Idle Hands is a breath of fresh air in Santa Cruz. Bringing more eclectic and unique styles than you can find in most other stores. My boyfriend and I have both shopped there and found rad things, plus the staff is really friendly which is a nice change from the attitude you see at some of the more "hip" stores.

I bought a sturdy golden key necklace from Idle Hands for my best friend as her birthday present. Those rings have the same tough & tender vibe I've fallen in love with.

Always beautiful!(:
written by Heidi Riedel , September 03, 2010
All of the rings are completely stunning and well crafted. The chief heads are my absolute favorite though! I was in the store a lot before school started again with my friend who would always play some songs on the piano. Thank you so much for letting us play! & Letting me purchase the pink sweater with the eagle. So cozy and cute. Wearing it at the moment with a floral skirt. Keep being awesome! - Heidi smilies/smiley.gif

I actually don't own many rings because I only like to wear i at a time, as a statement. I really like these though, they remind me of my native roots. and I love Idle Hands!

Oh what fun it is to imagine one of those beautiful rings on my finger as I type this email! Maybe I'll use a trick I learned from the 'Secret' and imagine it as already mine, on the way to my mailbox! A girls gotta dream :-D Thanks for the fun

Idle hands?.....I love the name. Beautiful stuff!
Laced skirts!
written by Ang, September 01, 2010
I really like laced skirts for this fall because you can pair them with cute belts, chunky boots, and more. There are many designs coming out for them which adds a cool twist and over all they are unique, romantic, and classy. They're perfect for a lot of occasions! I wear them to school, nights out, and everyday use; or if you're going for more formal you can get a laced dress.

I love these rings!
written by Elise Heidy, September 01, 2010
Ever since I was a little girl I have loved rings. When I was little I used to beg my grandmother to let me go through her jewelry box and try on every ring, and now as an adult I still find myself asking her every time I go to visit. These rings are gorgeous!

Everybody’s for recycling, right? So why are we all doing it wrong? Our reporter gets down and dirty to uncover 10 secrets that will finally make the recycling process make sense

 

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
