Finally some PLAY TIME

Yes I finally found some play time and
 it sure felt good to be able to create again.
I made some Shabby Chis ATC's
for the Yahoo group I'm in.

Stitched together lots of pretty papers.
Of course whats shabby chic without lace?

and pearls and flowers.

Then I created this Sacred Bracelet for my Etsy shop.
Full of vintage crosses, medals, rhinestones and crystals.

Hope you all found some creative time this weekend.
On Friday I'm off to the Farm chix show in Washington with my
girlfriends. Can't wait to see what treasure we'll find!

Published- Catch up

Hey bloggers. Long time no post. No I didn't fall off the face of the earth
 although I felt like it. I have been very sick.
Thought I might end up back in the hospital but
luckily everything turned out o.k and I'm finally back to my old self.
Not much new in creating lately but I did receive a
complimentary copy of the
Catch up issue and they published a couple of my pieces.

Two of my very faves from the Paris Exposition plates at

A fun little hanging using those same images.

I'll be over to visit with you soon. Missed seeing what you all are up to.

Oh and the little disaster at our home is just about fixed. Yeah!!!!
Thanks to my DH working his little bum off.
Don't know how I'd manage without him.

Faux Friday-Wakeboarding

Its been a long time since I posted a Faux Friday.
Its not that I haven't been working!
 I have. Its just most of the time I forget to bring my camera to a job.
Here's one I did recently that was a lot of fun.
It was for a boys room.
They wanted a mural of the boys wake boarding.
After I finished the first boy.... You guessed it they wanted the boat too!
Its hard to tell in the photo but its a very long wall and a very long boat!

On another wall I added the younger boy and his dad.
Needless to say the kids LOVE it!
Yes sometimes my job Rocks!!!

Do you Get Inspired?

I know I do!
I first saw some necklaces something like this in the last issue of
Belle Armoire Jewelry.
They were done by the artist Diana Frey
I again saw them on Pinterest and knew I just had to give it a try.

I decided to create one for my dear friend Mindi for her Birthday.
 I gave it to her already so now I can share it with you.
She loved it by the way!

Available in my Etsy Shop
This piece I created for Mothers day.
 Made from a vintage Mother of Pearl heart
and some fun charms.

Linking these to Brendas blog Bumble Bees and Butterflies
For her Tuesdays Treasures.
