New Stuff

Here is what I have been up to this week...

We had our first band concert.  Doesn't she look so happy that I had the camera?? Of course, in her defense, this is probably about the 100 picture taken before the concert.  Isn't that a nice picture? It is from my new camera,in a school gym, and across the room.  I know could have been better, but my other camera couldn't do this :).

In other news, will have some beading stuffs to post tomorrow.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

I had a busy Morning on Friday.  First I attempted to sleep in, just wasn't working.  So then I sat down, and made a couple pairs of earrings. I have some of them in groups so there are not so many pictures posted.  I am working on getting a "page" up on the blog to showcase different items I have made. I currently have bookmarks and cell charms.  Will add more soon.  All of these were taken with my new camera! Off to play with making some key chains.

I am so sorry to have been so quiet for the last month!! I just seem to be out of time lately.  I have started working at Target for holiday money, so that is what is eating most of it up.

I do have or hope to have some new pictures for you on Friday! I participated in a Kris Kringle Bead Swap, and I have a lovely gift that I received today, plus I sent one that I hope my "mark" likes as well as I liked mine! This was My first swap of any kind, so really nervous!

Couple new items to point out.  One, I added a button on the left for a group called BD Friends.  These really talented ladies all have shops on a site called Shop Homemade with their wonderful wares.  Please go visit them! Two, If you are not following Lyric's blog, she is home and the surgery went well! Thank you for your prayers!

Well, I have more but it will have to wait.

Lyric Nichols is 4 months old, she is the daughter of my good Friend Travis.

Lyric will be having open heart surgery in the next 2 weeks. Travis's Insurance is paying for most of the medical bills, but not all of them. Lyric's aunt explained to me that she will need two shots after surgery that are not covered under the insurance, and they are $900 each, and I am sure more charges like that will be piled on them.

There are a couple of fund raisers already underway here, but I am not sure how much money they can raise by selling cupcakes.

I know it is close to Christmas. I will be adding have added a Paypal button in the next day or two. ALL Donations go straight to Lyric's medical bills.

Even if you can not send any money, please keep her and her family in your prayers.

If you would like to read her story, or updates, her mother has a blog.  You can find it here:

MIssing in Action

Sorry for the lack of post lately!  I have just been busy, and allergies are bad this year! Hope to have some new stuff posted in the next day or two.

Thursday, October 7, 2010


Well, it has been a few days since I could post here.  Unfortunately no new jewelry, bookmarks or anything crafty.  I have been fighting allergies and they are winning.  I did make some new tags for my display.

Take number 1, the sample run (even on regular paper):

And here is the Finished piece:
 To show what it would look like with a bookmark in it:
Sorry for the really bad pictures, but was a little excited to show. So what do you think?

My Prize

Here is what I received from the plaid giveaway! Love it, can not wait to make something.


Few new things for today.

1) Did you see my cute bat I found? The Hector Bat was created by Tana Cox. I found it on her blog called Birdseeds.

2)I added an email button on the left side.

3) I added a slide show bookmarks of the right side.

4) I completed 4 black bookmarks.  I had to push myself to not just fall on the ole' black and red color combination.  So I hope you enjoy.  Of course this means just one more color of bookmarks to go. I guess I should explain this a little.  See my sister was showing off the bookmark she stole I gave her.  That started a list of 5 colors that a co-worker of my sister might want to purchase for Christmas presents. So, me being the overachiever that I have a tendency to be, decided that there needed to be at least 4 of each color for her to choose from.  That led me to finally start a blog, so it would be easier to show pictures of what I create. So here we are.  

I think this is all for today.  I may post the necklace/bracelet/earring set my mother gave my Aunt Bea for her birthday.  Tho I can say that most of my mother's Christmas gifts are least the ones for her to give.  Now to just work on my list.

Danielle's Birthday

On a side note, my cousin Danielle's birthday is this Sunday.  My sister made her a card, and I am enclosing a bracelet for her.  Should be back to making the rest of the bookmark's on Sunday or Monday.  Thou if you are lucky I will show some of the new earring I have made recently.

Mom's Birthday Part 2

I finished a necklace and a bracelet for my mother.  Both were new style to me (and would have been to her).  Since she knew I was making her something, I took them to her house to show her.  She loved them both.  I told her i had to bring them back to get pictures, but some how she managed to keep the bracelet. But I do have picks of the necklace for you. It is about 32 inches long!

Hot Pink

The next color on the book mark list is Hot Pink.  I have 5 hot pink book marks.  The first one was the hardest to photograph as one side of the ribbon is hot pink and the other side is red.

The other 4 the ribbon is just hot pink.

So three colors left to work on Black, Red, and Sage Green.....Any votes which first?
