Doing the happy Dance-Published

I received my complimentary copy of Belle Armoire Jewelry
and I'm doing the happy dance!

Etched Aviaries
They published a jewelry set I made with stamps from
Layers of Color.
I Love how Stampington photographed my earrings inside a bird cage.
So clever of them!

The matching pin.
Last year when I was guest artist for Layers of Color I
needed to create something with these bird stamps.
That's when the idea came to me to use them as jewelry.
Pick up the latest copy to see how you can create your own Etched Aviaries
and just in time for spring!

Vicki's Valentine Win

Look at the wonderful Valentine win I received from Vicki at
She did such a darling job of packaging everything up. She made the sweetest bag with a doily and my initial on it. Some awesome little metal embellishments are in the bag that sits in the sweet tin. It even has one of those pins (the kind we used as kids for our locker when we went swimming). Remember those? 
Check out that # tag. Isn't that the coolest! and the paper fringe and punched hearts. All so sweet.
Thank you so much Vicki. I love it all!

Hippity Hop Easters on Its Way

Spring is on its way... and I have visions of daffodils blooming,
 Brightly colored Easter eggs hidden amongst the flowers
 and new green grass growing in the yard.

To get you started how about some sweet Peet pots filled with all things spring!
I created these using stamps from the newest sheet at Oxford Impressions
Easter Bunny
Can't you just smell the flowers?

I had so much fun making these. Now come on spring.....

Something A little different

Have you all heard of Pinterest? If not there's a link on my sidebar,
you must go check it out. An amazing site where everyone shares photos of things that interest them.
It was there where I spotted the most amazing pendants made from Silver clay. Yes it was really silver with the real price that goes with them . One piece of AMAZING jewelry can go for $650.00 to $850.00.
I'm not saying its not worth it, it is REAL silver after all. but on my budget I'd never be able to own one.
SO... I set out trying to create my own version using a differet product.
 More about that later.
 I made this as a Thank You  for my Dear blog friend Tracy
who sent me a wonderful Christmas gift.
Remind me next year to have some Thank You gifts Pre-made. LOL
It has a little faux door and a lock and key.
I got word that she received it already so its o.k to share!

My GF's and I are planning a play day with that silver clay.
I can't wait to give it a try!
