My first stab at jewelry

January 25, 2010

I felt intimidated by this jewelry swap, but the lure of it was too great!

So here are my lovelies~

These are both made with paper beads.

Finished off with microbeads.

The earrings on the right include my favorite go to in text-a Nancy Drew book.

And the last two:

Not sure if the pic shows it clear enough but the earrings on the left are tiny snippets of German text and a even tinier pic of a woman and a little boy.

The earrings on the right seem to be the favorite of folks. I don’t think my pics does the colors justice on these. The wrapped beaded ones are a sea foam green that is pearly.


Retail Therapy

January 21, 2010

So I have been a bit down lately….job, life, job, life, job…you get the picture…

Found that  I just wanted a little boost to my mood.  I know that shopping is a temporary fix, but I wanted to share the bit of goodies I bought.

Beware, not one stinkin’ item did I need, I just bought stuff that I liked,  things that made me smile.

So share the smile on the porch. 🙂

The umbrella has the cutest face!       The babushka jump drive I saw in a Rachel Ray magazine, neat huh?

Just cuz

This is a silly little atc I made using some stickers that came with a pair of tennis shoes Katelynn got for Christmas. I don’t ever remember stickers coming with MY tennis shoes when I was a kid!

Her name is Becky Bones and she is all about

being a eco-friendly chick! 😉

Gett’n all zetti

January 9, 2010

I am a huge fan of Teesha Moore and her zettiology style,  so I couldn’t resist the zetti fairies swap on Atcs forAll.  I still feel like a baby at the zetti style, but I feel so happy when it’s done!

And a few more

These are my twinchies for the Advertisement category on my swap on SCS. Both of these images came out of a 1944  Women’s Day magazine-original price a whooping 4 cents!

I couldn’t resist a bit of

vintage beauty.

And for a little funny animal category……
