Need a Snow Day?

This is too much fun!! Create your own unique snowflakes. You can print them up for your craft projects. The more snowflakes made, the more $$ donated to the Salvation Army.

Can you say OBSESSION?

Here are a few more new pretties. I've had to limit myself to 1 pendant per day (someone's got to do the laundry around here, and feed 4 mouths, and sweep the floors... you get the picture). I skipped one day just because I didn't have the good "juju". I almost felt guilty. My soldering skills are coming along and I'm getting better each day.

A is for Artiste

Here's another new pendant. My soldering is much better and it's only the third one! I attempted to solder a Swarovski crystal on the front. It's kinda glopped on. I am having so much fun with this. The back didn't scan very well. That's glitter disguised as dirt. I'm going to have to find out how people take pictures of their artwork.

First Attempts

These are my new babies. I have become obsessed with paper and I already had the obsession with jewelry. I combined them both and started making soldered pendants. Obviously, I have to work on my techniques (just a tad bit sloppy!) I've been wanting to make these microscope slide pendants for years and I've finally done it. Yea!!

For Lex

Here's more cards I've made. I'm into these monogram cards. I made these for Alexis. No excuse for not keeping in touch!
