June Birthstone – Pearl Moonstone Alexandrite

You lucky ducky girls who are born in June are lucky enough to have three birthstones!  {Pearl ♥ Moonstone ♥ Alexandrite}  While I obviously love pearls (I get to play with pearls every single day – lucky me), I also have a great appreciation for all three of the sparkly, stunning June birthstones.

Moonstone is a semi-transparent stone, and I think it is definitely one of the best at capturing light in the most beautiful way.  It gives off a milky white light that can also include little flashes of blue when the light hits it just right.  Moonstone often looks as if it has a little bit of a glow to it.

It’s easy to see how the stone got its name; moonstone seems to have captured the stunning light of the moon.  In ancient Rome, people used to believe that you could identify the different phases of the moon within moonstone.  While we don’t believe that the stone physically changes appearance with the moon’s phases anymore, it certainly does have an ethereal, almost otherworldly appearance.

When it is micro-faceted into the beautiful little gemstones I use in my jewelry designs, it plays with the light beautifully.  I love pairing it with silver and pearls as the moonstone seems to throw light against the other surfaces of the pieces.  It’s so much fun to turn moonstone jewelry to different angles and see how it changes as it catches the light.

If you’re on the lookout for the most traditional June birthstone, pearl is your girl.  I absolutely adore creating pearl birthstone jewelry for all the lovely June birthday babies!  The pearls I use are genuine cultured freshwater pearls in a luscious creamy white color, natural pink, and sometimes I even have some peachy or lavender pearls available.  Pearls have the most amazing timeless elegance and have traditionally symbolized purity and innocence – pearl jewelry makes a perfect baby gift.

Alexandrite has a controversial history that started all the way back in 1834 in Imperial Russia.  While a miner was working in an emerald mine, he came across a gem that he thought was an emerald, but once he held it up to the light, he realized it was something new entirely.  It flashed different colors depending on the light.  It is fabled that the stone got its name from Alexander II because it was discovered on his birthday.

The Russian mines were exhausted in the early 20th century leaving almost a century until a new deposit was discovered, this time in Brazil.  Natural Alexandrite is extremely rare, and incredibly expensive.  So, in my jewelry creations, I use genuine Swarvoski Austrian crystals in the pale lavender of Alexandrite, so she can celebrate her June birthday without the crazy price tag!  Not to mention, because they are represented with a crystal, they are extra sparkly!

Whether you are searching for a classic, traditional June birthstone gift in pearls or something more ethereal like the sweet moonstone with the blue flashes, or the beautiful and elegant lavender alexandrite, you lovely June birthday girls will find meaningful, stunning birthstone jewelry at Little Girls’ Pearls.

Second Star to the Right Free Printable

Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning - Peter Pan | free 8x10 printable from Little Girl's Pearls ♥

I have two boys.  They are so old now.  I can’t believe how quickly they’ve grown.  12 and 16 is far too old for this mama.  When did this happen?  When they were little, their imaginations soared.  Just like Peter Pan and Wendy through the night sky.  They were gleeful and giggly and silly and wonderful!  Now that they are older they are just as imaginative.  Far more creative and brilliant than I ever imagined they could be.  The things their minds dream up are crazy amazing and wonderful and insane.  They make this mama proud.  It’s amazing how it’s hard to watch them grow up, but it’s so wonderful to see the people they have become.  They bring a joy to my heart that I will never be able to explain.  I’m such a goof – I’m tearing up a bit thinking about it!

My husband and I always joke that before kids we never lost our temper, yelled, worried or cried nearly as much as we do now.  However, we also never laughed as hysterically, dreamed as big or imagined as much as since our boys joined our family.  My mama hope and wish is that they never lose that creative and imaginative outlook on life.  Enjoy, my sweet not-so-little boys.  Know that this mama is right there behind you, cheering you on as you soar through the night – to the second start to the right and straight on ’til morning.

From Small Beginnings Come Great Things Free Printable from Little Girl's Pearls - perfect for her nursery or big girl room.

When searching around for quotes for your free printable this month, this old American Proverb really spoke to me right now.  I am a worry wart.  I mean seriously, I worry about my kiddos all…the…time!  My boys are 12 and 15, which I truly can’t believe.  I have a slide show of their itty bitty baby faces looking at me from my computer screen daily.  I absolutely cannot fathom that from those itty bitty babies I now have a spunky pre-teen and a ginormous teenager.  How on earth did that happen???

from small beginnings - a sweet free printable 8x10 for her baby nursery or little girl room | Little Girl's Pearls ♥

When our oldest was born we had nursing issues.  He was so tiny and sad because he was hungry.  It just broke my heart.  We spent weeks going daily back and forth to the next town to the lactation consultant.  It took 3 months, but we finally got the hang of it.

Come great things - a lovely free printable from Little Girl's Pearls for her baby nursery, baby shower gift or big girl room.

In those early days I was so worried about him gaining weight and growing.  Now he’s over 6 feet tall, taller than his daddy, and still growing.  He can polish off a 3 pound pot roast and a couple of pounds of carrots if we let him.  Oh my word.  So in the middle of it, we were terrified and worried constantly…but now from his small beginnings, he has definitely grown and blossomed into a wonderful young man doing great things.  He’s studying for his driver’s test (what?!?!?) and has become an awesome farmer and wood turner.  So even in the midst of the worry, no matter how tiny your little one is…just know that great things will come from her small beginnings!!

So here’s a big old hug to you, mama!  We are totally in this together.  Every age brings a new “small beginning” and in the end, great things will certainly abound!  So print it out and hang it in her nursery or big girl room. ♥

I love you more than all the stars free printable

I love you more than all the stars free printable | Little Girl's Pearls

You may not know why, but this is so near and dear to my heart!  Firstly, I married an astronomy geek.  ♥  Secondly said amazing astronomy geek works on Vandenberg Air Force base here on the gorgeous Central Coast of California.  We are incredibly lucky to get to watch various rockets launch on a relatively regular basis.

There’s something so magical and amazing watching the rockets soar into outer space right in front of our very eyes.  So because their daddy does what he does & they have grown up watching these amazing fiery balls of light jet off into space, both of our boys are completely in love with the stars.  Our oldest is convinced he’ll be traveling to Mars and has decided to study sustainable farming, so he can be the first Mars farmer.

I love you more than all the stars free printable.

So while their feet are right here on the ground, their heads are all floating among the beautiful stars.  Giant balls of gas and fire that capture our imagination, creativity and love from a very young age.

My boys know that when I tell them that I love them more than all the stars that it is a BIG deal.  I love them so much, and this is just an itty bitty way to remind them.  Do you have a kiddo with her head in the stars?  This free printable might make a fun little graphic for her wall or a cover of a notebook.

It’s set up to print on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper.  I used photo paper, but feel free to use card stock or whatever paper you have on hand.  If you’d like it in a frame, you can cut 1/2″ off the top and the bottom & 1/4″ off left and right to fit in an 8″ x 10″ frame.  It’s a PDF document, so you can use any free PDF reader to open it.
