends every day.

I started LanaBetty to challenge myself, to learn new skills, and ultimately to make beautiful jewelry for others to feel good about themselves too.
