The Big News!!

Am I back yet? not quite, but coming along well after only two weeks.
But I had to take some time to post my Big News! Remember I mentioned I had something really special to share, Well.... My first Full length article A Passion For Etching , four pages with stepped out photos was published in the new Belle Armoire jewelry. YEAH!!!!!!!!!! I'm over the moon excited!!

I did two etched pieces using stamps and jewelry finding all from Alpha Stamps

Stampington did such a wonderful job with the photography.
My work never looked so good.
Just wish I was a better writer!

They also published my Steampunk pendant, again using supplies from Alpha Stamps

This was a total surprise, A necklace I made from beads, vintage lace and flowers.
The Butterfly came from my dear friend Jo at My Paper Playhouse, Where she painted
the beautiful verdigris finish on a metal butterfly I had won in her giveaway last year.

Well I do hope to be back soon. I'm sitting longer and starting to feel like my old self.

Oh and if you haven't signed up for my giveaway yet, be sure and do it soon.
See you all very soon!!!!

Trust The Lost Generation

A Pre-post

Had a little fun with a play on words with the newest images Gatsby from
Artistic Outpost . A masculine tag and a Acrylic charm, a bit of grunge and
some distress inks all make for a little creative fun.
