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.

Some new earrings I have made this week.


Here are 5 red bookmarks.  Some of these are so much nicer in person than I could get the pictures to show.

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?

I won!

I am so excited I won something.  A couple days ago I found the Pink Persimmon blog and they had a giveaway for a Plaid Gift pack everyday for 7 days.  So I entered everyday, never thinking I would win as they had tons of people entering everyday.  But I won one of the gift packs!!!!!  So now I get to stalk the mailman to receive this gift pack.  I am not sure what is in it, but as I love Mod Podge and Plain paint, I imagine I will love everything in it.

Hello.  Welcome to my blog!?! Stay tuned to how this turns out.  Though beware I will be changing a lot in the beginning as I learn what I can do.  :)

As a first post, I am going to attempt to add a couple pictures of some recently made items. Interesting story about these 2 pairs of earrings.  Yesterday my sister stopped by to borrow a hot glue gun, and decided to rummage through my earring stash, as she said she needed some new pairs to wear to work.  And as little sisters are always doing, she picked out my favorite pair.  So I ended up making her a couple pairs.
